We love us some fashion. The ability to express self through style is just one of life's few luxuries for which we're most thankful for.

But often times, some folks take this creativity a tad too far leading to the ultimate fashion faux pas. As we march ahead in the year, here are a few of such fashion faux pas moments we want left behind in 2014.

 

  1. Excessive make-up: 2014 saw the reign of quite a few beauty trends - ombre lips and contouring to name a few. While we're all for great make-up, we have to admit there's something ultimately endearing about a fresh-faced beauty. So ladies, while we urge you to have a ball wit make-up, still tone it down a notch. Enough of the over-contoured face and ruby-red lips.
  2. Bulky weaves: There's just something about bulky weaves that spells - tacky and errr lady of easy virtue. Now we love our weaves just as much as the next person but when there's about 6 bundles worth of waist-length weave on one head then it's definitely time to tone things down.
  3. Camel toes: Quite a few Nigerian celebrities were guilty of this last year and while we'll be kind enough not to mention names we won't mince words in saying - camel toes are a NO-NO. Keep things classy ladies.
  4. Waist trainers: We hear your gasp at this ladies, but its a new year. If you want a banging body, then work for it. Out with the pretence this year. Moreover, waist trainers aren't exactly the healthiest things in the world as they hold vital organs in place for hours on end and prevent proper circulation. Now what other incentive do you need to give them up and work for a better body instead.
