Fashion has gotten a lot looser and more fun over the past few years. Instead of doing our hair and makeup every day and worrying about whether or not it’s okay to wear leggings to a christening, women today can wear cool, comfortable athleisure styles (from 2ToneFit, no doubt) that look just as good on the street as they do in the gym.
However, without all the strict rules that our mothers had to follow back in the day, it can be tricky to know when you’re committing a fashion no-no and when you’re just being a little edgy with your personal style. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of five fashion faux pas that everyone should avoid.
Following Trends That Don’t Work With Your Body or Style
First of all, we all love checking out the latest fashion trends, but that doesn’t mean we have to try every single one of them. Some trends simply don’t work for some body types, and some won’t work for your personal style. Don’t try to follow trends that make you uncomfortable or that you know just don’t work for you, and you’ll always look a lot sleeker and more stylish.
When it comes to accessories, a little bit goes a very long way. If you have a pretty necklace on with a low-cut top, you don’t need to stack a pair of big hoop earrings on top – it’s distracting and won’t help your look. When in doubt, less is always more.
Wearing Jeans That Don’t Flatter Your Figure
Skinny jeans aren’t for everyone, and neither are wide flares or boyfriend jeans. Take the time to figure out the best style and cut of jeans to flatter your figure, and you’ll always look put-together, even when you’re just wearing them with your favorite t-shirt.
Wearing Clothes That Don’t Fit Properly
Finally, whether we’re talking about a skirt that’s a smidge too short, a blouse that gaps at your bust line, or jeans that are too tight, ill-fitting clothes are never flattering. Worse, they’ll make you feel uncomfortable and awkward, which will make the effect even worse.
Unfortunately, a lot of designers don’t make their clothes with women and their active lifestyles in mind. That’s why we’ve created a whole line of active wear that’s attractive and stylish, so you can avoid these fashion faux pas and look great wherever you go.
