Fashion isn’t a hard and fast rule by which we all live. Being trendy and classy is one thing but every person has an individual style. Your friend might totally pull off a flowing skirt but they may look terrible on you and vice versa. However, there are some clothing and accessory items that do not look good on anyone.
Here are our top four picks that you need to get out of your wardrobe and shoot into the dustbin...
Shrugs are most commonly worn in a misguided attempt to cover up flabby arms or to dress up a casual outfit. Their unstructured shape and draped lapels actually have the opposite effect, and draw attention to the problem area. Achieve the illusion of a shapely upper body by instead opting for a tailored blazer or jacket.
2. Choker Necklaces
To our dismay, this trend from the 90s has reemerged and is once again increasing in popularity. Chokers emphasize the width of your neck and bring attention to unflattering areas of your face like your lower chin. Select long line necklaces like pendants to give the appearance of a swan like neck and draw the eye down.
Unless you’re attending a costume party as a Mexican street singer there is no valid reason to wear a poncho. They make you appear bulky and are totally impractical for every day wear. If you need the extra coverage, layer a maxi coat or vest over your outfit to elongate your figure.
4. Ankle Straps
We love a good strappy heel but some of them can be really punishing on your figure. Pairs with elaborate ankle straps have the visual effect of cutting your legs off at the calf and making them appear shorter than they actually are. For enviable legs, select nude pairs that do not contrast your skin tone.
