Fashion Mistakes That Can Spoil Your Look
While the world may be leaning toward more casual attire, there are still a
number of fashion faux pas you need to avoid regardless of the occasion or
dress code. Here are few special tips for you to look great and to how to avoid
spoil your looks.
the wrong colors -- All skin tones are not created equal. The lime
green or hot pink that you saw on the runways may look fabulous on the models,
but horrible on you. Experiment with different colors and stick with the
palettes that look best on you, regardless of what's "au currant." Don't waste
your money on clothes that make you look pale, sallow, jaundiced, or washed
a size too small -- If it doesn't fit, don't wear it. Squeezing
into a size eight may feed your vanity, but it will make you appear overfed to
everyone else. Shop by FIT, not by size. If you can't sit down or you feel as
trussed up as a turkey, you're not going to look your best. Why put yourself
through that kind of torture? Find clothes that fit or have them tailored to
fit and stack the cards in your favor.
makeup -- Light for day, heavier for evening, sheer for sports or
other strenuous pursuits. You wear different clothes for different activities
in you life; your makeup should change as well. And if you're still doing
Cleopatra eyes, it's time to turn the page and see what's happening THIS
century in makeup styles. Look around various magazines or if you are a net
surfer you can find lots of information on various websites.
the wrong color of hose -- You'll look taller and trimmer by
matching the color of your hose to your shoes and your hem. Wearing a black
skirt and shoes? Opt for sheer black hose. Have a bright blue dress and taupe
shoes? Go for the taupe-colored hose. What? You only wear black hose because
they hide things you don't want people to see? Well, guess what: unless your
whole outfit is black, you're CALLING ATTENTION to your legs. If that's not
what you want, it's time to rethink your plan.
shoes -- You look great...from the ankles up. If your shoes have
seen better days, find a good shoe repair shop and put them in for some TLC.
Polish them regularly and preferably wear them matching to your dress. Use a
felt tip marker on scuffs, and put a piece of soft carpet under your feet when
you drive. And most importantly, invest in a good pair if you're going to wear
them every day. Don't buy them at some cheap road market shop and then wonder
why they don't last. Instead its better go for some branded shoes sale. These
days there are many branded brands which sell for very reasonable rates.
nails, chipped polish -- Keep your nails clean and evenly trimmed.
To make repairs quickly, have clippers and a nail file in your purse and desk
at work. Paint over chips or remove all polish. If you're in a business
environment, stick with conservative nail polish colors at work and save the
sparkly/neon/funky looks for weekends and vacations. Dragon-lady lengths are
never appropriate for business.
that show -- Unfortunately, one length does NOT fit all. Buy slips
in several lengths and replace them once the elastic wears. For the most
discreet linings, buy slips in the colors you wear most often, like black,
navy, beige, and white. You want to mute the sheerness of your garment-not all
attention to the color of your slip.
stains -- First, buy deodorant that works with your body. You may
have to try a few to find the best one for you, and you may need to change
every now and again if your chemistry changes, like after having a baby,
starting new medication, going through menopause, or the like. Selecting the
right deodorant is very important part of your personality. If you perspire
heavily or need a surefire method to prevent stains, consider using dress
bra lines -- Make sure your bra fits properly. If it rides up in
back, slips of the shoulders, or lets your breasts sag instead of offering
support, then it's time to seek professional help. You can usually find trained
fitters in the lingerie departments of better department stores.
-- Hair color can do wonderful things for you, but it can also be hard on the
budget. If you can't afford the regular maintenance required by allover color,
consider getting highlights instead. And whatever you do, make sure your hair
color matches your skin tone.
