Keeping up with the latest trends in fashion and taking your style to the next level can seem like an insurmountable feat. Keep in mind though, that fashion is like anything else. You can get most of the way there with just a few basic principles and some straight forward tips. Find some of them below!
When coordinating your outfits try to use at least one accessory or item that is going to make a statement. I can either be a stylish bag, flashy earrings, a necklace or other piece of jewelry, etc. Anything that will add some pop instead of just plain.
Go Beyond Your Limits
We often fall into routine in our lives. Especially when it comes to fashion. Its always good to try new things whether it be colors you dont usually consider or overhauling the style you’re aiming for completely. This is the only real way to grow in your own style. If you’re rotating the same few items from your wardrobe over and over you aren’t learning what works for you and growing in your taste and judgement.
Your intent to be fashionable should be legitimate and at the forefront of your mind. Follow stylish role models on social media, blogs, and other outlets. Learn from them and follow in their footsteps. Style role models are a good way to get inspiration for coordinating your own looks and help you feel more comfortable with trying new things. If you’re roll model can pull something off, then you can too!
Consider the Feet
Even if you simply throw together an outfit without much thought, or you have on something really basic, the right shoes can be a game changer. In fact, its almost better to let the shoes be the star of the show sometimes and not have the clothing itself be the focal point. Style, print, and color when used in the correct combinations can pack a real punch visually. Keep this in mind when choosing shoes.
Play to your strengths
Knowing what kinds of things work for you and your body is essential. The most important role in fashion is “fit first”! No matter what you’re wearing or how much it cost you, if it doesn’t fit properly it wasn’t worth it. You want to build your wardrobe around pieces that put the spotlight on you and your figure. This doesn’t mean that everything you wear needs to fit tightly. Be in touch with your body, measurements, and proportions. These are all important components of style.
