First of all, I don’t enjoy going to the mall much anymore. It is a tangled web of people. Shoppers who are rude, employees who would rather be elsewhere and a place where everything looks the same from one store to the next. I do, however, love to people watch. I found myself wondering, has there been a shortage of mirrors that I’m not aware of?
Here are a smattering of fashion faux pas I witnessed. The fashion item in question is a fine item, it is how the person is wearing it, is the ultimate problem.
A faux pas trend, extremely wide belts: Unless you’re a wench on a pirate ship, your boobs should not be hanging over your über wide belt. I think its time to find a narrower belt or skip it altogether.
Leggings: They are not to be worn like a regular pant! Very few females can pull off leggings without a top long enough to cover their assets. Unless you’re skiing down a mountain, your top should be long enough to hide your behind.
Skinny jeans: Hint… the word “skinny”…. this style of jean will accentuate every lump and bump you have. Trends are not meant for everybody.
Crocs and Uggs: I really think that people who wear Crocs, also wear Uggs. If you are old enough to be left home alone, you shouldn’t be wearing Crocs…unless you’re gardening or live on a farm. Uggs…well, the name says it all. And, didn’t they go out of style like 4 yrs ago?
Bedroom gear: Pajama pants should never be worn in public. Are you really that lazy? The same goes for bedroom slippers. Wearing socks with your slippers does not make it appropriate.
Men, if the only “casual” shoes you own are tennis/athletic shoes, its time to buy more shoes. Buy a shoe shine kit as well. FYI – One of the first things a woman notices about a man, is his shoes. Up your shoe game if you want any play.
Also, dark socks with shorts is never okay. Ever.
These are just a few of the standout style horrors. Unfortunately, there is an endless supply of fodder on the subject. A mirror or an honest friend are very helpful.
