Love them or hate them, when it comes to fashion, celebrities often have an advantage over the general masses due to their personal stylists, front-row seats at fashion shows and their friendships with top designers, but that doesn’t mean they always get it right.
Here’s a list of seven celebrity fashion dos and don’ts from which we can all learn something.
A style made famous by Justin Bieber, the skinny legs and extreme crotch droop of harem pants is a hideous style. It might work as a stage costume, but that’s about it.
Floral print went out of fashion for sofas and curtains several decades ago, so there’s no reason to believe it’s gained a second life as clothing fabric. If you harbor any doubt, take a look at Kim Kardashian at this year’s Costume Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
If every layer of your outfit, including accessories, uses a single color, you’re violating several fashion laws. At a recent event in New York City, Kelly Clarkson donned a fashionable red-and-black plaid Alexander McQueen dress. Pairing it with red pumps, nail polish, lipstick and a red cardigan, however, turned the look into a fashion eyesore.
This might be debatable among certain groups, but a major fashion don’t that celebrities often ignore is the excessive boob-squeezing outfit. It’s never fashionable to look as though you’re suffocating or will be sore.
Kristen Wiig’s recent Marchesa outfit proves that these three are no longer fashionable together, especially when each element is the same color.
The deep v-neck has been a popular style for European men for a while now, but the look just doesn’t translate across the Atlantic Ocean.
A great suit can make a guy look like a million bucks. A bad suit just makes him look foolish. Funky patterns, bright colors and pairing suits with sneakers are all bad habits practiced by stars like Robert Downey Jr., Will Smith and Dwyane Wade.
Blazers are the ultimate wardrobe staple for both men and women. Jennifer Aniston is one celebrity who really knows how to rock a blazer.
Julianne Moore in slimming white at the premiere of “Carrie” and Jennifer Lawrence in chic red at the Golden Globes are just two examples of how glamorous the minimalist design really is.
Hayden Panettiere, star of the cult-classic series “Heroes,” stepped out in New York City wearing a pair of blood-red leather pants, showing everyone that leather is indeed still in fashion.
Whether it’s Kristen Stewart photographed at LAX or the character Emily Fields on “Pretty Little Liars,” military boots are the ultimate casual accessory to dress down any outfit.
For guys, plimsolls are the perfect casual sneaker and Reem Clothing offers a wide selection from which to choose. This is a nice new brand of menswear that features the lightweight sneaker to perfectly complement a laidback look.
From Walter White’s pork pie hat to Neal Caffrey’s fedora, hats are a fashion accessory that transcends time, but they’re not just for men. Beyonce, Keira Knightley and Reese Witherspoon have all been spotted looking stylish — and feminine — in a fedora.
Using Neal Caffrey as an example once more, the three-piece suit is the ultimate in smooth yet masculine fashion.
