Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered how your style became so plain and lifeless? We’ve all watched celebrities and became puzzled with their everyday polished looks that always seem to be on the point and head-turning.
When it comes to making excellent fashion choices, celebrities are usually guided by styling experts.
However, this doesn’t mean you’re doomed to a boring look that makes you blend into the crowd: you don’t need a personal stylist, just a bit of insight on how to make your outfit more eye-catching. Here’s how you can do that.
Rediscover The Clothes You Already Have
Let’s face it: you don’t even know what’s going on inside your closet. Many women have overcrowded wardrobes while they actually wear about 20% of what they own. We tend to wear certain items frequently while we completely ignore or forget other fabulous pieces misplaced in the back of the closet.
Make a selection and donate all the pieces that don’t fit you. Make space for new basic pieces that will function as a solid base for combining many different looks.
Essential Pieces To Look For
There are many celebrities that mastered the art of the minimalistic look and there are some great lessons hidden behind it. If you take a minute to study it, you could clearly see how important it is to have essential basic pieces that can be incorporated into different types of looks. This includes a LBD, a jacket, business pants, a pair of jeans, and a couple of blouses and shirts.
In addition to these, it’s good to have at least one full-length dress: maxi dresses always give you a dash of sophistication and elegance, no matter if they’re paired with heels or flats. With street style pushing the limits of fashion even further, a simple slip-on dress could be both a part of the formal look and a casual one: pair it with flats and a leather backpack, style a messy bun and add oversized Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses – and you’ll end up with a sexy-casual look.
Wear a pair of heels and a clutch purse, style your hair in Old Hollywood waves and you’ll become the queen of glamour.
Be Creative And Reinvent
You know the saying: it’s not what you wear – it’s how you wear it. Let’s say you own an oversized boyfriend shirt. You can style it in many different ways: tuck it in your business pants for an office-appropriate look and add a thin belt. Roll up the cuffs and add a bracelet or a nice watch. With leggings, your shirt gets transformed into a casual dress: wear a belt to enhance your waistline and unbutton a couple of buttons for a sexy vibe. Pair it with ankle boots and you’re done!
For a more feminine look, pair the shirt with an A-line skirt: roll up the sleeves to your elbows, add a string necklace – and voila!
Fashion has evolved, which means every piece you own can become a part of a differently styled outfit. Defining your personal style is a fun journey and you should be creative and playful while figuring out how to express your personality through your looks.
Upgrade Your Look With Accessories
Accessories have a transformative power and can bring your outfit from plain to eye-catching smart casual or even add a bit of formal to it. Choosing the right kind of jewelry is a great starting point, but think beyond just that: scarves, barrettes, belts, watches, even glasses can all help in bringing your outfit to life.
Pick subtle thin necklaces for a sophisticated look, or opt for heavy-detailed oversized ones to make a statement when you’re wearing a duo-chromatic outfit or an all-black combo. This type of jewelry will break the dullness of your look while providing you with just the right amount of chic.
With these simple steps, you can give your clothes a much-needed fashion CPR! The trick lies in combining the right pieces together while minding the materials and colors, as well as incorporating the right kind of accessories.
