          In essence, fashion is all about self-expression--it's an opportunity to explore our own individual style and personal aesthetic.  So why, then, do we spend so much time worrying about "what goes with what"?  My first look at a fashion rule breaker was probably Carrie Bradshaw.  Not only was "Sex And The City" an entertaining look at modern social issues, it also had a lead character who's style was unique and full of fashion firsts.  I can only imagine how much fun the wardrobe staff had pairing runway couture with urban street style--it's what well versed...

It held her bust in a high and pointy place just inches below her chin.   Fortunately, bras are much more civilized and comfortable to wear these days, but are still...
