3 Things No One Should Wear. Ever.

OK ladies. Let's be honest. Do you have something embarassing in your closet? A piece of clothing that drives your friends nuts or looks terrible on you?(Which is a shame, because you're so beautiful.)
Here's the deal, I want to save you a lifetime of ridicule. So here's a list of things that you should never wear. Ever.

1. Uggs in the summer
Ugg boots started out as anti-fashion. After all, they have flat soles, no shape and a rather bland design. Australian pilots used to wear these boots, made with sheepskin and shearling, to keep their feet warm and insulated. Some people say their name actually comes from people calling them "ugly boots." Uggs had a bit of popularity in the 1970s with California surfers, who liked the way the shoes kept their feet warm after surfing in cold water. But Uggs hit the big time when Oprah Winfrey gave them away on her TV show in the early 2000s.
 While there's certainly nothing wrong with the Ugg boot or wanting to keep your feet warm, it's just a bit strange when you see people wearing them in 90 degree heat with a sundress- or short-shorts. It's has to be hot inside those boots! And no one likes sweaty feet. Put the Uggs in the closet, get a nice pedicure, and slip on some comfy gladiator sandals.
2. Leggings as pants
 There's nothing wrong with leggings as pants per se. But let's get one thing straight: Leggings are not pants. I repeat: Not pants. If you're wearing leggings, no one should be able to see your bunsies. Not when you're standing up straight, or bending down.
Leggings are meant to be worn with a skirt or dress to make sure your bum and legs are covered. And I don't mean an oversized sweatshirt or T-shirt, unless you're painting a room. To make things look nice, wear leggings with a tunic-style shirt, or a dress with boots.
3. Very Low-Rise Jeans
As long as they don't ride too low on your hips, low rise jeans can be quite flattering on certain body-types.
But before you buy these jeans, check yourself in a three-way mirror to see how much skin and/or underwear is showing around back. If your cotton briefs, pink thong or your, shall we say, coin slot, are in full view, these aren't the jeans for you.
Also, jeans with a super-low rise tend to create a situation known as "muffin top." When you're wearing jeans and your waist looks less like an hourglass and more like a blueberry muffin, your jeans are too low and too tight. Just go up a size and you'll be perfect.

And those are three things that I hope you never wear. Ever.
