10 Fashion Dos and Don'ts for 2013 ...


Every season we’re met with long lists of fashion dos and don’ts.

While these lists usually check off all the things you should and shouldn’t be wearing, I’m going to take a different approach.

Rather than being a slave to fashion, own it instead!

Check out these fashion dos and don’ts for the year ahead.

1. Do Have Fun with Fashion

When you take fashion too seriously, it can all get a bit boring.

As far as fashion dos and don’ts go, wear things that make you happy and don’t be afraid to experiment with different looks.

It’s a great time to go a little bit crazy with fashion since embellishments and color are really popular trends right now.

2. Don’t Be Afraid of DIYs

If there’s one thing that the last year has taught us, it’s that DIY is the new black.

Blogs and fashion websites buzzed with tonnes of DIYs based on the latest designer trends.

There’s a DIY for almost any skill level, so if you see something that you like but is out of your budget, get creative and figure out a way to do it yourself!

3. Do Shop with a Conscience

Lately we’ve been seeing a lot more focus on where our clothes come from and how they’re made.

Many mass produced pieces of clothing are made by workers under questionable conditions or with little consideration to the environment.

You could support local labels, buy clothing made under ethical conditions, or make a resolution to consume less.2

4. Don’t Play by the Rules

“If everybody looked the same, we’d get tired of looking at each other” – that’s how the song goes, right?

Well, the same goes for fashion.

When everyone is buying the same things and shopping at the same places, it can all get a bit boring.

Try putting your own personal twist on the latest trends.
