1. Thou Shalt Not Wear Black Heels with a White Dress.

Thou Shalt Not Wear Daytime Sandals for Evening Parties.

In this modern day and age, matching everything up is no longer a fashion crime. In fact, it shows how dedicated you are to your style. When it comes to matching fashion, just choose one subtle element that will keep all of your pieces modishly aligned.
Thou Shalt Not Match Your Clothes with that of your S.O.
Before, wearing an outfit that matches that of your beau can be seen as tacky. But now, it is deemed as a sign of fashion harmony and sizzling romance. If Brad Pitt and Angelina like wearing matching tuxedos, why shouldn’t you and your boyfriend do the same?
Thou Shalt Not Wear Socks with an Evening Dress.
If you are fashionably adventurous, then this rule is something you should break. Take inspiration from your favorite stars and wear your favorite socks to a nighttime gala. Wearing it with a similarly-colored pair of shoes will make you feel like you are wearing ankle boots – without the added bulk.
