what not to wear

Yesterday I had a funny conversation with my friend Karima "Reems" online ....

Reems: this guy at my job is wearing a red shirt with beige pants
umm
hello
TARGET
u look like u work at TARGET

Jonesy: LOL
yooo no joke
one day i wore a blue shirt and a khaki skirt
and then i got to work
and i was like omg

Karima: LMAO
Jonesy: so i wore a sweater ALL day!
Karima: stop
Jonesy: it looked cute at home
lol
i went into the bathroom
and i looked in the mirror and said oh em gee

Reems: one time i was in bed bath and beyond and a guy was wearing the color uniforms
Jonesy: LOL and u asked for help?
Reems: yea

and he was like ummm

Jonesy: im holding in my laughter
Reems: and i was like ohh
Jonesy: LOL
i have tears
Reems: well why u got the uniform on man!
lol
Jonesy: i cant

This conversation had me thinking how easily someone could accidently dress like a store employee and not even realize it. How many men have you seen at a party with black pants, a white buttoned down shirt (sometimes a vest) and black tie, and wondered if they were the waiter? One of the most embarrasing things that can happen is accidently asking someone for help in a store to find out that they are just a customer like you. We've all thought this in our heads while shopping "Does she work here?" or have said "Excuse me, do you work here?"when we weren't sure.

Make no mistake, you should avoid the following color combinations . . .


I know what you are thinking, I'd never wear this outfit. Okay maybe you wouldn't wear this exact outfit above, but its quite easy to take these two colors like I did, and not even realize that you became an honorary Best Buy employee. I bought this really cute royal blue shirt from H&M and paired it with a cute skirt not even realizing how the two colors could instantly remind someone of Best Buy. Luckily i wasn't wearing yellow anywhere in that day.




I've actually seem this combo out a lot believe it or not. Women all the time buy camel colored pants and pair it with a red top, the trick is to go with a different red so its not as noticiable. Whatever you do, should you decide to wear this combo, make sure you avoid entering a target or don't be shocked when someone asks for help.
