8 Clothing Combinations That Can Make Your Image Look Ridiculous

It seems that modern women aren’t restricted at all when it comes to fashionable looks. That’s why combinations such as shoes and bags made from different materials that were banned in the past are extremely popular now. But we can’t forget about common sense even if we’re trying to be trendy.

Bright Side follows fashion trends but understands that mixing certain items just isn’t the best idea.

8. Thigh-high boots with a below-the-knee skirt

Why is it a bad idea?

High shoes paired together with a long skirt make our legs look shorter. If you have barefoot shoes, you’ll look even shorter (even if your legs are actually long).

What should you wear instead?

  • Wear ankle boots or sneakers (if you like this style).
  • If you can’t help wearing thigh-high boots with a long skirt, it’s recommended to choose a high-waisted skirt.

7. Thigh-high boots with clothes covered in details

Why is it a bad idea?

Too many details and decor elements make your image look cheap.

What should you wear instead?

  • Thigh-high boots are a bright accent so there’s no need for any more details. Try to avoid wearing clothes with decorative elements.
  • Vivid skirts look great with simple shoes such as ankle boots.

6. Maxi skirts with elongated coats

Why is it a bad idea?

Maxi skirts and elongated coats paired together make our image look less proportional and elegant.

What should you wear instead?

  • Long skirts look great with cropped outerwear like a jacket or a fitted parka.
  • It’s recommended to wear long coats with jeans or pants.

5. A cocktail dress with boots (ankle boots)

Why is it a bad idea?

Cocktail and party dresses are suitable to wear during celebrations. Regular boots or ankle boots aren’t appropriate for such events.

What should you wear instead?

Elegant pumps are the best choice when it comes to festive events. If you wear heeled sandals, don’t forget that tights are banned in this case.

4. Heels with military clothes

Why is it a bad idea?

If you’re going to wear a short dress, it’ll look vulgar with heels. If you want to wear pants, you’ll simply look silly.

What should you wear instead?

Military clothes can be easily combined with sneakers. You may also try military boots or barefoot ankle boots.

3. A long cardigan with a fluffy midi skirt

Why is it a bad idea?

An elongated cardigan won’t allow you to highlight your body shape which is extremely important if you wear a midi skirt.

What should you wear instead?

  • Such skirts look really good with short cardigans — both items highlight a person’s waist.
  • A blazer combined with a belt is another great variant. It’ll complete your image in the most beautiful way.

2. Culottes with sneakers

Why is it a bad idea?

Culottes “steal” your height and make your long legs look short if you wear them with sneakers.

What should you wear instead?

  • Such pants look mind-blowing with high heels.
  • If you want to look taller, choose culottes and shoes that are light in color.

1. Thigh-high boots with shirt-dresses

Why is it a bad idea?

Such an image looks incomplete as if we’ve forgotten to put a skirt on.

What should you wear instead?

  • Slightly elongated shirt-dresses look way more interesting and elegant.
  • If you already have a short shirt-dress, try to combine it with leggings and boots or ankle boots.

This Woman Collected All of the Ridiculous Boys' Names She's Encountered on Twitter and They're Hilarious

image

There’s almost no way to talk about this subject without coming off as insensitive so I’m going to do my best to tread lightly, but some cultures and sub-cultures of those cultures are known for abiding by certain rules when it comes to naming their kids.

For example, if you’re Albanian, then you’ve probably got at least three male relatives named Arben, and every other female cousin, or aunt or niece is named Nora or a variation of that name. Now, when I say culture, I also don’t exclusively mean ethnicity either, I’m talking about how and where you were raised.

My wife, for example, went to school with two twins named Remy and Martin and later taught an adorable young kid named Yooneeq. A friend of mine once told me about a Dominican woman she met while on vacation calling to her son, his name was Gibe (pronounced Gi-bay). When she asked him what the name meant, the woman replied, “Gibe, you know, like the saint.”  My friend didn’t know a saint named Gibe, so the woman explained further, “Like the Holiday that’s named after him, the one right before Christmas?”

