You can become your master stylist by following a few tried and true strategies. Gain self-assurance in your sense of style by following fashion ideas for accessorising each look in your closet.
1. Make the most of a minimal wardrobe
A classic leather jacket, a pair of well-fitting trousers, a well-tailored blazer, some well-fitting T-shirts in neutral tones, and a few neutral-coloured button-downs are all essentials (or denim jackets). The trick to always looking stylish is buying a few versatile pieces (and learning how to dress them).
2. Make sure everything you wear is a perfect fit
Hiring a skilled tailor is a surefire way to improve the overall appearance of any article of clothing. Clothes that have been expertly tailored look better and feel better. Neither baggy pants nor a dress with bunches in the middle will make you look fashionable. Once you’ve established a capsule wardrobe that works for you, you may start to experiment with oversize and undersized pieces without looking or feeling sloppy.
3. Study the art of Proportional balance
Fashioning your clothes so that there is a pleasing balance between them is what we mean when we talk about proportion. You can accomplish this by donning garments cut in a way that emphasises your body’s natural curves. Then, keep the remainder of your outfit fitted when you want to create a fashion statement by wearing garments that are too big or have an unusual cut. For example, try a tight crop top with flared jeans or a puffy shoulder top with skinny pants.
4. Develop your unique flair
Though developing your unique style may take time, a mood board is a great place to start. It’s essential to keep in mind that doing new things with your look is part of the fun. Don’t let labels like “menswear” and “womenswear” limit your shopping options; experiment with different colours and cuts to determine what flatters your figure.
5. Develop your Shopping skills
To avoid having a wardrobe full of clothes you never wear, you must learn how to buy certain goods. When your closet is complete with items you adore, putting together an outfit will be a breeze.
6. Put on a belt
Putting on a belt is a simple yet effective technique to elevate your style instantly. It’s also a terrific way to tame the volume of a billowy midi skirt or long cashmere sweater.
7. Use colour as a tool
Start small by adding just one bright piece and sticking to neutrals if you’re hesitant about wearing colour. You’ll find the colour schemes that complement your taste as you gain experience working with them. Look at a colour wheel to get some ideas.
8. Combine different textures and patterns
Don’t bother trying to coordinate your purse with your footwear anymore. It’s a fashion statement to wear contrasting textures and patterns. Learn what works best for you by adding sequins and paisleys in little amounts (like a scarf, tie, or clutch), starting with essential pieces in neutral patterns like stripes and low-key textures like leather and knits.
