Many of us have worn something whether it be to an event or in our past that hasn’t exactly been ideal. As for people in the fashion world this kind of thing also happens even with publicists, make-up artists, hair stylists, and stylists. So in all actuality we really shouldn’t feel so bad seeming how “real” people have none of these advisors. If we’re lucky we have an honest friend, a blunt sister, or a good sales consultant who can let us know if we look absolutely ridiculous. This brings me to the gut of this article.
When Is It Socially Acceptable to…
wear a mustache? While mustaches have definitely NOT made a comeback, if you are under the age of 30 and rocking a stache please step forward and receive the award for creeper of the year ( because there is no other reason for growing one). There are plenty of ways to get around this once cool trend. Don’t discriminate the rest of your face. Spread the love of facial hair somewhere other than just under your nose!
wear leggings as pants? Well…how many times is it appropriate to wear just your underwear outside? Never…exactly!
wear statement pieces? Always! However, anytime you wear a statement necklace don’t wear earings or wear very small ones. Vice versa for statement earings.
Fur? If it’s real you might want to hide from PETA! If during hunting season you might want to stand clear of the woods! Otherwise wear fake fur only in small doses!
wear a sequined dress? Only at a big event such as a new years party, prom, or something similar can you wear a full-out sequined dress. No weddings (you’re not the one deserving attention)! Definitely not a company or low-key party. Sequined dresses are meant only for flashy events!
wear dark lipstick? This look is automatically going to be dramatic so don’t try this during the daylight hours; you’ll end up with a look that’s frightening otherwise!
wear the same thing more than once? Unless you can afford to buy new clothes all the time….how can you not?!
wear harem pants? Only if you’re M.C. Hammer, and I’m not sure that makes it right?!
wear a jump suit? If you are a mechanic!
look like crap? In your own home! Cherish these times my friends!
So when going out ask yourself a question: Is this appropriate in 2009?
A. No, I look like a creeper.
B. Maybe on the runway?
C. I could definitely wear this to Olive Garden!
