Five Things A Grown Woman Should Never Wear
From fishnets to lycra tops and extreme bell bottoms, I've definitely had my fair share of fashion faux pas.
But when you finally grow up (I consider myself still mentally preparing for the process although in actuality, I'm way past the beginning stages of adulthood), there are certain things that you just need to stop wearing.
I'm all for the theory that if you've got it, flaunt it--but these five items do not apply to that theory.
Without further adieu, here is my list of five things grown women should never wear.
1. Overalls (above). Unless you work on a farm, where they are actually functionable, steer clear of this outfit. Please. Even though we're all aware that it's attempting to make a comeback at the moment.
2. Pigtail Braids. Paris Hilton doesn't look good in them, so neither will you. Pigtails are adorable--if you are 5. If you're 35, they will only work in conjunction with a milkmaid costume.
4. Metallic Liquid Leggings. Perhaps you rocked some skin tight, shiny metallic leggings back in the day (like, the '80's), and you probably looked hot in them. But even if you have the body of Gisele Bunchen, there are some trends that need to be blacklisted when you get older. This is definitely one of them.
