Women Fashion Faux Pas - as part of the women's style series on clothing and fashion by GeoBeats.
Hi, I am Beth Berliner, I am a wardrobe consultant with Revamp. I work and help women organize their closets and their clothing to have the best possible wardrobes. I think there are three major fashion faux pas for women. And the first one we all do sometimes because we cannot help ourselves, which is wear things that are in style but not necessarily things that look good on our body, on our physique. So we want people looking at us, and not at the piece of clothing, and very often that is what happens when we do not dress for our bodies. The second faux pas I think women do is they buy things, they buy an outfit off a mannequin. So, you know, for instance, all leather. You really do not need to have the leather vest and the leather jacket on at the same time. What would be much more appealing would be to have a cotton T-shirt, and a leather jacket and a pair of denim jeans - much more interesting.
The third faux pas, which we see a lot, and we all do it sometimes as well, is wear our workout clothes all day. Women, we need to change out of our workout clothes at some point. Now it does not mean necessarily you need a lot of time and you need to take a shower and do everything. How about just taking off the top that you probably were sweating in at the gym, and putting a really nice cardigan on instead. Taking the sneakers off and putting some flats on or even some cute toms just to run around town. You will look much more put together that way, and I do think it is a faux pas in today's world.
