I work in a women's retail store, which means that I get to "style" a lot of women (of all ages) who don't know how to put an outfit together, who don't know what would look good on them, etc. etc., I love helping people like this, because once they have checked out and you seen them walking out the door they start walking with a totally different attitude. They are happier with their purchase and with themselves, and that makes me feel extremely happy!
But before we get to the happy ending we go through a couple of hits and misses, which are very important to know. That way you don't make the same mistakes again and you go to a store knowing exactly what you are looking for. So what am I getting at with this story? Well, I am here to give you some tips and tricks in order to avoid these fashion faux. I want to help YOU eliminate those bad choices before you even start wearing clothes!
Fashion Faux Pas: Mommy's Edition. so let us begin!
Fashion Faux Pas #1: MOM JEANS.
They do not flatter anyone, unless you are a size two, girls who wear a size two can get away with wearing anything. And I hate them, ha! Just kidding, but no really. The only benefit from these jeans is the high rise. As a Mom you gotta pick up the kids or pick up toys from the floor, so when you bend down you don't wanna be showing people your junk in the trunk. Another "good" thing that I've heard about these types of jeans is the comfort. but I have news flash for you ladies! There are SOOO many more styles of jeans that provide style, comfort and that high rise that is very important for Mommys!
Fashion Faux Pas #2: TRACK PANTS/TRACKSUITS
Remember the one Mom from Mean Girls ? Who said "I'm not a regualr mom, I am a cool mom?"
Well.. try not to be that kind of Mom. If you remember being a teenager then you should remember that pretty much anything that your parents did embarrased you, so now imagine your Mom dressing like this and trying to act all "Young and cool" No, just NO! So just do your kids a favor and avoid these tracksuits.
Fashion Faux Pas #3: LOW RISE JEANS
I mean, I feel like I don't need to explain why you shouldn't wear these types of jeans, the picture is pretty self explanatory But just in case some of you still don't get it here I go: These types of jeans are NOT for everyone. If they make you look like this or close to this then pick another pair. No one likes to have a muffin top and no one likes to see a muffin top.
Fashion Faux Pas #4: THE WRONG UNDERGARMENT
This is a no brainer, every woman should know what kind of bra to wear with each shirt she owns. Visit Victoria secret and get measured Know your right size and the right style for you. Also make sure you own the following color bras: white, nude and black!
Fashion Faux Pas #4: LEGGINGS AS PANTS
I will be the first one to admit that if I could wear leggings every day during the winter I would, they are just so comfortable! BUT you must remember that they are leggings and NOT pants, that means that you HAVE to wear a top that is long enough to cover your booty and leggings that are not see through.
I just want to let you all know that I do not want to offend anyone, I think that Moms do so much for their kiddos and husbands that they should do something for themselves. For the longest time my Mom did not care for her appearance, she just cared about mine. She wanted to make sure I looked my best. Now that I am older and can take care of myself I make sure that my Mom looks stylish because she deserves to look good AND feel good!
