Many of us are guilty of spending a lot on fashionable clothes to get the ‘look’ we see on instagram or in magazines, however it’s easy for this to backfire. Hands up if you’ve ever ended up feeling like you’ve tried too hard and not felt your best?
Everybody wants to look great, but many people struggle to find their own style and feel confident in it. The thing is, style isn’t about expensive clothes – or the latest ones. It’s more about how you put clothing pieces together and how good you feel wearing them.
Choosing pieces you like and feel comfortable in will emanate from your persona so that you radiate confidence from within. Your style can speak volumes about your personality.
If you’d like to uplift your style, here are five fashion tips to follow!
#1 – Opt for a classic jewellery piece
The one thing that can truly make or break any outfit is the right jewellery. A stunning piece of jewellery can instantly transform your everyday style, whether you are wearing a casual tee with denim jeans, a sundress, or a suit.
For example, pearl jewelry will never go out of style. It’s an instantly stylish addition to any casual or formal look and it suits women of all ages and skin tones. Pearl jewellery is available in all shapes and styles, all of which have the power to add sophistication to your look, no matter the occasion.
#2 – Be disciplined when choosing your outfit
Finding clothes that fit properly and flatter your body type is an important aspect of elevating your style. Why? Fitted clothes make you look well put-together and more elegant. So, when it comes to choosing your outfit, avoid the temptation to wear items that two sizes too small or too big – only go for clothes that fit you.
Also make sure you consider how the top and bottom half of your outfit work together so the pieces complement each other and balance out your proportions.
Additionally, try to choose the right colors for your look. Go for colours that mix and match aesthetically to avoid creating an outfit that is more clown than classy.
#3 – Embrace statement pieces
Taking risks every now and again with your clothing will help you elevate your fashion game and potentially find new ways of dressing that make you feel confident and powerful. This may mean experimenting with new colours, patterns, unique materials, and unusual accessories to express your creativity.
Bold statement pieces such as a brightly coloured blazer, a patterned shirt, customised jeans, or unique accessories can instantly uplift your style from drab to fab.
Keep in mind though, that trends for statement pieces change quickly so you may need to update your choices a lot more to stay current, versus opting for classic and timeless garments.
#4 – Invest in your beauty routine
Besides improving your everyday fashion style, investing in your beauty routine is well worth the effort. Our hairstyle, skincare, and makeup choices are just as important – if not more important, as the clothes we choose.
No item of clothing will beat radiant, healthy looking skin, healthy hair and the confidence that comes with it. This combination will go a long way in elevating your physical appearance and making you feel like a million dollars.
So, whether you’re going to work, meeting your friends for brunch, or grabbing a drink over the weekend, great skin and the right make-up will immediately make you feel polished and stylish.
#5 – Consider Your Personality
It is important to accept and understand your own personality if you really want to create a personal style that’s all your own. Never force yourself to conform to fashion trends if you don’t like them or they just aren’t ‘you’. Instead, your clothes should inspire genuine confidence in yourself because they are a true representation of your personality.
Truly stylish women know that style is not about expensive clothes. It’s more about how you style the right pieces and how you put it all together.
Last but not least, personal style is also a reflection of how well you look after yourself. It’s true that improving your health and appearance will help you be more confident before you even set foot out the house in the morning.
