A fashion faux pas is simply fashion gaffes/mistakes.

1- EXCESS/POORLY DONE MAKEUP
It is makeup for a reason, it is supposed to give you that pop. Not destroy what you had before. Do not be quick to use every makeup item on your face- especially when you do not even know how to use them.

2- VISIBLE PANTY LINES
Showing panty lines is a no no for any grown woman. Avoid wearing underwears that are visible in your pants, body-con dresses, skirts...etc. Get seamless and nude underwears for such dresses.

3- UNCOMFORTABLE HEELS
Heels are fashionable only when you can strut in them. Anything less and you can save us the embarrassment of watching you walk like a penguin. There are kitten heels, stick to them.

4- REVEALING TOO MUCH SKIN AT ONCE
The golden rule to this is, if the upper bit is showing- cover the lower bit and vice versa. Leave somethings to our imagination

5- OVER ACCESSORIZING
Accessories are meant to compliment our outfits, but they shouldn't be overdone- lest we move about looking like a mobile accessories store. I couldn't even find a woman to go with this, but understanding lo matter...lol



6- WEARING INAPPROPRIATE DRESSES
This is a 2-in-1 problem
i. Wearing the wrong dress for a right occasion (i.e) overdressing or underdressing. Maybe you didn't get the memo. We should all have that LBD (little black dress). It helps when you do not know what to wear.

ii. Wearing the wrong dress for our body type. You want to hide your slim body, flabby arms, tummy...etc OR maybe you just think they are trendier. Don't wear too big clothes or too tight clothes. They come off awful and age inappropriate most times.

Fixing the wrong kinds of weaves. If you have a large or prominent forehead, aka agbari Ojukwu, aka agboto, kindly stick to fringes and leave all back gel style for those with smaller foreheads.

If you're charcoal black in complexion, stay away from weaves with shouting colours because you'll look like an ancestral idol. I was walking my pet 'Chiwawa' when we encountered a very dark complexioned lady wearing a wig that was so dazzling red, it was almost painful to the eyes. If you know Chihuahuas, you'll know that they can be nasty little buggers. What they lack in size, they more than makeup in noise making. My Chiwawa was so startled by the appearance of this lady that he kept barking even after we lost sight of her. The sun reflecting on that wig almost bruised my corneas.

Exposing your bra strap when wearing spaghetti, off shoulder or tank tops undecided

This thing iritates me so much. It looks tacky like what babes at mushin or kparaga sellers would wear.

Funny enough, barely 4 years back it was a in vogue.

If you don't have perky boobs, a strapless bra, cant tape your boobs or aren't confident enough to go without a bra please we don't want to see the bra strap in strappless clothes.

I would never understand why this happens. Neither would I understand how they are comfortable in such.

More Fashion faux pas women make from @MANNABBQGRILLS

Wearing a bra that doesn’t give the right amount of lift and support

Learn to change your bras as much as possible ladies,
do not say you don't want to spend money on something that no one else sees!


Another one,

You see lovely clothes paraded by fabulous models and you want to look like them.
The reality is...  
These clothes are designed for a very specific body type that very few women possess.
The clothes aren't going to turn you into a model or a celebrity look-alike!

Wearing coloured bra under a white shirt/ wearing lace outfits that expose underwear

Wearing clothes that are too short to the wrong occasion and then not being able to sit properly without looking uncomfortable

Nails that are like claws. I saw a lady giving an interview on the television about something serious and I couldnt understand why she would be gesticulating everywhere with pink 2-inch nails and still think its normal

Prioritising fashion over being warm! And then not being able to concentrate when somebody is talking because youre trying not to shiver (I am guilty of this)

Dressed in a comfy gym cloths in a dinner party, peeky underwear, clashing colours of all nature, brand logo over loaded, wearing fake hairs that not only look like sponge but fancy crocs, worst is how they sit down opening their legs wide open for everyone to see the colour of their tacky pant.
