“Rules are meant to be broken,” is an expression that just about all of us are familiar with; some even make that a guiding principle in life. For fashionista Doe Deere, she holds this cliche to be especially true when it comes to the conventional rules of style and make-up. In fact, Doe Deere prides herself on breaking the rules and boundaries of fashion.
In a recent interview with Bustle she challenges seven rules of fashion that many of us have been told, or admonished, at some point in our lives. From “Dress your age,” to “Don’t wear too many colors,” Doe Deere argues why these old-fashioned guidelines should be kicked to the curb. And she’s got stunning, eye-catching pictures as proof to back up her points.
She shows how bold lip color and eye make-up really can be paired. She also explains how you can opt for colorful clothes and accessories even if you have unnaturally colored hair. Whether one wants to mix-patterns or wear socks with open-toed shoes, Doe Deere explains how we can defy the conventions, yet still look in-style and put-together while doing it. Doe Deere even shows us how clothes that we have always deemed to be worn only at certain events can be changed around and accessorized for an occasion that’s completely different.
