Being a personal stylist and curator of fashion, most part of my life is spent talking about style and clothes. Half the time, we are either dealing with clients telling them what to wear and what not to wear. The other half of our personal time is spent on noticing what everyone around us is wearing, and this is just a reflex thought! There are times when you walk around in a mall and notice all the style blunders that people do. Though we believe personal style is unique to each individual, and you can wear whatever you feel is right for you, but there are a few general style tips which, if kept in mind could help people avoid the fashion crimes they commit.
Here are a few mistakes people should avoid.
Fits and Tailoring
“A gentleman never talks about his tailor”, rightly explains how important the fit of your outfit is. Be it men or women – if your outfit is perfectly tailored, it makes you stand out in the crowd. A blazer which flawlessly fits you or the hem of the trousers that effortlessly falls on your ankle talks a lot about your personality, even before you start talking.
SHOP FOR TAILORED CLOTHING :
Knowledge of your Body Type
Though we always say wear what makes you confident, you should always know, what areas of your body to accentuate and which ones to hide. Having a little knowledge of your body type will help keep your silhouette in place and also makes your look put together. For example, wearing a high waist denim will make your legs longer if you are petite.
