Steering clear of the dreaded “fashion faux pas”

Not matter how long you spend shopping, carefully checking out what you might love (sometimes more in hope than expectation), and focussing on things that you’re told are fashionable, there are a few simple rules that you need to bear in mind at all times if you’re not going to waste that precious time and money.

Some are obvious – but we all forget them in the heat of the moment! Wearing the wrong size for example, goes without saying. You may think that you’re a particular size – but is that a reality or an intention? All that time spent in the gym is surely going to make a difference at some point after all…

A very good source of such fashion tips can be found on a recent article on the excellent PinkVilla website, where opinions have been sought from co-founder of Indya Tanvi Malik and designer Kunal Rawal.

Wearing what’s appropriate for the occasion is most important, according to the article, along with the need to pay attention to detail “There’s a thin line between classy and trashy…”.

The advice about accessorising is particularly useful.

“Sometimes, less really is more. There is something about over-accessorising that screams. So, look away now. Necklaces are beautiful, statement earrings are to die for and hair accessories are great, but when you wear them all at once, it can get tacky and overwhelming.”
