Many in the fashion industry claim to follow unwritten, unspoken rules. Fashion magizines preach about breaking these so called " traditional" rules. I don't believe there are any, except for one.
Dress with grace and class.
This one compact sentence has a much larger meaning. When you dress to go out, do not dress for others. Dress with grace by being yourself and respecting yourself. Do you really think you'll earn more respect with a 3 inch shorter hemline? This does not mean one needs to dress like a nun, however one needs to leave a little to the imagination.
Dress with class. Accentuate and highlight your body, do not reveal it. Do not feel as though you need to always dress in skin tight clothes in order to be attractive. You are unique and beautiful, so dress to complement that.
