oh, yes, peep-toes.
my toes are more or less the same length so no toe would peep.

Shift dresses, if they fit round my hips you can look in one arm hole and out the other, enjoying the view of my rather small norks on the way.

Also frills, bows and twiddly bits. I have reasonably long legs and a short body. I just don't have enough top half to decorate, they look over powering and silly.

Tailored jackets

Startail Wed 17-Apr-13 22:20:17

Shirts with breast pockets look ridiculous, the pockets sit on my waist.

freddiefrog Wed 17-Apr-13 22:28:23

Dresses or skirts of any kind apart from maxi dresses in the summer. I look a dick in them

OneLittleLady Wed 17-Apr-13 22:31:47

Cropped trousers of any kind

Black patent pumps. They just look weird on my feet.

santamarianovella Wed 17-Apr-13 22:45:35

maxi skirts

MrsApplepants Wed 17-Apr-13 22:50:07

Suit jackets instantly turn me into a frump.

Drop waist dresses, they make me look really boxy, even though I have a small waist and bigger hips.

Polo necks.
Shirts with collars. Too masculine.
Shirt dresses- agree with the sack of spuds comment.

Generally dresses and skirts are a problem because i like them but don't know what shoes to wear and struggle with heels

Anything that can't be adequately layered with other clothes for effective temperature control.

Very bright colours.

Skinny jeans look awful on me (even when I'm at my thinnest) as do any tops which are fussy or too high cut around the neckline. Cowl necks look like my head is coming out of a giant vagina, though I personally think they look like that on everyone.

SoYoFromKokomo Thu 18-Apr-13 03:29:35

Jumper dresses and wrap dresses, they just sit on bulgy tummy & make people look at me thinking 'fat or pregnant?'

TheRealFellatio Thu 18-Apr-13 03:50:26

I look shit in any kind of masculine tailoring.

short skirts
dropped waists
baggy, wide cut things with no definition
pretty much all trousers except jeans
most high-legged boots (always too narrow for my calves)
turtle necks (although I am not convinced they flatter anyone so it's no great loss)

TheRealFellatio Thu 18-Apr-13 03:51:04

Oh and beige or pale peach or pale blue. I look dead.

HazleNutt Thu 18-Apr-13 07:00:46

skinny cropped trousers - my legs are normally not that bad, but those make me look like I have 2 chubby sausages instead of legs.
Shirts from normal shops, why the heck are they all cut for B-cups?
boxy cropped jackets make me look, unsurprisingly, boxy and cropped.

noddyholder Thu 18-Apr-13 07:05:51

Racer back vests
Belted coats/dresses another sack of potatoes here
T shirts with high round neck look dumpy
I think biker jackets are loose womany too
Hair 'styles'
Masculine anything feels wrong

OneLittleLady Thu 18-Apr-13 07:08:59

Yellow. I can't wear anything that's yellow. No matter what the shade, it looks terrible on me and I look like I haven't slept in a week.

AnyFucker Thu 18-Apr-13 07:25:44

Anything above the knee (legs too skinny)

Ankle boots (ditto)

Anything low cut (crepey chest)

Anything sleeveless (wobbly upper arms even though they are skinny)

SteppingOnLego Thu 18-Apr-13 07:32:48

Rollnecks or even high crew necks (short neck and have norks)
Skirt/dress above knee without tights
Ankle strap shoes
Empire line
Anything black (makes me look half dead)

rubyflipper Thu 18-Apr-13 07:40:34

Suit jackets: I look like a prison officer
Wrap dresses: I look like a barrel in a dress

AmberNectarine Thu 18-Apr-13 07:59:04

Shorts. Every year I try. I think I do it just to keep my self-esteem in check.

Turquoiseblue Thu 18-Apr-13 08:08:10
