Let’s be honest with each other. Do you have something embarrassing in your closet? That piece that drives your friends and family crazy, looks terrible on you and went out of style more than a decade ago? It’s OK. We all have one. Case in point, I have a pair of snakeskin print pants that I just can’t let go of. My family loathes them. And probably with good cause.
Anyway, there are things that should never be worn by anyone. Ever. (my pants should probably be one of them!)
5 Things No One Should Ever Wear:
1. Things That Don’t Fit Properly
This includes things that are too small and items that are too large. Pieces of clothing that are too small are not even comfortable to wear and they have a tendency to show off more than we would like. Baggy clothing makes us look unkempt and messy. Additionally, oversized clothing actually makes you appear larger than you are. Bottom line? Wear clothing that fits!
Not your outfit, but a collection of outfits. Matching with your entire family is a no-no. Let everyone express their own personality and be themselves! If you having family photos made and want to have some cohesiveness, coordinate your ensembles, don’t match them exactly.
3. Things That Need Repair
Talk about messing with something all day long. Wearing an item that needs to be repaired will make you crazy! Just get it fixed or if it is beyond repair, get rid of it.
4. Leggings as Pants
While there is nothing wrong with leggings, let’s get one thing straight: Leggings are not pants. If you’re wearing leggings, we shouldn’t be able to see your behind, not when you’re standing up straight and not when you’re bending over.
Leggings are meant to be worn with a dress or long shirt to ensure your fanny and hips are covered. To make the ensemble look nice, wear leggings with a tunic-style shirt or an age-appropriate dress with boots. And to be safe, don’t wear your leggings to work as they are not business appropriate. Save them for drinks and dinner with your hubby or with the girls!
5. Uggs in Summer
Don’t get us wrong, we love Uggs when worn in the appropriate season.There is nothing wrong with the Ugg boot or wanting to keep your feet warm. It’s just a bit strange when you see people wearing these boots in the 90-degree heat with a sundress or shorts. It has to be hot inside those boots! And nobody likes sweaty feet. Put the Uggs in the closet, get a nice pedicure and slip into some cute sandals.
