'Trend' is the key word for everything, but what "suits" you and your body type is a totally different issue. Using the trends wisely and knowing which 'in' item to pull off and which to knock out is what separates a fashion rookie from a fashionista.
1. VISIBLE BRA STRAPS
Don’t wear tops that show your bra strap or even belly button for that matter. It looks bad, period.
Faith Solution: If you cannot afford a strapless bra buy those see-through straps an take one adjust it to be small enough to tie your straps at the back that they do not show outside the vest.
2. VPL- VISIBLE PANTY LINES
These are as bad as or worse than visible bra straps. Whatever you are wearing, white dress, pants, very fitted dress or skirt make sure these no panty lines showing. Opt for boy legged underwear(shorties-like) or seamless (no elastic) underwear.
3. HALF-DYED HAIR
Don’t half dye your hair! Apparently, it’s ‘trendy’ and a lot of girls are doing it. Please don’t.
4. FULL-LEGGED VS SHORT DUNGAREES
We know it is spring and all, and everyone loves denim, but stay away from full-legged denim salopettes. We don’t want you looking like a farm girl now, do we?
5. ART ON NAILS
So apparently, there’s this trend going around where girls paint little drawings with their nail polish, mixing different colors. Yeah, that’s really bad. Just stick to one solid color.
6. BRIGHT COLOUR TOWELLING/VELVET TRACKSUITS
Don’t wear a full Juicy Couture or any velvet training suit unless it’s black or navy. So yes, bright pink (eoww) and baby blue are out of the question.
7. HEAD-TO-TOE PRINT
Don’t wear too many patterns at once. The other day, we spotted a woman dressed head-to-toe in a hideous leopard print. Shirt, pants, shoes, bag –everything! Just pick ONE! Remember: subtle.
8. LEGGINGS ALL SORTS SHOW
Don’t reveal too much when you wear leggings. Even if your rear end is super toned, always wear a top that covers it.
Do wear pantyhose on short skirts and dresses. It’s not a rule, but it looks so much more decent, and we strongly recommend it. Whether it’s transparent or opaque, it’ll make your legs look so much more toned. Also do the footless pantyhose with skirt, it adds modesty into those flare short dress.
NB. Match your shoes with your pantyhose for a slimming silhouette.
10. BELT IT
Do wear a belt whenever you wear clothing with belt loops.
11. PEARL IT
Do wear pearls. They’re so elegant and feminine. Need we say more?
12. BOHO MAXI SKIRTS
Do wear flat strappy sandals with your long boho maxi skirt, but don't let the hem sweep the streets.
13. PRINTED PANTS
Do wear printed pants, but ground them with a solid top that pulls out one of the key colors from the print.
Do wear statement necklaces and accessory pieces, especially with simple clothes that need that extra pop of glamour.
