Of course, Im not telling you to go and smoke crack or rob someone or anything like that. At the end of the day, who in their right mind still thinks that Pete Dohertys crackish haze is admirable? Who daydreams about living in prison? No-one with common sense, and anyway Im not talking mo-rals. But Pah! to those everyday rules. Take style rules for an example.. Whenever Im asked for mine, I cringe at the idea of dictatorship. Just add a waist clinching belt how many times can this be regurgitated out the mouth of tellys most loved fashion experts?
Hypocritically, I myself have the title of the Fashion Expert on Radio 1. In the past Ive convinced an unknown Florence Welch to don a pair of sparkly pants for a photo shoot and Ive been attending fashion week since my years of a being a blagger in the early noughties so I do like to keep abreast of what one might to wear on them, so to speak. If Im honest its both flattering and fun to bring trends to the table, but when speaking about fashion Im always keen for debate. Choice, variety and options combined are the real root of individual style. Why not mix colours, prints, brands and wear a summer dress with thick tights in the winter? We are clothes hoarders of 2010 - of course we can wear a cropped 80s t-shirt with a 50s prom skirt and 70s style mahoosive brimmed felt hat! So that ridiculous old saying, red & green should never be seen thats a load of *baubles during the Christmas season isnt it, so Pah!.
Or rules of being cool; those unspoken cool rules, of who youre supposed to be seen with and who you're not. The rules that say you have to conform to what everyone is doing, thinking, saying, listening to or wearing around you. Pah!.
P.S Would love to hear from your thoughts on anything I write, there is a comments section below, so fire away!
