Understand Your Personal Style
Some would say, it’s crucial to understand your personal style. Which one resonates with you: minimalist, bohemian, classic, rock, or trendsetter? Personally, I don’t fit in a particular box, but I appreciate elements from various styles (except trendsetting which is not my thing at all!).
Knowing what you like will serve as your guiding light when putting together outfits. And if you’re really not sure take time to explore different styles (Pinterest is a great source) and identify what resonates with you the most.
Pay Attention to Proportions
Tweak the clothes
Clothes are designed to be generic, they are supposed to fit so many body shapes, but tweaking helps make them for your unique body shape.
Accessories can transform an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. Whether it's a belt, earrings, or a handbag, choose ones that complement your outfit and express your personality. They are the finishing touches that tie your look together.
Play with colours
I find pairing colours is a simple yet effective way to style an outfit. For example, if I wear black pants and a white top, I add a black belt, white sneakers, and accessories with black stones, like earrings or a necklace (or both!). The same principle applies to other colour combinations, such as a green dress and green necklace.
Confidence is Key
No matter how well you style your clothes, confidence is the ultimate accessory. Wear your outfit with pride and carry yourself confidently. When you feel good in what you're wearing, it radiates through your demeanour and leaves a lasting impression. Following the above steps will also boost your confidence.
Adapt to the Occasion
Remember that different occasions require different styles. You will need to adapt your styling choices according to the event or situation you're attending, whether it's formal, casual, or a business meeting.
Styling clothes is an art that allows you to express your personality and creativity. It's about crafting a visual story with your wardrobe, turning everyday clothing into a reflection of your unique style. By understanding your preferences, experimenting with combinations, and paying attention to details, you can elevate your fashion game and master the art of styling.
So, don't just wear clothes; style them to let your outfit speak volumes about who you are.
