Someone who possesses great style seems to always be on top of the the latest fashion trends. But the truth is that owning the latest fashion trends do not make you stylish. In fact a good stylist would advise you to take an effortless and less trendy approach to everyday style—think well-edited pieces that are produced with care in beautiful fabrics.
In addition you do not need an abundance of clothing to be stylish either. The reality is it’s easier to put an outfit together when you have less to choose from.
~Dress in variations of the same shades. Wearing creams, camels, whites, and tans in an outfit is a good example of just how elegant wearing similar shades can look.
~Add just one bold color. If you dress monochromatically add just one bold color to your outfit. Wearing all black and adding a red handbag is a classic.
~Match your shoes to your handbag. I know this tips seems old-fashioned but on those days when you have got to pull your look together and can’t seem to get your styling groove on wear an easy top and bottom then grab a pair of shoes that match the color of your handbag.
~Pay close attention to the fit of your outfit. You can own the most expensive designer clothing collection but if those clothes don’t fit properly then they are a waste of money. Pants are especially problematic because they do stretch out. If they loose their shape after wearing them for a day take them immediately to a tailor.
~Wear your jacket or coat easily over your shoulders like a cape. There is elegance in simplicity and draping your coat, jacket or even sweater over your shoulders always looks effortlessly chic.
Find the perfect tee shirt bra . We all wear tee shirts often. And since they are made in lightweight and sometimes clingy fabrics a molded nude colored bra is the perfect foundation garment.
Always carry a fashion emergency kit with you. Missing buttons and a kicked-out hem are common inconveniences. Make sure you carry a few safety pins with you in your handbag. Another item worth adding to your bag are bandages for those unexpected blisters that can occur with a new pair of shoes.
Eat well, laugh a lot, and be chic!
