Fashion faux pas alert
These are the fashion faux pas you’d want to avoid this New Year’s. So go ahead and make a resolution to put your well-informed fashion foot forward.
Too much skin: Classic is the new sexy. You don’t have to bare it all to gain attention.
Bling overload: Shimmer and shine but don’t overdo the accessories that would make you look like a Christmas tree. Keep it simple and classy. Just a stunning neck piece or a metal belt can do the trick when worn correctly. Animal prints: A big no-no. Go for psychedelics or solid colours instead.
Give black a break: This season experiment with the vast array of fresh limes, fern greens, peaches and corals. Even striking gold is in.
Pointy shoes: A complete fashion blunder. Rather, top up your look with crystal embedded transparent heels. Wedges are a smart choice if you plan to dance the night away.
Wrong silhouettes: Bandaged dresses are done with. Completely. Choose the dress contour that suits your body type and pay attention to never emphasise those love handles.
Thong a boo: Choosing the right inner wear is no rocket science. Pay equal attention to match the right inner with the kind of outfit you’re wearing.
Eyes and lip colours: Avoid animal texturing and blue or gold lips.
Hairdos: Go for soft curls or simply braid your hair in a slightly messy way.
