Just because ‘everyone’ wears a certain outfit doesn’t mean it looks good on you.”
Also, for example, you should remember that when a person is short and wants to look a little taller, it is important to take care of the cuts of the clothes: use your size: not too big and not too small – and avoid cuts oversized.
