10 Fashion Do’s and Don’ts to Keep in Mind at All Times

By  |  0 Comments

The reason why I had to come up with a list of fashion do’s and don’ts is a terrible fashion faux pas that has been haunting me after a seaside break (a woman having breakfast in front of me in a sequin jumpsuit two mornings in a row – my eyes are still hurting).

I believe that a look can make or break a woman, and this is why we should follow a few common sense fashion rules to look our best. So here are my 10 personal fashion do’s and don’ts to read and apply:



1. Emphasize your top features instead of hiding them. Show off toned legs in a mini-skirt, or a little cleavage provided you keep your assets in a good push-up bra. Remember the word “little” though.

2. Wear lace! I know that today it’s all about easy denim, cotton and knits, but ladylike lace highlights your femininity like no other fabric.

3. Own at least one pair of plain, nude pumps. They look great with anything, anytime.

4. Spend the extra dollar on high quality fabrics that will last in time. Cheap stuff wears out pretty quickly so you will end up buying things again and again anyway.

5. Invest in a neutral silk scarf. It will tie easily and will elegantly complement any outfit. They are so versatile!

6. Go for vertical stripes that elongate the silhouette instead of horizontal ones.

7. Wear a string (or two, or three) of pearls. Unlike big, flashy fashion jewelry, pearls will always give you a refined, expensive look.

8. Wear spanx under any second-skin-tight outfit. They flawlessly reshape the silhouette injecting an extra dose of confidence.

9. Always check your rear view when trying on a skirt or a pair of pants. And do try to sit down in the changing room, especially if the garment is rather fitted. (preventing split seams is better than having to mend them)

10. Wear your clothes because they make you feel and look good, not because they are trendy.

1. Wear a multitude of clashing prints and patterns at the same time. They will look like a punch in the eye.

2. Pair a digital watch with a dressy outfit. If you don’t own a dress watch just go for a bracelet.

3. Dress like a teenager if you could almost be the mom of one. Never try to look like someone you are not, so act and dress your age.

4. Wear black underwear with a sheer white outfit. Not sexy.

5. Pair long jackets with long skirts. You will look bigger than you are.

6. Wear fake accessories, such as Chanel bags or Louboutin shoes. True connoisseurs will get it. And won’t appreciate it.

7. Wear silver jewelry when your outfit has gold hardware, and vice-versa.

8. Go for leggings or pants with big prints. They will make your legs look heavier.

9. Wear sky high heels or really tight skirts you cannot walk in. Unless you want to entertain the onlookers.
