We live in a world where fashion options are endless. That means it can be easy to get overwhelmed with the options available. Your wardrobe might be an assortment of different colors, textures, and trends, which can leave you feeling undecided every morning.
However, there are a few tips that can help you to look great every day. From designing your color pallet to finding fabulous jewelry online, here are some things you can do to hone in your style and always look chic.
Ignore the Trends- Invest in Timeless Classics
When you go into fast fashion, trendy places, that rule can be hard to follow. You go in to pick up an essential pair of leggings, and you end up leaving with piles of clothes that will only work for one season (because, of course, they were having a huge sale, and it would be rude not to)
Buying things on impulse is a lot of fun. Still, no matter what, the money you save not picking up yet another dress or multipack of stud earrings that everyone will be wearing, why not spend that money on one timeless piece such as a multi-purpose black dress that can be worn to the office or the bar, or a classic leather jacket?
A good pair of well-fitting jeans, some flats, and trainers should be a wardrobe staple worth investing good money in.
Second-Hand is Your Best Friend
One of the greatest fashion lessons you can learn is how to sift through racks of clothing at thrift stores or vintage markets. It might take some time, but it will pay off when you train your eyes to be able to pick out treasures among the…other stuff you often find in these places.
Older clothes are often designed and made to last, with much better construction, and quality than the cheaper clothes made these days. If you look hard enough, you may find yourself a bargain.
Dry cleaners and tailors are going to be your best friend-especially if a stain is salvageable or ahem needs taking up. There’s nothing that can’t be fixed, and if these defects drive the price down a little, then that’s even better!
If you find an item of clothing that is just a little bit too big or small, then there’s always going to be a DIY way for you to be able to fix it.
Look Through what You Already Have
When you’re looking to find your chic aesthetic without breaking the bank (or even leaving the house) is to look through what you already have to hand. When was the last time you had a clear-out of your wardrobe? Next time, rather than being ruthless with your wardrobe cull, have a look at what you already have that can be used as a part of another outfit. You may surprise yourself with just how many black t-shirts you have that can be used as a base for plenty of other outfits!
