Apart from the usual mortal sin of wearing ill-fitting clothes or styles that aren't suited for your body type, these are some of the style faux pas women still make. Read on to be informed and reformed!
1. Showing too much skin
Focus only on one area. If you want to bare your gams, opt to cover your arms and cleavage. You are not at the beach, so set some limits. Here, we lay down in-depth guidelines on sexy dressing.
2. Wearing pants in the wrong length
Most of us are too lazy to take our jeans and trousers to the tailor. When your pants are too long for your legs and you don't cuff them, they'll only drag you down, making you look shorter.
3. Slipping on heels are too high.
Besides wobbling your way from point A to point B, which will definitely make you look odd, wearing a towering pair of heels can make you look cheap and unprofessional. Pick a pair that you can really walk in, like these suggestions.
4. Overstuffing your bag
Besides damaging your handbag, bringing EVERYTHING with you can put a strain on your arms and shoulders. Lug only the essentials to make your everyday life easier.
5. Wearing something that doesn't make you feel confident
Sure, experimenting with trends is okay, but remember that the cardinal rule of fashion is to never go out the door when you're not feeling great about your outfit. For example, if fashion bigwigs dictate that a velvet blazer is a must-have and it's not really your style, don't be swayed by it. Wearing it won't make you feel better about yourself, and your lack of confidence will show.
