Such programs come under different names like fashion police, hit or miss, who got it right etc, and you will see the presenter(s) bring our famed celebrities and VIP’s to the spotlight and literally dissect them or their fashion sense into bits and either hail them into the fabled hall of fame for getting it right or jeer them into the hall of shame for committing fashion “crime”.
Although our celebrities and VIP’s are unfortunate to always find themselves under the spotlight with paparazzi perpetually on their heels.
While their “sins” are laid bare for the whole world to pour derision on, we the “commoners” are no “saints” either, the only difference being that while theirs is blown out of proportion our own faux pas goes unnoticed or at most only observed by those around us, and sometimes, they may not have the guts to tell us how awful we look in our poorly assembled outfit.
Here are some of the fashion crimes we commit every day.
- WEARING THE RIGHT OUTFIT FOR THE WRONG OCCASION
Wearing a pair of snickers, shorts and a T shirt with a matching fez cap may be ideal for a picnic or make you appear smart like you’re going to give Tiger woods’ a run for his money In the field of golf but going out with such to the office, a dinner party or any other professional place will certainly be inappropriate.
- WRONG COLOR COMBINATION
Except you’re a clown in a circuit show, a father Christmas or a comedian, going on a color riot is simply a no-no, maximum of three colors for a man and four for a lady should be enough to make a statement, but going beyond that becomes a fashion crime.
- BEING INSENSITIVE
A tight fitting pink outfit that could barely conceal your beautiful pair of laps may accentuate your figure and give you the Angelina Jolie look but wearing such to a religious gathering like a Church, Mosque, and Temple or to the cemetery while other bereaved friends and family members are on black suits will surely appear indecent and insensitive.
- NOT PLAYING BY THE RULES
Fashion 101 states that the colors of the footwear must match with that of the belt basically and should also not contrast much with other items like the hand bag or other accessories.
- NOT PLANNING ACCORDINGLY
Either as a tourist, diplomat or student on exchange program etc. The moment you’re planning for a long distance travel you must consider the environment you’re heading to and get clothes that will suit the place. Travelling with winter clothes to the tropics will certainly set on fire and leave you sweating profusely.
- LIVING IN A FOOLS PARADISE
You may have looked drop dead gorgeous during your teenage years back in the 1970’s and may have equally worn tight fitting gowns and leggings to accentuate that hour glass figure that always sent the boys drooling with wild imaginations, but trying to replicate those times now you’re in your eighties will not just be a turn off but will also be downright disgusting. And come to think of it, what point exactly are you trying to prove. A shriveled skin, a collapsed mammary gland or a shrunken waist? Don’t get it twisted, old age is beautiful but not in the physical.
