Life & Beauty Weekly: Beautiful You
Fashion Rules to Break
By Stacie Stukin for Life & Beauty Weekly
When it comes to fashion, it’s easy to play by the rules, but you may end up looking pretty much like everybody else. Instead, why not defy the conventional do’s and don’ts in favor of a style that's simple but also expresses a more updated, authentic you?
“Style is the way we speak to the world about who we are without words,” says Bobbie Thomas, the “Today” show’s style editor. “Challenge your own fashion rules by saying something new and unexpected.” Here’s a roundup of rule-bending advice:

In the beginning there was the fig leaf... and the toga.
Crinolines and ruffs. Chain mailand corsets.
What do these antiquated items have to do with the oh-so-twenty-first-century skinny jeans, graphic tee, and sexy pumps you slipped into this morning?
Everything! Fashion begets fashion, and life—from economics to politics, weather to warfare, practicality to the utterly impractical—is reflected in the styles of any given era, evolving into the threads you buy and wear today.
With the candidness, intelligence, and charm that made him a household name on Project Runway, Tim Gunn reveals the fascinating story behind each article of clothing dating back to ancient times, in a book that reads like a walking tour from museum to closet with Tim at your side.
From Cleopatra’s crown to Helen of Troy’s sandals, from Queen Victoria’s corset to Madonna’s cone bra, Dynasty’s power suits to Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits, Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible takes you on a runway-ready journey through the highs and lows of fashion history.
Drawing from his exhaustive knowledge and intensive research to offer cutting-edge insights into modern style, Tim explains how the 1960s ruined American underwear, how Beau Brummell created the look men have worn for more than a century, why cargo capri pants are a plague on our nation, and much more.
He will make you see your wardrobe in a whole new way.
Prepare to be inspired as you change your thinking about the past, present, and future of fashion!
