The year is still fresh and empower your style we must!
There were so many fashion trends last year, some we’d love to keep, some we can’t wait to see disappear (cold shoulders- I’m looking at you) however, as we determine to look good this new year, here are some style mistakes to avoid.
Storing your pricey shoes in the worst places: Resolve this new year to not pile your shoes at the entrance of your houses. They might not be Giuseppe but they sure cost you money, you might as well create a home for them in your room; in their dust bags or boxes, or on a shoe rack. Also, do not store them in direct path of sunlight as this may damage your shoes.
You just love to splurge on trends- Trends are fickle, they come and go, invest in pieces that can outlast the trend, that you can still wear for ages to come. Buy quality, buy functionality; ask how many times you can wear it and to what type of places. Will you look dated if you wore it next year?
You believe loose styles flatter plus size women: Plus size women are taking over fashion, and boxy don’t cut it anymore, from Taje Prest to Latasha Ngwube, there are numerous inspirations to up your plus size style game this year. Ditch lose styles and go for outfits that are cinched at the right places to flatter your figure. Psst- you can’t go wrong with shape wear either.
Don’t let anyone tell you embellishments can’t be worn in day time: You know how people tell you shiny clothes are better at night? Scratch that! You can wear embellishments during the day, where you are feeling too flashy, pair them up with solid dark colors to reduce shine and still shine! Lol
“Take one accessory off before you step out” is crap: Who makes all these rules? Pile on the accessories please. Depending on the look you are going for, accessories are a bright way to spice up your outfits. More is more ladies!
It’s a new year, make your own rules really. These are just guidelines, and they were made to be broken, but in all, be sensible in your styling but be confident in choices.
