Top 20 fashion faux pas

There have been discussions going on for a few weeks now on the French language forums about best-avoided errors of taste. Of course, people rarely agree about tastes and colours, but here are the Top 20 errors that people have mentioned the most:

  • 1. Wearing white sport socks with anything other than trainers
  • 2. Wearing socks and sandals
  • 3. Tucking your jeans into your socks
  • 4. Wearing jogging bottoms when not doing sport
  • 5. Simon Cowell-style trousers pulled up to your belly button
  • 6. Wearing the “wrong size” clothes (ankle-swinging trousers, tent-like t-shirt or jacket, etc)
  • 7. Carrying a large wallet in your hip pocket (or on a chain!)
  • 8. Clipping your mobile phone to your belt (or even worse: around your neck!).
  • 9. Wearing shirts with large designs (like dragons/eagles/fire etc)
  • 10. Wearing a tie with a short-sleeved shirt
  • 11. Wearing wacky ties (Ducks, Mickey Mouse or Bart Simpson)

    Wrong about 6, 10 and 13.

    Most fashionable thing right now is too short pants, they should go to your ankles.

    Tie with short-sleeved shirts can also give a great look. It is more military like but nonetheless looks good.

    Tie pins can be used to create a goodlooking effect.
