Opinion: Things I Would Never Wear

Let me start off by saying that this post is not meant to insult anyone. This is simply a personal opinion- my personal opinion. I am sure there are many things that I wear, that others would never be caught dead in. I also acknowledge that some of the items listed here, are ones that you may like or pull off very well!  However, for me, occasionally  re-evaluating and revisiting my personal style and discovering what I like/love also requires me consider things that I don't like. It's all part of the process. It's figuing out what I would not purchase (even with a hefty discount) because I know I would never end up wearing it anyway. It's about learning how I have grown as person because I think changing ones style over the years or during life altering moments, is a strong personality indicator.

Here are my list of fashion faux-pas, no-no's etc.

Crocs. I don't care how comfortable these are or if they are the equivalent to 'walking on clouds'. These shoes are so unflattering (on everyone) that they have no stylistic redeeming qualities.
Red lace. I have always considered red lace to be gaudy and harsh. Yes there are celebrities who have worn wonderful  red lace pieces,  like here ad here, but for the most part, red lace is something, in my opinion, that should be reseved for the bouduare.

Rubber Flip Flops. Think Old Navy flip flops. Eek! I consider these to be the shoe equivalent of mom jeans. Often times, I see women in cute dresses/outfits then only to look down at their feet to see these overly casual,  looking footwear. I really think this should be reserved for the pool-side, if that. With so many cute, affordable and comfortable options out there, why?
Overalls. I wore overalls in the 90s. I say this as I hang my head in shame. I never felt, hot or confident in them but it was a 'trend' and besides Donna, Valerie and Kelly pulled it off so well on 90210. In the end, overalls don't do justice for any woman's figure. Besides unless your a farmer, what's the need?
Crop Tops. There is nothing remotely classy aboout crop tops. I don't care if Tom Ford himself designed and sewed the top. I am not exactly sure where crop tops are considered appropriate? 
Booty Shorts.  Unless I'm an extra in a 90s rap video, I would never be caught dead in these. And since the 90s have passed (and I would never be an extra in a video), it never did, nor will it ever happen!

Fanny Packs. Fanny Packs. Enought said. But then again, not enough said!! Even Chanel, in my opinion can't get away with this. There is just something that just screams "I don't care about style" when I see fanny-packs. My only exception would be mountain climbing or hiking.
String bikinis.  I'm not a Brazilian model nor a porn star (I'm not comparing the two, just that in my last trip to Brazil I noticed it was quite the norm there),  therefore, you won't see me this.

NOW, I really want to know what your list would be!! Either let me know here or create a post of your own. Trust me, we are all so use to talking about what we like, so it would be nice to hear your faux-pas!.

  3. Totally agree about the Crocs, but crop tops I actually think can look quite cute - not the short ones, just the slightly dipped hem ones. Love them.
