We all love to look good and exude confidence when we show up anywhere. Yet, even the best of us make fashion mistakes that we look back on and promise ourselves to do better.
Here are the top 3 fashion mistakes that men and women of all ages make, leading to epic fails.
Now, we know some will argue against this, but if you can, avoid trendy fashion pieces like the plague. Yes, they may be fun to experiment with for a while, but as soon as they’re out of style, you’re the rigid person who just doesn’t know how to let go of things whose time have passed.
Save yourself the money and invest in timeless pieces that will serve you for years to come. You will never go wrong with classic clothing, no matter how fashion evolves.
Assuming Someone Else’s Clothing Will Fit You
It doesn’t matter how good certain pants or a sweater look on a particular person; the same clothing won’t work for you if it doesn’t flatter your body type. Unfortunately, though, some of us see someone else wearing something that looks good on them, so we buy the same thing hoping that we will get similar results, only to end up looking like we’re trying too hard or borrowed unfitting clothes from a friend.
Do yourself a favor, find out your body type, what pieces flatter your appearance, and go for those. Thankfully, with fashion, there’s always something for everyone.
Buying Different Versions of the Same Things Over and Over Again
There’s nothing wrong with loving your black suits or white button-down shirts. Yet, you cannot show up to work every day wearing a black suit, to the point that people start asking if at all you have any other clothes. It doesn’t matter if one suit has pockets and the other does not, spice up your wardrobe and get a variety of a few neutral-colored pieces if you don’t like brightly colored clothing.
Ladies, buying a dress in all its available colors might be exciting, but the truth is, you’re wasting money, and it’s only a matter of time before you get bored of those dresses —that’s how humans are.
Most of us invest in clothing items that we like, but not so much on accessories, which elevates our style and makes us look like we’ve put in the effort to look good. Contrary to what’s promoted in the media, accessories do not need to be expensive. Invest in a watch that you like, a few dainty jewelry pieces, a hat, or even a neutral-colored bag that will work with most of your outfits, and notice just how transforming those are to your appearance.
Whether you are a man or a woman in your 20s or 60s, these tips apply universally, and when implemented, they’re fashion game-changers.
