In the past it may have seemed impossible to balance, work, socializing, family as well as remaining stylish and up to speed with the latest clothing fashion trends. There are so many trends that are up and coming, it’s sometimes exhausting to keep up and also hard to know which trends will last and which will just be momentary fads. Here are 5 clothing tips that are easy to invest in.
- Accessorize to Create a Whole New Look
Accessories are often underrated when it comes to creating new and different looks. Adding a scarf, a pair of earrings or layered necklaces to a simple dress or t-shirt can change the way the outfit is perceived. Accessories are a great way to dress up or tone down your look. Simple accessory additions to your wardrobe is an effective way to add different textures, colors, and patterns to your style.
- Shop with Purpose
Save time and money by shopping with a distinct purpose of what you’re looking for. When buying something new, consider the different occasions the clothing piece will be useful for, make sure it fits you well and looks good from all angles. Invest in basics that you’ll use for multiple different outfit combinations, like a good pair of jeans. You’ll likely find it more beneficial to value the quality of clothes over quantity. Making fewer quality purchases will save you more time and money than investing in too many one-time pieces.
- Clear Out & Organize
Time and again it’s important to clear out and organize your wardrobe. Get rid of old clothes that don’t work for you anymore and you’re not using. They’re a waste of space and limit you from being able to see all clothing options. Clearing out is likely to make you aware of items you haven’t seen in a while and would like to wear again. Organizing what you do have will also make it easier and more exciting for deciding on outfit choices. Giving you more options for considering different combinations and new styles you hadn’t thought of before.
- Explore New Styles
Don’t limit your style by sticking to the same designs, color schemes, and patterns. Seek inspiration for new clothing combinations, read fashion blogs, follow fashion icons, and go shopping! Try different combinations and allow you to express yourself through the clothes you wear. Don’t be shy to try on an outfit you’ve never considered before, you may love it!
- It’s More Than Just Clothes
It’s important to realize that being stylish doesn’t only refer to what clothes you’re wearing. Consider your whole look when dressing up. The make-up you wear and the hairstyle you choose are also important contributors to your overall look, use these to compliment your clothing style. Express your individuality by trying different hairstyles as well as fragrances. The perfume you wear influences how others see you too. Smelling good will also help you feel good. Confidence is key! Be confident in your choice of style and others are more likely to perceive you in the same way.
