Ladies when it comes to creating a fresh look that is unique to you, it is very hard to be critical of whatever your choice may be. The whole point of having a unique, personalized look is that it a style that you yourself have chosen. Therefore, it would be slightly hypocritical of me, for example, to be pointing out what you should avoid when choosing your style. Basically, you can’t go wrong with your unique look because it is YOUR choice. However, with that said there is still some common fashion faux pas that I think should be avoided when choosing a new fresh look. But take it with a grain of salt, after all the choice on what suits you best is 100% down to you.
Don’t copy a celebrity look
There is absolutely no reason to follow the look of a well-known celebrity to the extreme. While fine to draw inspiration from an outfit you spot on the red carpet, to take the look of a celebrity entirely stinks of unoriginality. There is absolutely no reason why you would need to limit yourself to copying somebody else’s look, no matter how glam they seem.
Combining too many trends at the same time
When it comes to incorporating current trends, don’t get overawed and incorporate them all at the same time. Stick with adding just one trend at a time. The reason for this is that utilizing many trends together will mean you run the risk of looking like you are trying too hard.
Ever heard the saying “less is better”? When it comes to adding accessories, by incorporating too many you’ll lose the effect. The fewer accessories that you have on, the greater the impact that these accessories will have.
Make sure everything fits correctly
There is nothing worse than possessing a great style but at the expense of having clothes that fit your shape correctly. Make sure that if you really want that specific clothing item that you are in touch with a tailor that can make the alterations required to have the item fit your shape. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking sloppy.
Ditch those shoes if you can’t walk in them
I had a close friend recently purchased a pair of shoes at a great value that didn’t fit properly. Her desire to buy shoes that were too small meant that she was left in the position of needing to go to extreme lengths to wear them. This included putting the shoes in the microwave at work in the hope of expanding the leather so that she’d be more comfortable. Avoid this situation, fork out a little bit extra and buy shoes that won’t leave you hobbling around in pain.