That’s right, she thought that Thanksgiving, which she pronounced “Sans-gibay,” was a celebration of a “San” or “Saint.”

image

As a kid who grew up with the name MOO-STAH-FAH, I understand Gibe’s pain that will inevitably come as a result of his unusual name. Since my parents immigrated to the U.S. and I went to elementary school in an area that was jam-packed with Brians and Pauls and Lucases and Michaels and Christophers and Matthews and Bretts and Daniels and Davids, it was usually these fair-skinned and freckled boys that would ridicule me for having a name that sounded more fit for a cartoon lion.

But like I said, every culture and sub-culture has their own naming norms and practices, and Twitter user @nrherzog’s post speaks to a subset of unusual names that deserve some careful attention for a number of reasons.

image

While swiping through Tinder, mostly in the states of Washington, Colorado, and a bit of Massachusetts, Norah decided to record all of the “best white boy names” that she came across in the notes application on her phone.

And like any good important statement made via Twitter, she screenshot those notes to share with everyone else on the internet to enjoy. In her journeys, she witnessed fascinating and majestic monikers like “Taniel” and “Quest.”

image

I’m a bit fascinated behind the meanings of these names. Like, there are some awful-sounding names that just set someone up for life, like Boris and — why not let’s go there — Adolph. Sure, the names have kind of been ruined (especially that second one), but they have meanings behind them.

Boris means fighter, Adolph is a “noble wolf.” But, unless you’ve got a really big affinity for the name, you’re probably not going to name your kid Boris, and I don’t even think it’s legal in most countries to name a child Adolph.

image

But I don’t know what they were trying to accomplish by naming their kid Quest. Did they have an affinity for one of the greatest OG hip-hop groups around? Because that’s the only answer I’ll ever accept. And I’ve heard of the name Dustin before, but did the nurse mess up when filling out the birth certificate and accidentally stick a child with  “Gustin”?

Well, Gustin could be short for “Augustin,” which makes sense. But I would much rather believe that the boy’s parents were obsessed with Urban Dictionary and came across this definition while discussing how they wished they would give birth to an overly-talkative kid.

image

Oh and if you thought her first page of names was bad, the second one contained a bunch of other winners, too. Like who names their son “Bligh”? Isn’t that an alternate spelling of “Blegh”? Do you know what you’ve done to that poor child when he goes to school? The endless ridicule?

image

And how is “Auston” pronounced, like “Gaston”? And Johnathon sounds like a Krasinski movie or a TV show marathon that quirky buddies came up with in an episode of a tired sitcom that’s just trying way too hard.

image

Forget Korder. Forget Ketch (which I’m convinced is short for Ketchup). Forget Bayne with a “y,” but we can take a second to talk about Thorin, as in, Thorin Oakenshield, the sexy dwarf from The Hobbit

image

People were scratching their heads over all the apparently brand new ways moms have come up with to name their kids familiar monikers like “Kevin” and “Caitlyn.” I don’t know why adding unnecessary h’s and ae’s makes them feel better their kids. I think a formal study needs to be conducted to get to the bottom of this.

In case you’re reading this and you have a name mentioned on the list above, don’t feel bad because, one, you’re reading this article and it’s written by a guy named Mustafa for crying out loud. You’re fine, trust me.

And two, because the 2017 Alberta, Canada list of popular baby names dropped online and some of the monikers on that little roundup had people howling. Can you believe someone named their kid “Zeppelin” and another thought it’d be cool to call their child, “V”? Like, just the letter, “V.”

image

Look, I like 99-cent cans of iced tea as much as the next guy, and Stranger Things is  a great, great show. That Dolphin game on Sega Genesis? Incredible! But I’m not going to name my kids Arizona, Eleven, or Echo because of it.

image

As much as I want to hate on the names in the list, however, people kept tweeting out absolute gems that just bring me so much delight. Cola? Denmark? Friggin XAX? What’s Xax? What is that? It sounds like a deviant art username or something.

image

OK but seriously, we’re all laughing at these kids’ names, but just remember, there’s going to be a child called Chrome walking the halls and everyone is going to think he was either named after a web browser or dope rims.

