Allie Wentworth & Tim Gunn Dish on the Biggest Fashion Blunders for Spring 2013 — or ANYTIME!!

The Daily Shot with Allie Wentworth and Tim Gunn is amazing. I love the chemistry. But I love that Allie got Tim to address fashion No-No’s. REALLY!!
The key blunders are ways to add 5 pounds (or more) to your body. No one wants to look 5-10 pounds heavier. No one wants to look older either. Some of these styles or trends will do just that and one will make you look “matronly” and fatter. NO BUENO chiquitas!!
Now if I told you all this, you might kick me to the curb and say I am full of something unprintable. But when fashion maestro, Tim Gunn says it, you know it’s true.

1) capri pants:
it’s about your body type. Slim and tall yes– this might really be you. Slim and short- maybe not so much!

2) capri pants with cargo pockets:
I think Tim’s photo says it all. (Are you kidding me? Do you really need those pockets? That’s what a handbag is for!)

3) floral prints:
It’s about proportion and size both in the print and your own dress size. And for some like petite women, it might have them looking like a Little House on the Prairie child.

4) baggy clothing:
baggy clothing hides your body. Body-skimming silhouettes and helpers like shapewear make a huge difference and make you look slim and sleek.

5) skirts mid-calf or lower:
I tried this one once upon a time– gave it up fast. This doesn’t work on anyone. Suggestion, below the knee but don’t go down so far that you look like Mary Poppins.

6) black (REALLY!)
Again it’s about silhouette and what the style is. Black could make you look like sleek and sexy or make you look like a box of charcoal.
