Giovana Lourenço is a UK-based style blogger who took to TikTok to share “10 Things Elegant Ladies Never Wear.”

“Bra showing off,” she wrote over an image of Gigi Hadid wearing a suit with an exposed brassiere.

“Low Quality Fabrics,” she added over an image of what appeared to be fast fashion.

She advised against wearing “tacky sunglasses” such as neon-colored eyewear.

She urged women to take care of their wardrobe, citing “wrinkly clothes” as a fashion fail.

She nixed “colorful nail art,” showing an image of an electric blue French manicure.

She suggested keeping swimwear simple, deeming “trendy bikini straps” to be inelegant.

She also disapproved of “ultra high heels,” such as the Versace platform pumps.

She chose to keep it neat and clean by rejecting “distressed denim.”

Lourenço did not overlook hair. She said “poorly groomed hair” is something elegant ladies never sport.

Finally, she cited a common style sin — “chipped nails.”

“10 things that look cheap,” she added in the caption.
