Fashion myths have been doing its rounds for decades now, and many people still believe them. These same people are too afraid to a commit fashion faux pas therefore follow these myths. Here we debunk some common fashion myths:
Myth 1: Never wear horizontal stripes
Truth: Horizontal stripes are fine if you have narrow shoulders, a small bust or narrow hips. If you have a large bust or hips, opt for solids or vertical stripes instead.
Myth 2: Baggy clothes hide unwanted curves
Truth: Baggy clothes do nothing to hide your flaws, but instead make you look even bigger. Instead, wear outfits that skim your body to create a slimmer silhouette.
Myth 3: Short women should not wear long dresses
Truth: I’m sure many women would disagree, but the common fashion myth is that short women should not wear long dresses. The key to pulling off a maxi dress is to choose dresses in lightweight fabrics and complement it with a pair of stylish heels – wedges are usually a great option.
Myth 4: If you have the correct size, the garment should fit you well
Truth: Different designers and manufacturers work with different size scales, therefore it is important to fit on the garment before you purchase it. Most designers work with averages, but we all know that every woman is different. Different styles in the same size fit differently from store to store, so don’t be afraid to go up or down a size to get the right fit.
Myth 5: Never wear denim with denim
Truth: It is perfectly acceptable to wear a denim jackets with a denim jeans or skirt, just make sure the denim is different washes.
Myth 6: You bag and shoes need to match
Truth: If you like the old-fashioned, safe look, go ahead and match. But if you want an ultra modern look a la Carrie Bradshaw, then try a hot colour combination. Just make sure you choose complementary colours or choose a colour from a blouse, dress or skirt you are wearing.
Myth 7: Leggings can be worn as pants
Truth: This is one fashion faux pas you don’t want to make. Leggings were meant to be a modern substitute to the traditional tights. Pair your leggings with a long tunic, blouse, or shirt dress, and do not wear it with a tiny t-shirt or anything that does not cover your butt.
