How to Deal With These 9 Nasty Blunders That Can Totally Spoil Even the Most Trendy Look

2 months ago

In a world increasingly embracing casual wear, certain fashion faux pas remain inappropriate regardless of the occasion or dress code. Look mistakes often stem from overlooked details, such as sweat stains or visible bra lines. Others result from questionable wardrobe choices, like wearing the wrong length or giant prints.

1. Pay attention to your trousers’ length.

Flared and wide-leg pants are really in right now, but even if you’ve decided to stick to the classic skinny jeans, length is something you should pay attention to. Before purchasing a new pair of jeans, take into account your style.

If you’re the type of gal that loves wearing high heels, then make sure your pants are hemmed so they stop just above the ground. If sneakers are your to-go pair of shoes, pay attention to your pants’ length. Your jeans should always be aligned with the shoe line. You don’t want them dragging on the ground and getting all dirty.

2. Sweat stains.

Banish sweat stains, deodorant marks, and damp spots from your underarms to keep your look flawless. Treat these pesky stains on shirts, hat brims, or blouses by soaking them in a mixture of two parts warm water and one part white vinegar for thirty minutes. If the stains persist, dab them with hydrogen peroxide before washing as usual. Your clothes will look as good as new!

When dealing with excessive sweat or hyperhidrosis, use an antiperspirant and talk to your doctor about ways to prevent and treat excessive sweating.

3. Not matching your foundation to your neck.

If you’ve ever spent time putting your makeup on, only to realize way too late that your face doesn’t match your neck, you’re not alone!

When purchasing your foundation, you should always make sure to swatch it in multiple places: along the jaw, the center of your face, neck, and chest, and to take into account the season of the year.

Your makeup routine should always integrate blending your foundation all the way down, over, and beneath the jawbone to the neck.

4. Visible bra lines.

Cover up your bra straps to avoid looking unfashionable! Make sure your bra fits well. If it keeps slipping or doesn’t support you properly, it’s time to get some help. Look for experts in lingerie departments at good stores and book an appointment to find the right fit.

If you wear dresses with lots of holes and straps, it can be tricky for bras, even strapless ones. But adhesive nipple covers and breast tape are lifesavers. They offer support and coverage, especially for outfits with less fabric and more skin showing.

5. Wearing giant prints.

Giant, oversized, bold prints not only make you look larger but also bring everything down. When in doubt, go with one printed piece and keep everything else classic and neutral.

Learning how to incorporate just one small-scale print at a time will give you a great foundation for mixing patterns later on.

6. Not embracing your shape.

One of the most important aspects of finding the right outfit is to take into account your body shape. The right clothes should highlight your shape and emphasize your best features. Your body shape will determine which clothes suit you and which do not, along with how you can make the best of your wardrobe.

7. Wearing the wrong colors.

Wearing the wrong colors is a common fashion mistake. The bright yellow or hot pink that you see your friends wearing might look amazing on them, but not so much on you.

Try out different colors and stick with the ones that look best on you.

8. Choosing the wrong pair of glasses for your face shape.

Just like your body shape, your face shape is also something important that you should take into account when buying your glasses or sunglasses. Frames are the perfect way to show off who you are, your style, and what your personality is like.

You can always find suitable glasses for you. Just have a good look at yourself, familiarize yourself with common face shapes like square, oval, or heart-shape, and find out what to look for in your next pair.

9. Wearing the wrong color of panty hose.

Choosing the right hue for your hosiery can be a game-changer for your ensemble. Achieve an illusion of height and sleekness by harmonizing the hue of your hose with your shoes and the hem of your garment. Donning a black skirt and matching shoes? Opt for sheer black stockings. Sporting a vibrant blue dress with taupe footwear? Embrace taupe-toned stockings. Still sticking to black hose to conceal imperfections? Consider this: unless your entire ensemble is black, you’re drawing attention to your legs. If that’s not your intention, it might be time to reassess your strategy.

Avoiding outfit mistakes doesn’t always require a wardrobe overhaul. Simply heed advice from fashion professionals to eliminate small errors that can cause discomfort. And if a wardrobe malfunction occurs, don’t let it ruin your day.
