If you feel as though you have to rush around every morning just to get to work on time, then you’ll probably be compromising on your fashion game. If you want to stop this from happening, it helps to avoid these top mistakes.
Wearing Clothes with Wrinkles
It doesn’t matter if you have the most flattering outfit in the world because if your clothing is full of wrinkles, then this can easily hinder your look. If you want to get around this then you need to give yourself a little more time in the morning. Iron the wrinkles out of your clothes and also make sure that you give yourself a quick once-over before you leave the house. One way for you to save time when ironing clothes would be for you to invest in a small handheld steamer.
Being Too Trendy
There is nothing wrong with wearing outfits that are inspired by the runway, but you do need to make sure that you aren’t replicating them exactly. If you do, then you may find that you look out of place and that it’s just not “you”. One way for you to get around this would be for you to incorporate a few pieces and then add your own spin. This will make you look way more sophisticated and it may even save you a small fortune too.
You’re Matching too Much
You have to make sure that you never go too overboard with a single colour or print. If you know that you love to play it safe, then it helps to get creative with your colour combinations. For example, you could pair your basic clothing with a single bold piece. This will really help you to make the most out of your outfit and it will also help you to step out of your comfort zone. Little things like this can help your personality to shine through any outfit.
Clothes that are Pilling
Before you go out in your favourite outfit, you need to make sure that it isn’t pilling too much. This can make your clothes look worn out and it may even ruin your otherwise great look. Pilling often happens when there are small broken fibres in the fabric. These fibres then become tangled up in one another and it can be really obvious too. If you want to stop things like pilling from happening, then it helps to turn your clothes inside out before you wash them and to also use a delicate cycle too. This will drastically extend the life of your piece and it will also help you to make the most out of your outfit.
