2.) You can't wear denim on denim

I was in college when I first learned what a Canadian tuxedo was.  I had worn a denim jacket with jeans to a party and one of my friends said "nice Canadian tuxedo".  I had no clue what that was, but it stuck with me for years.  I never mixed denim together, until now.  There is nothing wrong with a good "Canadian tuxedo" outfit.

4.) You can't mix brown and black

Whoever made up this rule probably didn't have the same love for leopard print that I do.  This was one of those rules I took very seriously in high school.  I always made sure my belt colors matched my shoes and I would never wear brown shoes with black jeans.  I'm all about mixing brown and black now.
