4 style mistakes you can avoid

  • Wearing clothes that don’t fit well

Clothes that are too tight are never comfortable and don’t make you look thinner, quiet the opposite!

On the other hand, clothes that are big and loose all over will make you look bigger. The more volume your clothes have, the more volume you will appear to have.

The perfect fit is when your clothes skim your body, without being tight.

  • Wearing the wrong fabric

Avoid at all costs thin fabrics that cling. They are never sexy. Instead pick fabrics that drape. Next time you look in the mirror, ask yourself: does this clings or does it drape?

  • Wearing the wrong neckline

If you have a big bust or wide shoulders, the goal is to show your curves without overemphasizing them and elongate your torso.

Choose tops that skim the body, collars that are long and narrow, wrap styles and v necks that elongate the neck and are universally flattering.

In the pics below you can see how the outfit on the right makes her look longer, leaner and is all around more flattering.

  • wearing the wrong color

The wrong color will make your skin look shallow, make you reach for makeup, and simply give you the wrong energy.  The right color can do wanders, brighten your eyes and evening out your skin tone. When you have on a color that is right you’ll know immediately.
