When you take a look at your wardrobe, do you have a thought that “I have nothing to wear”? Surely you do. In order to dress stylishly, it’s not necessary to spend all of your salary on clothes.
Your personal color preferences, your type of figure, form of activity, lifestyle and sphere of interests will give a starting point for creating your own unique style.
So, first of all you need to pay attention to a Wardrobe Staples.
The wardrobe essentials are neutral pieces that you can easily combine with the others. For example it could be a neutral-colored Pencil Skirt or Cigarette Trousers which depending on occasion you can combine with a conservative white shirt or a Boho Style Blouse. Little Black Dress should become a must-have piece of the basic wardrobe – in fact it can help you out in almost any occasion.
However, avoid buying the same things.
This way you will produce the impression that you are in the habit of wearing the same things for years. At least it’s boring. Do not be afraid to experiment. If your wardrobe is too monotonous in color, add a couple of color accents to it. Do not be too keen on the conservative clothing – a romantic Floral print Dress or a Polka dot Blouse will surely cheer you up.
It is better to eradicate the habit of impulsive shopping.
Do not succumb to advertisements and do not blindly follow fashion. Clothes should serve you and emphasize your best sides. First of all, you must feel psychologically comfortable. If, for example, a skirt is shorter than you like, you will feel insecure and it is unlikely that this skirt will become your favorite. Or maybe you will never wear it at all. Buying a new thing, you also need to remember all the other components. It is not very practical to buy, say, a fashionable Crop Top, if later you have to pick up pants, shoes, a jacket and so on. And after all you will understand that the high-waisted bottom and an open belly do not match you well.
Love yourself for who you are!
Do not buy smaller sized pieces. Cast away illusions – clothes that are small, play a cruel joke on us, and visually add a couple of extra kilos.
Do not buy very cheap clothes.
It is better to buy one quality item instead of ten – “disposable”. Usually cheap clothes are made from low-quality fabrics, which can even harm your health. What can i say about fitting? And what will become of it after the first wash? Oh no, it’s better not even to imagine it.
Dress according to the occasion.
It’s not a good idea, for example, to wear Gladiator sandals for an official event, and Stiletto heels for a beach party.
Do not run to extremes.
I adore Lady Gaga, but as we know, where is a whole Stylist’s Team job behind her every look, and what’s good on the stage is not suitable for a trip in the subway. In everyday life you should give preference to practical and comfortable clothes.
Do not forget about accessories and shoes.
After all, if you complete the same Little Black Dress with sneakers and a leather jacket, and make a ponytail, you can safely go for a walk or for a coffee with your friends. But in combination with the gold Stiletto shoes, clutch and an evening necklace – it will be a perfect look to go to an official event.
Remember the words of legendary Coco Chanel – “Fashion passes, the style remains.”
