What Not to Wear #8:
Your Child’s Clothes

Why Not?

I’m sure your child has great taste in clothes- inherited from you, of course! But raiding their closet for a holiday party could make for an uncomfortable evening. Styles for youth are drastically different than fashion for adults. Designers that play to the body shape of teens or young adults may not flatter the adult physique. Baby doll dresses are on the way out, so don’t try to pull this look off if it makes your body type look pregnant. That could start unwanted rumors around the office.

Try This Instead

What really intrigues you about your child’s clothes? Is it the sparkle of the necklace or the funky one shoulder? Take what you like about it and see if you can rework an outfit that you’ll feel good about and flatters you and your best assets.
