Defining trends nowadays is not an easy task. Trends are in essence very complex mechanisms that mirror changes in the economic and political landscapes. Fashion itself is a reflection of social, economic, political and cultural changes. The main requirement that modern fashion makes to its followers is to deviate from the rules to emphasize individuality. Yet not many people dare to violate the idea of a style that stuck in their heads. This in result gives rise to many misconceptions regarding our fashion outlooks that ultimately makes our ‘wardrobe tasteless’. Here is a list of some wardrobe mistakes explained that can help us look stunning and showing our “self” with the help of clothes.
1. Misconception: BLACK IS SLIMMING
It is usually believed that black makes the body look slimmer and expressive. But the reality is totally different. Well, black doesn’t suit everyone and in itself cannot hide extra weight. To make our body visually thinner, we need to have a properly chosen cut, not black clothes. As a matter of fact, it is also recommended by stylists that women who want to hide their flaws should avoid wearing shiny black fabric or fur.
2. Misconception: LIGHT CLOTHES MAKE YOU LOOK FAT
Usually, light clothes are not preferred by people as they believe that light clothes make them look fat. But this is actually a misconception that is being accepted by most of the people. The style is more important than the colour. Choose a cut suitable for the body which will emphasize its advantages and whether it be light or dark, the choice of the colour should be made in such a way that it complements our body.
3. Misconception: SHORT PANTS ARE GOOD ONLY ON TALL WOMEN
This is a misconception that short pants are good only for tall women. Well, short pants look nice and flirty and suits on everyone, they are not just owners of long legs. Stylists usually recommend wearing ankle pants of bright colors that can visually shorten the body in contrast. Well, short ladies should give preference to calm shades pants with high waist and high heels.
4. Misconception: OVERSIZED FITS EVERYONE
Most ladies will look more elegant in voluminous things, but there are those who should be careful about choosing such clothes. In fact, oversized clothes perfectly suit tall and thin women as they add fragility to the image. For short girls, as well as for owners of non-standard bodies, it is important to balance proportions and to avoid wearing more than one voluminous item.
5. Misconception: A WIDE BELT “CREATES” A WAIST, MAKING THE BODY LOOK BULGY
Girls, mostly the one with a large waist, thinks that using a wide belt will make their body look slimmer. But this is not actually the reality. A wide or bright belt, designed to focus attention on the waist, works in the opposite ways for ladies with excess weight. It is usually recommended to have knee-length or slightly longer dresses for curvy women where the waistline will be moved up or down.
