Combining Clothes? Avoid these Four Mistakes.

Elegance does not always have to mean expensive clothes and elite fashion labels. You can definitely budget your money and still steal the show when you walk into a room! The trick lies in knowing how to combine clothes, mixing staple pieces with statement pieces. You should also play into your strengths, while also knowing what your ‘imperfections’ are and how to camouflage them.

Choosing the right outfit is not always easy, and there are rules to dress well. You have to opt for the appropriate clothes, sometimes combining them with low price pieces at the same time. For doing that you definitely need some creativity.

We know that certain things may have the tendency to get overlooked. Especially if you’re overwhelmed with finding the ‘perfect’ outfit for a special occasion. However, we’ll provide you with tips to reduce the risk of falling into those mistakes in the future. Here are some mistakes to avoid when combining clothes.

Choosing the wrong size

One of the most common mistakes people can do is wear clothing that is ill-fitted for their body type. As your body changes, so should your wardrobe. Trends often push people to pursue fashion by wearing clothes that are not fitted for them. Always be aware of this when you are purchasing clothing. Just because it fits you, doesn’t mean it’s meant for you.


Wearing the proper undergarments are one of the biggest-kept Hollywood glam secrets for the red carpet and special events. The stars know that having the right undergarment can take any look from drab to fab!

For women, it definitely starts with the underwear you choose to put on. When wearing dresses, be aware if panties are too tight or reveal your panty line. This can take a look from classy to tacky in an instant. This is one of the most serious style mistakes.

If you are self conscious of cellulite, want to bring in your waist a few inches, or just want your dress to fit a bit more smooth, girdles are definitely a must! SPANX made shapewear super popular, and honestly, once you find the right piece of shapewear, your life will never be the same! It is important to choose the most appropriate underwear according to the type of dress.

Drowning In Print

Prints can give an extra touch to many outfits, but wearing them is not always the easiest thing to pull off. When wearing prints, be sure to create a healthy balance by wearing more neutral colors.

Wearing leggings like pants

Times have definitely changed, where leggings are now an integral part of the wardrobe of every woman, like jeans and trousers. They are comfortable and can be used at any age. However, there is an important fact which is leggings are not trousers. The late Karl Lagerfield once stated: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”

Now, we may not completely agree with this statement. And leggings, definitely aren’t sweatpants, but let’s face it, they feel cozy just like them! We do agree, however, that there are still rules in play when wearing leggings. You should not wear leggings with a short blouse, because they are tight-fitted, you want to make sure you are covering up all of the right parts, so that you do not appear too exposed.It is good to wear leggings, with long garments. Like maxi sweaters or long T-shirts, also be sure to not wear with fabrics that are too light or thin.

In the end, we hope these tips are useful for a great appearance for you sure deserve to make a statement whether dressed up or down!
