One of the saddest (and coincidentally most fun) parts of my job is seeking out the real life fashion don’ts and catching them on camera. The summer time tends to bring out some of the worst fashion don’t offenders, due to the hot weather and prevalence of tank tops and other spaghetti-strapped clothing.
These are all real candid fashion don’t scenarios I captured in real life. Thankfully my phone has a quick camera on it, although sometimes the pictures turn out blurry when I’ve only got time for one shot.
Real Life Fashion Don’ts – The Bra Confusion Edition
Criss-Cross Nonsense. This fashion don’t was captured at the grocery store. This woman’s use of her bra and shirt straps (pictured below) just plain confused me. Somehow, she felt the need to fill the entire open back with a bra. She must have thought a criss-cross backed bra would be best since she had tied her shirt’s straps in a knot in the middle to form an x.
The Racerback No-No. Pictured below is a woman who is clearly confused about which shape of top to use the racerback bra with. To clarify: the racerback bra goes with the racerback shirt. The same shape of the garment ensures that your underwear stays private! Instead, this poor lady has displayed almost the entire back of her bra for the whole deli to see. (Blurry picture from the camera phone – so sorry.)
Cut-Out Confusion. Below, this fashion don’t was captured in San Diego on a woman who looked more “Jersey Shore” than Californian. It was such a shame about her choice of undergarments; the bra doesn’t fit the dress on the top or across the back. The whole back of the bra exactly lined up with the cut-out in her dress. Which means – you guessed it – she showed the whole city her bra every time her hair moved, which was every time she took a step.
Don’t let these fashion don’ts happen to you! Always match the shape of your bra to the shape of your clothing. Ladies, I beg of you, if you only leave the Real Life Fashion Don’ts with once takeaway, it’s this: always look in the mirror before you leave the house!
