There's no doubt that fashion is fun. Plus, it's a great way to show your personality in a creative way, too! But while fashion is more often than not, a free zone for girls to channel their different style characters, you still want to look presentable, fashionable, and nothing short of amazing while having fun. So, to help make sure that you always look stylish, and feel one hundred percent confident in what you're wearing, we asked the stylist behind Liza Soberano's now iconic look from the 2016 Star Magic Ball, Perry Tabora to list down the ten things every stylist wants you to stop doing.

  1. Stop overdoing it.

This may sound cliché, but less is really always more. There is beauty in simplicity so, don't go overboard with patterns, layering, and in accessorizing. The simpler the look is, the chicer and classier it will be.

  1. Don't follow fashion trends to a tee.

It's tempting to cop your favorite star's OOTD, or jump into a new trend’s bandwagon, but if the trend doesn't suit your body type and personal style, then you'll just end up with an outfit that's not flattering and you don't feel confident in, too. Always incorporate your own personality in your fashion choices because this is what will make you stand out.

  1. Stop overthinking about your outfit.

Easier said than done, but fashion is not trigonometry or calculus. Fashion should be easy and fun! So, don't pick on your OOTD. If you're happy with it, then wear it with absolute confidence!

  1. Stop wearing black all the time.

Yes, black is chic and sleek, but don’t be afraid to add a little bit of color to your looks every once in a while to spice things up!

  1. Don't limit yourself to just expensive clothes.

A true fashion girl knows that labels aren’t everything. Great buys from vintage stores or thrift shops will give your outfit that effortlessly classic touch, and at an affordable price, too.

  1. Don't be afraid to repeat your outfit.

Being afraid of being labelled as an "outfit repeater" is so passé! Be an Anna Wintour or a Kate Middleton who are fearless in repeating their favorite OOTDs.

  1. Stop matching and start mixing!

For a no-fail chic formula, always mix basic with one fashion trend for a classy, but modern look for the day.

  1. Don't be skimpy and stay classy.

One common misconception about being sexy is that one has to dress up in skin-tight or skin-baring clothes. Always keep in mind, Candy Girls that sometimes, not showing skin is a lot sexier than showing too much flesh.

  1. Stop overlooking the small details.

Everyone focuses on the dress, or the top, or the bottoms, but supporting actors like shoes and accessories can also make or break an outfit!

  1. Stop worrying about what other people will think and just do you!

There is nothing more fashionable than being true to your unique aesthetic, Candy Girls!
