It seems that modern women aren’t restricted at all when it comes to fashionable looks. That’s why combinations such as shoes and bags made from different materials that were banned in the past are extremely popular now. But we can’t forget about common sense even if we’re trying to be trendy.
Bright Side follows fashion trends but understands that mixing certain items just isn’t the best idea.
8. Thigh-high boots with a below-the-knee skirt
Why is it a bad idea? High shoes paired together with a long skirt make our legs look shorter. If you have barefoot shoes, you’ll look even shorter (even if your legs are actually long). What should you wear instead? Wear ankle boots or sneakers (if you like this style). If you can’t help wearing thigh-high boots with a long skirt, it’s recommended to choose a high-waisted skirt.
7. Thigh-high boots with clothes covered in details
Why is it a bad idea? Too many details and decor elements make your image look cheap. What should you wear instead? Thigh-high boots are a bright accent so there’s no need for any more details. Try to avoid wearing clothes with decorative elements. Vivid skirts look great with simple shoes such as ankle boots.
6. Maxi skirts with elongated coats
Why is it a bad idea? Maxi skirts and elongated coats paired together make our image look less proportional and elegant. What should you wear instead? Long skirts look great with cropped outerwear like a jacket or a fitted parka. It’s recommended to wear long coats with jeans or pants.
5. A cocktail dress with boots (ankle boots)
Why is it a bad idea? Cocktail and party dresses are suitable to wear during celebrations. Regular boots or ankle boots aren’t appropriate for such events. What should you wear instead? Elegant pumps are the best choice when it comes to festive events. If you wear heeled sandals, don’t forget that tights are banned in this case.
4. Heels with military clothes
Why is it a bad idea? If you’re going to wear a short dress, it’ll look vulgar with heels. If you want to wear pants, you’ll simply look silly. What should you wear instead? Military clothes can be easily combined with sneakers. You may also try military boots or barefoot ankle boots.
3. A long cardigan with a fluffy midi skirt
Why is it a bad idea? An elongated cardigan won’t allow you to highlight your body shape which is extremely important if you wear a midi skirt. What should you wear instead? Such skirts look really good with short cardigans — both items highlight a person’s waist. A blazer combined with a belt is another great variant. It’ll complete your image in the most beautiful way.
2. Culottes with sneakers
Why is it a bad idea? Culottes “steal” your height and make your long legs look short if you wear them with sneakers. What should you wear instead? Such pants look mind-blowing with high heels. If you want to look taller, choose culottes and shoes that are light in color.
1. Thigh-high boots with shirt-dresses
Why is it a bad idea? Such an image looks incomplete as if we’ve forgotten to put a skirt on. What should you wear instead? Slightly elongated shirt-dresses look way more interesting and elegant. If you already have a short shirt-dress, try to combine it with leggings and boots or ankle boots.
