With every new season comes a set of new fashion rules the so called experts think we should all abide by. And while some of these rules turn out to be good suggestions in times of uncertainty, that doesn’t mean they are binding and must be used in every situation.
Doe Deere, founder and CEO of Lime Crime makeup line, feels the exact same way. If you have ever seen Deere, you know she makes her own rules. Some even call her the unicorn queen because nothing she does is in line with the rules.
Here are just a few fashion rules Deere herself feels every woman should break:
#1 – Never Mix Too Many Colors
Color can be a very dicey subject. So how much is too much is the million dollar question? That really depends on who you ask. Deere believes the key to making multiple colors work is coordination. This goes for your clothes, your hair, and your makeup.
Some of the combinations Deere loves include peach and periwinkle, and pink and green. When you look at these colors on paper they may seem a little too busy. But if you dabble around with them a bit you will see just how lovely they can be together.
#2 – Go Easy On The Patterns
If color has got you stumped, wait until you start messing around with patterns. For many women patterns are very intimidating. The good news however is they don’t have to be. Deere believes patterns are fun and the more you have, the better. While Deere loves print on print, she also points out there is no right or wrong way to pair patterns.
Her advice is to keep the color schemes the same. If you ever get stuck, sticking with the same color family can help alleviate the confusion.
