Organise and Edit Your Closet
When it comes to dressing stylishly, organising and editing your closet is essential. After all, how can you create a great outfit if you can’t even see what you own? Start by decluttering your wardrobe and donating or selling anything that you don’t wear or love. Then, organise the remaining items neatly into categories. Hang what should be hung and fold the rest. Also, invest in a shoe rack so that you can easily visualise complete outfits. After doing so, your closet will feel much more inspiring, and you’ll nix those “nothing to wear” moments.
Find a Good Tailor
The work of a good tailor can make even a bargain wardrobe look designer. While you may not initially want to spend the extra money to get items altered, you’ll quickly learn that the extra wear you get out of them far outweighs the cost. Whether it’s a pair of jeans that have been hemmed or a dress that’s been taken in, nothing beats a garment that’s precisely fitted to you. Another great tip is to get your tailor to change cheap buttons to fancier styles. Doing so will make all your jackets and coats look infinitely more luxurious.
Curate Your Colours to Suit Your Skin Tone
Have you ever wondered why some colours look great on you and others don’t? It’s because of your skin tone. To ensure every outfit you wear looks amazing, try filling your wardrobe with the colours that flatter you the most. If you have a cool complexion, shop for garments in colours like white, black, grey, silver, and blue. If your undertones are warm, on the other hand, stock up on designs in shades of brown, yellow, gold, olive, and red
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix Patterns
Patterns are an excellent way to add some life and fun to your wardrobe, and mixing patterns is even better. So, if you’ve been sticking to basic block colours for the past ten years, now’s the time to be bold and embrace checks, stripes, florals, gingham, and more. Just remember to make sure that your patterns complement rather than clash.
Invest in Styles that Work for Your Shape
Having an endless supply of outfits that look great on you requires strategic shopping. In particular, investing in designs that work for your body shape is essential. If you’re not sure what clothes work best for you, have a look at the most flattering items you already own. You should shop for other pieces with the same silhouette and have fun experimenting with different fabrics, colours, and embellishments while maintaining the confidence of knowing that you already look fantastic.
Don’t Forget to Accessorise
Adding accessories should be the final step to completing all your outfits. Whether it’s something as simple as a belt or as decadent as lashings of necklaces, accessories have the power to transform your look from good to great. It’s important to invest in good accessories and remember to wear them. Stylish shoes, bags, hats, sunglasses, and jewellery are essential items to own and wear for a fashionable finishing touch.
