10 Fashion Etiquette Blunders

10 looks deserving a quick demise.

Some looks are timeless: The pencil skirt, the tailored black jacket, the cardigan sweater, Ryan Gosling on our arm, but others deserve to die a quick and painless death during some dark night. Here are ten looks we’ve collectively agreed are in serious need of retirement.

Forehead Headbands
Wannabe disco princess or incoming migraine headache? We’re still not sure.

Ironic Frontier Headgear
Odds are that if it was worn on a wagon trail, it doesn’t want to be taken for an iced cappuccino at your local coffee shop. This also goes for the Ironic Sunbonnet sitting outside a French restaurant on Hillhurst eating a chocolate croissant. (Recently spotted, I swear.)

High-Waisted Pants
Casual separates have their place. It’s not a mere inch or two below your bra line.

The Bumpet
The evolutionary purpose of the bumpet is as yet unclear. Is it supposed to convey a larger head and therefore intelligence? Is it meant to scare off aggressive bears by making the wearer appear larger than she is? Or is it just something that best deserves a slot in nighttime infomercials? You be the judge.

Pantless McGee
Pantless is now seen cruising through airports and smoking outside of nightclubs. Previous to Lady Gaga, it was what happened when you did too many shots of Bacardi 151 and found it too tiring to undress completely for bed.

Daisy Dukes
Daisy Dukes have one rightful place under the sun – on Catherine Bach strutting across our screens on TV Land network re-runs of  The Dukes of Hazzard. For the rest of us, it’s time to retire our cutting shears.

Power Suits
We get it; some women want to be taken seriously in the work place. But this does not mean having to walk through a doorway sideways while evoking Frankenstein’s monster. Embrace feminine lines, powerful women of the world! If men expect us to look like linebackers, they can get over it.

Meat Dress

RIP, thinly-sliced prosciutto, RIP.

Oversized Eyeglasses
Hipster glasses, meet teen idol stardom. Just that should make you stop.

We’re just going to go with PETA on this one.
