So, how do you avoid making a fashion faux pas? The main thing to remember is to ensure your clothes are always fresh, clean and fit well. Wearing ill-fitted or dirty clothing is a surefire way to look unprofessional. Always buy good quality materials when possible, and match your undergarments with the colour of your outfit. Likewise, ensure proper care is taken to maintain your clothes’ condition — having a hole in your T-shirt is not chic!
Below, we’ve rounded up 10 of the most common fashion faux pas so you can make sure to avoid them. You’re welcome!
10. Dirty and smelly clothes or fabric with holes
Not only does it look unprofessional, it’ll cheapen your whole outfit.
9. Clothes that don’t fit
Unless it’s on purpose (from a designer doing oversized tailoring), clothes that don’t fit are a definite no no.
8. Ill-fitting pants
Camel toe? No thanks!
7. Unironed clothes that should definitely be ironed
Cotton shirts? They need to be ironed, ladies (and men!).
6. Heels you can’t walk in
There’s nothing worse than seeing a woman hobble around in too-small or too-tall heels.
5. Socks with sandals
It might have been cool for a minute, but we wouldn’t recommend trying this fashion faux pas out any time soon.
4. Low rise pants with underwear showing
The low waisted jean is gone for a good reason.
3. Food stains
You don’t want to look like a grub!
2. Ugg boots outside the house
It’s just never ok. These are indoor shoes. Indoor!
1. Underwear showing through
A bra strap from a white shirt or an undies line on a tight skirt are not a good look.
