16. Another fashion rule to break tomorrow? Wear red and pink together.

Or “color block,” as fashion people say.

18. Speaking of see-through, show off the contents of your bag.

And it probably doesn’t hurt if what’s inside your clear bag is an “it” bag.

19. Show off your midriff.

You won’t end up looking like a Britney Spears music video circa 2003.

20. Less is more is another bogus rule — more is more!

Instead of taking one thing off before you leave the house, put one thing on.

It’s not a regression to your high school years — backpacks are functional and cool.

25. And definitely wear glasses to make a fashion statement.

Whether you need them or not.

26. And finally, show up somewhere entirely overdressed.

Anna Dello Russo would be so proud.
