When it comes to fashion faux pas, fashion designer Zac Posen had some great insights to share with us.

In the summertime in New York City, Zac admitted that he cringes when he sees women wearing below-the-knee fitted dresses with flip flops. “Your toes are that much closer to the pavement, dirt and gutters!” he laughed. “It always looks strange with the silhouette,” he added.

Another common faux pas: women who can’t comfortably walk in their shoes or women who too-closely follow major trends. “Create your own style. Become your own style icon,” he urged.
