While no girl is safe from making the occasional style mistake, some fashion mishaps only need to happen once for the guilty party to quickly learn her lesson. Trust us—there’s nothing like spending the day in, say, the wrong bra or shoe size to remind you to never make such a move again.
Scroll through for seven mistakes the most stylish people may have made but surely won’t again!
After one day in a pair of heels that don’t fit (whether too small or too large), you’ll realize that no shoe (no matter how cute!) is worth the discomfort. Plus, not being able to walk in your shoes is never stylish.
In many situations, playing it safe is smart, but when it comes to your style, you’ll always regret opting for the safe and often boring outfit over the statement-making piece that’s in your closet and waiting to be worn.
A great outfit can easily be derailed by the wrong choice of undergarments. Be sure that your bra fits not only you but also the style of dress or top that you’re wearing. If not, you’ll have photos to haunt you forever.

While keeping up with trends is important, dressers should be judicious as to which ones they actually try—and invest in. Just because something is trendy doesn’t mean it’s worth a chunk of your shopping budget or right for your body. Trust us: There’s nothing worse than seeing a regrettable purchase hanging in your closet every day.
No matter your body type, there are going to be pieces that flatter you more than others. And once you figure out what those are, you’ll feel better wearing those things than if you simply try to emulate what you see others wearing. Need help figuring out your body type or what clothes are best for you? We have a guide for that.

The biggest mistake you can make when shopping is buying something just because it’s a brand-name item. Not only is it bad for your wallet, but also, blindly buying big brand names will cause you to miss out on some great under-the-radar finds!
There are certain instances, such as job interviews, where deviating from your go-to look is understandable—and sometimes necessary—but a date (even a first) is not one of them. Going on a date dressed as anyone but yourself will not only make you feel, and therefore act, unnatural, but it will also keep the person from getting to know the real you—and isn’t that the point?
