What Fashion Crimes Are Women Guilty Of?

*Collaborative post.

We all hear about the unwritten “fashion rules” that we are supposed to all follow. Of course, you do not always need to play by the book when it comes to fashion. The whole purpose of fashion is to experiment and stay true to yourself. However, there are some fashion crimes that are definitely worth a sentence, and we are going to take a look at them in this blog post. So, let’s take a look at some of the things you definitely should not be doing when it comes to styling yourself and looking your best.

Wearing Clothing That Makes You Feel Uncomfortable

There is only one place to begin when it comes to the fashion crimes that women commit today, and this is by wearing clothing that makes you feel uncomfortable. This is a mistake that we see a lot of people make. They see an item of clothing in a magazine or they learn about the latest trend that everyone is wearing, and they feel like they have to go down the same route, even if they do not like it or it does not feel comfortable. This is a big mistake to make. After all, we are all individuals and fashion is unique to each and every one of us. If you do not like a particular item of clothing that is in fashion at the moment, you don’t have to wear it. Plus, you should always make sure you are comfortable with whatever you decide to wear.

Remember, if you are not comfortable, it is going to show. It will be written all over your face. So, make sure you choose clothing that you personally love and that makes you feel comfortable when you are wearing it. The grin that you have on your face will be the perfect accessory.

Purchasing From Poor Quality Brands

A lot of people make the mistake of purchasing their clothing from poor-quality brands. It is understandable to see why this is tempting. After all, these brands tend to be very cheap, so it can feel like it is a lot better for your bank balance. However, the truth is that you typically end up spending more overall because you only get a couple of wears out of the clothing in question. This is why it makes much more sense to consider premium brands like Prada, especially when it comes to your wardrobe staples. When you go down this route, you know you are going to have super stylish clothing that looks amazing and is made to last for years and years to come.

Wearing Clothing That Is a Size Too Small

Aside from the mistakes that we have mentioned so far, another fashion crime that we see a lot of women commit is wearing clothing that is a size too small. A lot of females do this because they want to be the same size in every store, and they don’t like having to go for a bigger size because it does not make them feel good about themselves. However, does a number on a tag really matter? Remember, clothing sizes differ wildly from retailer to retailer. In some stores, you may be a size 12. In others, you may be a size 14 or even a 16! This is because clothing brands use different measurements to determine their sizes, and so sizes really do not mean a thing. The best thing to do is make sure that the clothing fits you comfortably and looks great.

Not Being True to Yourself

Last but not least, as I mentioned earlier, fashion is very much a personal thing. It is unique to you. It is an extension of your personality. Because of this, you need to make sure that you stay true to yourself. Wear clothing that you love. A lot of people feel like they need to copy fashion trends and dress like everyone else. If this is what you like, there is nothing wrong with that. However, if you do not like the current trends, that’s fine as well. Fashion is all about what works for you and what makes you feel great.

Final Words on the Fashion Crimes Women Are Guilty Of

So there you have it: everything you need to know about some of the most common fashion crimes that women are guilty of today. We hope that this has helped you to get a better understanding of some of the rules you definitely should not break when it comes to the world of fashion. From purchasing from poor quality brands to wearing things that you do not feel comfortable in, if you can avoid the errors that we have mentioned above, you will certainly be able to improve your fashion game.


Fashion Criminal: Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter is famous for her unique talent and quirky stage presence, but she has been committing fashion crimes for a very long time, so she is the Fashion Criminal of the week on Fashion and Style Police.


This woman is a fashion disaster. Her quirky, eccentric style is not only plain wrong, it is all over the place. She wears some of the most ridiculous outfits I have ever seen. Her pieces and accessories are so weird, it is quite laughable. I get she doesn’t give two hoots on what people think about her fashion sense and she dresses for “herself” but I cannot get over the fact that she leaves her house dressed like a mismatched doll. Her disheveled look is an eye sore but then again her style icon is Lady Gaga, a previous fashion criminal, so what was I expecting?



No one can walk the streets looking like this, you will be mistaken for a crazy woman, except you are a Helena Bonham Carter. She once told the Daily Mail:

‘But fashion is all about having fun. I think fashion has been hijacked by the fashion industry creating rules on what one should wear and I feel like breaking the mould and seeing that the world won’t crumble. For me, fashion is all about fantasy and putting unlikely things together. That is what I love. I genuinely love dressing up.’

I agree with her. Fashion is all about having fun, but she has taken the idea of ‘fun’ to a completely different level. Real stylish women do not follow the dictates of the fashion industry, they create their own signature look and look fabulous. You can be quirky and fabulous.

Fashion Criminal: Miley Cyrus


Miley Cyrus has been committing the crimes of fashion for years now and her style is so BAD! Since she got rid of her good girl Hannah Montana image, she has been seen dressed in some very hideous outfits. This controversial pop star likes to wear as little clothes as possible, and most of the few pieces she wears do her no good. Miley Cyrus sees nothing wrong with the fact that she goes about hardly dressed.

“For me, nudity has never been something that I’ve ever tripped about. I don’t really see it the way everyone else sees it,” Miley tells VEVO. “I’d rather be naked than cry in front of people, because I don’t like showing weakness and that’s a lot of vulnerabilities.”

I believe her.



I think Miley Cyrus is a super talented pop star. I love some of her songs and I can see why she has a huge fan base. I also get the fact that she is trying to stand out from the pack and shed the ‘Disney Princess Good Girl’ image so bad, but there are more stylish ways to go about this act of rebellion, just look at the likes of Demi Lovato and Christina Aguilera. Miley needs a fashion stylist (I want to believe she doesn’t have one), her style is so messed up at the moment; it needs to be saved.


Miley Cyrus

Miley’s fashion style needs a lot of twerking, her accessories are all over the place, she doesn’t pair the right pieces together, she is just what I call a HOT MESS. This style is not bold, it is wrong on all counts.


I will love to see Miley Cyrus DECENTLY AND STYLISHLY dressed for a change. That will be nice. I want her style to remain edgy and full of personality but stylish and decent at the same time. That is not too much to ask now right?
