Are you following fashion blindly without customising it to suit your figure and colour? Uh-oh, you need to check your wardrobe again. Most often, a fashion statement is surrounded by hype and is a total flop when it comes to daily wear.
However stunning it may look on those super models parading down the ramp, you can hardly wear bright plumes or see-through garments to the office. Unless of course if you`re masochistic and want to be at the receiving end of jokes. Check out the list of trends you would rather do without...
This bizarre creation of fashion gurus is a rage and is apparently created to keep your arms warm when wearing skimpy little tops. But these little `sweater-wannabes` are basically just long arms.
And if you sport them, indeed you have to be a good sport because in all probability you`ll look like as if you had squeezed into your kid sister`s sweater.
Again a rage among the fashion gurus, who are stroking its ruggedness fondly and churning out anything and everything in them - from a boxy, cow-print bag to shoes to jackets. But somehow this particular rugged look is neither exotic nor elegant. It is rather coarse and best avoided.
Ankle Boots with Knee-length Skirts
Let`s face it, ankle boots only look good with pants or long dresses and skirts. Sure, fashion rebounds. But a `ditto`1983 look is a definite no-no! Any time you can see a length of leg above an ankle boot, it`s just screaming old-fashioned
This again had its day. Though it seem to have made a comeback this season, it`s simply too early to recycle.
Sleeveless turtleneck sweater
On some people turtleneck look stunning. But you are no Gwyneth Paltrow or Lauryn Hill. These bulky cables knit seem to swallow a lesser person. And a turtleneck that`s sleeveless? What`s the point?
If you are voluptuous forget it. And if you are skinny then it`s not for you either. Tube tops seem to have a knack of highlighting your sore point and are best avoided.
Salwar and T-shirts
Decide whether it`s ethnic or modern look. This `east-meets-west` combination somehow looks very sloppy. Avoid it at any cost.
