One of the most frustrating things about fashion is knowing the rules. For one thing, other than dress codes, there are no discernible rules. People for the most part have to figure things out as they go along. However, there are internet sources. The only thing is that the internet does not always give a good representation of the real world. When certain topics are written on what to wear and what not to wear, they are based on the opinions of the author. One of the best indicators of what would work best on an individual is how people react to him when he is out and around in it.
This is not to say that articles on fashion should be disregarded. As a matter of fact, some articles can make great guidelines for what is available and what can be used in fashion. There are also internet articles that let people know what types of fashion items are available for the season. One can go by a checklist in order to make sure that they have everything they need for the season.
One of the best things about fashion is that there is enough room for one to make his own rules. Also, the one who is daring to step outside of convention is the one who is going to be a great influence to the fashion industry and people as a whole. This is one of the reasons that it is a good idea to experiment with different ideas.
