Fashion is such a great way to express ourselves, but sometimes we can make better decisions that can impact how we look and feel. As we age, it's important to pay attention to our style choices as some fashion choices can age us. Here are five fashion mistakes that you should avoid if you want to look your best.
- Wearing clothes that don't fit properly. Clothes that are too loose can make you look frumpy, shapeless, and bigger than you are, while clothes that are too tight can accentuate every wrinkle and curve you'd rather not show. Instead, opt for clothes that fit well and flatter your body shape. Not sure what to wear for your shape? Check our shape blog that breaks it down for you.
- Wearing too many trends at once or none at all. Keep things balanced. Don't be afraid to add a current trend for an updated look, just don't add them all at once. An embroidered blouse, for example is right on trend and looks smart with any plain basics. Keep it simple and let your light shine through.
- Wearing too much black. While black is a great color and can be flattering, wearing too much of it can make you look older and drained. Mix it up with some bright colors and patterns to add some life to your wardrobe.
- Wearing the wrong shoes. Shoes can make or break an outfit, so it's important to choose wisely. To keep your outfit interesting, try a shoe that works as an opposite for the style your going for. For example, wear a sneaker with a dress, or a heel with jeans. It adds an unexpected surprise and a style all your own.
Not accessorizing. Accessories can take an outfit from drab to fab. Don't be afraid to add some statement jewelry or a stylish belt to your outfit. It can add some personality and make you look more put together.
Ultimately, fashion is a way to express yourself and show off your personality. It's important to pay attention to the fashion choices you make, as some can age you. By avoiding these five fashion mistakes, you can look timeless, on trend, and feel more confident in your style choices.
