8 Fashion Faux Pas ...

By Alison

There are some things that prove the existence of a vast gap between fashion and style. If you commit any of the fashion faux pas below, hang your head in shame.

1 Bra Straps Showing with Strappy Vests

Bra Straps Showing with Strappy VestsI remember the days when it was shameful if your bra strap accidentally revealed itself (and no, I’m not that old). Now summer is polluted by the visual horror of straps proudly on display with spaghetti vests. For the love of all that’s holy, if you need a bra then buy a vest that covers it, and leave the thin straps to those who don’t need a boulder holder.

2 Harem Pants

3 Young Guys Wearing Their Jeans Halfway down Their behind

Young Guys Wearing Their Jeans Halfway down Their behindThe close male relative of harem pants, and forces me to fight the urge to "debag" them. For God’s sake, you don’t look cool and nobody wants to see your underwear, no matter how hot you are. Put it away.

4 Polo Shirts

Polo ShirtsI cannot express the complete and utter distaste and contempt that strikes me whenever I see a man wearing a polo shirt. A garment that cannot make up its mind if it’s a shirt or a t-shirt. Ban them. Now.

6 Shoe Boot

7 Excessively Long Nails

Who are you, Freddy Krueger’s sister? Long nails does not equal pretty nails. Not practical, not attractive, and not safe for anyone who comes within your reach. Just wait until you break one, and then you’ll have to start all over again …

8 Dyed Blonde Hair with Dark Roots

Dyed Blonde Hair with Dark RootsDo you ever see the reverse? Darling, nature gave you dark hair for a reason. Three inches of dark roots – and they will appear, unless you can afford constant touch-ups or color it yourself– is horrifyingly awful. Stick with dark hair, or buy a wig.

What fashion disasters make you shudder when you see them in the street? Or are you guilty of committing any fashion horrors yourself?
