We’re sure that if you’re a woman who exists you have come across style advice at least once in your life. Whether it was from your annoying aunt or that creepy colleague at work, you must’ve tried it. Well, we’ve gathered a bunch of tips and tricks to follow if you actually want to take your fashion game to the next level. This is because when it comes to fashion and style, there are only a few rules and limits.
- Match Colors
Have you ever heard of black as a slimming color? Well it’s true. Our first tip involves matching your separates, that is, your bottoms, stockings and shoes. Doing this instantly makes you look slimmer. However, if you don’t feel like wearing all items of the same color, you can always make things pop with a brighter pair of shoes. Darker colors are always more flattering. But remember not to go too overboard as you might end up looking a bit gothic. Unless that’s what you’re going for, then you do you!
- Expose Strategically
Showing skin through outfits is a personal choice that everyone makes. Some women like to show certain amount of skin and some do not. That is completely fine. However, sometimes things can take a turn towards being “too much”. This because the secret behind looking effortlessly sexy is knowing just how much skin to bare and on which part of the body. Why this works is because there is something left as a mystery. In a magazine published last year, a top stylist recommended showing only one part of the body off per outfit.
- Choose the Right Jacket.
We don’t talk enough about how important this is. The right jacket for every outfit determines the final result. For example, a baggy or ill-fitted jacket makes for a disaster if you want the outfit to flatter your figure and shape. Choose ones that reach to your hip and are sleek looking. What you can also do is select a jacket that is tapered or tailored at the ends for a classic and sophisticated look. Whatever type of jacket you prefer to wear, make sure it is tailored to suit your body type perfectly.
- Accessorize with Bright Colors
Black is truly coming up as the color everyone wants and wears. Are you the neutral outfit girl? Then say no more, because we have something that can make your outfits pop. If you are used to usually wearing neutral clothing, try amping it up by choosing a bright colored accessory. Maybe a bag or statement necklace? This can really take the attention away from your boring outfit and give it the pop that it needs. You can also add different accessories in complementary colors to be even more bold. Overall, if you’re a person with more of a basic taste, find some bold and funky elements you can add to your style.
- Add Heels With Your Jeans
A way you can dress up your favorite pair of jeans is by adding some heels to it. A ton of celebrities are known for making this the ultimate semi-formal outfit. If done right, you will have the perfect outfit that flatters you in all angles. All you have to do is tuck your shirt in, wear your favorite pair of denim and add your most gorgeous heels too! And voila, you will be a strutting goddess in no time.
- Embrace Your Shape & Silhouette
The biggest celebrity inspiration for this is definitely Kourtney Kardashian. She is mostly known as the shortest sister of the Kardashian clan. However, her style game is strong. Kourtney has inspired many women to embrace the shape they were born in and alter their style accordingly. This involves researching a lot. Find out what silhouette suits you and work on that. For someone like Kourtney, who is petite and shapely, avoiding billowy maxi dresses are best. Stick to things that have a defined waist instead.
