The ability to dress stylishly every day no matter where you’re going to is a luxury some people, unfortunately, don’t have. Whether it’s to an occasion, an interview, or your workplace, these tips are sure to make you stand out.
1.) Learn how to balance proportions:
To create an overall aesthetic harmony, you must learn how to balance proportions. This simply involves wearing clothes that fit your body type. Balancing your tops with your trouser or skirts is an important aspect that every woman should learn. Runway models wearing a completely loose-fitting or tight outfit may make seem easy but top-down combinations require the right balance to produce a stylish look. Try wearing a fitted or crop top if you are wearing wide-leg pants or a full skirt, if you’re wearing a loose shirt, try pairing it with tight pants or a puff-shoulder top with straight-leg pants.
2.) Find your style:
One’s style is an experiment that may take years to develop. However, you can start your journey to discovering your signature style by creating a mood board. When shopping for outfits, take your time to play with the different colors, designs, shapes, styles, and patterns to find out what suits your body best.
3.) Become a better shopper:
Start shopping for clothing styles that suit you best. When you learn how to shop for the kind of clothes you want and that fit your body type, it will help you reduce the number of unwanted clothes in your wardrobe and selecting outfits will be much easier rather than having a closet full of clothes you would never wear.
4.) Add a belt:
A belt is a great accessory you want to make any outfit look more stylish. For tops and bottoms that look rather awkward together, a belt is a good trick for bringing balance to the outfit.
5.) Play with color:
If you are not familiar with colors or how to mix them to produce a stylish look then you can begin with just one colourful piece while keeping the rest of your look neutral. With time, you’ll get more comfortable with colors and learn which color combinations work best for your style.
6.) Mix patterns and textures:
If you are the type that loves to pair a red top with a red shoe and a red bag, it is time to stop. Say goodbye to the days of matching your handbag to your shoes. When you clash textures and prints, you make a bold fashion statement. If you don’t know what patterns work for you then start small with neutral patterns like stripes and low-key textures like leather and knits, adding in the sequins and paisleys in little amounts (say a scarf, tie, or clutch).
Also, try choosing one focal design and accenting your outfit with another. Alternatively, you can opt for two patterns with matching or complementary color palettes. Mixing patterns is a great way to add more style to your outfit and make your wardrobe look fashionable. So, if you’ve been sticking to basic block colors for the past ten years, this is the time to be bold and embrace checks, stripes, florals, gingham, and more but don’t forget to ensure that the patterns complement rather than clash.
