“You look beautiful.”
And then it’ll all be worth it in the end.
Want to make heads turn wherever you go? We’ll this is the place to be. Let’s learn a few fashion styles that will make you feel gorgeous. Ready to get rocking?
1. Accept who you are
Every individual is different. Whether you are petite or plus-size, embrace your body type. No matter what style you wish to adopt, select clothes that fit. That’s the number one key to looking your best.
Wearing clothes that are too small will showcase bulges while those that are too large will hang from your frame. Don’t get associated with a shabby appearance.
Invest in a few good quality basics. They will help you mix and match as well as stretch your wardrobe even further.
Create an elegant yet sophisticated vibe that reflects your personal style. Spice up your simple outfit with a classy handbag, minimal jewelry, a pair of shades, a dainty watch, or a custom leather jacket. More importantly, select a pair of comfortable shoes. And this leads up to the next topic…
3. Let your shoes make a statement
Research shows that you can say a lot about someone just from looking at their shoes. So when it comes to footwear, color, and style pack a considerable punch. From stiletto heels to wedges to flats, your choice is as good as mine. But for a polished look, finish off your outfit with a pair of shoes that make the same style statement as your outfit.
And if you’re wearing sandals or peep-toe shoes, showcase your pretty feet. For extra aesthetics, add some color to your nails. Though simple, clear gloss or nude colors work best, you can’t go wrong with a classic red.
4. Choose a variety of fabrics
Your wardrobe should constitute a diversity of materials so that you can design the ‘right’ look for any occasion. Whether you’re off to work, a Sunday brunch, a night out with friends, or even on vacation, your clothes represent who you are.
Invest in crucial timeless elements such as cotton, wool, linen, denim, and silk. These basic fabrics stand the test of time when cared for properly. But no wardrobe is complete without the essential black dress.
5. Wear the right colors
Identify your color profile. Is it cool, warm, or neutral? Wear hues that compliment your skin tone. Neutral skin toned people nearly always look good in every color, but warm-colored individuals may flatter in yellows or reds.
Typically, neutrals such as white, beige, cream, navy blue, black, and gray are a great place to start. However, a monochromatic style allows you to experiment with colors while letting you stay chic. When you’re comfortable, play around with bold patterns and prints that match your personality.
Additionally, incorporate pieces of clothing, namely scarves and handbags that complement your eyes and hair.
6. Never overexpose
You want clothes that show off your sexy figure. But there’s a fine line between being sexy and going overboard. Dressing classy requires a bit of modesty. And there are numerous ways through which you can look stylish and sexy without showing too much skin.
So if you want to dress to impress, avoid midriff-baring tops, revealing low décolletage, and miniskirts. Watch out for loose armholes that don’t conceal your bra.
7. Did I mention makeup?
You’ve paid attention to the details. There are no holes in your clothes, and they’re wrinkle-free. Usually, the next thing people see is your face… and your expression says it all.
But besides that, just a little makeup can freshen you up in minutes. Don’t have the time? Well, you can spare 5 minutes. Focus on three key areas: eyes, cheeks, and lips. Apply mascara to open up your eyes, some blush to bring life into your cheeks, and a vibrant lipstick for a pop of color.
Didn’t take long at all, did it?
And when you want to go all out, head on over to the nearest salon. Don’t undermine the power of a pretty mani and Pedi!
8. Spend time on your hair
This is one of the basics that you can’t go far without. No matter how well you dress, a sloppy hairdo just won’t help you kick ass. A sleek bun or ponytail can instantly transform your mien.
Ideally, get a haircut that is easy for you to style every day and one that you love as well!
9. Infuse with your scent
Just as your personality guides your fashion sense, so does the fragrance you choose. It defines who you are. If your style includes daring, bold prints, you need a spritz to suit. Those who prefer silhouettes and dainty details opt for soft floral scents.
But it’s okay to go outside your comfort zone and get noticed. Instead of blending into the background, how about shaking things up once in a while. A new outfit with a matching perfume just maybe what you need to break free. There’s no harm in trying something new.
Ready for a style upgrade? Just remember, you don’t need a lot of money to look classy. Invest in quality fabrics so that they last longer. Buy accessories so that you can instantly change your look from time to time. But keep things balanced so that they don’t overwhelm other aspects of your clothing.
Learning what it takes to elevate your style to a more sophisticated level is a skill that you can adopt in no time. All you need to do is carry yourself with confidence.
And last but not least… remember to smile 🙂
Let the beauty from within shine through.
