Fashion Faux Pas

We all have our favourite pet peeves – socks with sandals, flip flops with a business suit, pants that are 3/4 of an inch too short / too long, a guy who wears a belt and braces (suspenders).

What are yours? What fashion don’ts drive you crazy?

  1. socks with sandals!!!

    also, people who don’t dress for their body type. i believe almost anyone can wear almost anything, you just have to buy it in the right size/color/pattern for your body!

    CROCS and CROCS with SOCKS…. and denim skirts with too big a slit in the back.

    Socks and sandals
    Black shoes with white socks
    Ties that are too short

  4. It’s one thing to drop off at the bus in t-shirts and sweats covered in stains. It is entirely different to show up at a school event in the afternoon dressed like that… not saying it’s designer or nothing but someone take me down if I leave the neighborhood dressed that way.

    Where does one start? White socks with a dark suit, suspenders with clips, clip on ties worm by anyone older than seven. Short sleeve dress shirts [sic], any form of tailored menswear done in synthetic fabrics, poorly heeled shoes, unpressed clothing. As a general matter, a man should be very careful about how he dresses. The goal is to look like he never gave his clothing any thought at all. And that takes a inordinate amount of advance planning.

    Tights worn as pants. That’s a thing in Seattle now. No they are not opaque. Oh, and I can’t get on board with this patterned tights with business suits trend – like fishnets, rose lace patterns, etc.

    I wear Crocs (with socks) twice a year, on Yom Kippur and on Tisha B’Av. The rest of the year I wear either shoes, sandals (with no socks), or sneakers. I found a particularly ugly set of them on sale and bought them a year or two ago. Here’s a photo – http://twitpic.com/6lhtoz

    Skirts with sneakers! Big no-no!

      So girls who only wear skirts can’t exercise or play sports? I agree though, which is why I bought my teenage daughter weekday shoes that aren’t sneakers. she can save the sneakers for gym. my younger daughters’ weekday shoes just are sneakers and I try not to mind.

    Pink or purple fleece pajama pants worn in public. News flash, people DO know they are pajamas.

  10. Shani says:

    crocs, pajama jeans, too much gold chains and buttons, poorly heeled shoes, shoes-handbag-accessories all of the same color (they have to be coordinated instead)

    Women wearing white bras under white tops. Wear beige/skin tone bras ladies!
