The 5 Least Flattering Trends

I think people underestimate how great it is to be able to think for yourself.  Why is this important? It’s important because it gives us the ability to decipher between the trends that we love and the ones that do our bodies an injustice.  Here are five trends that we see in stores or magazines all the time, and yet I rarely see anyone who actually looks attractive wearing any of these trends.

I love clothes that highlight the natural shape of the body.  Peplum tops do not do this.  They add an unnatural flare at the belly.  If you’re skinny, they create the impression that you’re not.  And if you have a little bit extra around the middle, they accentuate that.  Either way, you’re screwed.

2. Rompers

There’s a reason why these are always found in the sale/clearance section of a store: no one wants them.

3. Jumpsuits

If you’re lucky enough to be tall, you may not have to worry about rompers gaping at the belly because of extra material.  However, even if you’re tall, I’ve yet to find any guy who thinks a onesie is attractive on an adult.

4. Bodysuit

When did one-piece bathing suits turn into bodysuits that can be worn as part of an ensemble for day or night?  Does it make sense as a piece of active-wear for dancing or another kind of sport? Sure.  But does it do anything to enhance a fashionable outfit? No.  So leave it for the pool or the dance floor, but please let’s keep it off the streets.

5. Socks with Sandals

Speaking of keeping things off the streets, I think everybody would be better off if socks and sandals were banned from public places.

Let’s just hope these five looks vanish from the runways, stay far away from stores, and disappear from the pages of magazines.  How can we make that happen?  Don’t buy into the trend.

Love,

    Love this!!! They are all so true!! Socks and sandels gross me out! Jumpsuits and Rompers never fit! You have to be tall, but not to talk like I am (5’8) and flat all over!(not me) Bodysuits I think are only ment for ballet class or a one piece bathing suit other then that do not wear it out in public!
