First things first, style “mistakes” are obviously subjective to the viewer (and the wearer), but they are still fun to talk about nonetheless. We’ve all looked back on outfits we’ve worn and thought What the heck was I thinking? This story right here is here to ensure we have fewer of those moments as time goes on. While possibly internally humiliating, “mistakes” can be looked at as learning opportunities as we let our sense of personal style continually evolve.
Learning about these style mistakes is something that clearly takes time, which is why we reached out to 54-year-old industry icon Grece Ghanem for her take on the matter. As the well-seasoned and fashionably wise influencer she is, Grece was kind enough to share with us the top four style mistakes that always make her laugh when she spots them. Don’t worry, she accompanied each mistake with a style tip relevant for any age. Personally, I agree with every word she said, and I have a feeling you will too. After all, she’s has a tad more experience in the sartorial world than I have so I am definitely taking notes.