12 Ridiculous Manicures That Should Never Have Left The Salon

I understand the hype around manicures. Granted, it’s much cheaper to do your nails yourself at home, but there’s kind of a thrill to going to the salon every other week and picking a color, then sitting back and presenting your hands to get massaged and beautified. Not to mention the fact they do a much better job at cutting and filing than you ever will (nail-biters, hello). 

I can even get behind nail art. While most lacquer purists might consider nail designs tacky at best, I have to admit there were years when I bought special brushes, stamps, and matte finishes to try my hand at cute wearable miniature paintings I could show off at work. 

But there are some people who took the concept of nail art a little too far. From utilitarian designs that ensure you’ll never misplace your lipstick to sketching on your fingers (and adding hair!) so all your digits look like your face, here are 12 ridiculous manis that probably shouldn’t have left the salon.

1. THESE NAILS HAVE FINGERNAILS. 

What’s better, the artists at @nail_sunny say the inspiration for this look was Cardi B’s Met Gala look. Wait, what? How in the world are the two things related?

2. I’m just going to leave these here.

Because not even a thousand words of the purest poetry would approach an apt description of this image. 

Check out that index finger giving the middle finger the side eye.

3. Cheesus.

Call me trypophobic but I am NOT digging these nail holes. Don’t get me started on the way they’re shaped to basically catch on everything, or how that snag in the pinky looks like it could draw blood. 

But if I’m just yucking your yum, check out #cheesenails on Instagram and you won’t be disappointed.

4. Got me feeling wavy

If your vibe is rocking the wavy eyebrow trend of yore, you’ll love this manicure shape. Staring at this photo for too long might cause you, like me, to feel like these nails are shaped normally and it’s the rest of your screen is going crazy… which is reason number 14 I won’t be getting this mani.

5. Can it get any cornier than this?

I’m pretty positive I support corn as much as any other American. I’ll eat it on the cob, in popcorn, or tortillas—even the high fructose stuff in sodas doesn’t bug me too much. But these nails managed to get under my skin. The husks look astoundingly inconvenient for daily hand activities (washing, wiping)— also what is going on with that butter?

6. Don’t go anywhere without it

I’ll disclaim here that @nail_sunny, the insane Russian salon responsible for the nails with nails in #1 is my unrivaled favorite when it comes to absolutely insane and (in my opinion) unwearable manicures. So much so that they’ll definitely appear in this list again. If you’re the type of person who forgets your lipstick every time you go out, and the idea of throwing it in your purse is just *too passé*, you can always work it into your manicure like this girl did.

7. Pen pals

Now this is the kind of functional bedazzled mani situation I can get behind. It’s all fun and games when your colleagues need something to write with and you sarcastically offer up your nails. But… imagine typing with these things??

8. We get it, you love plants

Like every other millennial and their mom, I do love plants. And though I might not treat them as stand-ins for children, I do enjoy them in varying shapes and sizes at home and at the workplace. But these 3D succulents take the hype a bit far in my humble o.

9. The big day

You picked the perfect spouse and the best venue with most amazing vendors, and you can’t wait to publicly profess your love in front of everyone who RSVPed. So naturally, you’ll get miniature replicas of yourself and your beau to stick on your hand and be extra-meta. Like, the engagement ring and wedding band don’t accessorize enough? I don’t know, I’ll probably not be adding this to my Pinterest board.

 10. TEETH

For a minute, I thought wearing your own self and your groom on your fingers was meta, but these teeth are making me second guess everything. What’s next, eyeballs in your mouth? Noses on your toes? This mani’s got me feeling some kind of unpleasant existential way.

11. Don’t blow it

These nails, on the other hand (I know, I’m hilarious), I can get behind. Not like, I’ll be taking a printout on my next manicure, but if someone showed up to my birthday party with this do and I got to blow out their nails, well, let’s just say I’d have a good laugh and remember that birthday for, probably, ever.

12. Free the nipple

Last but not least, another @nail_sunny creation, this time combining two questionable trends: the bubble nail (example below)

and sticking boob imagery on everything. The latter I am unopposed to, but the former really does raise a lot of questions (How do they do it? Looks like just 100 coats of polish to me…). When fused together, this manicure, although inspired, is a hard NO for me.

So next time the nail technician doesn’t give you the perfect mani, just think of these.
