Having Style: 5 Mistakes To Avoid

If you admire people who have style, know that a successful look does not depend on the price of clothes. To choose outfits and accessories that enhance your appearance, you must first know yourself well and be aware of certain fashion faux pas. Here are 5 mistakes to avoid in order to have style.

1- Not knowing the colors that suit you.

The first of the 5 mistakes to avoid for style is to wear colors that don't suit your complexion. Indeed, depending on the color of your skin and hair, you can't wear just any colors.

For some people, cool shades are more flattering, while for others, it's warm shades. There are thus four color profiles designated by the four seasons: winter, spring, summer, and autumn!

Taking an online color profile test will allow you to no longer make mistakes when choosing the color of your clothes, as well as your makeup and jewelry. Indeed, gold jewelry suits certain skin tones better, while silver jewelry suits others.

2- Do not know your size

The second of the 5 mistakes to avoid in order to have style is to wear clothing that is not perfectly fitted to your size.

Contrary to what you may believe, wearing loose-fitting clothing will not help you hide certain flaws in your silhouette but can make you appear larger! The same goes for clothing that is too small or too tight, which can cause bulges and create unflattering rolls.

To avoid these two style mistakes, it is essential to know your pant size, swimsuit size, and bra size for women. For these last two pieces in your wardrobe, it can be helpful to visit a specialized lingerie or swimwear store and seek advice from a saleswoman.

3- Associating too many different colors.

Colors are essential to brighten up your look and give you a healthy glow, but be careful not to go overboard and end up looking like a carnival character!

One of the 5 mistakes to avoid in order to have style is to wear more than 3 different colors at the same time.

If you like to wear primary colors like red, yellow, and blue, remember that you should not mix them together as they are strong colors. It is better to use them sparingly and combine them with more neutral shades like white, black, gray, or beige.

4- Wanting to give everything

Sometimes, to avoid the aforementioned fashion faux pas and not make a style mistake, one might think that the best strategy is to choose an outfit in the same shades. But in reality, this is another one of the 5 mistakes to avoid in order to have style!

Perfectly matching your shoes and bag with your clothes runs the risk of turning you into a chameleon... Instead, remember that these accessories are there to add an extra touch of color to your outfit and spice up your look.

On this point, one of the most radical and common mistakes is to only wear black under the pretext that this color is elegant and slimming. Beware: a total black look risks giving you a sinister appearance that evokes mourning rather than elegance!

5- Doing too much

The last of the 5 mistakes to avoid for having style is simply to overdo it. Even if you like unique pieces and accessories because they match your personality, make sure to only wear one at a time!

The risk of going overboard is to look like you're in costume. To avoid this serious style mistake, avoid combining too many colors or different prints in one outfit. It is completely possible to wear eye-catching graphic or ethnic prints, as long as you don't mix them together!

This advice of "not overdoing it" also applies when dressing for a special occasion, whether it's a formal ceremony or a date where you want to look sexy.

As soon as you step out of your comfort zone and everyday look, it's better not to exaggerate because there is a fine line between sexy and vulgar, well-dressed and overdressed. To have style, remember not to reveal too much and avoid clothes that are too short, too low-cut, or too transparent...
