"Clothes that don't fit never look good—whether they are too big or too small."

  • Do something with your hands.:
"Don't just leave them hanging! Put them in your pockets or on your hips, cross your arms...basically anything is better than just having them hang there."

  • Your outfit should make you pop.:
"When picking colors, it's best to avoid really crazy patterns and colors that are too close to your skin tone. Pick something that provides a nice contrast to your skin."
