The etiquette for wearing alligator or crocodile belts is as follows: They must be huge; they must simply droop along the waist — don’t even worry about them cinching anything in — and they must not, under any circumstances, match the rest of your outfit.
Given that they are generally unflattering, these belts aren’t going to make you look any younger. Hey, it’s not like this belt really added anything to Kim Kardashian’s look in this picture, so we doubt it will do us any favors. If you’re really set on wearing them, give some thought to balancing the outfit with more muted pieces.
Pigtails as an Adult
We don't know who needs to hear this, but please do not wear pigtails if you are over the age of, let's say... nine. Maybe if you want to dress up as a cheerleader or as a child for Halloween, then we can let this one slide, but that's pretty much it.
The reason this hairstyle ages you is because it is literally a child's hairstyle, so any adult wearing them looks like they are trying to look like a child. This only emphasizes how much you are, in fact, not a child, but a fully grown adult who hasn't received the memo on being all grown up.
Animal Hats With Paws
They may keep you warm. They may feel nice. They may remind you of that trip to the zoo when you were a kid and didn't have any rent to pay. However, those animal hats that had the long paws drooping down the sides are one of the many early 2010 trends that need to remain dead and buried.
They might have looked cute when you were 14 (they didn't), but anyone who wears them today looks like they are trying too hard to be quirky. It's a throwback to over a decade ago, and it just shows your inability to let go of your 14 years old-self concept of cool.
Low-rise jeans were all the rage in the 90s and early 2000s, and that's ideally where they should stay. They aren't very flattering on most body types, and they also make you look like you're cosplaying as Paris Hilton from 2002. And we all know that Paris has had much (much) better days since then.
It's just an old trend that will only make you look older — not to mention that many tops are cropped nowadays, so an extra-short top paired with extra-low jeans will create an illusion of an abnormally long torso and leave a lot on display.
Acid-washed denim makes a comeback every decade or so, so it's understandable that people try to make it work. Or just keep them in their closets for the next time they are in fashion again. It's not a bad look in and of itself; it's just pretty outdated and has been brought out of retirement one too many times.
Really, the only time wearing acid-washed denim works nowadays is for an 80s-themed throwback party. Aside from that, they make you look like you're clinging onto trends of yesteryear. Our advice is to keep one pair, and one pair only, and put it in the costume box until the next comeback.
