When it comes to choosing a fashion style, there is no right or wrong. You can choose a chic or punk look, modern or casual. The only problem is looking cheap and it has nothing to do with the price of your clothes. Oftentimes, it’s little things that keep you from becoming a fashionista.
It has compiled a list of things to watch out for.
1. Excessive glitter
As a general rule, rhinestone designs require a suitable occasion. Sportswear and everyday wear with lots of fake jewelry will have any fashion connoisseur flinching.
Dazzle with your personality instead of your clothes.
2. Knockoff brands
Manufacturers may call them “replicas”, but that does not make them original. Low-quality items from discount stores have nothing to do with world-renowned fashion designers.
What to do: A well-made item from a fast-fashion store will allow you to dress your own style without costing you an arm and a leg.
3. Clashing prints
Polka dots + stripes = one of many unfortunate combinations. Floral, geometric and other eye-catching prints should stand alone.
How to: Mix a print with something similar or solid colors for a winning combination.
4. White pumps
Let’s tell you a little secret: there is a color discrimination right now. White shoes, unless they are sneakers or athletic shoes, have fallen out of favor. Even brides go for different colors, and it is difficult to wear white shoes in everyday life.
The best option for any occasion is nude shoes. They will fit perfectly, no matter what color prevails in your wardrobe. They will also elevate your look to a new level of elegance.
5. Buy big or don’t buy
Some things are meant to be expensive and they don’t have a cheaper version. Most of the time, this applies to fabrics. The general rule of thumb here is that if you can’t afford a quality item, it’s best not to buy it at all. Take lace, for example. Inexpensive lace items start to show signs of wear very quickly and will reflect the condition of their owner.
Can’t live without lace? Less is more. Let it be a part of your wardrobe but as little inserts or add-ons.
6. Odd colors
The bright neon colors are ideal for a disco or Halloween party, but any attempt to incorporate them into a fancy outfit will fail.
What is the alternative? Classics, of course. If your affection for shiny things can’t be helped, at least try to tone down the intensity of the colors in your wardrobe.
7. Wearing fine jewelry
To be precise, it is not the use of fine jewelry itself that damages its appearance, but its quantity and relevance to the occasion. Especially when you wear pieces made of precious metals in conjunction with costume jewelry. That won’t do your image any good.
To fit in with an everyday look, keep it simple. Again, less is more. Cute little earrings have an edge over a voluminous gold necklace most of the time.
8. Uncomfortable shoes
Heels make you feel and look prettier and more feminine, but only when they are not at the cost of your comfort. You don’t need to dress too much to run errands or walk the dog. It may seem like you have nothing else to wear.
Embrace simplicity. Normcore style is all over the fashion world, so dust off your favorite sneakers and walk on air.
9. Ignoring your size
There are letters other than S in the size range. Body shape and size can change from time to time, and that’s okay. What is not right is to wear clothes that do not flatter your figure. That goes for both tight and oversized clothing.
What are the pitfalls? It looks like a string-tied sausage or has a loose silhouette.
10. Ancient fashion trends
Treat fashion trends as an adventure, not a committed relationship. Get rid of them once the season is over. Otherwise, you could give the impression that you are wearing your clothes with ribbons and going shopping once on a blue moon.
How to stay on top of trends? If you can’t afford to keep up with all the news, go for classic shapes and colors. That will always work out in your favor.
11. Going wrong with pantyhose
Pantyhose are underwear and should not be exposed. A visible shine, in addition to showing elastic and seams, will negate all your efforts to look flawless.
What to choose? Matte, invisible and seamless pantyhose. No shortcuts and no shortcuts.
