That’s right, my darlings, even fashion makes a total faux pas every now and then and so do the girls and women who insist on wearing the ridiculous pieces. Fashion is beautiful when it emphasises our femininity and makes us gorgeous, otherwise it’s just nonsense. There are some pieces for which I have no other word than ugly, even if they are fashionable and even if the lovely Chiara Ferragni wears them … although, to be honest they look bad even on her. This is my selection.
Furry sandals or loafers
I have no idea who came up with this model, but I get the feeling Gucci had something to do with it. Even though this Italian brand is considered a synonym for luxury, this type of footwear is just strange. Especially, when they’re worn by unpedicured feet, and the thick fur just makes you wonder, if it used to belong to a beaver, or perhaps a fox … And what is the purpose of fur in the summer? to keep your feet nice and toasty when it’s already hot outside? Ugh.
90’s style tracksuits
We’ve seen Rihanna and Kim Kardashian wear them, but when you actually see them up close and hear the plastic rustling sound they make, it’s just a trip down memory lane back to the worst of the 90’s. If they also have a stripe down the side, bingo! And don’t even think women only wear these to the gym, far from it! They style them with heels and wear them to daytime events. I really don’t understand the point of these track bottoms, I wouldn’t even wear them to take the trash out.
When I first saw them, I thought it was one of those magic weight loss pieces; you know, when you apply the smelly algae product, wrap yourself in plastic wrap and wait for a miracle to happen. These leggins are … simply unwearable and ugly. They enhance all the weak spots and make you look as though you have tons of cellulite everywhere. And when our beloved Kim puts them on, with her hips, I simply have to turn away. And may her fans please forgive me.
The ones that show your bum and some other parts as well. I guess it’s ok to put them on when you’re 14, but later on it’s just not. And I really see no reason why we should stroll around wearing practically nothing more than underwear, and even better, with heels. This is a really a magical combination I saw the other day at an event; let there be no mistake, the lady was a model, but she ended up looking like a tramp.
Frankenstein platform shoes
Enormous. Thick. Crude. Like the shoes used by the first men on the Moon that made sure they stayed on the satellite’s surface. If a skinny woman wears them, they look even stranger, because they’re hard to walk in and I really don’t understand how she fails to realise that. Platform shoes are a bit tricky anyway, but these are borderline treacherous.
I’m not sure when this protest against the bra begun. It’s not that I love it, but surely, had I put on a see through top, I would definitely decide to wear a bra or a sports bra. There are certain parts of the body that aren’t meant for the public and taboos have nothing to do with it, whereas elegance does. And then came the pierced nipple trend, which cannot be a very personal thing, if you decide to put it on display for the entire world to see. My only hope is that the next big trend won’t become piercing your other intimate body parts, otherwise we might end up walking around without undies.
