Steer Clear Of These Fashion Mishaps

Steer Clear Of These Fashion Mishaps

Let’s face it, no one is perfect. We all make mistakes, and we are the first to admit we’ve made some fashion mishaps along the way. Although many of our fashion mishaps lie deep in the archives of our middle school days, we do find ourselves occasionally making some style mistakes in recent times. With thousands of trends out there, it seems impossible to know what’s right and wrong in the world of fashion. To eliminate some of this confusion and help you live out your best stylish life, Urban Planet created a list of fashion mishaps that you should avoid.

Same-Wash Denim

We’re all for some denim on denim looks. Correction: we adore denim on denim outfits that don’t result in sensory overload (i.e. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the 2001 American Music Awards). However, when you want to master the double denim, be sure to choose pieces of denim that aren’t the same wash. When styling same-wash denim, the outfit becomes too convoluted. Even worse, you run the risk of appearing as a coordinated bore. When switching up your washes, it becomes less uniform and more fashionable! We love matching a dark wash jacket with some women’s denim jeans. Urban Planet has plenty of denim of various washes that you need to check out:

Loose Tops and Paper Bag Pants

We love paper-bag pants. They’re both cute and affordable? They can look so good, but they are also easy to wear wrong. When it comes to styling these precious pants, make sure to pair it with something fitted on top. When you style it with a loose-fitting top, it creates an unflattering look since the shorts are unable to do their job of hugging those hips and giving you that hourglass figure. Whether you’re in the mood for a crop-top or a bodysuit, make sure your top is tight to allow the paper-bag pants to work their magic! Here are some of our favourite paper-bag pants that you are sure to love.

Shirt Dresses

Although super comfy, shirt dresses are the ultimate no-no when it comes to flattering fashion. With no waist-defining magic or super chic qualities, shirt dresses have done their time, and now it’s time to part ways. If you’re staying home or hanging out at your friend’s house wear a shirt dress and own it. If you’re heading out for the night, the shirt dress needs to stay in your closet. We promise you there are so many dresses out there that are equally comfortable yet figure-flattering and fashionable. Urban Planet has so many waist-cinching dresses that will make you forget about those boring old shirt dresses.

Boring Gym Fashion

Ladies, the days of sporting baggy old T-shirts and plain leggings to the gym are long over. Although we love the comfort our gym ensembles gave us, we are looking to brighter, more fashionable and fit pastures. Matching workout sets are just about everywhere today. From fun prints and patterns to bright and bold colours, it’s time to step up that gym fashion. Check out some of our favourite athleisure fits to spruce up your next workout session!

Fitting Jumpsuits

We can’t get enough of women’s jumpsuits. Just one piece to throw on, and voila! You have a stylish ensemble that is also comfortable. However, jumpsuits are only successful when the fit is just right- and sometimes it’s easy to make the mistake of choosing one that has the same fit throughout. Whether it’s a loose bottom and a tight top or vice versa, it is important that a jumpsuit defines our waist and leaves us feeling our best. Urban Planet has tons of jumpsuits that look flattering on all body types.  Check out some of them here:
