Wearing wrong size silhouette

If experimenting is your mojo and sartorial, then refrain from jumping between sizes while trying different silhouettes. A boxy-fit top is called so for a reason and a midi dress deserves to be worn like a midi only. Do not get swayed by the temptation of buying a smaller size of an oversized top, it is meant to look oversized on your frame.

​ Attempting an ‘all eyes on me’

I understand that you bought the most roaring piece of jacket and dress this fall, but there is no need to wear them together. Build your look around one focal piece and not adorn all those attention-grabbing items together. Use your creativity - as they say, ‘fashion is what you buy and style is what you make of it’.

​ Not dressing as per body-type

This one can be a tad difficult for non-fashion enthusiasts. But it doesn’t hurt to research once in a while, and work out what suits your body best and lets you flaunt your highpoints. Optical illusion is a science and an art lover must know how to use it to his benefit.

Ignoring the occasion

Ignoring the occasion
It’s not just a fashion faux pas but also considered rude if you are over or under dressed for an occasion. In most cases, the invitation card highlights the décor, venue and guest setting. Otherwise, it’s always a good idea to check with your host.

Wearing shoes that don’t flatter

 Wearing shoes that don’t flatter
No, not just stilettos, you can even go wrong with flats and land up with a pair which is either too narrow or uncomfortable for your feet. Shoes are like a cherry on cake to your look, and also the foundation of your poise and posture. It is very important to choose comfort over style when it comes shoes, otherwise you’ll just be waiting for the party to end.

​ Overdoing accessories

​ Overdoing accessories
Nothing kills an awesome outfit worse than an overdose of accessories. Choose your accessories wisely and as per the outfit. If you are going all out with the bling and shimmer in a golden dress, you can ditch the jewellery - sure, you don’t want to blind the admirer, but just a classic clutch with that dress would do the trick. If you are creatively elevating a solid dress with accessories, then make sure your shoes are not talking Tokyo and bag London.
