There’s a book out called Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady written by Derek Blasberg. Blasberg is an expert in fashion being that he is the Senior Fashion News and Special Projects Editor for V and VMAN magazines.
In this book, he advices how a woman can “turn from trashy into classy” while also keeping it humorous.
1. Don’t Be a Label Whore:
This is actually a pretty cool necklace…
Just because you wear head to toe Louis Vuitton won’t make you look rich. “…Just because you paid a lot of money doesn’t mean you look good,” Blasberg claims. I couldn’t have said it better. It doesn’t hurt to have Louis Vuitton luggage wear but just don’t lug it around to everywhere you go.
2. Showing Too Much Skin
Revealing top AND a mini skirt – too much skin, girl!
If you’re going skin, make sure you’re going to cover SOME parts of your body – or else you’re going to end up looking trashy (and that is the nicer version of saying it). Blasberg believes the current trend in fashion is “the idea of proportions which is to pick one part of your body that you’re gonna bare, then remember to cover up everything else.” So, basically, if you’re going to show your bosoms then make sure you cover your bottom.
3. You Should Always Wear Underwear
You should always wear underwear in public no matter what. You don’t ever want to be put in a situation where you could be called the “firecrotch.”
4. Buying Knockoffs
Interesting take. It actually looks pretty cool.
Okay this is where I have to differ! I love buying knockoff shoes and apparently Blasberg doesn’t think it is a fashion do. But, I do agree with him that you should not buy knockoffs that are so blatantly fake where even your grandma could tell it’s not legit.
5. Emailing Naughty Photos
Oh Miley! At least you’re still covered up, right…?
Don’t be a Miley Cyrus or Vanessa Hudgens culprit. You may never know where that email goes! Easy as that.
Do you think these guidelines are good? Do you follow any of them?
