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.
