Fashion is an art, and you are the canvas, paint carefully!
Every girl fancies herself as a runway model who gets to wear trendy, stylish, and expensive clothes. Yeah! We’ve all been there. Looking at those fashion magazines, hovering about the latest trends, and envisioning yourself being on one of the covers, it’s all there. And if you are one of those, then this article has everything to make you look like a diva for your Insta followers.
First of all, you don’t need to wear expensive clothes or master complicated styling trends to look fashionable. It’s all about the choices you make and what actually makes you look good. And that’s what we are here for.
After reading this article, you’ll realize how those Insta models and bloggers come up with some out-of-the-box styling ideas as if it’s their second nature. We had a few tricks up our sleeves to share so that you can adopt a chic dressing style without spending countless hours in your closet. So, without wasting any more of your time, let’s roll right in!
Start with colour coordination
What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you pick an outfit? It’s definitely what colour combination will look good to you. Right? Because of this, you might have ended up wearing the same combinations every day. So, try visiting the colour wheel and assemble your outfit with some unique color combinations. In fact, you can also try contrasting colours and mixed tones to level up your outfit.
Also, make sure that you pick at least two to three colours to give a unique base to your outfit, and then choose some funky accessories to match your outfit. And by colour coordinating your makeup, you’ll definitely look like you’ve pulled together different pieces and created a masterpiece.
For instance, try pairing your pastel-pink blouse or a bralette with jewel-toned green trousers or yellow earrings with a purple dress. The combinations might sound bizarre at first, but they can make you look like a diva after you try them on.
Pair like a pro
How many times have you found yourself wearing those same boring combinations every day? Wearing a matching pantsuit or a coordinated skirt set and picking up the right shoes to match your outfit is what you’ve been doing until now.
Try stepping out from your comfort zone and pair your luxe blazer with a Persian print T-shirt and finish the look with your all-time favourite denim jeans. This “high-low” and casual look not only looks effortless but also makes you feel comfortable and “dressed up,” regardless of where you are heading. With your unique pairing choices and combinations, you’ll never have to wear the same combinations again.
Mix and match unique textures and patterns
The contemporary fashion era is all about embracing funky yet classic patterns and textures. Although prints never went out of style, the buzz about trending ones in the fashion world is high now more than ever. Now, you just need to pile on a bunch of different fabrics and coordinate in one chic look—these unique patterns and textures such as animal print, suede, floral, leather, etc.
In fact, you’ll be surprised to know that Persian Clothing is so much in style right now. The artists work at their level best to create and design a unique pattern on every piece of apparel so that you feel like it is made exclusively for you. That’s so cool! You can also make a bold choice by opting for a Persian print kimono. Try draping it over your everyday outfit to make your outfit look much more appealing and subtle.
Monochrome is so in style
If you feel that you don’t have the vision or time for a perfectly coordinated outfit, then opting for a monochromatic outfit is the best bid for you. This means that you just have to pick a single hue, and you’ll be all set to cradle the world with your easy breezy outfit.
The outfit is a blessing for the ones who don’t have time to stand in the closet and coordinate the outfit. You just have to choose a colour that suits your body, and that’s it!. The best part of this head-to-toe outfit is that you don’t have to worry about spending too much time and money.
Play with proportions
Suppose you are one of those blessed people who are confident about their body and don’t shy away from showing a bit off. In that case, playing with the proportions is something that can help you make the ultimate fashion statement you always longed for.
Try pairing a bralette top with your oversized jacket or a bulky top with ripped shorts and see the change for yourself. But don’t limit yourself to small and big shapes; you can always explore with different textures, materials, and varied silhouettes. Fashion is all about mismatched proportions that somehow fit together and make you look chic.
Experiment with footwear
Now that we’ve told you everything about how to wear and rock your outfit like a pro, it’s time to take a sneak peek at your footwear drawer. Do you see anything monotonous?
See, even if you are a sneaker person and love wearing it every day, you have to learn to embrace others as well. For instance, try swapping your sneakers with high heels, and you’ll notice that you are already being showered in compliments for your outfit.
Basically, you need to choose the opposite of what you’ll generally wear, and the world will be the ramp waiting for you to walk.
Use accessories to outshine
Last but definitely not least, you need to have matching accessories to add a finishing touch to your outfit. And yes, it is much more than carrying a matching purse or wearing jewellery.
Remember, the idea is to make a statement by creating a well-defined and clean look without cluttering it. Try wearing a hat or put on your favourite sunglasses that goes well with your outfit. It’ll make you look trendy and dashing instantly. Keep it minimal otherwise, you’ll end up accessorizing too much than needed, and that was definitely not the plan.
By now, you might have realized the fact that being fashionable is easier said than done but certainly not impossible. So, unleash the inner fashionista in you and rock the world with your stylish outfit choices.
