Five Style πŸ‘— Rules You Need πŸ‘Œ to Break πŸ—‘ to Look πŸ‘€ Your Best πŸ‘ ...

1. BUYING JUST BECAUSE IT is on SALE

More often than not, malls and retail shops lure us into their thresholds by proclaiming a percentage off their merchandise. In an effort to get us to buy their stuff, they promise us saving more than what we would have had the particular item not been on sale. But the reality is, even if the tag proclaims you have just saved fifty percent, you just really spent moneyβ€”you have not saved at all. While this is all well and good if you actually do love the item, it is another thing entirely if you just bought it on account that it is on sale. What happens to that slinky dress that you do not really want but was on sale then? Chances are, you just wasted your money on a fashion piece you do not really see yourself wearing.

2. DROWNING in OVERSIZED ITEMS

While oversized sartorial items are great and are trendy nowadays, this does not mean you have to entirely engulf yourself in these items. At least create a balance between well-fitting clothes and blousy and loose ones. Additionally, you need to be a little discriminating as well. Remember, there is a significant difference between wearing something oversized and trying to fit into clothes four times bigger than your regular size.

3. BURYING YOURSELF in ACCESSORIES

Accessories are great, and they work to your advantage by creating interest in your ensembleβ€”particularly if you are donning rather plain clothes. But be careful not to overdo it and pile too many of them on. While bling is great and makes your outfit look unique, there is no need to overwhelm yourself with it. You want your outfit to look tasteful, not trashy. Furthermore, burying yourself in too many accessories would make you seem like an over adorned Christmas tree and no one looks good like that.

4. OVERDOING REPETITIVE PRINTS

Today, coordinates are all the rage, and they look nothing short of fabulous. However, this does not mean that you have to wear it from head-to-toeβ€”even extending to your shoes, your accessories and your bag. You want to look fashionable and stylish, not like you are a walking ad for a certain product.

5. TRYING TOO HARD

There is absolutely no point in looking stylish if you are simply doing it just for the sake of being called such. If anything, it makes you seem like you are trying too hard. Do not force an ensemble just because you think you will look stylish. No matter how fashion experts may exalt a particular outfit in a magazine, if it does not work on the streets, chances are it is not going to work for you. Remember, take what you read in fashion magazines with a grain of saltβ€”you live in reality after all, and not on the fashion runway.
