Use your best features to a fashion advantage. You will feel more confident in your fashion sense if you use it to show off your long legs or your narrow waist. This also keeps peoples eyes off the parts of you that don’t look so hot. Wear a boat-neck shirt to show off those beautiful shoulders or a nice skirt to show those gams, for example.
Own a nice large set of black sunglasses. If you have red eyes from a rough night or under eye bags from a poor night’s sleep, you can hide them with a stylish pair of sunglasses. They are a classic, glamorous style and evoke Audrey Hepburn or Jackie Kennedy. A nice pair can be had at a good price.
Embrace your imperfections. Although society says that we should all look a certain way, the truth is that our imperfections really make us beautiful. For instance, think of Cindy Crawford and her mole. She just would not look the same without the mole, and it actually makes her a beautiful, unique woman. Everyone has some type of imperfection, even if you can’t visibly see it.
Accessorize with bright colors. If you want your wardrobe to pop but find colorful prints and pastel colors in clothing too garish, you may find a solution in accessorizing. On its own, a black button up shirt and dress pants are bland. A red pair of shoes and handbag, however, can really make it stand out.
Avoid mom jeans! Aging is going to happen; however, your fashion sense does not need to age as well; it just needs to evolve. Incorporating extra, unnecessary denim, does nothing for your look. The key is to have jeans that fit at the waist, and accent areas that you are proud of.
Patterns are quite fashionable: mix and match them freely. A floral dress is a great accent and can improve your style if you add this to your wardrobe. Remember that if you are going to wear patterned clothing, you need to accessorize with patterns as well.
Pay attention to the fabrics your outfits are made of. Be sure to note fabric composition on the inside tags of clothing in the store. Just because the item fits you well in the dressing room, doesn’t necessarily indicate that it will still fit once its washed. If the materials are cheap, likely to shrink or fray easily, do not waste your hard earned money.
How to apply your makeup depends on where you are going. For example, if you are going for an interview, keep your makeup looking natural and highlight your best feature. For instance, if you have beautiful eyes, wear a soft color that enhances the color of your eyes. If your best feature is your cheekbones, add a little color to the apple of your cheeks.
Drinking filtered, pure water will help you avoid cracked nails and dry cuticles. Dry hands are typically caused by dehydration. If you live in a cold climate, this becomes especially important. Use shea butter once or twice daily to moisturize your nails. Really dry skin can be treated with a thick layer of cream at night, topped off with a pair of gloves made of cotton.
Remember that belts should serve as accent pieces, rather than necessary tools for holding your pants up, and have fun with them. Skinny belts are perfect with dark denim and dress pants, especially in animal prints or shimmery metallic. Wide belts look great over dresses, cardigans and other pieces that you’d like to look more fitted.
