Spring is the season for bringing out the fresh fashions and trying new things. But a little bit of experimentation aside, it's easy to get so caught up in the excitement of the season that you take things a little too far. If you want to stay on the safe side, avoid making these common spring fashion mistakes.
Short skirts or shorts: If you're going out in public, it's always a good idea to avoid shorts that are too shorts. Yes, they draw attention, but it's not going to be the type of attention you want. If you want to go with the skirt or shorts look, go with a longer style. It's classier and more fashionable.
Too much denim: Denim is the perfect material for the transitional seasons, but it can be troublesome if you try to wear too much denim at once. Wearing your jean jacket and your jean shorts all at the same time creates a type of retro '80s look that never was fashionable and probably never will be. So, when it comes to denim, remember that a little goes a long way.
The nightwear look: Over the last few years, designers have been coming out with frilly or lacy tops and bottoms that are supposedly meant to be worn out in public. While this may be fine for the fashion runways, it's not exactly the classiest look in the real world. In general, it's always a good idea to wear your nightwear in the privacy of your home, and to wear your normal clothes during the day. Otherwise, you'll get baffled looks when you go out.
Skin-tight jumpsuits: For whatever reason, jumpsuits have been fighting to stay on the pro side of spring fashion for a few years. If you want to go with this look, it's best to avoid jumpsuits that are skintight throughout. This just creates a strange Catwoman style that makes you look like you're dressed up for some weird event. Instead, wear loose-fitting jumpsuits with a tank top or t-shirt underneath, and mix it up with a belt.
Pleated pants: Pleated pants may be fine on the spring fashion runway, but in the real world all they do is add the look of extra pounds to your body. For a light and breezy look, avoid the pleats and stick with loose, comfy trousers.
Too-clunky shoes: Spring is the season to bring out your stylish shoes and show them off to the world. But it's important to be careful not to get shoes that, while they may be fashionable this season, are going to look ridiculous in any other year. The best types of spring shoes are those that are light, simple, classic.
Mixing too much: In the spring, we all like to mix things up a little bit, and some of us even like to see how far we can push our different colors and accessories. But while dressing for spring can be fun, try not to cross the line. A little bit of print is all you need for a single outfit.
