Style Matters: Top 6 Disastrous Details

If fashion was a religion, those would be the six sins of style:
1.Shiny Tights: Tights can be the trickiest part when dressing up.Most women mistakenly underestimate its contribution to a spotless look and go for the cheapest choice; as an outcome SHINY, NYLON-COVERED LEGS EVERYWHERE! No matter how much your dress costs, if the pantyhose is cheap, be sure, it will show. Solution: I do not recommend Wolfords, they're insanely expensive (and when you wear tights you know in advance that they will get destroyed, sooner or later). Just go to an underwear shop, ask the assistant for some help and when you find the right pair, stock up!
2.Poor Quality Hair Extensions: Extra hair is OK, but only if you intend to spend a respectable amount of money in order to get it. Plus, you need the precious help of a professional to make the fuss of finding the perfect color/quality match for you. You cannot save on that, unless you like Barbie quality hair.
3.Clear Bra Straps: I don't know what to say, I don't know what the inventor was thinking, I want to forget that I was -proudly- wearing those in my sweet 13 years of age (I bet I was just happy to wear a bra, please forget that I mentioned that shameful fact about me), and some women continue that massacre of style. JUST STOP THE MADNESS!
4.Acrylic Nails: They belong to the 90s.That's it. They are just tacky (the longer, the worse). And they look cheap, they did even when Victoria Beckham had them on. Go for the simple way, with a thorough manicure all hands can look good. Pick any color you want, even the freakiest one. Just stay away from those, they are not Vogue-ish at all!
5. Underwear Showing: I bet nobody wants the world to know his/her prefered kind of panties. Seamless ones are the cornerstone of every stylish underwear drawer. I swear by them, too.
6. Muffin Look: When you feel fuller than usual just stay away from your tight jeans. Lovehandles are great, curvy women too, but if you went up a size through holidays, prefer size 30 instead of your usual 29. You will look -and feel- better. When you lose that extra weight, go back to your old jeans. (Tip: buy 1-2 pairs of jeggings, they are the absolute solution to PMS tummy). The last picture is what I call "builder's back". I intentionally avoid commenting on it. Nothing more self-humiliating.

YOUR TURN NOW! 
Agree, disagree and add more! Can't wait to hear your opinions.

Haha I agree with everyone of these! Girls are so unnatractive when they do any of the above!

Gertrude said...

I totally agree with all of these, especially the last one and the clear bra straps! Don't know what people are thinking when they wear them .. as if "clear" means "invisible". They still show and look really trashy.

Anna said...

No comment.
But where did you find those pictures?

Όλα αλήθεια είναι πραγματικά τραγικά λάθη!!
Και επιπλέον πολλά πολλά λάθη στο μακιγιάζ...!
10 το πρωί και βλέπεις eyeliner και κόκκινο κραγιόν..
Πολύ ενδιαφέρον το post!!

Foteini said...

I hate clear bra straps! FOr one thing, they are NOT clear/invisible whatever the manufacturer promises! It shows! and in a bad way!!

BUT I have to admit I sometimes prefer shiny tights, because they simply show the leg nicer/longer or maybe its just me...:)))

kisses sweety!

Agree on everything, but one...I call it "a plumber's back" :)

I was with you with everything but acyrlic nails. they will forever be in maybe just not the long crazy ones. But everything else was dead on! :)

Tasha said...

I agree these are terrible looks! I don't know why women show their underwear, or wear jeans that would not fit them properly. I know we all have our bad days though. Great tips as well!

Inspiration partout said...

hahaha!nice post!I agree with all the things you mentionned but I have to add the darker coloured lipliner than the actural lipstick sin!

CHRISTINA said...

Hahha,disloke also every piece of it!

Oh you are so right!!

Froso M. said...

It took me some days to find the pictures via Google, but as I can see from the responses I chose the right ones!

@ Velveteen: "Plumber's back", so funny!

Froso M. said...

@ Gertrude: "Trashy". No better word to describe them, thanks!

@ Suyin: I like socks and high-heeled sandals, as they were presented by Burberry (a/w 09-10). But only a few women can wear those without looking ridiculous!

