Individuality in dress dresss is a must! No one wants to be a cookie cutter image of the next few million consumers shopping out there. However, there have been many a fashion faux pas made in the name of individuality. A few style slip-ups stand out to me as they are painfully obvious in various settings. If you see elements of your own style consider this your wakeup call!
Body Con Dresses & Minis
Now, body con dresses and minis in themselves are really not the problem. They can be quite alluring. The problem is that they have the power to make an average sized wearer look like the Michelin Man. Ladies, tight is not always right, nor does it automatically read sexy and fashion forward. Ill-fitting clothing is never flattering don’t be afraid to go up a size. And do remember, spanx are accessible, affordable and your thighs best friend.
Leggings as Pants
Leggings are a lot of things. One thing they aren’t? PANTS! I repeat. Leggings are not pants. I believe for the sake and vitality of superior styling they should all come with a warning label that reads; PROCEED WITH CAUTION, THIS PRODUCT MUST BE WORN WITH A TUNIC OR DRESS THAT COVERS YOUR LOVELY LADY LUMPS IN THEIR ENTIRETY.
While a signature look often indicates you have found what best compliments your figure, it can also point to stunted style growth. It’s vital to the evolution and development of your personal style to experiment with classics and trends. Don’t go for broke snatching up every trend but keep an open mind. Your growing collection of boxy tops and skinnies is nothing less than amazing but be mindful, there is a whole wonderful world of fashion out there in which to indulge.
Men in [Sagging] Tights
Sagging is so 90s. And not in a, “The grunge look is coming back, hey I’ll give it a try.” kind of way. It’s outdated and sloppy. Sagging in itself is an atrocity and then to sagg skinny jeans?! Sirs, I kindly beseech you; forsake leggings, jeggings, tights and sagging! If you need a blast from the past watch re-runs of Martin.
Ed Hardy T-shirts
I have a burning question for all the folks wearing Ed Hardy shirts and shirts of similar styles. Where are you finding them? I thought they had been exiled to a land far, far away! Bedazzled shirts embellished with tattoo style art are best left to pop boy bands of the early 2000s. There are better ways to command attention than shimmering through the room like Edward from Twilight.
In the words of Oprah you know better now you must do better!
