The Biggest Style Mistakes We Make Without Realising It

Even the best of us are prone to a style mistake or two now and then. Yes, even fashion girls are guilty of say, wearing a too-small shoe size (sample sales!) or pairing the wrong bra with an outfit. Sometimes it just takes someone else pointing it out for us to see the light. That's why we decided to figure out some of the most common mistakes women make—as well coming up with the best ideas for fixing them.

Read on to see which styling mistakes made the list and shop the items that will help you avoid making them ever again.

If you find that an item doesn’t fit you quite right, taking the extra time to get it tailored is totally worth it. Just a small tweak can elevate a piece and make you look more put together. Pants especially are an easy fix, so keep those hemlines from dragging on the ground.

Instead, make the look intentional with a pretty lace bra like this:
