10 style rules from KARL LAGERFELD

  1. Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.
  2. If you want to reinvent a newly impeccable you in the most modest of outfits, don’t skip on makeup, and be sure to have flawless skin and hair. That will have more impact than expensive clothes.
  3. You cannot fake chic, but you can be chic and fake fur.
  4. Reinvent new combinations of what you already own. Improvise. Become more creative. Not because you have to, but because you want to. 
  5. Think pink but don’t wear it.
  6. Buy what you know works for your body and only buy something if it fits well.
  7. Don’t use expensive clothes as a screen for your personal doubts. Be proud of yourself and not only because you wear expensive designer clothes.
  8. Dress for yourself and the man you love. Women dressing to impress other women — forget about that. It’s a very bad way of thinking.
  9. Don’t wear what you question, wear what you think is right for you.
  10. Black, like white, is the best color! They both look great with added color touches like red.
  11. Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.
