on other Fashion boards I have visited (aol) they have a fashion don't board. I have always found this to be the most interesting. So what are your fashion don'ts?
A couple of mine:
-those baby tees that say "princess" or "angel" etc.
-waay to tight pants
-anything Christina Aguleria wears
-sweatsuits
-one shoulder tops
-fried hair
-neon colors

ok that is all I can think of for now.

Black and navy together. That's obvious.
Any item with glitter on it (if you're 18 or older.)
Miniskirts with 4-inch stilettos.
Sweatshirts worn inside out! That was huge in middle school but thankfully I think it's died out.
The obscenely long fake nails that extend an inch past the fingertips. How can you do ANYTHING with those on?

White before Easter or after Labor Day (call me old fashioned and southern)

Braless (with a few very flat-chested exceptions)

Thongs that show

Super tight clothes

Lots of necklaces worn at the same time

Spike heels with shorts

Nail polish that is wearing off

Long toenails

Unzipped shorts with the waistband turned down (a la Mariah Carey) -- real trashy

Real fur

Clothes that are dirty or smelly

How about wearing black and brown together? Some people that doesn't bother them, but it drives me nuts! Brown shoes with black pants or vice versa? Yuck!

i think brown and black can look fine if you do it right. i wore brown pants and a black tank top. my shoes had black and brown in them. jenifer aniston wears brown and black on ''friends''.well she did a couple years back. i think it depends also on the shade of brown.

I have to agree with SG on black and brown. I have two pairs of heeled Tommy loafers, one black, one brown and identical in every other way. I wear them all the time. Last week I (literally) dressed in the dark and ended up wearing the black pair with brown pants. It bugged me all day.

Yes, yes, yes!!! Oh, I really hate those jeans. I have an aversion to 'trendy' things to begin with, but most of the time these jeans are very unflattering too. They have the white parts on typical problem areas like thighs and buttocks!

Those ARE awful! Why waste perfectly good jeans? I understand that the trend is to buy clothes that already look five years old (American Eagle, anyone?) but if I want tattered, faded jeans I'll give them to my cat.

I think the novelty of faded Jeans is the same that attracts us to antiques. You kind of have to live in an environment where they fit in.

For example I live in rural CT right now. Everything is very old & faded, so I pick out clothes that are purposefully a little muted & faded. It makes me look like I was born right from the earth so-to-speak. ;) I can see though how this would not work in, say, downtown NYC. lol

BTW, if you have a sensitive eye you can create a perfect style guide for yourself by taking cues from the area you live in. I don't believe in fashion do's and dont's. If the clothes you pick out make you look amazing & fit in well with your environment you can't go wrong. (allthough if you have a very good eye you can sometimes pick clothes specifically to stand out in your environment)

OMG, I walked a few blocks yesterday evening behind a gal who was wearing fishnet hose with cheap foam slides. YUCK! She was the very picture of tacky. She was wearing a black goth dress that was at least 2 sizes to small to boot.

She was holding hands with a guy that seemed quite normal and sweet. He must need glasses.

I agree with most of the above and now here are my personal peeves. I get so tired of seeing everyone around here (South Bend, IN) in NASCAR and Notre Dame clothing! It's everywhere! I don't have a problem if it's game day or race day, but some woman actually wore a ND jersey and jeans to a wedding we attended a couple of weeks ago! It was an outdoor wedding, but jeez, couldn't they borrow something for the day?

I agree with Gally 2nd post. If you live in an area that has never heard of Jimmy Choos and you fork over the $500 for them, and no one notices even if you tell them and they have that lost look in their eyes, then whats the use.
Its like the saying "If a tree falls in the forest and no one saw it, did it really fall?"

Some people are fine with some of the fashion don'ts u have mentioned. I'm fine with these 3:

1. Hose and opened toed shoes

2. Unpolished nails and open toed shoes~So what if they didn't paint their nails? I never usually paint my nails, and I wear open toed shoes all the time!

3.Light lipstick/lipgloss~Just as long as it makes your lips shiny!
