Fashion Don'ts that Won't Be Fashion Do's Anytime Soon

Updated on January 2, 2015

Fashion Sense for the Sensible

Just Say No To These 10 Fashion Don'ts

Trends come and go. One season it is about solids-next about patterns. One year you will be in skinny jeans, the next you will need to buy jeans with a little flare. As these trends come and go-there are some things that we should not do, no matter the season, no matter the popular trend or the occasion. There are some things that we just shouldn't do, show or even admit that we have ever thought about being seen in public wearing and or doing.

When we go out and wish to be noticed, there are some things we don't want to be noticed for. Notice should come with happy admiration, appealing characteristics and personality.

Being noticed for such things as obsessive body hair, stinky body odor, or an unknown fungus-brings no amount of admiration, appeal nor does it justify a great personality.

Sometimes, it is the best bet, to just say NO.

It isn't your fault-but it is your choice

Take care of your acne/pimples before showing your stuff

Fashion Don’t #1

If you have acne on your chest or on your back you are not alone, it happens too many especially when the weather changes or stress in your life rises. Although others understand and have probably had a few of those breakouts themselves, it is not something that is fashionable nor do people wish to see pimples on your cleavage. Do not wear tops that show your back breakout or chest breakout. Even with makeup on the blemishes is a sight that is more noticeable that a piece of food stuck in your teeth.

Suck it in-Cover it up...NO, NO, NO!

Muffin Rolls over the Jeans and Hose over Hair!

Fashion Don’t #2

We all have a pair of jeans that we can’t throw away. Maybe it was 5 years or even 10 years ago when we first put them on and they fit like a glove, now… the glove has last years Thanksgiving Dinner and This Years Birthday Bash, coming over the top. Don’t squeeze everything your mamma gave you-plus everything you gave to yourself into those jeans. Rolls over the top, is in no way, no shape, no form a fashion do.

I hate to be the barer of bad news but this isn't cool, nor is it sexy- so please, when you suck it in and it pours out, please make the choice to say NO to the dreaded terror of having muffin rolls.

Fashion Don’t #3

If you don’t like to shave your legs, I understand. It is far from being a favorite past time for most women. The cuts, the bumps, and the cost of keeping those legs silky smooth is unbelievable. With that being said, if you haven’t shaved your legs in 6 months, wear pants.

Do not think about wearing sheer pantyhose over months of hair growth. The word sheer that comes before the Pantyhose should come with the realization that, they don’t do a thing about hiding or masking that growth. This is not cute-not sexy-not appealing and may be somewhat frightening to a small child.

Please restrain yourself from trying to cover up your all natural legs- this is a serious fashion offense, and the only defense you have is a fresh/sharp razor and a can of shaving cream to tame that beast. ommitting this offense.

Two you just shouldn't do.

Clothing Attire Violations...

Fashion Don’t #4

Unless you are Richard Simons and are Sweating to the Oldies- Neon Colored/Shiny Spandex is not fashionably acceptable any more, even if you pair it with a tee shirt which you have cleverly altered yourself by cutting the bottom half off to show your mid-drift.

NO-NO-NO, please NO. Don’t do this, especially if you have children that will be seen with you in public. This type of offense gives every other child in existence, the means to mock your child until graduation.

For the sake of the children repeat after me, "Just say NO to Neon’s that Glow".

Fashion Don’t #5

If you bought it and it was white, and you are still wearing it even though the color has changed to gray, or even worse, has a yellow tint, you first need to stop what you are doing and smack yourself, HARD! This is a major Fashion Don't!

After you smack yourself a few times-cut up the clothing (don’t donate it-cut it up) and go wash your car using the new rags you just created. After the car is clean- GO BUY A NEW SHIRT!

White should remain white-when it is no longer perceived as being white, it is time for you to part ways and find something new.

This is one of those times that it is just better to start over rather than attempt to save that memory. Dingy yellowed tees have no rightful place in your wardrobe.

Does this really need to be explained?

People See Your Feet, Do You?

Fashion Don’t #6

If you feel the need to wear sandals, or flip flops, please be conscience of the way that your feet appear to the rest of the world. If you have ‘fuzzy’ toes, trim them. If you have the left over nail polish from when you painted your toe nails 6 months ago, clean it off. If you have yellow crusty toe nails, get something for that.

Regardless of the issues your feet have encountered or formed during the winter months, it is highly recommended that you go get a pedicure, a scrub, a buff or if your feet require drastic measures, go ahead and take an electric sander to get those funky toes under control before presenting them to the world.

