Some people say there are no rules when it comes to fashion, but truly there are some fashion faux pas to avoid. Preston Tait joined us to share the important do’s and don’ts of Utah fashion.
- Wear a real watch to special events
Avoid wearing your sport watch or smart watch to special occasions because it looks unprofessional and unpolished. Tracking your steps in great, but do it in your normal day-to-day routine, rather than for professional events. You can buy a cheap, nice looking watch, almost anywhere, for under $30. Stick to a simple gold or silver metal watch.
- Wear simple jewelry and let one piece be the star
Understated jewelry is refined and tasteful. If you want to wear a statement piece, make sure the rest of your jewelry is petite and simple. Don’t wear a statement necklace with a pair of statement earrings. When it comes to jewelry, less is truly more.
- Wear maxi dresses with structured fabrics
Do not wear jersey material maxi dresses. The fabric clings to the body and it’s not flattering on most body types. Buy maxi dresses with a fabric that will lay over body, rather than cling. Look for maxi dresses that have a tie to synch in your waist.
- Stop wearing spaghetti straps layered with a white t-shirt underneath
Wearing spaghetti straps on top of a white t-shirt looks very juvenile and not age appropriate. Avoid buying spaghetti strap pieces if you dress more conservative and instead, buy short sleeve dresses and rompers.
- Wear darker colored leggings
Avoid wearing big, bold patterned leggings. The big, bold pattern will only make you look larger than you are. The darker the leggings, the more slender you will look. Also, remember that leggings are never a good replacement for slacks or pants and never wear flesh-toned leggings.
