Do you wanna be stylish or not?

1. Trying to wear pants as a shirt.

It's true — pants have two fabric tubes that your arms can fit inside. But they're meant for your legs. And you simply look more polished and put together when pants are on your legs and not your arms.

2. Wearing a shoe as a hat.

Shoes are a fun accessory but it's important to remember that they're meant to be worn on your feet. Maybe you can balance a shoe on your head. And if you can, good for you. But you're just making things harder for yourself when there are actually hats designed specifically to fit and stay on your head. You don't need to use a shoe.

3. Stuffing your bra full of hamsters.

This may seem like a great idea, but all those hamsters are doing is just creating an uneven, lumpy look at your bust line, especially when they really start to get restless.

4. Covering your sweaters in mayonnaise.

You may think you're being chic and edgy when you spread mayo on your cardigan, but in reality, you just look like someone covered in mayo. And everyone is worried about you.

6. Finding a good tailor and then getting right in that tailor's face and screaming, "Stay out of my life, you moron!"

Tailors can help make your clothes fit better and look more flattering. Screaming right in your tailor's face can really hurt your relationship. Try not to do that.

7. Hooking bananas into each one of your belt loops.

This DOES look cool, but the bananas are going to get bruised when you walk around. And if you forget about the ones in the back when you sit down, you'll have smashed banana all over your pants and that's bad.

8. Using a dead fish as a clutch.

This is something you will definitely regret. Even if the smell doesn't bother you, fishing your lipstick and keys out of its little fish mouth is no picnic.

9. Wearing horizontal stripes with large, inexplicable blood stains.

If you have any blood-stained clothing that could implicate you in a crime, the last thing you should do is wear it out, no matter how cute it is.

You need sturdy shoes that won't fall apart immediately and get sugar all over your feet.

11. Accessorizing with angry bees.

As cool as the whole "mistress of the bees" look is this season, those bees can and will sting you. It's best to just skip this one.
