Throw them away: 5 outdated items that used to be a sign of wealth
There are exquisite products that not so long ago were desirable and instantly disappeared from store shelves. Today, they have no value. What happened? Stylish and budget-friendly alternatives have appeared on the market. I'm talking about mass-market brands like Zara, H&M, Mango, and the like. They changed the idea of what trendy clothes should look like and won the favor of fashionistas all over the world.
So, read the OBOZ.UA article to find out what clothes you should give up once and for all if you don't want to make others laugh with your pursuit of "luxury".
1. Bubble-style fur coat
This item was a favorite of movie legends Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, Queen Elizabeth II and other respected people. As a rule, the bubble-style coat was made of natural fur, which caused millions of animals to suffer around the world.
Nowadays, wearing this garment is considered a bad manners. The fashion industry stands for environmental friendliness and animal protection, and has begun to offer women faux fur products. So, we advise you to pay attention to bright and classic Teddy fur coats, with long pile, animal print or boucle.
2. Addiction to logos
Not so long ago, things with huge logos were in great demand. It was believed that they were a "loud" way to declare your financial capabilities. "Look, I have a leather jacket from Louis Vuitton". The situation when a person flaunts a fake product is even worse... Nowadays, laconic designs in the style of "quiet luxury" or Old Money are in fashion: the fewer prints (and even more colorful ones!) and decor, the better.
3. Fitted jacket
Even if you put together a seemingly successful outfit, a fitted jacket or blazer will spoil it. Forget about these cuts and replace them with more relevant ones: straight or oversized. They not only look stylish but also correctly balance the silhouette. You will be a winner!
4. Coat (sheepskin coat)
The sheepskin coat is on this list for two reasons. The first is that you can easily make a mistake and buy an outdated model. The second is impracticality. It's hot in the fall and spring and cold in the winter. So, you can still wear it for short photoshoots or a short run from the car to the building. However, for walks outside, rely on warm down jackets, fur coats with long synthetic pile, or duffle coats that will keep you comfortable even in the bitter cold.
5. Fur hat
In Soviet times, only wealthy people wore massive hats made of natural fur (the so-called molded hats). Today, this trend is gradually coming back into fashion but only among celebrities who like to shock the audience with their antics. If you want to look really stylish, wear beanies, hoods or small panamas made of eco-fur in winter.
