Fashion is all about renovating. Trends evolve in ways that often leave fashionistas wondering if they’ll ever make it to the endless cycle of dressing to keep up with the times, and appropriately.
If you are a style enthusiast who wants to be updated with the latest, you do not want to be caught wearing accessories that were a hit in the 90s.
Are you one of the many average men and women who neither have access to the best finds nor work in the fashion industry (but hoping to)? Here are some ideas that may help you choose the best outfit and be in style, any season of the year:
Read, watch, familiarize.
It’s essential that you know first-hand how to spot the trendiest. Simply looking at what the stores offer does help, but you obtain better information by reading fashion magazines, visiting blogs and watching television shows that focus on the up-to-the-minute news on what’s chic and what’s not. If you can, visit fashion shows and galleries showcasing the best the industry has to offer.
Go by the “Mix and match” rule of thumb.
If you are like most people, you want to get a bit creative and not simply be a “fashion slave”. If a great designer top that has just been out catches your fancy, get it and match it with your basic pair of jeans. Match it with accessories that highlight your getup. When doing this, make sure you neither underdress nor go over the top. Dress your age too.
Got clothing that has gone “out of style”? Don’t throw them away.
To reiterate, style evolves. You may notice that even couture pieces have striking resemblance to the former hot stuff in the fashion market. If you are clearing out your closet and getting rid of unwanted clothes to make room for up-to-date clothing, make sure you keep some. The popularity of skinny jeans, for example, periodically come and go. Your pair of basic jeans need not be thrown away, either.
Get inspiration from the pros.
You just can’t help but notice how some people simply carry themselves with such sophistication or glamor. No matter how you want to simply be yourself, it helps to have people in the fashion industry to look up to. Models and celebrities are your best source for knowing what’s hot and what’s not. Look at what they are wearing and determine what may look good on you.
A well-dressed man or woman not only impresses others, but develop a sense of confidence in them. Look your best and be happy whenever you look in the mirror.
