Here are eight things you should consider doing if you want to always appear stylish:
Create a Capsule Wardrobe
With tens of beautiful clothes in your wardrobe, do you think they can create a fashion signature for you? We recommend that you have amazing wardrobe staples to get you started. What do we mean? You should have the following:
- An iconic little black dress
- A fitting pair of jeans
- A classic blazer
- Simple T-shirts
- Neutral colours button-downs
- Leather jacket or denim jacket
When you have a capsule wardrobe, which consists of mix-and-match basics, you find smart ways to combine them.
The Clothes Must Fit Well
No matter how expensive and good your item of clothing might look, a bad tailor would leave it in a terrible shape. We have seen beautiful fabrics come out cheap because the tailor had no idea how to transform the beauty it on their clients’ bodies. When you have a good tailor, you will look comfortable and more polished.
You don’t want to step out with dragging pants or outfits that awkwardly bunch up. With a good tailor, your work of looking stylish is almost done.
You Should Balance Proportions
A simple trick in looking stylish is to learn how to balance proportions. When you have the right outfit dressed in the right proportion, you create an aesthetic harmony. Therefore, you don’t come out looking awkward.
You should ensure you wear clothes that fit your body shape. A step away from your clothing not balanced in your body is a bad fashion sense. Ensure you find the right clothing, especially when you want to combine different outfits.
Discover Your Personal Style
You want to look different from who you are when you rock that outfit. Everyone wants to have a personal style that makes them stay unique. While it can take some time before you can create your signature style, you should not stop experimenting until you find that signature.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to discover your personal style. Sometimes, you don’t know how good you might look in an outfit style except you try it. In addition, don’t base your personal style on categories “menswear” and “womenswear” shouldn’t when you shop.
We recommend that you spend time when selecting your outfits based on your body shape and the outfit colour.
Learn How to Shop Better
It takes practice to shop better. Therefore, when it comes to shopping for your fashion accessories and items, you must not rush. You should find what makes you look good and try to hear what others have to say about your fashion sense. If you don’t have an idea of what you wear, it might be challenging to shop better.
When you have a wardrobe filled with the right pieces, it becomes easier to look stylish when you rock them,
Don’t Forget A Belt
Don’t ignore a belt if you want to appear stylish. Sometimes, a belt can make the difference in your outfit. For instance, when you rock a billowy midi skirt and a long a cashmere sweater, a belt can be your ticket to looking good.
Play With Colour
A common mistake many Africans make is not understanding how to combine colours. You may have the right outfits and still look out of place because you didn’t combine your colour well.
You don’t want to appear like a shade of many colours or the wrong colour shades. If you don’t know to blend your outfit colours, you can begin with a colour until you can comfortable rock two colours . A colour wheel could help you pick the right colours if you don’t know colour picking.
Learn How to Mix Textures and Patterns
Do you know patterns and textures could ruin your fashion sense if you don’t blend them perfectly? If you want to make a bold fashion statement, you should learn how to combine textures and prints.
You can begin with neutral patterns like your strips and the low-key textures, which could come in the form of leather and knits. Furthermore, you can include clutch, tie, or scarf in your sequins.
