Old-fashioned and clumsy: 5 winter wardrobe mistakes that make the look "cheap"
Have you ever noticed that it's harder to create outfits in winter than in other seasons? You need to take everything into account: the cut and color palette of the bottom layer, the relevance of outerwear, and the practicality of shoes. How do you make sure not to miscalculate?
Copy the looks of fashion influencers or, for example, consult with stylists/designers. Another option is to familiarize yourself with the most common fashion mistakes in the OBOZ.UA article and try to create your own outfit.
1. Skinny Fit and high boots
This stylization is not the best solution. First of all, Skinny jeans and pants have long been out of fashion (and it is not known when they will come back into fashion). Secondly, the combination of these elements emphasizes figure imperfections and "shortens" the legs (even if you have put together a total look).
How to avoid a fashion failure? Combine Cossacks or pipe boots with straight jeans or leggings. Another good alternative is flared/palazzo pants and low-cut boots.
2. Fur vest
This item is worn over a sweater, leather or light down jacket to stand out from the crowd and to make sure you don't get cold. In 2024, we advise you to abandon this "stylish" technique: it makes the image heavier and visually adds age to the wearer. It's better to buy outerwear that is guaranteed to keep you warm - a warm down jacket, duffle coat, eco-fur coat or sheepskin coat.
3. Sheepskin coat and ugg boots
Forget about combining these things. Together, they visually distort the proportions of the figure and add extra volume. In addition, they have similar textures - and the outfit looks boring rather than creative. Uggs are best worn with a fur coat or down jacket, and a sheepskin coat with Cossacks, insulated chelsea boots, platform shoes, or lace-ups.
4. Flesh and other light tights
Why are they also on the list of fashion taboos? Because of the effect of "bare" legs, which is inappropriate for winter outfits. Another unpleasant bonus is that they "create" an imbalance in the figure. We advise you to replace flesh-colored and light tights with insulated tights in dark shades, which always look impressive and status.
5. Miniskirt and short shoes
If you have already decided to complement your winter clothes with a miniskirt, do not forget about thick tights that contain wool. Shoes are also an important element. Short boots visually make your legs look shorter, so it's better to style the bottom with high boots or ankle boots.
