Wearing baggy clothes can add pounds. Clothes that are too small accentuate unsightly bulges. Don't buy anything thinking that it will be "just right" if you lose weight. Look good now. If the size tag bothers you, cut it off.
That great suit or dress won't flatter you unless it's wrinkle-free. Avoid this fashion mistake and buy clothes that don't wrinkle or keep an iron handy.
Dressing too trendy.
Don't try to satisfy every trend in one day. You'll probably just end up looking silly.
Mixing two seasons in one outfit.
Your pieces will contradict each other. Stick with one-season fashions.
Evident bra and panty lines.
Wear proper fitting undergarments under your clothing. If they do fit you properly and you still have lines, then your clothing is too tight.
Avoid this fashion faux-pas! Keep your bra straps properly adjusted so they're not hanging out. If your pants are low-rise, your panties should be too.
Too much white.
White makes you look larger so limit this color. Don't even think about wearing white slacks or pantyhose unless you want to add bulk.
Your skirt or dress is too short.
Be comfortable. Make sure you can sit down without having to worry about what areas you're exposing.
Wearing too many colors at once.
This will make you look undecided. Stick with one to three colors.
Too many prints.
Don't try to mix and match prints or you'll look way too busy. Patterns don't look good on everyone. If you're one of those people that look good in just about anything, choose a pattern on the top or bottom, not both.
Using the wrong accessories.
Top off your look with accessories that match your style. Choose the correct length necklace. Short chains and chokers tend to make your neck appear larger. Don't over-accessorize.
Wearing multiple shades of denim.
Skip the head-to-toe denim. It's ghastly and will make you look unorganized and cheesy.
Dark colored clothing, light colored shoes.
Or visa versa. Keep your clothing and shoes in the same color family. White and black go with anything, but don't make the mistake of mismatching light and dark colors.
Large shoulder pads.
This fashion trend went in and out the 80's. If you wear shoulder pads, make sure they're thin and unobtrusive.
