The photo here shows an attractive lady wearing black. Believe it or not, 80 percent of the population has soft coloring (light brown hair, dishwater blonde with medium light eyes. They don’t look good in black–yet everyone wears it…)
Besides writing a blog, I also love to read, and of course I have read my share of style books. I thought I’d share some of my favorite ones by Clinton Kelly: Oh No, She Didn’t: The Top 100 style mistakes women make and how to avoid them. Written in his witty, fun voice. I love what it says.
I am going to start with the first 25 out of his 100 tips…
1. The mom jean: enough said. 2. Scuffed heels 3. Fancy fingernails (Chevron print) 4. Catholic schoolgirl 5. Tattoos with evening wear 6. Gnarly feet 7. Muffin top 8. Track suits 9. Hairy legs under hose 10. Counterfeit anything (ditch that imitation Louie bag). 11. Low boobs (time for a new bra, sister…) 12. Applying makeup in public (ouch, this one hurts) 13. Pajamas in public 14. Colored suits (guilty of this in the 90s) 15. Reinforced toe 16. Tramp stamps at work 17.Cartoon characters 18. Denim on denim 9. Horse hair (extremely long hair in a pony tail) 20. Socks with clogs 21. Nippin’ out (too tight a top or a bra that’s not covering) 22. Black addiction 23. Suntan hose (enough said). 24. Turtlenecks (most people don’t rock them) 25. Matching your mate
