Underwear mistakes

Underwear has many benefits, but it can seriously ruin your look if worn incorrectly.

Underwear shouldn't be the first thing someone notices in your outfit; it should do its job in the equivalent of visual silence.

Keep those boxers tucked in.

If wearing an undershirt, it should not be a bright colour (yellow, pink, turquoise). That would be shouting "look at me, look at me".

It should not be showing, poking out from your shirt, performing a version of the child's game of "peek-a-boo."

It should not be causing unsightly ruffles around your middle, making you and others wonder if you had a burger and fries too many. 

That's not the way to wear this all-important layer.

Instead, choose a purposefully designed undershirt made from a sweat absorbing material.

An undershirt either has a deep v neck to remain hidden under open shirts.

A good undershirt is close fitted and made long in the body to stay tucked in and prevent any bulk from ruffles.

Quick tips to prevent the visual shout:
1) Keep all your brightly coloured T-shirts in your drawer unless you're wearing them alone or under a thick hoodie, a chunky knit turtleneck, or a poncho
2) Buy enough undershirts to last you all week, so you aren't tempted to pop on that unsightly T-shirt.
