Sigh. For the longest time, I've wanted a pair of leather pants so badly, I can hardly stand it. They're sexy. They're out of my comfort zone. And they really do look amazing -- something I was reminded of after viewing this photo of Keri Russell wearing them.
OMG. Does she look incredible or what? (And she's had two babies!)
But as much as I'd love to break down and buy a pair of leather pants and get my Keri Russell look on, it's never going to happen. Because Keri Russell has a bangin' bod and can totally pull off leather pants -- and I can't. (I'm not jealous. Ok, yes I am.)
I'm not even going to bother trying to kid myself -- the truth is my body just isn't firm enough to wear leather pants without any bulges, lumps, or bumps. And I'm ok with it, I guess. At some point, you just have to accept that there are certain clothes that only look good if you are the right shape and size for them, and unfortunately, leather tops the list of no-nos for my 35-year-old somewhat saggy figure.
But the do-not-wear list isn't limited to leather. Take a look at the photos below to see six other things we really shouldn't wear unless we have the body to go along with them.
What clothes have you sworn off because of your body type?

Skinny jeans are called skinny jeans for a reason, which is kind of a bummer.
