5 Common Style Mistakes
We all get fed up with reading about what we should and shouldn't be wearing.
But there are really just 5 common style mistakes which will get you out of the 'quarantine frump' and back into your comfort zone!
Not just for the young...
Style advice often appears to be for the
young, the trendy or the affluent - but actually if you have a general
eye for what you like and just want to feel comfortable rather than
follow the in-crowd, all you need to do is by-pass the most common style
You'll be on your way to looking good in no time!
1 Holding on for too long
It’s easy to get attached to items you love. You’ve had them for
years, they fit every curve of your body and, dammit, they still look
good – or do they?
Often we try to make use of things 'around the house'. But would you feel your best answering the door in some of your 'everyday' items?
Getting rid of old favorites hurts for just a minute or two then they've gone - and invariably they will help someone else.
If you're lounging around the house, vow to wear items in which you'd be happy to greet a guest. Treat yourself to a soft track suit or pretty loungewear that's snug, pretty and up to date.
2 Wardrobe doesn't fit your lifestyle
You know what they say about Winter temperatures. “There’s no such thing as bad weather only
The same can be said about your fashion style, it’s
all about context.
Your straight from work look is probably spot on for
a casual drink after office hours but if you were going on to an upmarket restaurant for dinner you'd probably want to dress it up. It's all about being in your comfort zone.
That's exactly what's happened this year! You may be used to 'office appropriate' but this year it's been more of a 'duvet day' every day!
So take a look at what’s in your wardrobe - are you
equipped for work and play? Or the winter weather that’s sure to arrive?
If not, then it’s time to think ahead and
fill a gap!
3 You make impulse buys with no strategy
Fashion is constantly changing but your face and
figure is constant and every item in the stores will not do you justice.
Take time to discover the colors that suit you best and identify and understand your own figure so you can be more subjective about what suits you.

4 You buy cheap and make do...
No-one loves a bargain more than me, BUT if
you’re only looking for bargains it can end up wasting a lot of money.
most common style mistakes is compromising, it’s not the perfect fit
or the perfect color but it WILL DO!
The same thing can apply if you're buying online, something many of us are doing now. It's a pain if you have to send things back but if they don't fit correctly then you MUST do so!
you’re parting with hard-earned money then IT WILL DO definitely WON’T DO!
5 You lack confidence to do it your way...
Finally and I can’t stress this enough – Style
has absolutely nothing to do with fashion but everything to do with being
yourself, liking yourself and making the most of yourself.
There’s no such
thing as the perfect face or figure, but if you listen to your Body Talk
you will begin to appreciate what nature has given you.
Respect and value
yourself for who and what you are, appreciate your own likes and dislikes and
put yourself in control. A sense of
control brings – uh, uh, CONFIDENCE!
