It's Friend Friday courtesy of darling Katy at Modly Chic. This week's topic is Fashion Do's and Don'ts.
1 - Flip Flops. Especially the cheap, foam kind. Or worse yet, toe socks with flip flops!
4 - Here-nor-there pant lengths. If you're wearing long, wider-leg pants, they should be almost to the floor (wearing shoes), not hovering around your ankle. Wearing too-short long pants does not make them capris - it just makes them tacky.
2. What previous fashion don’t do you now wear with pride?
Every trend is a fashion 'don't' at some point, right? I remember being 11, wearing tapered-leg jeans and knowing that I would never be caught dead in bell-bottoms. Soon enough, the bigger the bell, the better. Then I couldn't imagine wearing a tapered leg again. Now, here I am in skinny jeans. I think fashion has reached a point where there are very few universal fashion 'don'ts' and it's more about the individual.
3. Do you think there is a universal fashion do?
Boots. Boots. Boots. Flat boots, tall boots, cuffed boots, over-the-knee boots, mid-calf boots, slouchy boots, booties...whatever works best on your body type (mid-calf boots for me), fits your style aesthetic, are comfortable, and in your favorite neutral color. Everyone needs at least one great pair of boots.
4. What items lately, either recently in style or coming in now, do you think should never make it off the retail shelves?
Holy Shirts! (I almost cussed). Perhaps I will eat my words here, but I don't get the shirts that have a bunch of random holes cut out. Looks like my dog got a hold of it. Where would one wear such a thing anyway? Standing on the corner of a busy intersection with a cardboard sign perhaps....
5. In your opinion, is there any blogger, fashion icon, celebrity who some how manages to pull off some fashion don’ts and still look good?
Pretty sure Maegan of ...love Maegan can do no wrong. She can even rock the holy shirt.
