Doe Deere Takes an Uncoventional Approach to Fashion

Every September, it’s quite common for fashion and beauty magazine to release an issue letting readers know about the trends that will likely be popular in the spring. However, there are some people who don’t subscribe to these rules, and Doe Deere is one of them. Deere is the owner of Lime Crime, a cosmetics company for all-natural eye shadow and lipstick. Doe is also a hairstylist, and is often outspoken about her outgoing approach to beauty and fashion.

One of the rules that Doe Deere says is meant to be broken is wearing several makeup colors at one time. Most makeup artists advise women not to wear a smoky eye with a bold lip, but Deere says that you don’t necessarily have to follow this rule. There are several colors that will match your skin tone, and Deere says that putting these colors together will help you to achieve your customized look.

Deere also says that people should focus on wearing what makes them feel good, no matter where they are heading. She doesn’t really believe in occasion-specific clothing, and says that people should choose pieces that will make them feel elegant, fun and beautiful. Deere is also not a fan of being simply wearing clothing that is age-appropriate. She has even had to tell her mother not to choose her outfits based on her age, and gushes about how beautiful she thinks her mother is. It’s clear that Doe wants to inspire everyone with her fashion philosophies, including her own families.

Doe also says that it’s not necessary to wear beige or black if you’ve dyed your hair an unnatural color. Deere often wears her tresses in blue, pink or green, and doesn’t wear all-black outfits to “balance out” her look. She often wears clothes that are filled with colors and patterns, because it makes her feel especially whimsical and beautiful. Deere also shares that color should be a way for people to show off their personality, which is why many of the shades in the Lime Crime line are especially bold and eye-catching.

Deere also encourages people to wear lots of patterns and colors at one time as well. Most fashion experts say that you should stick to a set color scheme and not wear clothing that’s too “busy.” However, Doe Deere says that the key to great fashion is to do what makes you happy. She offers tips for wearing outgoing hairstyles and makeup products on her Lime Crime website to keep you looking your personal best.

Discover Your Inner Unicorn with Doe Deere

Doe Deere, the face behind the ultra-successful Lime Crime cosmetic brand, wants us all to find our inner unicorn. Using the terms she reserves for people that are just a little bit different, brave, creative and daring, Deere believes a bit of the unicorn spirit lives in all of us. In a recent interview with Bustle, Doe Deere sat down to discuss the fashion rules that are meant to be broken.

Be Bold

General make-up rules dictate that you should pick either a bold eye or a bold lip. Deere claims this isn’t so and often feels most comfortable in a makeup look that is universally bold. Choose the colors and pairings that speak to you, that make you feel beautiful. If that means a smoky eye paired with a deep, red lip, more power to you.

Be Careful Mixing Colors

Another fashion “rule” worth breaking concerns mixing colors. Deere encourages everyone to take a risk and play with color. Do not be afraid to experiment with blending brights and pastels, neutrals and neons or any other combination that makes you jump for joy.

Avoid Too Many Patterns

Next to mixing colors, Doe Deere loves to play with patterns. While she agrees that creating a beautiful look featuring multiple patterns can be intimidating, it can also be breathtaking.

Avoid Socks with Heels

Socks allow you to accessorize every outfit with personality, according to Deere. A self-proclaimed owner of more than 100 pairs of socks, Deere believes they are an easy way to add color and fun to any outfits. Mix and match your heels and your favorite socks.

Bold Hair, Neutral Outfit

While neutral clothing provides a blank slate for brightly hued hair, you do not have to avoid colorful outfits. Deere encourages mermaid haired beauties to pay attention to color saturation. Pair pastel locks with light, soft colors.

Dress Your Age

Deere believes there is no such thing as dressing your age, or dressing for a certain occasion. Instead, she believes in dictating your own wardrobe. Put together outfits that make you feel happy, beautiful and daring. Do not be afraid to wear that tulle skirt at any age, or a glittery jacket while shopping for groceries.
