We’ve all seen them: the women that we see while we are out and about that leave us thinking “What was she thinking?!” ThoseÂ women are usually a walking endorsement of what-not-to-wear…and you know it when you see it. Clearly, there are some major fashion faux pas that some women make (even though they might not know that they’re making them!) that we try to avoid at all costs. Some are pretty obvious, like wearing clothing that is two sizes too small, while others might not be as in-your-face. So let’s talk about what NOT to wear so that you don’t become one of those women.
Do Not Wear: Your PJs to Run Errands
Occasionally, I’ll see women in line at the grocery store in what appear to be their pajamas. This is not flattering at all, and I always wonder why she couldn’t take a few minutes to throw some jeans on. PJs are meant for bedtime, not for daywear!
Do Not Wear: Pants That Show Your “Butt Cleavage”
How many times have you been somewhere and saw a woman bend over and her “butt cleavage” peeks out for the world to see? If you have a pair of jeans that causes this to happen when you are around others, chances are the jeans don’t fit right.
I’ll be honest, this happens to me with several pairs of jeans. I am not getting rid of them because of it. Instead, I will wear a tank top that is long enough to hide it, or even just a long shirt or sweater.
Do Not Wear: Mom Jeans
Jeans that come up to your belly button? Those are mom jeans. Think early 90′s style jeans. Those are mom jeans, and they are not flattering! Jeans can be comfortable without having to make you look like you don’t have any style…check out the post I wrote at SmartMomPicks.com about Levi’s dENiZEN jeans – they are the most comfortable jeans that I own!
Do Not Wear: Clothes That Don’t Fit
Look, if your shirt is too small and shows off your muffin top (AKA love handles) or the jeans look like the seams are ready to rip apart, don’t wear them! One of the biggest fashion no-no’s is wearing clothing that doesn’t fit properly. It doesn’t matter if they’re too big or too small, they never, ever flatter you. Choose to highlight your assets instead.
Do Not Wear: Pants That You Can See Your Panty Lines Through
There is nothing less flattering than someone who has on a fantastic pair of pants with their panty lines showing through…especially granny panties! Purchase undies that are seamless to avoid the problem, or purchase g-string or t-back underwear. I know, I know…some women are not fans of those types of underwear, but they do solve this problem!
What do you consider a fashion no-no?