@ Staxtopouta: Kokkino kragion to prwi den me enoxlei, einai omws ligo dyskolo kathws xreiazetai diarkh ananewsh kai poly (poly omws) prosoxh. Tis perissoteres fores katantaei katastrafiko.

@ Foteini: I thought shiny tights make legs look fatter too, was it just me?

A BRIT GREEK said...

OMG! So can't stand shiny tights, ugh! Great post sweetie, I hope you feel better now - drink lots of orange juice ok!
I wasn't sure if you were going to be at the event y'day!

Thanks for your sweet comment! See you soon koukla!

Bonnie said...

VPL (visible panty lines) are the worst!!! Come on, people. Wear a thong. They really aren't uncomfortable. You get used to it.
Shiny tights remind me of Hooters girls. It's disgusting.
Muffin top = I'm going to barf
I have never understood clear bra straps. I don't see anything wrong with visible bra straps. Everyone knows that, if you are a female, chances are that you are wearing a bra. It's okay if the strap shows. Really.
When I see poor hair extensions, I think of Britney Spears. (I love her, though, so that commnet was not out of malice.)

DinDinaki Koudounaki said...

συμφωνώ με όλα και προσθέτω μερικά που μου έρχονται τώρα πρόχειρα στο μυαλό: άσπρες μυτερές μπότες (άσπρες μπότες γενικά θα έλεγα),τεράστια Logo σε τσάντες και ρούχα, overknee μπότες σε χαμηλού ή μετρίου αναστήματος γυναίκες (εκληπαρώ τις Ελληνίδες να σταματήσουν αυτή την τρέλα)και σε όλες όσες δεν έχουμε πόδια μοντέλου (είμαι 1.74 αλλά τα πόδια μου είναι πιο ζουμερά οποτε βολεύομαι με κάτι άλλο που με κολακεύει καλύτερα), το Burberry carreau.Αυτά έχω κι άλλα σίγουρα αλλα τώρα μου διαφεύγουν. Αααα και η μπανάνα τσαντάκι...χαχαχα αν και την συναντάς σε κάτι καλτ τύπους που είναι και γαμώ.χαχαχαχα

i've never understood the clear bra straps, either. they look like they'd just stick to your skin & start to chafe. i've ALWAYS hated french manicures. i think they only look semi-cute on the toes but i agree with you, a simple color can look so much more sophisticated. the muffin top is just embarassing. there are so many other ways to work your body type. please don't torture yourself. great post :-)

OMG! Great post Froso! I have to add: glitter worn in the day (not that I like it in the night but its more bearable)...

Emmanouela said...

HA HA!! Έχεις δίκιο σε όλα και συμφωνώ, δεν το συζητώ!!! Είχα γράψει κι εγώ κάποια στιγμή στο spinning around για μερικά από αυτά και πράγματι είναι τραγικά!! Και νομίζω ότι δεν έχω κάτι άλλο να προσθέσω που να είναι τόσο τραγικό όσο αυτά! Αν προσέξεις τα παραπάνω, σίγουρα η εμφάνισή σου θα είναι- αν μη τι άλλο- αξιοπρεπής!!

neraiditsa said...

αυτό υποστηρίζω και γω δεν είναι το αν ντύνεσαι από το πιο ακριβό μαγαζί ή απο την λαική ,αλλά το θέμα είναι να τα συνδιάζεις σωστά τα ρούχα και να τα παντρεύεις με πιο κλασσικά και διαχρονικά κομμάτια!!! συμφωνώ με όλα απόλυτα δεν ξέρω πιο από όλα με τρελαίνει πιο πολύ..μάλλον οι πλαστικές τιράντες!!!

Love this post, i totally agree with you!

Maria G. said...

Θέλω και άλλα τέτοιου είδους ποστ! Πολύ πολύ ενδιαφέρον! Θα πρόσθετα τα μισοξεβαμμένα νύχια, ειδικά αν είναι σε έντονα χρώματα και φαίνεται πολύ. Επιπλέον, θα συμφωνήσω την ανώνυμη. Δεν αντέχω να βλέπω απεριποίητες γυναίκες. Είναι δυνατόν να είσαι καθηγήτρια και να έρχεσαι με την φόρμα, άβαφτη και ξεμαλλιασμένη;
