MISTAKE 1: WEARING THE WRONG BRA SIZE
The first fashion mistake i want to share with you is wearing the wrong bra size this is the worst thing that can happen and i have been a victim for the longest time, not only it is uncomfortable but also it can ruin your whole outfit.
How do you know you are wearing the wrong size? Here are some of the signs that the bra size is wrong:
- YOUR BOOB IS FALLING OUT : One of the first thing that will tell you that something is off is when your boob no longer fit in the bra, when it is falling off it is means the bra is either too small or too big for you which is very uncomfortable cause you will have to adjust every minute here and there.
- Your skin is irritated or chaffing : which is due to the fact that your bra is too small
- The back band is sliding up : we all know this and we all have been there and some people are still here but at the end of this blog I hope you will change that ( if you are still there of course !). When the back of your bra is sliding up it means that the bra you are wearing is too big for you so you need to change that.
Not only wearing a wrong size can ruin your outfit but also wearing the wrong bra for the outfit is also one of the common mistakes people make like you are wearing an off-shoulder top with the straps of your bra showing off that also doesn’t look great and here is how you can correct all these mistakes.
HOW TO TO CHANGE THIS
- KNOW YOUR BRA SIZE
The first thing to do is knowing and wearing your bra size, there is so many information out here and many stores that provide bra fitting services so sis it is time you invest in a good fitting bra.
A good fitting bra should have the level band ( which goes around your chest) should fit not too tight not too loose, make sure it is comfortable and true to size because the band is the one that provide support. It is also has comfortable cups your boobs should sit comfortably into the cups not sliding or leaving space that is why is crucial to get your proper size.

- BUY MORE BRAS
Another thing you need to do to correct this fashion mistake is to buy more bras, different colors ,types and sizes because you know that your size can change with time due to different factors so make sure that you also change accordingly. With so many options it will help you avoid those mistakes and make you look more put together.
MISTAKE 2: WEARING THE WRONG SIZE
Another common fashion mistake people do and ignore most of the time is wearing the wrong size it can be in clotting or even shoes which can be very uncomfortable and makes you look very not put together.
When it comes to styling one of the common mistake people do is wearing an oversized jean with an oversized top and an oversized blazer that doesn’t look flattering at all, if you want to look more stylish pair an oversized item with an other true to size item this combo always look better.
THE SOLUTION IS
- INVEST IN YOUR TRUE SIZE : When you are shopping make sure you buy clothes that are true to size if you are buying online use the size guide or read the reviews before you buy anything. Not only it makes you look put together but it is also comfortable wearing something that fits it can be your clothes even your shoes.
- KNOW HOW TO STYLE DIFFERENT ITEMS : If you love wearing oversized clothing make sure you also know how to style them differently according to your body type.
- STOP SHOPPING FROM ANY SHOP ESPECIALLY INSTAGRAM SHOPS : Shopping online can be tricky so whenever you are shopping make sure you check the size before shopping if you don’t you may end up with things that are hard to style and you will end up never wearing them.
MISTAKE 3: NOT IRONING YOUR CLOTHES
Another big fashion mistakes is wearing clothes that are not ironed , yes i know ! weird right? I used to be that girl , yes i admit.
I didn’t care much about ironing always told myself it doesn’t matter but listen don’t leave your house with that shrank top makes you look disorganized and cheap, sorry i had to say this !!!! If you can afford an iron please do some ironing, here are the benefits of ironing your clothes:
- Make your clothes look brand new and fresh which also boots your confidence
- Kills germs
- Helps control and prevent shrinkage
This is your sign to start ironing your clothes before you leave the house.
MISTAKE 4: BUYING LOW FABRIC QUALITY
We all love affordable clothes because we can’t all affordable designers but here is the thing sometimes you have to invest into quality over quantity especially those items that you wear a lot like your blazers, jeans, shoes, tops etc…
When you invest in a good fabric clothing or even shoes or accessories it saves you from always buying things that you only wear once and throw away which save time and money so yes sis invest in great materials.
Also another thing you need to know is that you have to refresh your wardrobe more often to avoid stocking on things you no longer wear or no longer need.

MISTAKE 5: NOT DRESSING ACCORDING TO YOUR BODY TYPE
The biggest mistake we make is not taking into consideration our body type when coming up with an outfit this is the worst and can kill your whole outfit.
We all have different body types and we should learn to love them and understand that different clothes look good on different body type not everything is meant for your body type, let that sink in !!!
There is so many articles on different body size and how to dress so make sure you read and find what works for you but the main key here is loving and accepting yourself which boots your confidence and this can make an outfit on you outstanding.
Fashion is all about trying out make sure you try so many style until you find what works better for you.
