♡ Everyone has their typical every day fashion problems and I’m going to share a few of mine. I’m neither short nor tall, I guess I’m what society would call ‘skinny’ but I don’t necessarily take that as a complement. I’m happy with my size, shape and what not, but there’s just a few things that annoy me when I’m getting ready in the mornings and just fashion in general.
White Clothing Items
Since Spring is now here, I want to wear brighter colours. One of them being that I want to buy White jeans, they just look a whole lot more Spring/Summery. I just cannot trust myself with wearing anything White, I’m so messy. I’ve never owned White trainers purely for this reason, Fifty odd pounds for me to accidently step in dog poo or fall into a muddy puddle because I am SO CLUMSY.
No matter what anyone says, as amazing as ripped jeans are, it is near impossible to put them on without your whole foot going through them and making them even more ripped.
Light Coloured Jeans
While we’re on the subject of jeans, the paranoia when wearing light coloured jeans at that time of the month is unreal. Since I’m not really a fan of wearing dark coloured jeans, I always have this problem.
Too much leg or too much cleavage?
I’m always so cautious about this. There’s so much on social media of girls knocking each other down for having too much skin out. It literally makes me paranoid when I’m out shopping if I see a really nice top and it’s too low cut or you turn it around and the back is open. Little things like that just make me think ‘no you couldn’t wear that, it looks too revealing’. As much as I love wearing shorts and stuff, especially in the summer, I’m never really comfortable because of stereotypes. How sad.
Size 6/8 in Seasonal Sales
I never find anything in my size throughout sale periods. In all my favourite shops New Look, H&M etc, I’m pretty sure that even from the day the sales begin they have no smaller sizes to accommodate us small people, so there we are, having to pay full price while everyone saves money. Can I just point out also, whenever I do somehow manage to find something in an 8, there is always a make-up stain or something on it. Please, have some consideration to the girls who try this stuff on after and actually want to buy it.
For me, dark colours and pale skin is a no. It just makes me look 96x more pale than I already am. I love Burgundy’s and all, but they just don’t suit me.. or maybe I just need a little more confidence to wear them!
Size 7 Clothing
I’m at that awkward size where I’m not a 6 and I’m not an 8. Come on UK, where’s the size 7 clothes at??? Size 8 jeans go baggy after a while & size 6 jeans feel too tight around my bum. Size 8 tops make my flat chest look even flatter because they’re normally so baggy but size 6 are a little too skin clingy. The struggle. Though I’m loving Stradivarius at the moment.
Okay, you’re probably thinking what?? You can’t even see underwear when you have clothes on so why is it even a problem? So I wear a lot of HW skinny jeans & it is one of my biggest pet peeves when you can see your knicker line, like a little bump bit wrapped around my bum, where it rolls up. Do you know what I mean? This is why I’m glad brazillian knickers are a thing, they’re not as uncomfortable as thongs, but they aren’t full on briefs!
These are my biggest fashion problems, tweet me yours
