Fashion rule 5: “Cleavage or legs, never both”

too much skin

Showing a bit of leg or little cleavage is fine. But you’d better not show both at the same time. Don’t show too much skin. In summer we’re tempted to wear tank tops, strapless tops with shorts or mini-skirts. And even worse a strapless or low-cut (at the point where even I’m starting to feel dizzy) mini dress. For men, it’s a tank top with shorts. Just know that it may look trashy: too much cleavage and too much leg.

“There is a real vulgarity in the way women dress at the moment. They show off too much and try too hard. They don’t understand where the line is between sexy and vulgar. I know where that line is.” – Roberto Cavalli, Italian fashion designer

Fashion rule 5: “Cleavage or legs, never both”

Een beetje been of borst tonen is ok. Maar weet dat beiden tegelijk ‘blootstellen’ beter te vermijden is. Toon niet te veel bloot. In de zomer is het verleidelijk om tank tops of strapless tops te dragen, gecombineerd met een mini-rokje of shorts. Of nog erger, een strapless of diep gedecolleteerd (waar zelfs ik duizelig van word) mini kleedje. Voor mannen is dit het ‘marcelleke’ met shorts. Het kan een verkeerde ‘goedkope’ indruk geven: te veel borst én te veel been.
