In a world that is as structured as ours, acceptance in the society is a very important thing. This is especially true for those that have to interact regularly in the society or mingle with the high and mighty. In such social settings, you ignore the rigid rules of fashion at your own risk. To be acceptable in many cultures and societies across the globe, you must adhere to the stipulated rules of fashion.
However, this is not to say that you cannot define fashion in your own way or even invent new styles, you must be ready for a resounding success or blinding rejection. But never mind if your design was thrown into the bin, in some years to come, it will be the latest fad. That is how it is in the world of fashion.
But in a case where you are not ready to write your own rules of fashion, then it will be wiser and safer in some instances for you to obey the current rules of fashion. For example, you will observe that in most church weddings, the bride is always wearing a flowing white bridal gown while the groom is always handsome in his black suit. If you decide to go against this established rule of fashion by wearing a green suit and your lovely bride going for a yellow gown, you will have succeeded in not only making yourself a laughing stock for years to come but also offending the sight of your guests.
This is simply because of the rigid nature of the rules of fashion and the guidelines that have been put in place. For you to be acceptable in a society and also look â€˜agreeableâ€™, you must follow the time-honored rules of fashion. If you are a politician and you decide to be too casual in your dressing, you may as well kiss your post bye.
