The turn of December brought with it the honest exclamation from this year’s British Fashion Emerging Talent award winner JW Anderson – “I hate dresses and eveningwear is tripe,” he admitted. The new Versus recruit set to fill the shoes of Christopher Kane went on to add, “nowadays women want to mix things, a dress limits you in the capacity.”
Being a fan of dressing up and glamorous silhouettes, sparkle and fur, I guess it’s fair to say I couldn’t disagree more with the young designer. Every fashionista however like Anderson has their own taste and could give you a number of things that they would never be seen wearing. Here I am going to share my personal fashion pet hates that are enough to give JW a run for his money!
‘Boyfriend’ style, baggy jeans
Looking at baggy jeans on store websites you could mistake it for the men’s section. In my teens when let’s say I wasn’t so fashion forward, each time I wore a pair it was the least feminine I could feel. Really I should have known it was wrong when it felt that wrong!
With the pencil skirt as the exception, the vintage inspired midi skirt looks like something I would only ever expect to see my Nan in. The colourful floaty shape is made even worse when fine pleating is added on top. Maxi looks great on any figure so why not make it full length!
There aren’t many people in favour of the stumpy kitten when shoes on the market are getting higher and so many new styles are coming in like the wedge with no heel. A lover of statement factor fashion, heels for me are all about making legs look longer and toned which kitten certainly does not in a very ugly manner!
Nothing for me says common and tacky in fashion like a printed tee. Who comes up with some of these awful slogans?! There is actually one in New Look at the minute with ‘tramp’ written in huge letters. Hardly attractive to say the least! I’m sure as well that 9 times out 10 if you were to ask someone if they liked the band on their top they would have no clue who they are.
Do you agree? Would you wear these items?
