The 10 Commandments of Fashion
In the world of fashion, trends can change in a heartbeat. To help you avoid fashion faux pas that will leave you at the bottom of the style food chain, here are the 10 commandments you should follow:
1. Avoid ill-fitting underclothes
It can be easy to think about the fit of your clothes when buying tops or jeans, but what about what you wear underneath? Always buy the correct size underwear to give your body the best shaped silhouette.
2. Go for clothes that fit.
Clothes that are too big or too-small look terrible. Be careful while shopping, and don’t be afraid to ask the assistant for help. Remember that clingy material tends to show up bulges or layers of fat, so avoid these if you have problem areas you’d like to hide.
3. Match the material
If it’s a slim look you want, stay away from heavy materials like tweed and wool. Instead, we suggest you go for crepe or linen, etc.
4. Go for a look that suits you
Your clothes should reflect your own personal style so don’t try and mimic someone else.
5. Contrast the shapes and sizes.
If you’re wearing a tight top, don’t wear a tight pair of trousers but go for a looser pair.
6. Add splashes of colour
Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours. Adding a dash of bright red or blue to a plainer outfit of black or white is sure to impress.
7. Don’t follow, lead
Fashion is about setting trends; not following them. Embrace your own unique style in everything from new ladies dresses to jeans and tops; you never know, you might become the next big thing.
Your shoes and your bag are the first things that people will notice about you. Often a great outfit is ruined because of tacky shoes or a shabby bag so invest in good brands that match.
9. Dress appropriately for the occasion
Don’t wear jeans to a formal function and similarly, don’t wear something overtly revealing to an office party. Always consider what sort of clothing everyone else will wear and dress appropriately to give the right impression.
10. Be confident
How you look can affect how you feel but ultimately confidence comes from within. Be proud of your sense of style and wear all outfits with a carefree and confident attitude – nothing looks better.
