Fashion Mistakes You May Be Making and How to Fix Them
You always want to look your best. You really do. But if you don’t know what you are doing wrong, how can you fix it? Here are six of the biggest fashion faux pas that you may be guilty of. You will also find the easy fixes for all of them so that you can be the sleek and stylish fashionista you have always wanted to be.
Sporting Athletic Shoes Everywhere
Let’s start from the ground up. Gym shoes are made with one purpose: to wear when you workout. If you are wearing them to the grocery store or out on the town, you need to stop. Now. There are plenty of ways to get the comfort you crave without sacrificing your style, such as non-athletic, slimmer-profiled sneakers, or even trendy flats. Hey, even flip-flops are better than cross trainers.
Wearing the Wrong Jeans
Even if you are a size four, light-colored jeans that go up to your bellybutton and hug your ankles do not look good. Period. They emphasize all the wrong places and make you look bigger than you are, and who wants that? On the contrary, a dark pair of jeans that have a mid-rise waist and a slight boot leg will make you look thinner and feel sexier. Now, that doesn’t mean every pair you try on with these specifications will look good. Every brand and style fits a little different; so don’t be afraid to try on 10 pairs (or more!) to find the perfect one.
Settling for Solids
Solid colors definitely have their place, but they should not be worn every day. They don’t show your personality and they are just plain boring. Look for a patterned blouse and pair it with a fitted blazer and a dark-wash jean and you have a fashionable outfit with flair.
