Boring Or Bad Tattoos 

Tattoos have become incredibly popular as of late and more people than ever are choosing to permanently style their bodies with awesome artwork. One thing to be aware of is that you can make a bad decision with your choice of tattoo. For instance, a lot of men are being criticized for opting for tribal tattoos which don’t mean anything to them and are not part of their culture but they think look cool. Other people just get bad tattoos because they choose the wrong artist. You need to make sure that the tattoo artist you choose has the right tattoo supplies to provide fantastic final results for you. 

Clothes That Don’t Match Your Body Shape 

Next, you need to think about your clothing choices. It’s important to choose clothes that match your individual body shape. If you don’t do this, then you can end up in a situation where your style looks cheap and hides the best part of your body. For instance, a fitted suit is always going to look better compared to one that hangs off the shoulders. You might also want to consider opting for clothing that accentuates features that you are proud of. For instance, if you feel more confident with your lower half, then it makes sense to choose items of clothing that make an impression here. An example would be a killer faux leather skirt or wet look skirt that catches the light. 

Large Squares 

It’s important to note that patterns can have an impact on the perception that people have of your body. The patterns and styles that you choose can make you look larger or smaller. If you are self-conscious about your weight, then you need to make sure that you avoid large squares. These are always going to make you look frumpy and larger in general. Instead, you should think about smaller patterns on your clothing. 

The Wrong Jeans 

Finally, you need to make sure that you are not picking the wrong pair of jeans for you. Jeans are always going to be a popular item of clothing. They can accentuate your curves and show off your figure in all the right ways. However, you do need to think about key details such as the right cut. You should also consider going for a size that is one smaller than is comfortable when choosing jeans in-store. If you don’t do this, then the jeans are going to stretch and this will completely ruin your look. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the key mistakes that you can make with your fashion choices and that you should try and avoid them as much as possible. If you take the right steps here, you can guarantee that you always look incredible. 

Iconic Look: Alicia Keys Signature Look

Hey Fashion and Style lovers! I am starting a mini series which will be showcasing iconic looks from celebrities. The series will be all about signature looks of celebrities and how they have rocked them over the years. I am starting this new celebrity fashion miniseries to add something new to Fashion and Style Police and I am full of stylish ideas already. The first celebrity I am featuring on this new Fashion and Style Police miniseries is the lovely Alicia Keys! I am a huge fan of this talented beauty. Her songs are amazing and she is drop dead gorgeous. I love her sense of fashion and I can see myself wearing majority of what I see her rocking. When it comes to music, fashion and beauty, Alicia Keys is the real deal!

Keys’ signature look should come as no surprise. We all know her with her cornrows on and she makes them look so cool! I remember rocking her cornrow style many times while growing up. They were cool back then and are still cool now in 2021. I don’t see this iconic look ever going out of her. Keys’ signature look is right up the street for many.

Then in 2001

The beautiful Alicia Keys looks lovely then and now. I cam hardly tell the difference and the fact that the pictures were taken 20 years apart is almost unbelievable. She has not aged at all and those braids are still so trendy. This beauty is one of the few celebrities that can keep a look trendy for over 20 years and still counting.

What do you think of this iconic look? Are you a fan of Alicia Keys’ signature style? Please sound off in the comments section below. Thanks for reading, sharing and commenting. Have a lovely day wherever you are and stay safe.


Colouring Books for Women

Hey peeps! Happy Friday! I have recently fallen in love with colouring and I am really enjoying it. Colouring for me is very relaxing and therapeutic. I try to find time to colour every week. My daughter is so into colouring and she colours beautifully. I think I have now caught the colouring bug and it is helping me loads. If you are stressed, tired, bored or you just need to keep yourself busy and relaxed at home, I would recommend you get a colouring book and see how you get on with it. If you asked me some years if I would ever get a colouring book, my answer would be a clear no. I would say I won’t have the time or desire to colour, but life has changed so dramatically and I now find myself enjoying things I wouldn’t have dreamt of trying.
