Everyone has done it at some point in their life. Yes, I am talking about the good old fashion faux pas. What are some of the fashion mistakes I’ve made? Well, if you wanna go back to the 90s and early 00s there are a ton! Too much blue eyeshadow, glitter overload, butterfly clips, wearing too many trends at once. I mean the list goes on and on. Anyway, enough about my fashion mistakes – I’ve got 5 fashion faux pas you need to avoid if you’re looking to live your most stylish life!
Clothes That Are Too Tight
I am all about wearing body-hugging clothes if that is your thing. But there is a big difference between clothes that hug your curves and clothes that are cutting off your circulation. Not only is it unflattering but it’s uncomfortable as well! If you’re going for a sexy body-hugging style, look for clothes that are made of materials that move with your body. Spandex, Lycra, and cotton blends are all great materials for those sexy body-hugging pieces. I’m all for showing off what you’ve got but make sure to do it in the most flattering way possible!
Undergarments That Show
Ok, so this fashion faux pas is a little tricky because sometimes we actually want to show off our undergarments. For example, it’s totally acceptable to let your lacey bralette peek out from under a cute sweater. Or even wearing a lacey body suit as your top with a blazer for a sexy date night look.
What we’re talking about here is the unintentional showing of the undergarments. Bra straps peeking out under a formal dress, your thong rising above your jeans (a la 90s Brittany), or the push up bra that you thought wouldn’t show with that low cut top. There are so many solutions to your undergarment problems these days that all of these problems are an easy fix. There’s everything from low back bras, to seamless panties, and nipple covers, so there’s really no reason for undergarments that show.
Head to toe designer logos, matching your shoes with your bag and your makeup with your outfit. I think you get it. Gone are the days when you need to have everything perfectly matched. In fact, it’s a lot more chic these days to mix and match your pieces, not to mention it’s much easier.
Wearing All of the Trends
I can admit to being guilty of this on more than one occasion. I love experimenting with trends and I’ve definitely worn more than one trend at a time. But sometimes it can be taken too far. My tip? Start off with something classic or basic and add on the trends from there. I’d say limit your self to one or two trends and keep the rest of the outfit simple.
Shoes That You Can’t Walk In
At only 5’0 tall I am known to love a sexy high heel. Seriously, I’ve worn 6 inch heels, stilettoes, platforms, you name it. But I always make sure that I can walk properly in whatever shoes I choose to wear. That might mean that you spend some time practicing how to walk in heels at home or pick up a shoe with a little less height but never ever ever go out in something that is going to be a struggle to walk around in!
Your shoes might look amazing in that picture that you took for Instagram but if it doesn’t look so good if your wobble around like baby Bambi all night. Not to mention the dangers of a sprained ankle! If you’re not confident that you can walk around in that shoe for more than an hour don’t even try.
Not Wearing a Mask
This is the only fashion faux pas that you have absolutely no excuse for not following.
If you choose to ignore the other fashion faux pas I can more than likely give you a pass but I am not budging on this one! The pandemic is real and having common curtesy for the safety of others is important now more than ever. Honestly, you have zero excuses for not wearing a mask as they are readily available, affordable, and come in some really fun styles. I’ve seen all different colors, animal prints, sequins, and lacey styles. Have fun with it and make it fashion!
