The 21 Biggest Fashion Faux Pas
By: Julie Michelle Smith
Expressing your individuality? We're all for it. But some things just shouldn't be worn in public.
Next time you go out shopping for clothes, make sure to keep this list in mind.
1. Oversized Handbags
We're probably not going to make ourselves popular with this, but face it: oversized handbags look absurd on anyone. What are you going to tuck into that bag anyway, your 2 feet long cellphone? Don't think it's cool because celebrities (we're looking at you, Cameron) like to walk around with those things: they look ridiculous as well, but no one dares to say it.
2. Oversized Sunglasses
What do Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie have in common? Exactly: they all look silly when they wear their huge sunglasses. No, it's not pretty, stylish or anything positive. Just stay away from those things.
3. Chihuahuas (or other domestic animals)
Animals don't make nifty fashion accessoires: not when they're alive, nor when they're dead.
There's no excuse for wearing Crocs, not even if you work as a nurse or as a poolboy. Socks in Crocs, George? We're speechless.
5. The Marilyn Monroe look
It was cool when Cristina did it. Then Katherine Heigl did it, and it was still sort of cool. But please, for the love of God, don't do this if you're not a celebrity. Unless it's for a Halloween party.
