6 SIMPLE TIPS FOR EVERYDAY STYLE
It’s not always about parties and other formal gatherings that one wants to look stylish. How you dress in your daily life is going to affect your personality because people who see you regularly make an opinion about your personality. It’s not just the formal occasions at which you meet new people rather you can meet your new friend anywhere, anytime and that is why you need to be prepared for that.
There is a subtle distinction between looking stylish and looking flashy. It’s alright if you look flashy at parties but in everyday life, it sounds weird. Most people want to look smart and beautiful and also want to maintain a casual look. It’s not only a beautiful formal skirt and jacket that is going to give you a sharp look. There are many other casual looks in which you will feel comfortable, elegant and thus more confident. Here is a list of 6 such tips that will make you look more stylish
1. Aim for Innocence
If you want to look well dressed in a unique way, you should aim for innocence and not for a flashy and immature look. Innocence is something that immediately persuades others to give you some respect and appreciation. Innocence is actually attraction personified.
It must be mentioned immediately that it doesn’t mean at all that you should avoid colors, instead, your dressing should be the amalgamation of elegant fabric cut sewn like most classic dresses, while at the same time maintaining the necessary amount of colors. Only you need to look a little like a sophisticated girl by avoiding dressing like a teenager unless you really are a teenager. You should dress like Greek goddesses, that is to say,your natural beauty should reflect more.
2. Avoid Graphic Tees
The first thing to do if you want to look elegant is avoiding your graphic tees. I know it’s a temptation to wear such tees but, seriously if you want to look sophisticated, you should avoid wearing these. Everybody loves to wear graphic tees, and if you too wear them, you will just get lost in a crowd without any particular distinction. People will consider you a child who doesn’t want to grow up.
If you don’t believe, just look at the movies. In movies the most charming girls don’t wear Tees at all, instead, they wear dresses, therefore, don’t wear such graphic Tees. Most charminggirls dress in a sophisticated way, even if casual. You will see, the only ones wearing graphic Tees would be children or flashy teenagers. You can wear casual shirts or polo shirts occasionally; they look much more beautiful.
3. Choose a Good Pair of Jeans
You can’t look more casual than if you are wearing jeans. There is nothing wrong with wearing jeans as long as you pick the right one. You should avoid baggy jeans because indeed, you don’t want to pull up your jeans every five minutes. You should choose a pair of jeans that isn’t pooling around your ankles. You also need to avoid flashy embellishments – no bleaching and no stripping.
Above all, there should be no logos on your jeans, anywhere. Just pick a pair of jeans that is straight and simple. Pick a dark blue color and choose a size that fits you best, and believe me, you would look gorgeous.
Jeans are not the only option for your legwear. You can also pick a pair of chinos as long as the color is not flashy. Avoid colors like red; choose camel, gray or army green colors. Most people do not wear color below the waist. If you are wearing colorful legwear, it will distinguish you from the rest.
4. Rethinking Your Foot ware
All of your dressing is useless – even if it is elegant and charming – if your shoes are dirty sneakers. There is a need to replace your sneakers with something more elegant and classic. And, don’t just think that nobody notices your shoes; everyone does, especially men and your fellow girls.
As most people suggest, there is no need to spend thousands of dollars on your shoes. You can also find many classic shoes at moderate prices.Try ankle boots and you will look sharper. If you think, ankle boots are too formal then try some gateway shoes. These leather shoes will give a classic look. You can also choose desert shoes which offer the comfort of sneakers but are more appropriate and casual.
5. Learn to Love Layering
Sometimes it is difficult for many persons to match clothes; therefore, they avoid layering altogether. Layering can make the dullest clothes sharp. And there is no need to go shopping for the thread to thread matching for layering; you can also do it with simple clothes. Layering gives more detail to the outfit and thus making it sharper.
For other suggestions about layering and the choice of your outfits do not pay much attention to the fashion world because it will confuse you even more. Trending fashions and fashion world are suitable for those who are obsessed with trends. If you are a regular person, you shouldn’t pay much attention to trending – actually, you should avoid it.
Instead of trending clothes, you should pick ones which are classic and timeless. Such clothes will retain their popularity even after ten years. Focus on the wardrobe pieces that are timeless.
6. Decorate Your Wrists
Decorating your wrists or fingers is another way to make your dull-looking outfit sharper. Choose a leather watch or a leather band for your wrist. You can also choose classy rings for your fingers. Empty wrists just don’t look right.
You shouldn’t shoot yourself up in whatever you hear about fashion. For instance, if you hear about wearing accessories, do not end up wearing necklaces. Do everything in moderation.
Choose simple, subtle and elegant outfits and you will look perfect.
