It happens to the very best of us. There are times when we go against better judgement and land up wearing something that only makes us cringe later.
To avoid such moments, we have come up with 5 common fashion faux pas that you should seriously avoid. As by the end of it, we all are fashionistas by heart (at least to some extent) and want to look our best for every occasion.
Only wear outfits that you can carry well
That flowing lehenga with a mid-riff bearing top might look good on your favourite celebrity, but that does not mean you have to don it too. Be it Indian ethnic outfits or western dresses; go for an attire that you can carry off well. Else, your uneasiness will be too apparent.
It’s all in the attitude. If you do not feel confident about what you are wearing or what you are about to wear, then take a moment to give it another thought before setting out.
Do not select an outfit only for its design/pattern
Yes, designs and patterns do make a difference and help in flaunting your figure in the right manner, but you cannot select an attire purely based on it.
Designers and clothing brands design the outfits keeping the best of trends in mind. While every piece is beautiful and versatile in its own way, it will not suit all body types. Never pick a dress only for its design, but go for one that suits your body type. Also, think about the style, texture, fabric, fitting and cut.
Do not wear wrong fabrics
There are certain fabric rules based on the on-going season. If you wear heavy studded glitzy shimmery outfits in silks, velvets or brocades in summer then not only will it be a fashion disaster, but it won’t feel good either and add to your discomfort.
Remember to choose fabrics that suit the climate.
A wrong fit
Opting for a fit that does not go well with your body size is a common mistake that most of us make. What you wear should seamlessly go with your body shape and type.
Never wear oversized or crumpled dresses. Choose necklines and sleeves carefully.
What you choose to pair your top or bottom with is equally important to make your entire look appealing. Matching accessories also make a remarkable change in your personality and style. Never go overboard with matching and pairing partners for the sake of style.
Same goes true with the makeup too. Do not wear makeup that gives a tough competition to your outfit and accessories. When in doubt, go for nude glossy lips, everyday favourite blush and black kohl for eyes.
So there you have it, five simple things to avoid to ensure that you are always on top of your fashion game.
