Fashion is basically magic; it can cover up bulges and even take a few years off when executed properly. However, if you don’t know what you’re doing, a single fashion mistake can do the opposite and age you 10 years (or more). Even if you *think* you're following the rules, like wearing black to slim your waist, you could still be committing a fashion don't; after all, the rules of fashion change constantly. Here are 10 common fashion flubs to avoid and tips on how to fix them!
1 of 22 Choosing Too-Long Skirts
As we get older, our hemlines inevitably get longer. But it is possible to wear skirts that are too long. While a skirt that goes all the way to your ankles can potentially be done the right way (if you're tall or rocking sky-high heels, for example), you could end up doing more harm than good by making yourself look frumpy. Instead, choose skirts that hit right above or at the knee.
If you prefer wearing maxi skirts, keep an eye on your styling. With a relaxed-fitting skirt, opt for a structured top or a nicely tailored blazer. If your maxi skirt fits closer to the body, choose a looser blouse. Just make sure that the length of the top isn't so long as to ruin to proportions achieved by a long skirt.
