Row 2 (Plus Size) – Shirt || Jeans || Shoes || Bag

I am a magazine hoarder. I collect magazine pages, tuck them in sheet protectors and file them away in binders. I have been doing this since 1993. Do I need an intervention? Maybe, LOL! Just one of my many hobbies.

On Sunday, while tidying up my office and filing pages away in binders, I came across a few pages of Instyle Magazine’s August 2009 issue that basically reported fashion rules that could be broken. Denim on denim was one of them. I never knew it was a fashion no no.

Rule # 11 – You cannot wear denim on denim. Says who? Thank goodness that is no longer a rule. Who comes up with this stuff anyway?

Denim on denim is a fabulous look. The new rule is to pair contrasting denims. Go with a chambray shirt and an indigo jeans. I have seen people in dark top and jeans and I have to say it does look off especially on men.

For fall/winter, pair your chambray shirt and skinny indigo jeans with an ankle wrap shoes and a studded bag. If you decided to wear an ankle wrap shoe, be ready to roll up your jeans. Add a pair of pantyhose to keep the feet warm. For a sexy flair, personally I will go with a lace tight.

How about creating a jumpsuit illusion by wearing a dark top and bottom? Something to experiment.
