What’s the “one or the other” rule? It’s about picking one area of your body to expose for a subtly alluring look. If you’re wearing a tiny miniskirt, perhaps opt for a long-sleeve top. Or if you’re wearing a deep V-cut top, wear pants to balance out the look. Playing by this rule will help ensure you’re showing an appropriate amount of skin.
