It’s a wonderful feeling to look good (totally!).
If you are in a fashion slump like me and need a little help, it’s hard to know where to get the right information. What is flashy and what is classic? The point is about picking the pieces that flatter you no matter what the season is.
Looking great does not have to cost a fortune. If you want to build your wardrobe but don’t have the funds to get the look you’re after, check out your local thrift and consignment stores. These stores offer a plethora of fashion options at a fraction of their retail price.
Only buy clothes that are flattering to your figure. Do not think that you must have every fashion trend that is available, even if it does not look good on you. No matter how trendy an item is, if it is not flattering to your figure, don’t consider buying it.
Look inside fashion magazines to get an idea of what you should be wearing for this season. You don’t have to get clothes that directly match what the latest fashion is. However, you can form a style that is very similar so people may know you are up to date with the latest fashion.
Pack mostly neutral colours of garments when you travel so you will be able to mix and match them. Using only a few garments, you can create outfits that will never look tacky. Use scarves and belts to accessorise for a more pulled-together look.
One great fashion tip to try out is throwing on a scarf. This is a great tip because the scarf can almost be considered the ultimate add-on due to the amount of colour combinations as well as how easy it is to put one on. They are also extremely portable.
When purchasing jeans, go for timeless looks. For example, classic straight leg or boot cut jeans never go out of style. Opt for either of these styles in either a dark denim or slightly faded to remain in style throughout the years. By opting for these styles, you will always be in style no matter the current fashion.
Use many colours when creating an outfit. You do not want every piece to match perfectly, that is not the point of fashion. Instead find ways to create creative colour schemes. For example, a purple dress can be matched with yellow, silver, black or green accessories. Just have fun with it.
Did you know that drinking more filtered water can actually help you to prevent dry, cracked nails and cuticles? Dry hands are typically caused by dehydration. This is more prevalent during winter. Moisturise your hands on a daily basis with a little olive oil, shea butter or conditioning cream. You might want to use gloves after you apply the butter to ensure that it does not rub off.
Many people do not understand how to wear a jacket properly, and it makes them look silly. If you are going to sport a jacket, you need to wear it appropriately to look good. You must always remember that the bottom button on the jacket is not meant to be buttoned. This will keep you from committing a fashion mix up.
Avoid gaping button-down shirts with a bit of velcro or tape. For a permanent fix, sew small strips of hook-and-loop between the buttons across the bust of the shirt. If you aren’t handy with a needle and thread, you can also use small pieces of double-sided tape. Be sure to remove it before washing the shirt, though.
If you are looking for a way to look better, hope my insights of being a fashion forward gal inspires you on improving your style. Get out of that fashion slump and start choosing looks based on your inner diva. You will find you look better than ever before and feel better too.
