How Not To Dress - 10 Common Fashion Mistakes To Avoid! Part 1

 By: Sacha Tarkovsky
There are many fashion mistakes here we will outline 10 of the most common ones.

Many of the mistakes are made simply because women want to follow every fashion and of course, every trend does not suit everyone.

Anyone can present a stylish, classic, chic and fashionable look, but first let’s look at 10 common fashion mistakes which you should definitely avoid.

1. Your clothes are not the right size.

Wearing baggy clothes will simply make you look fatter and so do clothes that are too small they simply highlight bulges and can make you look un appealing and stupid.

Buy the size you truly are and not the size you would like to be.

2. Wrinkled Garments

A great suit or dress needs to be wrinkle-free and ironed for you to look your best, buy clothes that are easy to care for and don't wrinkle easily, if you don’t have much time.

3. Fashion trends that don’t suit you.

Keep in mind your figure and age and only wear items you look good in and not just something because it looks great on someone else.

Face the reality!

For example, if short skirts are the latest fashion trend in women’s clothing and you don’t have great legs pass it by.
There are numerous fashions and stylish looks and there is one to suit you - You don’t have to follow every fashion because you have seen a celebrity wear it or seen it a fashion show - Be sensible!

4. Showing bra and panty lines.

Wear proper fitting undergarments.

If they do fit you correctly and you can see lines, then your clothes are simply too tight.

Don’t wear any dress size that is too small, you are simply deceiving yourself about your true size.
Keep your bra straps properly adjusted so they're not visible

If your jeans and trousers are low-rise, your panties should be too although it has become fashionable to show your panties, this look wont last.

6. Wearing skirts that are simply to short

Don’t wear a skirt or dress that is too short.

Make sure you can sit, walk and dance without exposing knickers - Sure there is nothing wrong with short skirts that make you look sexy but there is a big difference between being sexy and simply looking tacky.

7. Too many Colors.

A common fashion mistake is using too many colors.

As a general rule wear up to a maximum of three, to be easy on the eye. Too many colors simply will make you look a mess and look like you don’t have any idea of co ordination.

8. Too many prints.

Don't try to mix and match prints as it will have a similar effect to the above.

Patterns don't look good on all women.

If you're one of those people that look great in most clothes, choose a pattern on the top or bottom but not in both areas.

Keep in mind with women’s style with colors and prints less is definitely more.

9. Using accessories in correctly.

Finish off with accessories by all means but again less is more. There accessories and should not

overpower and highlight your good points.

For example with necklaces - Short chains and chokers tend to make your neck appear larger, so don’t do it if this is a an area you don’t want to draw attention to.

If you are going out in evening wear make sure your handbag is sleek, sharp and small a big bag with typical evening wear simply does not go!

Use accessories that match you look and also be careful they highlight good points and don’t draw attention to bad points.

10. Clothing and Shoes
As a general rule keep your clothing and shoes the same color.

The only exception is with black which goes with just about everything

Don't ever make the mistake of matching light and dark colors, for example dark clothes and light shoes.

Many of the above fashion looks are obvious and some may not be but they are made frequently by many women and this is mainly due to them being either slaves to fashion and not accepting their age or dress size.

In part 2 we will look at fashions and clothes that will look good on anyone, but for now the above 10 looks should be avoided at all costs.
