Don’t you LOVE those reality shows, like, What Not to Wear, or 10 Years Younger.
Its really amazing that the women who get picked for the makeovers, usually have NO CLUE that they look bad.
In case you haven’t taken a look at yourself in a while, check out this list below to analyze your chic factor and make sure you not guilty of any of these style faux pas.
Are you stuck wearing your favorite old t-shirt and jeans? Time to trade them for something else. Believe it or not, it IS possible to look good and still feel comfortable. Just getting a cute running around sports outfit that matches will make you look and feel better.
If your outer coat is boring, you’re missing some fun. Your outer coat is where you should show your personality. If you find one you like, buy it and then enjoy all the compliments that will come your way!
Say no more… that’s a no brainer. Especially if you like to wear red lipstick, your teeth will even look more yellow! Ouch! FYI. Those white strips at the drugstore work well, so no need to spend a lot of money.
Ask your kid or if you don’t have one, find one around to ask. They will tell you if you’re hip or not. Big is in, so you should have some that are large with wide sides.
We are seeing a lot of women over 40 out there with very dated looking purses. Ladies, wake up and get a fun new bag. Oversized is in and will perk up your outfit and hip factor instantly!
Ugg, its Uggs
If your wearing Uggs, just know that so is every other teenager out there. Yes, they are comfortable, but there are other styles and boots that will achieve the same thing. Stay clear. At your age you don’t want to be competing with the younger crowd.
Make-up, too much, too little, just right?
Here is what we are seeing: The bad: Too much eye-liner, frosted lipstick, blue eyeshadow. Too Little: Not wearing makeup is just as bad as too much. At least, please use under-eye concealer, a natural lipstick and draw in your eyebrows. Just right: You should be natural looking but still wearing make-up. That means foundations, blush, lipstick, mascara, eyebrows, etc…. Yes it’s work, but its worth it!
Skip the jean skirt
Do you still have a jean skirt from years ago? Are you still wearing it? Toss it and get a great pair of dark jeans instead.
The tiny necklace
We know… your husband, friend or parents, gave you that tiny necklace and you still wear it for sentimental reasons. This year, especially, is the year of the chunky and large necklace. Keep your tiny one in your jewelry box for now.
Chewing gum is not an accessory
When you chew gum in public it is not attractive and can ruin a great outfit! It will totally ruin any look you’ve worked so hard to put together.
