Fashion is an art and should be taken seriously. Yet oftentimes, we make mistakes when dressing up. These mistakes aren’t always deliberate, that’s why they are mistakes. They are mostly done out of ignorance. And that’s allowed. Every day we live busy lives that we seldom pay attention to our appearance.
But have you been making any of these common mistakes when dressing up?
It’s good to dress according to what’s in vogue. But does it suit your style? Always remember that the goal isn’t to look trendy but to be stylish and comfortable in all you wear. As such, you should ditch chasing trends and instead buy timeless pieces.
MATCHING COLORS BLINDLY
Colors are a fun way to brighten up your mood. But when you don’t know how to match colors in your outfit, you become an eyesore. To avoid making this mistake if you haven’t already, learn how to mix and match colors in your outfits. You don’t even have to do too much.
Pay more attention to wearing colors that compliment each other.
WEARING WRONG UNDERWEAR
Your underwear can make or mar your outfit. Pay more attention to how your underwear fits on your body. They also contribute to how comfortable you’ll be in what you wear.
If you wear the wrong bra size, for instance, it will be obvious in your clothes and cause an unsightly distraction. And you don’t want your underwear to be the focus of attention, do you?
NOT DRESSING ACCORDING TO YOUR FIGURE
As iconic designer Hubert de Givenchy puts it, “The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress.” What you wear should always flatter your silhouette. The dress was made for your body and not the other way round. So, if you’ve been doing otherwise, it’s time to own your wardrobe by wearing only what suits your body type.
NOT WEARING CLOTHES THAT FIT
Your clothes should neither be too tight nor too loose on you. They should fit. And to ensure that, when you shop, endeavor to take them to a tailor for the necessary adjustments. This way, you won’t make any of these mistakes when dressing up.
SHOPPING WITHOUT CONSIDERATION
You should always see your clothes and accessories as an investment that gives you returns. When you do so, you’ll become more deliberate about your wardrobe. And you’ll buy only timeless pieces that will always serve you. So, rather than buy that hat only because it looks good, ask yourself if it’ll serve you. This way, you won’t just be shopping. You’ll be making an investment too.
NOT DRESSING FOR THE OCCASION
Always know the environment and what it entails and dress accordingly. The worst thing is to be under or over dressed for a situation. When in doubt, always inquire about the dress code prior to an event so you can plan ahead! Not only will you look awkward, but you will feel awkward. And when that happens, it totally kills the mood and leaves you feeling less confident.
