Rules to Not Live By

Rules, we are surrounded by rules and regulations.  Rules to live by, unwritten rules, house rules or just the golden rule.  But fashion really should have no rules.  Fashion is an expression of oneself, so how can you follow rules.
Cosmopolitan has complied a list of 20 rules we should give up. Some of them are rules your grandmother lived by. Yes, time to get rid of these rules.
Here are just a few of my favorites:

1.  Everyone should own _______. Boring. Who wants to own the same anything as everyone else?

2.  Never wear gold and silver jewelry together. Wearing gold and silver together actually looks better in a lot of cases than just wearing one or the other. The different metals compliment each other and stop you from looking too matchy matchy.  

3.  When it comes to jewelry, less is more. Layer that stuff on. If that's what you're into, the more the better. It's all just a matter of personal preference. When people say otherwise, what they are really saying is "I do it this way, so you should too" and that's rarely a good enough reason to do anything.
