Top 10 Biggest Fashion Faux Pas

The Top Ten
1 Big ball caps worn crooked on the head

Seriously, it makes you look like a thug or simply somebody with a bad attitude. You don't look cool; you look unapproachable. The same thing goes for guys who wear their hoodies on their heads all the time. What exactly are you trying to hide or hide from?

I agree, it looks ridiculous, especially when 40+ year old men are doing it, and men, please don't wear hats in public buildings. Set an example for your kids.

2 Belly shirts
3 Sagging

Please, just tell me why guys still do this or do it at all. They look retarded! And I've asked the ladies who are their ages (in a college town) if they thought that was hot or something, figuring that's why the guys are doing it. They've all said no! They think it's gross! So guys, why do you do this?

News Flash! No one wants to see your butt or watch you waddle around like some absurd penguin. The only good thing about it is that the cops have a better chance of catching you when you attempt to run.

This is an odd sense of what looks cool. No one wants to see what kind of underwear you prefer. Plus, it gives people a sloppy, poorly dressed, no respect for other people sort of vibe. It's just gross.

4 Canadian Tuxedo (matching denim top and bottom)
5 Overalls

They belong on the farm, keep them there.

No wonder why you only see farmers wear them.

6 Bras that are too tight or too small

Sadly, this is a lot more common than you would think, considering how many women wear the wrong size bra thanks to an outdated measuring system. Hell, I'll admit I wear the wrong size, but only because 26 band bras are so hard to find.

If I can see a bulge out of the top of your bra through your shirt, it's time for a bigger bra. Also, women are often wearing their bras too tight, which creates unnecessary rolls.

7 Fanny packs

No one can honestly say that they have seen someone who looks good wearing a fanny pack. You are not any kind of marsupial: kangaroo, opossum, or otherwise. Just looking at the name "Fanny Pack" makes me grimace. "Fanny." No accessory should be named after a rear end of anything. If that wasn't a red flag for you, you should probably reexamine why you feel the need to look like an out-of-place tourist.

There is nothing important enough that you should be carrying around that merits carrying it around in a fanny pack.

8 Clothes that are too small

I agree, but you could argue that "too small" is subjective. What some North American folks call too small, Europeans might call a tailored look.

Looking like a stuffed sausage is never a good thing. No one wants to see a muffin top.

To all the people who wear this: DON'T!
We are not in a Styrofoam and plastic wrap container.
It doesn't make you look hot; it makes you look sloppy.

9 Muscle shirts

If you are really ripped enough, it will show anyways.

10 Cleavage in the workplace

A woman shouldn't be announcing that she is hunting for a mate or seeking attention by showing cleavage. It is crass and unprofessional, especially for women who work in human services jobs. For example, the only place I have seen a woman with cleavage on a police force was on the Reno 911 series. They certainly make their point with that character. Please leave it at the party or at home. Keep it out of the workplace.

The Contenders
11 Camel toe

Please, do not - I repeat, DO NOT - wear overly tight pants that result in a camel toe. It is extremely unpleasant to witness in public. Additionally, remember to inspect the fit before purchasing pants or jeans.

12 Tight pants and sagging butts on guys

Guys, please, why do you all claim to hate Justin Bieber, yet you emulate his atrocious style? If you want to look sexy with tight pants, make sure they fit your butt well, but not so tight that they cause embarrassing little "hard-ons."

The irony is that sagging makes pants look baggy, but they're wearing tight jeans.

13 Black with brown

I think it's the ugliest color combination ever! People who wear it have to be colorblind. But sadly, you don't have to look at yourself.

Yeah, I wear black jeans that are too big, and my only belt that fits those pants is brown. Yuck.

Some colours are not meant to be worn together!

14 Casual clothing for a business meeting

Anyone can be casual. It takes real effort to look good, and evidence of real effort is impressive in business. Use every advantage.

15 Crocs
16 Mullets

I totally agree. I can't believe that men in my state still wear them. I thought it was a joke when we first moved here.

17 Un-tied skater shoes

Especially with those tight pants, boys (and girls), it makes you look like a PEZ dispenser. Not a good look.

18 Long sleeves shirt under a T-shirt
19 Bling

It makes you look tacky! Not to mention the shine makes me go blind for at least 6 hours at a time!

20 Wife beaters

My elementary school best friend's dad is the definition of this. I just found out that he has a swastika tattooed on his stomach, and I am not surprised at all.

21 White after Labor Day
22 Wearing no belt when tucking shirt into pants with belt loops

One should always wear a belt with pants or jeans if you are tucking your shirt in (if belt loops are available). This act of "tucking your shirt in but wearing no belt where there are loops" is referred to as the fashion "Cardinal Sin." It is a very popular faux pas in the South.

It looks so weird without a belt.

23 VPLs (Visible Panty Lines)
24 Wearing a tie with a short sleeve shirt or polo

Short sleeve shirts are not meant to have ties, neither are polo shirts.

25 Socks and sandals

This should never ever happen! What an oxymoron. The shoes were made so feet could be out in the open air in warm weather! What sense does it make to wear socks with them? It should be so obvious...

What about slides with like Nike socks!? Other than that it should never happen! So I kinda agree.

Socks and sandals make you look like a dork.
