7. Fashion Trend
I don’t traditionally like to focus on the negative but I thought that we could talk about these in a really constructive way and kinda help each other avoid making these Fashion mistakes because we all make ’em.I’ve made ’em, you know, you’ve made ’em. These are just good reminders to kinda keep in the back of your mind. Like, okay, I need to do these kinds of things before getting dressed or before shopping. So, it’s a sort of mix of both. But let me stop rambling and get started.
1. Fashion Mistakes Discount On Clothes
I mean you see that something is like 60% off or 70% off or you’re at the thrift store and you’re like, but this is Dolce; Gabbana and it’s in the thrift store and it’s my size. You fall victim to that because it is so affordable or because it’s so marked down. If it’s 20, 30, 50% off, you’re like,
oh, I’m getting such a good deal. And we all feel like that. We have that little bit of adrenaline rush. But, a lot of times those are pieces that we don’t end up wearing. So, I’m just saying downfall into the sale trap. Be strategic. Think about what you need. Think about what you’re missing from your basics checklist. Think about what holes are in your wardrobe before you make that purchase, and ask yourself, am I just looking at this because it’s Khloe, or it’s YSL, or because it’s a really great brand name? Or, am I looking at it because I genuinely love it and think it will definitely fill a void in my wardrobe?
2. Fashion Mistakes Trend Sale
The second Fashion mistakes a lot of us make is buying things at the last minute. And I know, like, let’s say you got a wedding coming up and you know it’s coming up in January, it’s a New Year wedding and it’s kind of tricky to find something to wear to that’cause you wanna look chic and you wanna look sexy but then you don’t want to be cold and you wanna be comfortable.
That’s not the kinda thing you can wait until the last minute to buy. You have to really plan ahead for that type of event, anything big like that.
When you go that weekend before or the week before and you’re like, I gonna hit the shopping mall and just see what I can dig up.
You end up in like a high-end store, you end up buying something you don’t really love and you pay way too much money for it. So, that’s a big one. I know I’m totally guilty of that one.
3. Fashion Mistakes Big or Tight Clothes
The next Fashion mistakes that a lot of us make is wearing ill-fitting garments. These are pants like you see here that are just so big in the hips, that it looks like I am, you know, 15 to 25 pounds heavier than I am. Or a sweater or a blouse that’s so oversized you could have two of you in there. And it’s making you look bigger! Or something in contrast that’s so tight and so fitted that you can see every single lump and bump, and you end up looking more like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.
You don’t want to wear garments that are either way too big, way too tight, or just ill-fitting, like, maybe gaping at the waist or gaping at the hips.
That’s a mistake we all make because we haven’t had a chance to get to the tailor. That happens a lot. But just be mindful of those fit issues that pop up and taking the time or making the time to make sure that you fix ’em, or you just donate that garment, or you don’t buy it in the first place. So, you wanna always kinda make sure your garments fit you well.
4. Fashion Mistakes Check Wear Clothes
The next fashion mistakes a lot of us make is forgetting to check out the rearview. Checking out what’s going on behind you before you leave the door.
I do this all the time, and sometimes what I’ll end up finding is that my underwear is totally showing through like I can see all of it. I can see the lines. I can see the color.
And that is a big no-no. You don’t want to do that. That’s embarrassing, right? Or if you’re leaving the restroom and you’ve got toilet paper hanging from the back of your pants. Or, I’ve done this one before where I’ve got the mini pearl-like tag hanging off the back of my dress or my shirt. So, you just friends make sure if you can, you give that rearview one last check before you leave the house, and make sure it’s all buttoned up back there.
5. Fashion Mistakes Undergarments
The next common Fashion mistakes kind of goes hand-in-hand with forgetting to check the rearview mistake and that is wearing the wrong undergarments. And a lot of times, if you wear light-colored trouser or light-colored pants and you wear underwear that’s a regular panty or brief, you’re going to be able to see that panty or brief. So, you just have to be aware, like, if I’m friends wear a light-colored trouser, I need to wear thong underwear or I can do like Soma IntimatesVanishing Edge Pantiesor a no-show panty that works well for you.
And the same goes for the bras. If it’s a garment that really is cut low, you’re gonna want to think about a U plunge bra or some stickies or a strapless that has a plunging front.
If it’s something that is off-the-shoulder, you might wanna consider a strapless bra or doing a really pretty strapped bra that you purposely let show. But you have to be thinking about those undergarments and also a lot of times we get that, the clump right here you know, right underneath the bra. I know this bra is great and I love it but it does sometimes give me that clump.
So, there is one bra that I know of that fixes that and it’s the Soma VanishingEdge Bra, I think it’s called. I don’t know the exact name but I’ll link it below for you guys. But that bra is a game-changer for this stuff right here because you want that to be smooth too especially if you’re wearing something super fitted. You don’t want that overhang
6. Fashion Mistakes Show Up
Another Fashion mistakes that I see women making, I just don’t feel like inputting your best foot forward as a woman, that is showing too much skin. I’m not saying you need to cover everything up and dress really conservatively. I’m not trying to be dowdy or dumpy or any of that. Like, you could be perfectly slim and smokin’ hot, a total smoke show, without showing everything. And by everything,
I mean, like, you got, the girls are out, the legs are out, the arms are out, the chest is, you know, it’s all show. As we get a little bit older, I feel like it’s more sophisticated to wear one area of skin exposure.
So, whether that’s your shoulders, your chest, your legs. I call it the one skin rule. So, it’s just a good rule of thumb when you wanna keep things classy, not trashy. And there’s definitely a fine line. So, you could go big, you know what I mean. But, for regular things, it’s probably best to kinda keep some things covered up.
7. Fashion Mistakes Trend
And lastly, the Fashion mistakes that I see women making or I hear you making is that you think you can’t wear blank because of your age. But I think you can wear just about any trend that you wanna try. As long as you pair that trend with basics, with very well-fitting, beautiful basics. So, I can rock these vinyl joggers with some really great ankle booties and a beautiful turtleneck, Something that sort of just downplays the trend, if that makes sense. So, when you do pairs that trend with basics, it definitely takes everything down a little bit.
So, if you went trend and trend and trend and trend and trend, that’s going to just exacerbate it, right? But when you wear neutrals, you pair it with neutrals or basics, then it definitely dials it down, quite a bit. And I think it makes it very, very wearable.
So, I’m saying that no matter what your age you can try any trend that you want to. I just don’t think that age should be limiting in terms of trying different, new, modern, fun trends. I think fashion should be fun. I think we should all have a fun time with it. Experiment with it.
Whatever makes you feel good. That’s what the goal is. That’s what we’re aiming for. When we look good, we feel good, and when you feel good, it affects everything.
Those, I think are the seven most simple fashion mistakes that women make, and I think those are good just things to keep in the back of your mind. You know, whether it’s you’re out shopping or whether you’re actually getting dressed. Those are good things to just remember, so you don’t have any wardrobe malfunctions. Do you know what I mean? We don’t want those. Life is hard enough we don’t need to be embarrassed on top of it. So, I hope that helps you guys.
