Mintel, a British company that conducts marketing studies, found that 44% of women hate shopping. But even if you like going shopping, your purchases may oftentimes be impulsive. That’s because it’s fun to buy things you like without spending tons of time in the store. This is how troublesome clothes appear in your wardrobe: they’re stylish but uncomfortable or hard to take care of. In this article, we will tell you what clothes you should steer clear from in order to avoid feeling regret after purchasing.
Bright Side has collected 12 pieces of clothing that will make your life unnecessarily harder.
1. Light summer pants
It’s so nice to wear light pants when the summer season comes around. But it’s awful when someone tells you that they’re too light or too tight. Unfortunately, underwear is often visible when wearing these kinds of pants — especially the kind that shouldn’t be seen. And that’s just not cool. What to do: Choose pants made of thicker fabric or different colors.
2. Tight, thin knitwear
When choosing a tight dress made of thin knitwear, we picture ourselves as tall and fit. And when we are in the fitting room, we might even make ourselves look like this by making a straight back and sucking in the belly. This way, we appear perfect! However, it’s almost impossible to keep this kind of stature in real life. At some point, you will relax and the knitwear will immediately highlight the natural curves of the body that one would probably prefer to be hidden. What to do: Choose unlined dresses.
3. Strapless clothing
Tops and dresses with open shoulders look very feminine and romantic. When choosing such dresses, we don’t think about the harsh reality that we’ll have to face on the very first day of wearing it. You will curse the person who made this type of dress trendy! What to do: If you really want to, use tricks. But even the thinnest straps will help to avoid the trouble of a strapless dress without ruining its look.
4. Shorts and dresses that are too short
Even if you have a beautiful body, don’t buy clothes that are too short. Ultrashort shorts and dresses are really impractical — it’s very hard to sit or even bend while wearing such clothes. You’ll have to fuss with the short dress all day and hold down a loose one whenever any wind blows by. Now imagine that you are wearing really short shorts and you need to sit down on public transportation. You have no idea who sat there before you and now you are going to touch this spot with your bare skin! What to do: Wear short shorts and skirts when you are going to the beach. However, if you need to move a lot in the city, you should wear clothes with more coverage that won’t cause as much trouble.
5. Dresses and skirts that are too long
This is another piece of clothing that highlights feminine curves but causes a lot of trouble. Because the fabric is so long, you might walk on it the whole night. If this is the case, you should be ready to wash the dress after each time you wear it (unless you want it to look dirty all the time). Of course, you can hold it with your hand, but this is really annoying to do. And of course, someone will eventually step on your dress if you haven’t already. And you’d probably want to avoid falling down in front of a bunch of people! What to do: Choose dresses of moderate lengths for everyday use.
6. Clothing with complicated decor
We can’t deny that clothing adorned with stylish and complicated decor is really beautiful and unique — unless we’re talking about famous Chinese designers or underwear. And we’re not talking about evening dresses that you wear only once. In that case, things with a lot of decoration may look great. But for clothing you wear every day, this is just too much. If you want to wear clothing like this, you should be ready to wash and iron it every day. What to do: Leave dresses like this for special occasions only.
7. Low-quality items
When you choose cheaper clothing items, you’re causing yourself more trouble. Cheap fabrics start to look bad very quickly — they stretch and lose their color. Low-quality clothes are often unpleasant to the touch and they make you sweat more which doesn’t only ruin the clothes but also makes you feel awkward. This kind of clothing is considered to be of low-quality and they don’t ever fit you quite right. What to do: Don’t refuse to buy cheap clothes. But instead, pay attention to the fabric and overall quality of the clothing and decide whether you are ready to pay more for better clothes or not.
8. Solid white clothes
Snow white clothing can cause many potential problems. For example, your teeth might seem yellowish if you wear something completely white. And if you want to wear 2 white things together, they may not match perfectly. White clothes set a lot of limitations. When you choose such clothing, be careful because nothing else reveals a body’s flaws quite like the color white. What to do: Out of all the shades of white, choose the warmest like milk or ivory.
9. Solid black clothes
A totally black look seems to be a great style choice in many situations. But you still need to be very smart when wearing such an outfit. Again, it’s very hard to get the shade of black to match things correctly. If you make a mistake, the image will look cheap — even if the things you’re wearing are expensive. Even the smallest hairs and lint are perfectly visible on black clothing. When you wear black, you have to constantly look for these the whole time you’re wearing it. What to do: An elegant alternative to black is a deep dark blue, dark green, or dark red.
10. Clothes made of faux leather
Leather leggings have become an anti-trend. And there is a reason for this: they are not only too revealing, but they also make an annoying sound. This squeaky sound is unnerving to most people, and it can drive the person wearing it crazy pretty fast. This is one of the biggest disadvantages of all faux-leather clothing including skirts, coats, and more. Besides, leather clothing requires perfect taste. Most of the time, it looks too extravagant, out of place or even vulgar. What to do: Replace leather clothing with regular fabric. Choose classic pants, for example.
11. Shoes made of faux leather
Shoes making squeaky sounds are terrible! No matter how shiny your new loafers are, if they make sounds when you walk, there is no way to compensate for it. The sound accompanying every step you make is unpleasant. That’s why you should choose less shiny, more comfortable shoes. What to do: Remember that shiny boots and shoes are quite rough and they can often hurt your feet. So, choose shoes made of soft materials instead.
12. The latest fashion
It’s easy to make a mistake and buy clothing that will cause a lot of trouble. Sometimes people know the clothing will be troublesome but buy it anyway because they know it’s trendy. A fashionable look, color, or silhouette may be so out of sync with your body shape, that it will look bad no matter where you wear it. But just because it’s trendy now, you can’t avoid wanting it! That’s why sometimes we buy some really ridiculous things. What to do: When choosing clothes, think about your style and your own specific needs without trying to follow trends blindly.
