A fashion faux pas is simply fashion gaffes/mistakes.
1- EXCESS/POORLY DONE MAKEUP
It is makeup for a reason, it is supposed to give you that pop. Not destroy what you had before. Do not be quick to use every makeup item on your face- especially when you do not even know how to use them.
2- VISIBLE PANTY LINES
Showing panty lines is a no no for any grown woman. Avoid wearing underwears that are visible in your pants, body-con dresses, skirts…etc. Get seamless and nude underwears for such dresses.
3- UNCOMFORTABLE HEELS
Heels are fashionable only when you can strut in them. Anything less and you can save us the embarrassment of watching you walk like a penguin. There are kitten heels, stick to them.
4- REVEALING TOO MUCH SKIN AT ONCE
The golden rule to this is, if the upper bit is showing- cover the lower bit and vice versa. Leave somethings to our imagination
5- OVER ACCESSORIZING
Accessories are meant to compliment our outfits, but they shouldn’t be overdone- lest we move about looking like a mobile accessories store. I couldn’t even find a woman to go with this, but understanding lo matter…lol
6- WEARING INAPPROPRIATE DRESSES
This is a 2-in-1 problem
i. Wearing the wrong dress for a right occasion (i.e) overdressing or underdressing. Maybe you didn’t get the memo. We should all have that LBD (little black dress). It helps when you do not know what to wear.
ii. Wearing the wrong dress for our body type. You want to hide your slim body, flabby arms, tummy…etc OR maybe you just think they are trendier. Don’t wear too big clothes or too tight clothes. They come off awful and age inappropriate most times.
