Fashion is an expression of one’s self and like art, you can create whatever you want, because fashion is personal.

You make your own rules regardless of what society may think but there are some lines you must not cross.

However, you can break the rules – but only if you’re creating a new standard. If that’s not your thing, it’s better to play it safe.

Here are TheCable Lifestyle’s fashion don’ts.

Pattern on Pattern

In fashion, minimalists most often come out looking good.

Don’t over complicate things, most people’s lives are already tangled and they don’t need sights that will cause them pain in their eyes.

Pattern on pattern works when the top is a deeper shade of the pants. Basically, both can be patterned but one must be excessive and the other, less so.

Don’t go around wearing two completely different patterns on each other. This is a close cousin to colour blocking.

If your goal is to look like a primary school student, then why not. The whole point of sandals is to leave your feet exposed and let them breathe. So why throw socks into the mix?

Suspenders and belt

It doesn’t take two people to drive a car, so you have no reason to wear a belt when you already have suspenders on or vice versa.

They are both designed for the same purpose – to hold your pants up.

Tucking in without a belt

Except you’re wearing a beltless trouser, this is not permissible.

Wearing a trouser with obvious belt holes without a belt when you’re tucked in will always make your outfit look empty or incomplete.

Undersized clothes

It’s always fun to wear big clothes because it’s relatively easy to pull it off.

But wearing undersized clothes looks like you just fell out of a younger sibling’s closet or you shop at Baby Gap.
