Rule #3:Never wear anything that takes alot of effort to be functional (or makes you walk stupid).
At our clothing exchange this weekend, a friend reminded me of the above concept. She had heard a similar guideline expressed by a celebrity regarding what is worn on the red carpet:
If you have to tug at it constantly, don’t wear it.
The most common offender I see is the strapless dress. Second is the mini. What ruins functional elegance for the people in your world?
