Looking more stylish and fashionable isn’t really about wearing the most expensive, trendy clothes or mastering complex styling tricks. Do’s and don’ts also apply in fashion. Just because something is expensive, flashy, or trendy doesn’t mean it’s an ideal choice for everyone. Most of the time, things in fashion are created to suit a specific bracket; whether it’s body type or age. Veering away from this bracket can lead to terrible results. So, it’s important to wear what suits you and makes you look good. Unfortunately, sometimes this is easier said than done. But don’t worry, there are some do’s and don’ts of fashion that will help you in this regard. Read on to learn about The Do’s and Don’ts of Fashion
Following are some universal do’s of fashion that will help you with your shopping selection as well as allow you to make fashion/style choices that you can be proud of:
Do: Prioritize Comfort
When it comes to fashion, it is extremely important to choose something that you are comfortable with. Comfort should be your top priority because if an outfit makes you uncomfortable, it will be hard for you to pull it off. On the other hand, when you are comfortable in what you are wearing, it will become easier for you to exude confidence.
Do: Invest in Tailoring Services
Even with lots of variety available, it is often challenging to find clothes that fit your perfectly. The good news is, tailors exist. Investing in tailoring services is worth the cost and will help you make sure that all your clothing fits you perfectly.
Do: Dress for Your Body Type
As mentioned before, things in fashion are created to suit a specific bracket and not all styles are suitable for all body types. That’s why it is recommended that you dress yourself accordingly. Whether you have a petite or overgrown body type, accept it. Don’t go into a fashion store and pick some other size just because you are ashamed of your body type.
It’s all about the details when it comes to fashion and styling. So, be sure to accessorize your basics. Whether you pick an elegant hat or a stylish statement timepiece, it is highly recommended that you be sure to add such pieces to your collection. There are certain accessories that are always in style so it would be a good idea to look for those. Socks, hats,belts, scarves, backpacks, etc. – there are lots of options available to accessorize your wardrobe.
Do: Be Practical
While there is nothing wrong with wearing trending outfits, investing in slow and sustainable fashion has more benefits. Not only does it allow you to stay in-style, but you also get to build a sustainable future by helping the environment.
Now that you know what to do when it comes to fashion and styling, it’s time to highlight what you shouldn’t do.
Don’t: Wear the Wrong Size
Getting your size wrong is easier than you might think. The matter of choosing the right size can be rather complex, so it is crucial that you know your measurements. It is recommended that you enlist the help of a professional to determine them and then use those to guide your buying decisions.
Don’t: Overdo Patterns and Prints
Wearing a printed pair of pants or a skirt and a printed top is not cool to look at. Avoid overdoing patterns at all costs as it is just overkill. When you wear something patterned or printed, be sure to pair it with something plain or solid.
Don’t: Over Accessorize
Multiple layers of bracelets and necklaces at the same time are not cool particularly if you have a petite body. It is recommended that you always look at yourself in the mirror whenever you are dressing up. Try various accessorizes but don’t use all of it at once. If you are going to layer, using one or two is sufficient.
Don’t: Forget About Shoes
Shoes are just as important as the outfit. So, don’t forget about them and be sure to choose your outfits around your shoes if you are struggling to make a decision.
Living in today’s internet era where different influences are constantly fed through social media, it can be quite challenging and confusing to make the right fashion choices. The good news is, you don’t have to overcomplicate things. All you need to do is make sure you are comfortable with what you wear and you look good with it. With the above-listed do’s and don’ts of fashion, you will look great anywhere no matter the occasion.
