Some of us are unaware of our shape, which makes it a little easier for us to commit fashion crimes. Although you are free to wear and dress entirely how you like, these fashion don'ts in my opinion are unforgiveable!
It's important to get it right. By knowing these basics you will definitely be on your way to becoming fashion savvy and more importantly stylish!




Leggings (for me) are for the gym. They should be worn underneath dresses or trousers to create layers and warmth but really girl, not everyone can get away with wearing a pair of leggings and make it look cute. So if you're going to wear them, keep these suggestions in mind.
  • Purchase a quality pair that are NOT transparent! We don't want to see your Victoria secrets.
  • Purchase the right size! Too tight means camel toe may be in full effect...that's a no no!
  • Purchase leggings and not tights...they're not the same! Tights are thinner. You will commit a multitude of sins if you wear them as leggings!



#Bra straps
When wearing a strappy top, it is essential to ensure your under garments are undetectable. We sometimes do not give this any thought, however this mistake can leave you looking sloppy and unkept. Given that it is some what a 'style' to show off the straps, ensure you do it properly.
  • Invest in a strapless bra! The picture above is not on point.
  • Wear clothes that fit correctly. Double check before you leave the house that everything is sitting neatly
  • If showing your under garments is a part of the look you're going for, ensure your underwear is fresh, clean and pretty.


#Clothes too tight
My pet peeve is seeing that clothes don't fit correctly. We sometimes may be in denial that we have gained weight, or maybe we haven't accepted that we are a little taller or shorter than the average height. This is sometimes shown by the way our clothes fit us. It is important we try and understand our body's shapes and sizes.

  • Measure yourself. Find out your height, width, bra size, inside leg etc. Knowing this information will help you shop.
  • If you want your clothes to be fitted, get the correct shape, don't just opt for a smaller may look like its too small.
  • Ensure the clothes you wear allow movement... we don't want to see your booty crack when you bend over!



#Visible Pant Line
Now girls, this is a BIG no no! Not only is it unflattering for your shape, but it also sends out a message to the thirst buckets. Not all, but some guys will look at you as an easy target or a cheap thrill to play with. So lets get it right first time.

  •  Invest in a body shaper. They suck you in and allow for fitted clothes to look seamless.
  • Invest in nude underwear. Wearing a white skirt with white underwear looks vile. Black underwear against Caucasian skin tones doesn't always work either. Get those nudes.
  • Don't buy such tight's not working for you!! ok!
 STYLE TIP: Keep in mind the pros and cons of fashion don'ts! They never go unmissed. Buy a mirror and use it thoroughly!
