We have all had a look through the photo albums and often wonder what on earth we were thinking when we decided that floral jumper looked great with the leopard print leggings. Interestingly money does not buy you style and it’s often celebrities that end up putting together some of the worst fashion combinations. Here are a few pointers to help you know what to avoid.
Just because it’s hot on the catwalk does not mean it’s going to look good on you, remember many fashion designers about push boundaries and concept design.
Do not mix denim with denim, it did not look good in the 80’s and it will not look good now, look to combine denim skirts, jeans and jackets with other solid colors and if you have to wear darker denim washes, you do not want to look like you are wearing a denim suit.
Do not wear thongs with low slung jeans, for some reason the fad for airing next week’s laundry along really took off but with women of all shapes and sizes opting for the cheek and thong look it’s was never going to stay. If you are going to wear low slung jeans there are plenty of panties that are designed to keep things under wraps and hide a VPL.
Nevermore never show both your cleavage and legs at the same time. Short skirts and low cut tops do not look classy so pick an outfit that compliments one of these areas.
You might like Chanel, Gucci and Dior an awful lot, but there’s no need to turn into a walking billboard for them. Overdoing label combinations just looks a little silly and is the ultimate fashion faux pas.
Do not dress in the same color from top to toe. Nowadays it’s considered fashionable to cleverly combine shoes belts and bags without them having to be all the same color. Checking out color charts and fashion trends will help you learn how to match colors that initially may not seem like an obvious choice. Remember green and red on ever look good on a Christmas tree. Also do not match your makeup or hair accessories with your outfit.
Do not mix prints and patterns unless you really understand how to do it, although considered edgy getting it wrong can have disastrous consequences. If you are going to wear leopard or zebra print make sure you match them with solid colors, you do not want to look like something that’s going to be seen in the wilds.
Men and women alike, do not wear flip flops or shorts to the office, beachwear means just that. You would not wear a necktie and cufflinks to the beach so reserve the casual clothes for your next vacation. And while you are at the beach do not wear Speedos, David Beckham can get away with it but men with a middle aged spread can not.
Men, do not wear socks with your sandals especially not neon ones! If you do not like your toes book yourself in for a pedicure. Even worse do not tuck your trousers into your socks unless you are about to ride a bike or wade through a deep puddle.
Without you are attending a tribute evening to the late great Michael Jackson do not wear black shoes and white socks. The King of Pop’s sweet moves meant he could carry this look off and unless you’re about to do the moonwalk to work. Keep the white socks next to your trainers.
For some unknown reason some men believe that novelties ties and cufflinks are a great way to show of their sense of humor. However neckties with cartoon characters and tacky heavily jeweled cufflinks can send out the wrong message. Stick to refined tie and cufflink combinations.
