Every year bloggers and well-known women’s magazines diligently compile anti-trend lists. And some things get there with enviable consistency, since they are incredibly difficult to combine with other clothes, and most importantly, they emphasize the flaws of the figure, instead of hiding them. Meanwhile, such clothes appear again and again on store shelves, and then in the wardrobes of many girls. And by the way, without instructions for use, and it would not hurt to note who this instance is suitable for and who is not.
We at Bright Side have prudently compiled a list of clothes, shoes and accessories that girls need to be careful with. Yes, they can help create a vivid image, but they are unlikely to emphasize the dignity of the figure. We promise to be objective. And at the end, we have prepared a bonus that proves that the rules exist to be broken.
1. Dresses and skirts, shortened at the front and long at the back
Dresses and skirts with asymmetrical cut visually lengthen the
2. Capri pants
The specificity of the cut of capri pants can visually break the silhouette and add extra volume. The unfinished leg length shortens the figure, making it chunky. And a variation of these pants in an army cargo style also adds fullness to the legs due to sewn pockets and excessive baggy.
3. Sweatshirts and dresses from flimsy knitwear
Things made from such material combine a sticky fit and poor-quality fabric that does not hold its shape at all. Even the slender girls are turned into caterpillars. After all, thin jersey with almost manic tenacity emphasizes all the irregularities of the silhouette – sides, folds, belly. And besides this, the outlines of underwear often show through the fabric, and because of this there is a risk of looking vulgar.
4. Afghan pants
Wide-leg cotton trousers are actually insanely comfortable and comfortable. But with the figure, they do something unimaginable – catastrophically violate the proportions. The legs look short because the legs start at the knees, and the heavy drape creates additional volume in the hips. In short, this kind of trousers creates a very disproportionate silhouette.
5. Hairpin with pearlsEmbed from Getty Images
Recently popular pearl hairpins have already been added to the anti-trend list . First, they may just look out of place on older women. And secondly, pearls have a round shape and are ideal for girls with an oval face. He will emphasize all the angular features, and in contrast, the face may look rougher.
6. Push-up bra
The foam-rubber cups protruding from under the clothes, similar to armor, are already outdated. In addition, such a bodice often makes the image provocative. It is worth wearing a push-up bra only if you are sure that it is safely hidden under your clothes, looks natural and you feel absolutely comfortable in it.
7. Tights with an abstract print
Openwork tights in light gray or beige tones most often look from afar as a serious skin defect or even a leg disease. Some models successfully create the effect of not fully epilated legs, which is also not very pleasant. If you want to diversify your look, then you should look at dark tights with a clearly traced print, geometric patterns, logos or mesh.
8. Shoes with a pointed toe and a small heel
Such elegant shoes have a huge drawback – they visually enlarge the foot. Therefore, pointed-toed flat-soled shoes or small heels will not decorate girls with a foot size over 36. In addition, in such shoes, the toes are usually unnaturally clenched, which can lead to soreness and corns.
9. Pants culottes
A fashionable novelty is dangerous because it often turns the figure into a square. It is important what the culottes are worn with : graceful shoes make these trousers look more like a skirt, rather feminine, and a sporty one can turn a girl into Carlson.
10. Jacket with wide shoulders
In the 20th century, the fashion for clothes with broad shoulders was of historical significance – in this way women demonstrated their desire to be on a par with men. The trend has returned to modern society, but the understanding comes that jackets with wide shoulders are not suitable for everyone.
They will help to create a harmonious silhouette for girls with a pear shape – to balance the upper and lower body. But girls with an inverted triangle figure should wear such jackets with care, as they can further increase the shoulders.
11. Oversized down jacket
Inflated down jackets, which seem to have been removed from someone else’s shoulder, sometimes warm you better than a woolen blanket. However, overly massive models look ridiculous and even became a meme. Depending on the type of figure, oversized jackets emphasize the fragility of the figure and, alas, just as noticeably set off the extra volumes. Therefore, it is better to bet on clothes of your size.
12. “Mom’s jeans”
This style visually makes the hips more rounded, and the silhouette as a whole is fuller and more feminine, therefore “mom’s jeans” are ideal for girls with narrow hips or with an hourglass figure. Ladies of short stature with a pear figure should not wear such jeans, as they weigh down the hips. Any slightest excess weight will be emphasized by such pants. In addition, usually this model of trousers is very tight at the hips, so it can be great to flatten the butt point.
13. Cropped jeans
Such a jacket often disproportionately divides the silhouette into two parts, makes it heavier and greatly increases the shoulders. In addition, cropped jeans emphasize the belly and waistline, so girls with volumes in this area should refuse this model. You can give preference to classic and sporty options for jackets with a free cut, which are suitable for absolutely everyone.
Bonus: crop top for everyone
Of course, all of the above is nothing more than general style guidelines. After all, it is always useful for girls to be aware of the latest news and fashion trends one way or another. In real life, you can wear anything that makes you smile at your reflection in the mirror and feel confident. And girls all over the world have already proven it.
In one of the issues of Oprah Winfrey’s magazine O Magazine, an article was published where the author recommends that women with curvaceous curves give up crop tops. In response, the ladies decided to start a riot – immediately the hashtag #RockTheCrop appeared on the network , which was supported by thousands of girls (you can follow the link and see what came of it). They posted their photos in crop tops, accompanied by proud captions in the style: “I wear everything that makes me happy!”
