In this article, I’ll talk common winter fashion mistakes and how to correct them.
Mismatched Shoes and Clothing
Your shoes have their own distinct personality. Your complete outfit will be improved with the correct shoe. Everything will be ruined by wearing the wrong shoe.
I’ve found that the personality of your shoes is determined by the toe shape.
Think about shoes with a bigger toe shape, for instance. The bigger the toe, the more masculine the shoe will look. That explains why wearing it with a feminine garment just won’t look right.
Switch to a toe shape that is more slim, such as the pointed toe. Since the majority of the items in my closet are feminine styles, pointy toe has always been my go-to choice.
However, some of you find pointy toes uncomfortable. Opt for a rounded toe in that situation.
Not that shoes with a bigger toe shape can never look good. You can pull it off, but you’ll need a bold outfit. Switch to a motor jacket, and this is the outfit that complements your shoes the best.
Loose Top and a Loose Bottom
It’s so comfortable to wear loosely-fitting bottoms like jeans and pants. Additionally, they can make you look incredibly stylish and are a statement piece.
But precisely because the leg shape has so much volume, it’s challenging to layer on top of them when the temperature drops a bit.
It’s really difficult to look good if you pair it with a relaxed-fit sweater blazer since it can age you and make you appear larger than you are.
Switch to a sweater top that fits more closely to your body instead. The volume in the leg shape is immediately balanced, so it doesn’t need to be tight. You’re going to look more sophisticated.
Tight With Tight
The opposite of what we just discussed is this. Another typical mistake we encounter in the winter is this one.
For this time of year, skinny jeans are a must-have because they go best with tall boots and over-the-knee boots.
However, I have noticed that because skinny jeans fit so closely to your body, your lower half will appear quite slender. Therefore, you need something on top to make it more balanced.
If you are skinny, it might not look too horrible when both your top and bottom are tight against your body, but it does appear unbalanced.
Instead, choosing a top or jacket with a looser fit can keep your ensemble looking more put together. Additionally, it is more forgiving.
Let’s now talk proportion.
Longer skirts look dressier, but they are not the most attractive proportion if you leave your top out and cut your body in the middle.
Instead, you ought to add a belt and roll the top up. It’s much better that your body is now divided into thirds.
The same is true for a medium-length skirt. Making your top shorter has a significant impact. It instantly makes your outfit look better.
Coat Not Long Enough
Since this is such a typical mistake when it comes to layering in the winter, I have to reiterate what I’ve written in my other articles.
The bottom of your skirt or dress will protrude under your coat if you’re wearing longer skirts or dresses and your coat isn’t long enough to cover it. This doesn’t look good at all.
Your entire outfit looks destroyed because of the horizontal line that the fabric underneath is giving you.
Make sure you’re covering at least the majority of your skirts or dresses with a longer coat. Your skirts or dresses may be so long that you are sometimes unable to find a coat long enough to provide the necessary coverage.
It still might work if there is a tiny bit of your fabric showing under your coat.
Too Long Coat
Hold on, you just said that your coat shouldn’t be too short, so what gives? Yes, but that was in reference to skirt and dress outfits.
Let’s take a look at winter outfits that include a coat and jeans or other pants.
The longer length is not always the better.
I found it most difficult to wear jackets that were thigh-length since they might easily make you look older.
This can only look worse if your coat lacks any definition at the waist, which can make you appear frumpy and shapeless.
Make sure your coat has a belt if it is longer. One of the nicest coats to wear in the fall and winter since it offers you a very feminine touch is a belted coat. Additionally, it immediately elevates your proportion.
The eye will regard everything below your waistline to be your legs because this belt will indicate where your waistline is.
Going shorter is a great additional option. Choose a cropped jacket to wear. It doesn’t have to be incredibly short. It could be around your upper hips. The most youthful length that may instantly improve your outfit is this one.
In addition, I’ve discovered that this length is the most versatile for jackets in the fall and winter. because they are simple to match with any bottoms you have in your closet.
They look great when paired with your pants and jeans. Additionally, they look great with skirts underneath.
