“The thing is with her, and some of my other clients I’ve worked with for a long time, is that you can really see the choices that we’ve made are streamlined and very clean,” the stylist explained at the New York announcement of her Guest Stylist partnership with Coldwater Creek. “You can just really see that she’s wearing the dress and that she feels confident in it. They’re all really done proportionally.”

And this goes for her range of looks, from solid colors to peplum to prints (from left: floral-printed J. Mendel,  two-toned emerald Vionnet sheath, and polka-dotted Jenny Packham). Your lesson: “[It’s about] going for a very timeless and classic sensibility,” the celebrity stylist advised. “It’s very straightforward and it’s very clean, so I think that’s why with Amy these looks really worked.” Try it tomorrow!

But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
