Style Rules to Live By

Make it werk.

Not everyone can dress like they stepped out of the pages of Vogue –or even Cat Fancy. But if you aren’t a mega-rich supermodel, there are still some style rules you can live by from our resident fashion plates Abbi and Ilana. Just follow these tips, and you’ll certainly stay off of any worst-dressed list.

All style icons have a signature look. Carolina Herrera has her crisp white shirt. Bill Cunningham had his iconic blue jacket. Ilana Glazer has her NYC crop top, fringed fanny pack and tie-dye leggings.

OUT WITH THE OLD—the-purge
There’s vintage, and then there’s just totally out of style. Sweat stains have no place in a stylish wardrobe. And neither do royal blue Crocs, no matter how much Abbi thought she would become a chef.

Make room for menswear in that newly emptied-out closet of yours. An oversized blazer never goes out of style — and it’s also an absolute must in the dining room.

GET A SECOND OPINION—bevers-makes-it-work
When in doubt about a fashion choice, ask a friend, even if that friend has been living on your couch, playing video games and eating all of your cheese, despite the fact that you labeled it. He might know a thing or two about the right first-date look. (Hint: The right outfit is never socks and a horsetail butt plug.)

At the end of the day, the person who should love your style the most is you. Who cares what other people think? If you love seafoam lipstick, wear it — especially if you’ll be looking at yourself in the mirror a lot for the next few hours.
