It’s a sensational period of the year after all, which is why I have decided to make your day a little spicier by bringing to you, 6 fashion tips every woman should know to help you hone your fashion idea
1. UNDERSTAND YOUR BODY SHAPE
While we might easily get carried away with the beauty of clothing, and how they appeal to us, we should never forget to put our body into due consideration. You definitely don’t want to put on a fine apparel and end up looking like an errand girl going to get vegetables.
Crista G., a renowned fashion stylist in her advice for women on how to get clothing that suits their body shape states that, “The golden rule of stylish women? Fit first. With that, getting to know your body shape is key. Consider yourself a petite pear shape and prefer to highlight your shoulders? Build your closet with clothes that put the spotlight on your shape and favourite features”
#2. INVEST IN A CAPSULE WARDROBE
It is not enough to have a variety of clothing at our disposal, because sometimes, having a very broad selection can make it even more difficult to choose what to wear. So, whether you can afford a walk-in wardrobe as big an Olympic-sized pool, or you have a limited budget for your clothes shopping, you can invest in a capsule wardrobe that contains versatile and timeless that you love to wear and can mix and match in seconds.
3. ALWAYS PLAN AHEAD
You definitely don’t want to get stuck in the morning over what to wear, so it is really advisable that you always plan ahead of time over what you’ll wear. You can choose Saturdays to decide and plan out what you’d wear all through the week. And just as fashion expert, Amber F. rightly states,
“You can’t plan for everything, but don’t let your mornings catch you off-guard. Just like you’d plan a week’s worth of meals on a Sunday if you’re trying to save time, give outfit planning a shot to make way for stress-free mornings and outfit-regret-free days”.
4 LET YOUR DESTINATION DECIDE WHAT YOU’LL WEAR
We all get confused at times over the right outfit for a particular event or location. The little secret to overcoming this however is letting your destination decides for you what you’ll wear. Laying credence to this is stylist, Angela G.’s advice, where she states that, “If you’re ever on the fence about what to wear, consider your destination and who you’ll see. When in doubt, err on the side of being dressier. If you’re worried about looking too done-up, bring along a casual layer like a jean or cargo jacket to give your look that effortless chic touch”
5 LET YOUR FOOTWEAR SPEAK FOR YOU
If you were looking to give your looks a more pronouncing definition, then allow your footwear do the trick. “When it comes to footwear, colour, print and style packs a huge aesthetic punch—and they don’t have to be sky-high heels, either (flats can make the same statement and your feet will thank you). Even if your look is casually thrown together, adding a printed flat or a pop-of-colour wedge can make things appear more intentional.” —Stylist, Jennifer M.
6. USE SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media is inundated with so many women of fashion images and videos, just in case you need to see how certain outfits are been rocked, nothing stops you from using your social media to check them out I personally use Instagram or Pinterest, and trust me, I have never been disappointed, rather I get more inspired creatively.
