You should not make a habit of committing fashion faux pas. One or two in your lifetime is to be expected, but making them regularly is just downright silly. When Hollywood celebrities on the red carpet commit fashion failures everyone hears about it on Fashion Police. You don’t want to be the next victim caught in the act of making one of these fashion mistakes. Take a look at the following 10 fashion faux pas you must avoid at all costs! (Image Credit)
- Showing too Much Skin
Showing too much skin looks desperate. You want to leave something to the imagination! If you decide to show off you shoulders, don’t show off your legs as well. In Hollywood fashion and style, less is always more. And more, is well tacky. It’s possible to look sophisticated and sexy simply wearing a top and some trousers if you do it right.
- Wearing Clothes That are Too Tight
Clothes that are too tight are bad for you. They’ll squeeze you so you feel ridiculously uncomfortable, and you might even suffer from a muffin top or bum cleavage. Not a good look. Try clothes on before buying and don’t kid yourself into thinking you’re a smaller size.
- Wearing Something You’re Not Comfortable In
If you wear something you don’t feel comfortable in, people will automatically be able to tell. You should feel totally comfortable in everything you wear, and you’ll look great by default.
- Copying Somebody Else’s Exact Outfit
Although you may admire someone else’s style, you should never copy their exact outfit. This isn’t original or unique, and you don’t want to be a sheep! Chances are, someone will tell that you’ve copied too. Do you really want that reputation?
5. Wearing Too Many Accessories
If you wear too many accessories at once, you’ll look trashy. As a rule, less is more when it comes to accessories. Practice wearing bracelets, necklaces, and rings so that they enhance your outfit rather than overshadow it.
- Showing Bra Straps
Wearing clothes that show your bra strap is a fashion crime, so stop immediately! Don’t think you get away with this if you wear clear straps either…you don’t. Either wear a strapless bra, or wear something that doesn’t show off your straps to avoid looking cheap. (Image Credit)
- Wearing Pajamas in Public
Why has this exploded into a huge trend lately? Wearing your pyjamas in public is lazy, gross, and wrong. I don’t care if you’re just out getting some milk…you must not wear pyjamas under any circumstances! You especially can’t wear a Juicy Couture inspired tracksuit with Ugg boots.
- Wearing Heavy Makeup in the Day
Wearing heavy makeup at night is acceptable. Going out at night you want your makeup to stand out, especially in different lighting. In the day, your tide marks and bright blusher become way too apparent. Keep it natural during the day time!
- Wearing Clothes That are Too Loose
Wearing clothes that are too loose will do nothing for your figure.
10. Visible Panty Lines
Visible panty lines. One of the worst crimes against fashion there is. Wear pants to suit your outfit so you can’t see the outline!
Avoid these faux pas like the plague and you should experience more success with your outfits. You never know who you might meet, so make an effort to look nice!
