    We all have regrets. Seriously, don’t even get us started on our silver eyeliner phase or the leftover Thai food we ate this morning. However, right next to silk blouses, celebrating Cinco de Mayo, and Cadbury Crème Eggs, fashion missteps have found a special place in our regretful hearts.

The question remains whether the read
