When you dress up, keep one article of your clothing or accessories as the focal point of your look. Do not try to wear all the statement pieces in one outfit. Draw attention to your choker necklace or chandelier earring or a beautifully embroidered top; don't try to wear all these together. Don't let each piece of your outfit scream for attention, rather let them get the attention they deserve. Gone are the days of coordinated necklaces and earrings with heavily embellished outfits, Minimalistic Chic is the way to go now!
Sin 2: Visible Panty Line

Nothing is a more put-off that a VPL from under the skirt or a tight fitting trousers, especially the ones in lighter colours like white or nudes. If you know, that you are going to dress up in fitted/ light coloured pants or skirts, it’s a good time to invest in some seamless panties. These will help to give you a smooth and polished look without revealing what’s there underneath.
Sin 3: Wrong Bra Size

Almost 80% of the women are guilty of wearing the wrong size of bra. As it is said, the foundation is most important part of any structure; and for our outfits, the bra forms the foundation. Wrong size of bra could make you look flabby and heavier in the middle. Wearing the correct size becomes as important as wearing one. If you are unsure of your size, get yourself professionally measured and do it every 2-3 years or whenever you go through a milestone like pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause etc.
Sin 4: Too Much Cleavage

Showing off more skin than required does not transform one into a fashionista. The amount of cleavage that is shown in your dress can transform you from sensual to trashy, so make sure there is just a hint of what is there rather than showing off everything that is there.
Sin 5: Following Fashion Blindly

Wearing something that does not suit you but is the current fashion trend is the worst crime that one can commit. Understanding yourself better, knowing your body shape, your personal style and also your personal colouring can help you make the right decision without becoming the slave of fashion. Always remember- You should look Stylish and not a Style Victim.
Sin 6: Wearing Oversized Clothes to Hide Your Plus Size Body
If you are on the heavier side, there will always be a tendency to wear clothes that are oversized. Wearing clothes that are a size or two bigger will make you feel even big and should be avoided at all costs by chubby women aiming to hide their voluptuous body.
