Like anyone, we fashion editors work diligently at perfecting our craft—we’re talking everything from staying abreast of the latest trends to discovering new styling tricks that ultimately make an ensemble feel unique and special. Essentially, we live and breathe fashion and notice every type of outfit that comes our way in the office, on the street, and everywhere in-between. As a result, we often spot everyday looks that could be taken to the next level with simple editor-approved tweaks.
Below, we’re sharing the fashion mistakes we often see, along with inspirational ways to upgrade said outfits.

Oversize button-downs are fashion-forward and cool, but you don't want to look like you're drowning. The easiest solution is to half-tuck your shirt or tuck it in all the way to give it shape.
Jeans bunching over your boots isn't always the most elevated look. Rolling up your jeans or going for a cropped style is the easiest way to streamline your outfit.
It's very noticeable when you're covered in all of the latest trends. It's best to focus on one and make that the hero piece so you don't overpower your overall vibe.
There is an art to rolling up your sleeves. You don’t want to simply scrunch them up, but roll them to right underneath your elbow to get that perfectly undone yet sophisticated look.
Fashion editors know how to balance their proportions. For example, you don’t necessarily want to wear a super-long top with a super-short jacket or the balance of your look will feel off and awkward.
You don’t want to cover up a great outfit with a boring jacket. It needs to be just as strong. If you need a warm layer, layer it under a fashion jacket.
While form-fitting tops can definitely work in some situations, a looser style is more on-trend and forward—especially during the day or at work.
