Don't believe the hype: there are rules it's OK to break, especially in fashion, where notions of what's chic and what's not are constantly changing. A few years ago, it was almost unthinkable to show up to Fashion Week wearing but a humble pair of sneakers. These days, kicks are taking center stage and the fashion world has completely embraced athletic shoes. And yes, in case you were wondering, it is OK to wear white after Labor Day, too.
It's the same for many styles and silhouettes we used to call fashion don'ts. Socks with sandals are all the rage and people are mixing metallics freely. But nailing these so-called faux pas does call for the right execution. Take cues from these next style stars who make fashion don'ts work.