When it comes to toe jam and unsightly toenail nastiness- take extreme measures. Consider:

  • seeing a doctor for the yellow toe nails,
  • shaving or waxing your feet
  • or buying a Pedi-egg and going a little crazy attacking those calluses,

But please get those toes in suitable shape for sandal season.

You wouldn't go on a date without brushing your teeth, right? (please agree) Toe nail nastiness is just as unacceptable as not brushing your teeth before a big date.

It is funny on a Tee Shirt or Hat, Not on You

Hairy Faces, Hmmmm?

Fashion Don’t #7

If you are a female and have a thicker mustache than the men that you meet, you may want to consider spending the $10 and having that thing waxed away. Sure it will hurt as the hair is ripped from your upper lip, and yes it will be red for a few hours after the waxing takes place, it may even bleed a little bit-but this is one of those situations that you must weigh the good and the bad.

Good-you will no longer be addresses as ‘Hey Mister’, you will not irritate your mans skin with your stubble, you will not leave food behind caught in your mustache, the you without a mustache just climbed 3 points on the sexy scale.

Bad-A little redness-perhaps a little blood-and momentary pain. The decision is yours. But a mustache is not on a man's check list of qualities that he is looking for in a woman.

Fashion Don’t #8

On the same frequency as the mustache waxing, we must address the women the sport around beards and the dreaded unibrow. Must I say more? Although thicker eye brows are acceptable-one complete eyebrow across your face is not as sexy than if your were to have two separate ones.

The beard, well just as we don’t want to irritate our man's face with the stubble from a mustache, it is probably not his idea of foreplay for your beard to poke his face either. Wax-do not shave the beard. Have someone wax or pluck your eye brows. Don’t attempt to shape your eye brows yourself-if you slip up, you may end up longing for that unibrow back.

Happy Happy, Joy, Joy...

Even if you are a goddess- these will cost you ranking points

Fashion Don’t #9

If you are over the age of 40, do not go wear your daughter’s velour track pants that say HOTTIE across the butt. Even is you are a MILF, it is not something that you need written across your tushy. I am sorry, I know this is not a violation that will be easy to let go of, but you really need to give those pants back to your 15 year old-or if nothing else, only wear them within the walls of your home.

Fashion Don’t #10

If you are sporting a forest under your panties and have a path that leads you there from your belly button (a happy trail), it is not sexy to put on a bathing suit without cutting back the trees. Nothing is more disturbing that a group of people enjoying a picnic on the beach when your pubic hair is blowing in the breeze. Don’t do this-it just isn’t right although it may get you noticed and you may end of being a topic of conversation amongst the men, it is not the type of notice that you wish to receive. Make the world a happier place and tame your happy trail and forest before making an appearance at the beach or pool.

Thanks for considering some of these very correctable Fashion Violations that are obvious DON’TS that are not foreseen do’s any time soon.

      Before Bell Bottoms- was it the hot pants, perhaps hoop skirts and leather jackets (wait no-hoop skirts and leather jackets was in the 50's & 60's for James Dean, right?) There was the 1960's bowl haircuts made popular by the Beatles :) It seams like every era comes back in pieces here and there, a few years back before the skinny jeans, bell bottoms or jeans with flare were in. I still remember the 80's headbands and the Flash Dance Attire, with scrunch socks and big bright neon hoop earrings that were hidden behind big bad perms...LOL, ahhh---the 80's, I still have some of that jewelry, I think my son made Christmas Ornaments out of a few odd ball pieces this past year. The 90's left us with the grunge apparel and the ever so popular rat tail and mullet hair. I wonder what we will end up thinking, What was I thinking about this era?

      Thanks for reading this one quicksand

      Thanks Richie,

      I did this one in fun-thought there would be some people that would get a bit of a laugh, and maybe a few others that would take off the spandex... :) Thanks for your comment

      thanks for commenting on this one. i decided to write it after, i noticed all these violations, the past few weeks-when i was grocery shopping, lol. everyone always says-it's trendy-so i figured some violations need to be pin-pointed and need to be said NO, NO, NO to. LOL. It was fun writing :)


      I am a mom too, not 40 yet, but don't believe that we really need HOTTIE written across our butts, for people to think we are actually hot mommas. They are a clothing choice that should really be left for High School Cheerleaders :) Thanks for commenting, glad you enjoyed the read!

      H.C, I loved reading this hub. It really is a fun one:-) You made such valid points, There is not one out of the ten that I do not agree with. Being a 40 year old mom which I'd like to think is a milk LOL, I would not where track pants with hottie across the back there are plenty of ways to look cute and hot at that age an a more appropriate way. Thank you, a definite rate up!
