We’ve all got them, things about fashion, clothes, our own personal style or shopping habits that drive us insane. It can be anything from the way certain styles of clothes fit to what colours are on trend for the season. No matter how much you love fashion or style, there’s always that one thing that completely irritates you about it.
For someone who aspires to have killer personal style it maybe the frustration of not knowing how to mix and match clothes. For those that already have their signature look on lock, it could be something as simple as ‘Birkenstocks are back!’ Or the cut of a particular brand’s pair of jeans.
As a personal stylist I’m always checking the fit of my client’s clothes, whether they be the ones they own or ones they’re thinking of buying. As you’d imagine I have to walk the walk as well as talk the talk, so when it comes to my own clothes the fit is paramount. But I often find myself getting frustrated with many of the high street’s ill-fitting clothes. They’re not all bad but because I’m so thorough over it, I tend to find that without considering alterations, a perfect fit is just unachievable.
In heels & nail polish I mentioned a pet peeve that really makes me cringe. That’s chipped/scratched off nail polish. I mean I get nail polish sometimes chips a little. But when it’s been half scratched off or just left to decay and you have an irregular camouflage-like pattern of old nail polish and nail. It really just makes me feel weird. It also looks super scruffy, if you want an instant way to undo any hard work you’ve put into your personal style, it’s do this!
I’d really love to hear what’s your personal style pet peeve?
