How you present yourself is how others see you. For flawless dressing
and make-up sense one has to learn the art of presentation. To look
killing, you not only require good looks and clothes but attitude
to carry yourself. We often make certain mistakes that immensely
affect your sense of
fashion and style.
Wearing the Wrong Colours
Beware! One of the common fashion blunders often committed. Remember,
all colours don't suit your skin tone. The colour that looks great
on your colleague or the actress you saw on the TV might not be
the right choice for you too. Therefore, you have to learn to know
the colour which best suits you. The profession you are into should
also be considered. Experiment with different colours and stick
with the palettes that look best on you, regardless of what's hot
and happening. Don't waste your money on clothes that make you look
pale and ugly.
Skin is beautiful, clothes are perfect but no proper makeup is
a horror. Never over do make-up. The lesser it is the better it
is. Subtle looks are in. Depending on the occasion you require just
right amount of makeup i.e., light for day, heavier for evening,
sheer for sports etc. As one has different clothes for different
occasion likewise make-up has to match with it as well.
Shoes add grace to your ensemble. Shoes make you complete. They
shoes should be very
comfortable and durable. If not chosen carefully or a misfit, shoes
can cause blisters and can also cause difficulty in walking, dancing,
running and other activities. Don't wear shabby, unpolished and
rundown shoes. Polish them regularly. It reflects ones character.
Use a felt tip marker on scuffs, and put a piece of soft carpet
under your feet when you drive. And most importantly, invest in
a good pair if you're going to wear them every day.
Wearing A Size Too Small
If it doesn't fit, don't wear it. Squeezing into a size that is
too tight will make you look plump and amount to tremendous uneasiness.
If the dress you are wearing is not comfortable then you cannot
sit, walk or move around freely. It will certainly not make you
feel beautiful or look your best at all. So, no need to undergo
such a tormenting drill. Find clothes that fit you well or else
get them altered to size.
Visible bra lines
Wear a proper one that fits you well. It is embarrassing if your
bra's show or it rides up in the back. So wear a proper cup size.
If your breasts sag then it's very clear that you are not using
proper bra and it's time to seek professionals help.
Slips That Show
The next fashion mistake will be letting your slip show from under
your skirt. Don't use the same slip for all dresses coz it might
not be proper for all. Buy slips in several lengths and replace
them once the elastic wears. For the most discreet linings, buy
slips in the colours you wear most often, like black, navy, beige,
It is a big turn off. You drive people away from you and end up
earning funny names for yourself. Never let that happen to yourself
and always carry a deodorant and use whenever you are too sweaty.
Drink plenty of water and eat lots of fresh fruits and green salads.
You may have to try a few to find the best one for you, and you
may need to change every now and again if your chemistry changes,
like after having a baby, starting new medication, going through
menopause, or the like. Keep some kind of mouth freshener handy.
Especially after meals, rinse your mouth and pop in some mint to
keep bas breath at bay.
Broken Nails, Chipped Polish
Manicure is a must. Keep your nails clean and evenly trimmed. Always
have clippers and a nail file in your purse and desk at work for
emergencies. If you're in a business environment, stick with conservative
nail polish colours at work and save the sparkly/neon/funky looks
for weekends and vacations. Don't grow your nails too long if you
