Top 4 Fashion Faux Pas to Avoid


Just as there are a few basic rules or makeup tips when it comes to wearing your favorite beauty brands, even fashion has a few rules inspite of the fact that it allows you great leeway too.

So, although it is a good idea to experiment and carry yourself a little differently from the crowd but there are a few mistakes that you must not make in the name of creating your own fashion statement. Explained below are a few fashion mistakes that will only expose your ignorance of fashion sense more than anything else:

  1. 1.      Leggings as pants 

Leggings can look great with a long sweater or short dress and a pair of boots (over-the-knee or riding boots), but wearing leggings with a shirt that doesn’t cover your backside is a no-no. Leggings are just not meant to be worn with short tops. It looks messy and unprofessional, and doesn’t flatter anyone, no matter how tall or thin she is. If you are going to wear leggings, pair them with a long-enough top.

2. Over-accessorizing

Accessories have the power to dress up a casual outfit or jazz up something neutral, but overdoing it can have the opposite effect. Wearing too many extras can clutter up your ensemble, making you look like a Christmas tree. The key is to edit: Look in the mirror before you leave and take one thing off. Less is more.

3. Too many patterns

Like over-accessorizing, mixing the wrong patterns can make you look chaotic. Patterns go best with  solids, especially if you’re not sure which patterns can mingle. This spring, we are seeing patterns played against each other, but it’s not a look everyone can master. To stay on the safe side, go bold on top and stay neutral on the bottom.

4. Going too casual

What you wear in your home is up to you, and comfort often trumps style when you’re just sitting on the couch relaxing. When you go out, though, don’t dress like you’re lounging in bed. Even if you throw on skinny jeans and a slouchy sweater with riding boots to go get groceries, you’ll look much more pulled together than if you stayed in yoga pants and a crop top.
