Fashion is a beast. It’s brutal and unpredictable, but if you try hard enough, you can tame it. Just be sure to avoid these aesthetic potholes and you will be the belle of the ball.

So fasten your seatbelts and cinch up your box dresses — here are 10 fashion mistakes everyone has made.

 

The Undershirt

Nothing ruins a good sweater more than a crinkled undershirt. That’s when a well-pressed undershirt on top of your sweater comes in to save the day!

 

Only The Basics

Being too out there is definitely detrimental, but avoiding risks altogether is a recipe for a bland wardrobe. Be sure to diversify with stunning heels, scarves, or a waistband accessory that we’ll get to later…

 

Single-Colored Chic

Wearing one uniform color is bad, but that doesn’t mean you should shy from matching colors. Having a wardrobe that is different shades of the same color looks beyond amazing.

 

Not Cinched

There’s nothing worse than a bad box dress. However, before you go and clean them out of your closet, cinch them at the waist first. Suddenly, a bad box dress becomes great!

 

Crinkled Collars

Nothing screams “unprofessional” more than a crinkled collar. Trust me when I say that the iron is your best friend.

Clean folds look wonderful – especially when it comes to your pants…

 

Doesn’t Drape

Diply

Wearing your jacket isn’t out of style, but draping it over your shoulders is so in. It’s great for the fall season because, when the cold comes knocking, you have your jacket at the ready.

 

Too Prim, Too Proper

Diply

When you’re looking a bit too uptight, the half-tuck is the way to go. It instantly makes you look more comfortable and loose – but what about the full tuck?

 

Believe In The Belt

Diply

Ah, the belt. There’s nothing more versatile than this beaut. If you need your outfit to hug your curves, this is the definite answer to all your worries.

 

The Terrible Tuck

Tucking is great, but one gone wrong is a common travesty in today’s fashion landscape. However, if you add a knot at the end of your blouse, the tuck suddenly becomes a cinch!

 

Your Jeans Aren’t Cuffed Up
