ELLE Canada editors weigh in on summer's worst style offenses

By: Alannah O'Neill “I hate when people go overboard with fake tans. Splotchy, orange tans are just so wrong and tacky! It reminds me of Snooki-- unless you’re trying out for Jersey Shore, stay away from it!” -Jennifer Weatherhead, Web Editor “I hate when people wear Uggs with shorts or miniskirts in hot weather!” -Mary Dickie, Production Editor -“A face full of foundation. It’s summer-—relax! Leave the heavy makeup for fall.” -Sarah Dolphin, Acting Beauty and Health Editor “I hate the transparent plastic brassiere straps that girls wear with tank tops. Go for a strapless bra or tank with built in support. [Plastic bra straps] are the equivalent to transparent lucite high heels, soo tacky!” -Beatriz Juarez, Art Director “I hate it when people wear coloured underwear under white or linen clothing. Nude unmentionables are the only way to go.” -Ben MacDonald, Associate Art Director “There’s nothing worse than an exposed thong— whale tales are not okay!” -Alannah O’Neill, Associate Editor “I know I’ll probably get a lot of feedback on this, but I absolutely hate a French manicure on toes. Reason being: You have to grow the nail more than usual so the white stands out more. Imagine doing that on your toes. Honestly, not a good look.” -Lara Ceroni, Senior Web Editor “Short shorts paired with midriff-baring tops. Separately, they make for cute and summery outfits but paired together could make for a silly and unintended fashion statement. So take your pick!” -Ava Bacari, Editorial Intern
