Fashion Tips : Obsolete Styles
There are some fashion styles that live on for ages and ages to come. And then there are some fashion styles that are given the ‘thumbs down’ the moment they hit the market.
If you want to project yourself off as a fashionable and stylish individual, you need to make sure you get your taste in clothes right. In addition to this, you need to steer clear off some major fashion faux pases, some of which are described below.
Spandex: The first warning to you is ‘Wear a spandex only if you have the body to sport it’! For this seemingly stretchable piece of fabric will do no good for individuals who are either too chubby (look chubbier) or too lean (look wrinkled) to look good in it. So it is better to constrict the spandex for the sole purpose of exercising.
Neon and Fluorescent Colors: It is simply so hard to understand as to what people really see in neon and fluorescent colored garments. These colors are blinding to the extent that they glare out even if you tone them down with another piece of dull fabric.
While actors and celebrities prefer these colors for the silver screen, walking on the road in neon and fluorescent colored clothes is definitely going to make at least a few individuals cover their eyes and move away from you as soon as possible in order to avoid getting blinded.
Balloon Skirt: When the ‘Balloon style’ was introduced in the market, it looked like it would be a hit with lean individuals who wanted to look curvier and fuller.
Alas! In sharp accordance to its name, the balloon trend (multiple layered garments) did nothing but balloon up a person’s physical assets, making them look stuffed and ugly instead of the other way around!
Leather: We admit leather was a big rage back in the days of the ‘Terminator’ Series where Arnold Schwarzenegger looked hot sporting leather pants and jackets.
Imagine wearing leather outfits in a country like India where day time temperatures reach 40c.You will most obviously be cooked inside the outfit itself.
It is best considered to leave this fashion style to those who need to wear it on a daily basis, like cowboys. And make sure you don’t keep an extra pair of these garments with you unless you plan on visiting areas like Texas soon.
Low Waist Jeans: The first thing that would normally come to the mind of any sane individual when he/she sees a pesron sporting ultra low waist jeans is ‘How is he/she holding it up?’.
Ultra low waist jeans have become quite popular with the college going group and we get to see a lot of these in campuses and hangouts frequented by college students.
The worse thing about seeing a person sporting these jeans is that you wonder when they are going to fall off and almost get the urge to pull them down, given the chance. So if you feel this way about someone else wearing low waist jeans, why opt for the same yourself?
Anti Fits: You can justify this style of clothing if you are a rap or hip hop dancer or fancy the same. However, choosing to wear these seemingly large clothes that almost make you feel lost in them is a decision best avoided.
In addition to making you look like a complete idiot, over sized antifits will be a definite crowd puller for all the wrong reasons (everyone gets a sneak peek at what color boxers you are wearing that day).
Platform Heels: This one goes for women! No more a girl, you definitely need to grow out of your fancy for platform heels. Agreed that they were quite adorable when you were a kid.
But face it lady! These heels would do nothing to showcase your feminine side and you will end up looking like an ugly duckling waddling with a couple of bricks tied to its feet, in a crowd full of elegant swans.
In addition to all these items that need to be shown the door as soon as possible, the other essential items that you need to remove from the wardrobe, should you have them, are shoulder pads (make a person look bulgy), ponchos (no cut, no shape and most important, no more admirers), and of course any clothes that have huge floral prints on them (no way Grandma!).
