I have never claimed to be the most fashionable woman in the world.  However, there are some fashion don’ts that you will never, ever see me doing.  Sadly, I have seen all of these at one point or another.  While some of these are more understandable if you’re a teenager, I’ve seen women that are definitely old enough to know better wearing some of these fashion don’ts as well.

Fashion Dont’s

  1. Tights are not pants.  I don’t care what color they are, tights are not pants and should not be worn like pants.  If your shirt isn’t long enough to be a dress, put on pants instead of tights.
  2. Leave something to the imagination.  If your outfit consists of two bandaids held together with paperclips, wear it on the beach not to the store.
  3. Don’t overload the designer emblems. I love my Coach wristlet as much as the next fashion conscious woman. However, if your handbag, shoes, jacket, belt, and shirt all have designer emblems on them, scale it down a bit.
  4. Tutus are not made for adults. While a tutu may look adorable on your four year old, it wasn’t intended to be an outfit worn by an adult.
  5. Skimpy separates. Cropped tops and low rise jeans are not a great match.  Need I say more?
  6. Eyes or lips. Never both. Play up one or the other or you risk looking like Bozo the clown.

What are your fashion dont’s?  Do you agree with mine or do you think that these are good style choices?

  1. Simply Stacie says

    Pants where the crotch is so low it hangs down to your knees.

  2. Totally agree with you (and Gossip Girl’s Blair) on tights not being pants. I cringe when I see women wearing them as pants. I wear them as stockings with short skirts or sweaterdresses in the winter.

  3. I agree, Iris. I love the look with a sweaterdress. Stacie – That’s a big one for me too!

  4. YIKES, yeah you hit on some of my pet peeves. The jeans that are way too tight get me!

  5. all very good points! Of course, some people probably think my jeans and tshirt are a fashion nightmare, too!

    You’ve hit the nail on the head here. You’re so right. I hate seeing women barely dressed. Plus, too much make up is ever a good thing.

  7. I think everyone needs a reality check every once in a while. A full length mirror helps too.

  8. i have seen so many women in their 50’s or older dressing like they are 16. I’m 53 myself and I think this only serves to make them look older than they really are.
