From Faux Pas to Fabulous: Fashion Dos and Don

Interactive Fashion Dos and Don'ts 440: Challenge | Recap

Oxfords, not brogues? Houndstooth vs. herringbone? Brocade vs. jacquard? Jeggings vs. leggings?  

Have you ever wondered why socks with sandals are frowned upon or why white is off-limits after Labor Day?

In the fashion industry, there are several established rules and guidelines designed to help consumers navigate the complexities of dressing appropriately for various social and professional settings. 

While these guidelines have previously dictated wardrobe choices, modern clothing trends encourage personal expression over strict adherence to the rules.

But to effectively break the rules, it's essential to first understand the rules. And that's what this week's challenge is all about!

🏆 Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share a fashion-related example to help users learn about clothing. Your example can be a list of dos and don’ts or something interactive so learners can explore different apparel combinations.
