While the world may be leaning toward more casual attire, there are still a number of fashion mistakes and faux pas you need to avoid regardless of the occasion or dress code. They include:

1. Wearing The Wrong Colors

All skin tones are not created equal. The lime green or hot pink that you saw on the runways may look fabulous on the models, but horrible on you. Experiment with different colors and stick with the palettes that look best on you, regardless of what’s “au currant”. Don’t waste your money on clothes that make you look pale, sallow, jaundiced, or washed out. You may even want to consider color analysis if you’re uncertain which are your “best colors.”

2. Wearing Too Small a Size

If it doesn’t fit, don’t wear it. Squeezing into a size 8 may feed your vanity, but it will may you appear overfed to everyone else. Shop by FIT, not by size. If you can’t sit down or feel as trussed up as a turkey, you’re not going to feel your best.

Why put yourself through that kind of torture? Find clothes that fit or have them tailored to fit and stack the cards in your favor.

3. Inappropriate Makeup

Light for day, heavier for evening, sheer for sports or other strenuous pursuits. You wear different clothes for different activities in you life; your makeup should change as well. And if you’re still doing Cleopatra eyes, it’s time to turn the page and see what’s happening THIS century in makeup styles.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next.

    I keep my nails professsionally done so there's no worries in that dept. I where black stockings because my interview suit is black and so are my shoes. My hair has gray in it but I feel that I earned each and every one of them so therefore I don't want to color it. It shouldn't be about your hair anyway. It should be about what's under the hair and inside the head that counts.

    thank you so much, little things that we forget along the way.......May I add.A few of my pet hates...eating while talking on the phone......ignoring the person in front of you whilst talking on the phone, having a private conversation whilst someone is waiting to be attended to..not excusing yourself to answer a telephone call..(business of course) greeting someone with a smile..regardless of office politics...Telephone manners are never taught,

    "Sarah T said: NEVER should anyone clip their nails while sitting at their, desk its disgusting!

    Yes! I've had to endure that many times. I guess this is the wrong forum to talk about disgusting things, but two other really annoying things are: 1) constant snorting without blowing your nose (were they ever taught by their mamas to blow their nose?). 2) yakking on the cell phone while on the toilet and then flushing...and still talking."
