I doubt anyone does all of these 10 things at the same time but I’m sure we can all relate to some of these things at one time or another. Some of these fashion mistakes include fashion and mishaps but it also includes a bit of style as well. All of this is purely in my opinion, so if you disagree that is totally fine. It really doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks but you can learn something along the way.
The first mistake that I often see women making is wearing shoes or heels that are the wrong size.
Many people love shoe shopping. You go into a shoe store, try shoes on and you buy them. But it is at the end of the day that your feet are the most swollen. If you put your shoes on, do you think it will fit perfectly? You think it will. You purchase them and then wear them to work, you put them on before church or wherever you’re going in the morning and then they’re slightly too big. A lot of people decide not to return the shoes. They think that they can just kind of get by with the size they purchased. But I can always see the tiny little gap between the shoe and the heel and that just doesn’t look good. It really does bring down an outfit when you’re polished from top to bottom but your shoes don’t fit right. Sometimes it even makes the person not really walk as well as they would have if they just had the right fitting shoe, especially with heels.
The second fashion mistake that I always see women making is wearing too much jewelry.
A lot of women think that they always have to have something in their ears and on their neck. I do think there are certain pieces of jewelry that you can definitely combine and lay on and it looks amazing. The problem comes in when you wear a very chunky necklace and feel the need to then put on a matte pair of earrings. That is just way too much. If you’re wearing a bold pair of earrings then just skip the necklace. If you’re wearing a very bold necklace then just skip the earrings, but when in doubt just go for the daintier, gold, silver, tone jewelry.
I think you’ll be set the third fashion mistake goes along with the last one which is not wearing any jewelry at all.
I understand it just can be a personal preference, and that’s totally fine if jewelry is not your thing. However, I do think jewelry is kind of like the icing on the cake. I often think about it as you doing a full face of makeup but just leaving off the lipstick and that just doesn’t look right so in my opinion.
The fourth fashion mistake is cat hair or lint.
If you’re a pet owner, you definitely know what I’m talking about. Anything that is dark attracts fur. But if you don’t have pets you probably still occasionally get lint from maybe a blanket or different types of materials and you do see the lint or the fur on the dark shirts or pants.
I cannot leave the house without lint rolling my entire outfit if it’s dark. Some people do choose to skip this step and they leave the house and you can see it in certain shadows that there’s lint cat fur. It’s very subtle oftentimes. But it’s still there and there are lid rollers in almost every single grocery store aisle.
The fifth mistake is chipped nails.
Now I know there’s tons of people out there that are very on top of this. They never let their nails look terrible. They’re very polished and manicured with their nails, but then others kind of let it go. It’s not really that important to them. If you have your outfit on, makeups on point, you have a fabulous handbag, your shoes look great, but you have terribly chipped polished nails then it just doesn’t look good. It brings down the entire look.
The sixth mistake is saggy Jeans also known as diaper-butt.
I have started seeing so many women everywhere in the grocery store, at the mall and everywhere with this diaper-butt look. When people buy jeans in the store, the fitting room are the tightest they’re ever going to be. People try them on in a dressing room. They buy the ones that fit the best and go home. As they start wearing it the first two or three times, the jeans start to stretch out a little bit over time usually within a month or two. The jeans do not fit nearly as well as when they did in the dressing room, aka Diaper-butt.
The seventh fashion mistake is when women always buy the same size of clothing.
I often here women say, “I’m a size 6”, or “I’m a size 4”, “I’m a size 12” and they just stick with the number because that’s just what they are. I’m really confused with that because every single brand, style, just everything in general, I am completely different in sizes in every single thing. You’d be surprised by how many people buy the size they think “they are” or “they should be” rather than what flatters them the best.
The eighth fashion mistake that I often see women making a wrinkled button-down shirts.
For men and women, button-down shirts are notorious for being wrinkled. Looking wrinkled in general doesn’t look good, but for some reason I see it the most when it comes to button-down shirt. I think it’s probably because they’re the most difficult to iron. You have to make the sleeve lay really flat. When it comes to button-down shirts, I really think it’s important to actually invest in high quality brands and materials for that particular type of clothing. Investing on high-quality brands can be well worth it.
The ninth fashion mistake is dirty shoes.
I see this all the time a lot of people would never ever walk around with muddy shirts, or muddy pants or mud across their face. But yet, a lot of people find that it’s acceptable to have really dirty shoes. I do understand this some of the time. A lot of times I do see it with tennis shoes or sneakers or like boots in the fall, like maybe people are going pumpkin patch picking. I think a lot of people forget to actually clean their shoes and then they continue to go out and it just doesn’t look really great. Cleaning off your shoes will not only be good for the shoes, but it will actually extend the life of them. It will make your outfit look 10 times better.
The tenth mistake that I always see women making is not changing out your handbag for the occasion.
Not everybody has to have a huge handbag collection or be interested in handbags. I do think everybody should have a select few bags that fit various categories. For example, there is a difference between a large everyday bag and a smaller, dressier bag. Even at weddings, I’ll often see a woman dressed to perfection. She has a beautiful slim fitting dress and her shoes are gorgeous. She just looks so nice for this event. But, she’s carrying a large tote bag that just doesn’t look right at all. She focused more on the outfit. In my opinion, handbags complete the outfit.
