Three fashion myths to break this spring

When it comes to putting together a killer outfit, the laws of fashion are made to be broken – just look at these three myth-busting, ultra-stylish pieces from Tu.

We all love to get – and give – a little bit of fashion guidance here at Tu HQ. But heavy-handed style rules? How boring! When it comes to putting together a killer outfit, the laws of fashion are made to be broken – just look at these three myth-busting, ultra-stylish pieces from Tu.

It’s a common misconception that horizontal stripes won’t flatter your figure but they can actually work wonders for your silhouette. The trick? Finding the right stripes for your shape. Generally, petites suit thinner, daintier stripes, while those with a curvier frame should opt for bolder stripes especially on top (and if you’re pear-shaped, teaming them with a solid colour below will make your hips appear smaller!). Try it out with this on-trend khaki and white striped T-shirt, which looks fab with a full midiskirt (pastel pink would look super-cute and summery), and some nude court shoes.

Blue and gree pattern skirt

You heard it here first: the old wives’ tale that “blue and green should never be seen” is totally out of date! A case in point: this slinky printed pencil skirt – we love its uniform pattern and figure-hugging fit. Pair it with a floral sleeveless top and sleek heels for a chic 9am-office-duty look.

Stripe and floral dress

Says who? This sweet frock makes us forget everything we were ever taught about the dos and don’ts of dressing. The contrasting monochrome stripes and feminine florals will instantly shake up your wardrobe, while the irresistible flouncy shape is ideal for summer garden parties.

Which fashion rule will you be tearing up this spring?
