We all have those days when putting together an outfit turns into the toughest task. Not because we don’t have enough pieces (old and new) in our wardrobes, but because the brain just can’t figure the perfect ensemble that day. For all those days and others too, here’s the perfect guide to looking stylish effortlessly and all the time. Fashion blogger Carly Cristman and celebrity stylist Lindsay Albanese share their favourite tricks to looking fashionable and stylish by pairing things that are already kept in your wardrobe. Take a look.
#1) Get the right proportions
Both Carly Cristman and Lindsay Albanese suggest that even when you’re pairing a simple top with a pair of jeans, wearing them in the right proportion is the key to making it stand out and looking stylish. For instance if you’re wearing a boxy top, ensure that it is worn with something fitted.
#2) Lindsay’s Hip Tip
When wearing a simple outfit like a T-shirt paired with shorts, tuck the T-shirt into your shorts partially (called the Lindsay’s Hip Tip) to add an extra stylish detail. It defines your waistline and adds a personal touch to the outfit.
The ultimate guide to looking stylish even when you’re stressed is to go for monochrome. Pick one colour, black for example and go all black. The point here to keep in mind is pairing different hues of the same colour.
Accessories always up the style factor and there’s no reason one should shy away from them. Add a chunky choker neck piece to a plain dress or a dainty pendant to an outfit to put together a finished look.
#5) Know your favourites
It is always best to know about your favourite pieces in your wardrobe for those days when you just can’t fix yourself on one outfit. Best advice is to keep staple garments like a pair of blue denims, a little black dress and the perfect white shirt handy at all times to avoid confusion.
