Every girl wishes to look and feel fashionable. Dressing right makes you feel good and appear extremely confident. In the world of fashion, there are plenty of options available for everyone of any body type, skin colour, height and other physical attributes.
With all these options open to you, all you need to do is pick your own style and make a unique statement. However in an attempt to look cool, don’t make mistakes that make you look worse and add years to your look. Here are five such common mistakes.
The wrong choice of clothes
The biggest fashion faux pas is choosing outfits that make you look older than you actually are. For instance, Kurtis in sober colours, falling loosely over your body may give you that pseudo-artsy look but they add almost ten years to your actual age. While you are young, experiment with various available styles.
If you are into ethnic wear, try patterns and colours that are meant for youngsters. Fresh colours like yellow, orange and turquoise add so much appeal to your personality when compared to boring pastels. Here, both Aditi Rao Hydari and Deepika Padukone choose colours that are dull and sober and thus they look much older than they actually are. On the other hand, the vivalicious Shilpa Shetty looks youthful in her red saree and so does Sonam Kapoor.
If you like a western look, you have so many options. Choose dresses, skirts, tunics and other styles instead of a boring white T-shirt or, even worse, a shapeless black T-shirt and blue jeans

The wrong fit
The fit of your outfit is the key to the way you look. Never wear ill-fitted clothes. This rule applies to clothes that are too loose as well as to the ones that are too tight. Remember, wearing loose clothes does not hide your problem areas; wearing the right clothes does. Depending on your body type, choose clothes that will add value and give you a beautiful silhouette.
Never neglect your footwear and accessories. Your shoes should never be mismatched with your outfit. Slightly heeled footwear gives you good posture and makes you look taller and slimmer. If you are unable to wear heels, make sure you have stylish flats that go well with your outfits. If you wear slippers and roam around in parties – it is sure to make you look “ancient”.

Forgetting to accessorise
Accessories can be used to pep up boring outfits. Choose long chains, hoop earrings and even stylish finger rings. How can we miss the bag, which is a favourite among youngsters? Carry a bag that is big enough to fit in all your belongings and trendy enough to make you look like a million bucks.

Ignoring internal health
Fashion is not just skin deep. So, do not neglect yourself. Taking good care of your skin, your body and your fitness levels will ensure that you look good in anything that you slip into. Healthy skin and hair makes you look much younger than you are.
