[LOOK] Essential Dressing Rules That Everyone Should Know Once and for All

We’ve all heard the concept of dressing for your body type. However, when you really think about it, dressing for your body type feeds into the belief that looking slim and fitting into societal ideals is more important than wearing clothes you personally like, connect with, and have fun with.

“Dress shabbily, and they remember the dress; dress impeccably, and they remember the woman,” Coco Chanel said. It’s hard to disagree with her because clothes are a very important part of our image. Any flaw can be noticed — especially when you are going to meet someone for the first time.

“Dress shabbily, and they remember the dress; dress impeccably, and they remember the woman,” Coco Chanel said. It’s hard to disagree with her because clothes are a very important part of our image. Any flaw can be noticed — especially when you are going to meet someone for the first time.

21. Large squares

7 Fashion Mistakes We All Make

Clothes that have a large checkered pattern can completely kill your figure. They look stylish, but they give the impression that you’re several inches wider at the hips. Instead, go for designs with neutral prints or just plain colors. If you really love checkered designs and can’t imagine your wardrobe without them, select items with small rather than large squares.

 

20.Horizontal prints

7 Fashion Mistakes We All Make

Horizontal prints give the impression of a much larger figure than you actually have. But if you love striped clothing, don’t despair. All you need to do is change their direction: vertical stripes achieve the opposite, making you look taller and slimmer. Alternatively, you can always opt for a classic combination of different colored items.


19.Too much decoration

7 Fashion Mistakes We All Make

Endless ruffles, folds, and frills add at least a couple of sizes to your appearance. Try to choose clothing with the minimal amount of decorations, such as a zip-up skirt which will lengthen your figure or vertically striped clothing as described above.

18.A boat neckline

7 Fashion Mistakes We All Make

A boat neckline on a dress can give the impression that you’re a lot heavier than you really are, whereas a V-shaped neckline with cleavage can make you look truly elegant. Remember how we advised you to avoid clothing with additional folds? Pay attention to how much wider the waist appears in the left-hand image here.
