will be considered beautiful not only by your features but
by the way you dresses, by the way you present yourself, by
your confidence and your style. If you have mastered all these
then you have a very lethal combination and you will be able
to rule the world by your beauty and charm. However we often
make certain fashion mistakes which though according to us
doesn't matter but infact these mistakes affect your sense
of fashion and style immensely.
Wearing the wrong colours
This is one of the biggest fashion mistakes that you can commit.
Just remember one thing that all colours don't suit your skin
tone. The colour that looks great on your colleague or the
actress you saw in the soap might not look great on you. Infact
it might look the contrary. Therefore you have to learn to
recognise which colour suits you and also the profession to
which you are associated. Experiment with different colours
and stick with the palettes that look best on you, regardless
of what's hot and happening. Don't waste your money on clothes
that make you look pale and ugly.
Proper Makeup is an important aspect of fashion. For every
occasion you require an appropriate makeup i.e., light for
day, heavier for evening, sheer for sports etc. You wear different
clothes for different activities in you life; similarly your
makeup should change as per occasion. To find out more about
makeup that will suit you check out our section on Complete
You will look complete only if you are dressed appropriately
from top to bottom. Therefore even your shoes should be appropriate
for the occasion and should go with your dress. Don't wear
shabby, unpolished and rundown shoes. Polish them regularly.
Use a felt tip marker on scuffs, and put a piece of soft carpet
under your feet when you drive. And most importantly, invest
in a good pair if you're going to wear them every day. Spend
on your shoes that will give you comfort and will look great
Wearing a size too small
If it doesn't fit, don't wear it. Squeezing into a size that
is too tight for you may feed your vanity, but it will make
you appear overfed to everyone else. If the dress you are
wearing is not comfortable and you cant sit or walk properly
then it is not going to make you feel beautiful at all and
you are definitely not going to look your best. Then why put
yourself through that kind of torture? Find clothes that fit
or have them tailored to fit and look your best.
Visible bra lines
Make sure your bra fits you properly. It is very embarrassing
if your bra's show or it rides up in the back. Similarly get
bra's that fit you properly. If your breasts sag then it's
very clear that you are not using proper bra and it's time
to seek professional help.
Slips that show
The next fashion mistake will be letting your slip show from
under your skirt. Don't use the same slip for all dresses
coz it might not be proper for all. Buy slips in several lengths
and replace them once the elastic wears. For the most discreet
linings, buy slips in the colours you wear most often, like
black, navy, beige, and white.
There are some people who smell terrible despite using good
perfumes. Drink plenty of water and eat lots of fresh fruits
and green salads. Buy deodorant that works with your body.
You may have to try a few to find the best one for you, and
you may need to change every now and again if your chemistry
changes, like after having a baby, starting new medication,
going through menopause, or the like.
Broken nails, chipped polish
Manicure is a must. Keep your nails clean and evenly trimmed.
Always have clippers and a nail file in your purse and desk
at work for emergencies. If you're in a business environment,
stick with conservative nail polish colours at work and save
the sparkly/neon/funky looks for weekends and vacations. Don't
grow your nails too long if you are working.
