As much as we like to think we’ve got the fashion game covered, there are always a few exceptions which manage to slip through the net. From the infamous socks and sandals combo to the dreaded bum bag, let’s take a look at some of the most common fashion faux pas for women.
The 90’s brought us many great things; Destiny’s Child, plaid printed skirts and high-waisted jeans are all notable highlights. On the other hand, the 90’s also brought windbreakers, bandannas and the holy grail of fashion no no’s- bum bags -to the world of fashion.
From middle-aged hikers to young adult ravers, bum bags became the marmite accessory which divided the nation. And although the noughties drove them away, those insufferable bum bags have come back with a vengeance as festival fever sweeps across the UK.
They might be hands-free, they might be good enough for Rihanna and they might come in handy when you’re trekking up the Himalayas, but they don’t half look ugly. Get the fashion police on patrol; we appear to have an infestation on our hands!
Socks with Sandals
There are very few people in the world who would disagree with the opinion that socks and sandals are the worst fashion faux pas on the planet.
From Hawaiian shirted tourists sporting the dreadful combo to the usually demure Olsen twins rocking up at the airport complete with matching sandals and socks- is there any way to pull off this look? We think not.
Far be it from us to discourage loungewear when at home, relaxing or in-between getting ready for a night out, but wearing it out for the day is an entirely different matter. Add a shiny, garish material known as velour to the mix and it’s a recipe for disaster.
Nonetheless everyone from Vanessa Hudgens to Paris Hilton has been spotted wearing the tracksuit. From the LA sidewalk to serious shopping trips it seems that for some women, the velour tracksuit is a much loved outfit.
