Have you ever worn a wrong pair of shoes with a dress to a party? Have you ever gone out with a crazy hair or make up, and people mocked you? Well, in my case; yes I have. I have done so many fashion blunders in my life, on which people could only laugh. Most girls will agree with me on that we all have done some fashion blunders at some point of time in our life. Just to make sure you don’t make such fashion slip-ups, I have got you some basic fashion tips that every girl need to mark on her personal fashion diary. So let’s begin.
1. Dress according to your body type
Know your body type before updating your wardrobe with new outfits. It is one of the most important basic styling tips. It is important to understand that not all patterns, fabrics and styles falter every body type. You need to avoid such outfits that do not falter your body type. It’s rare to see a celebrity who dresses off to its body type. It is because they know that identifying your body type is the first step of styling success.
2. Find a perfect fit
I have seen many women and girls picking outfits that do not even fit their body perfectly. Don’t convince yourself when the dress you choose is little tight or loose. No matter whether you like the color or pattern, if the outfit doesn’t fits you rightly, it is not made for you.
3. Do not use patterns with patterns
Prints and patterns spice up your look, but never ever wear patterns with patterns and prints with prints. It is the most common fashion mistake most women do when styling a look. If you are wearing a floral top do not go with floral jeans at the bottom. Do not wear more than one print or pattern ever for a look. It looks awfully out of the place.
4. Do not wear so many colors together
Do not wear so many colors together with an outfit. You are your own personal stylist, so you have to learn the basic dos and don’ts of styling a perfect look. It’s best to pair a solid or main color with a neutral tone and match the other fashion accessories with the main color. And if you like wearing something more colorful and bright go for maximum two or three shades to play it safe. You can also make monochromatic statement by wearing shades of just one color you like.
5. Avoid over accessorizing
Do not over accessorize your look. Wearing so many accessories with an outfit will only make you look fuzzy. Just a simple watch and a cute pair of earrings are enough to grab the attention of many. A good pair of high heels and a classy bag can enhance your entire look in a second. An easy necklace with a plain outfit or Swarovski studs and rings can create a more exciting look. Wear minimal jewelry with an embroidered dress. If you like wearing heavy, beaded tribal, multilayered and fringe necklaces then keep the outfit and other accessories simple.
6. Choose colors that flatter your skin tone
You will find different type of colors in a fashionista girl’s wardrobe. She tries almost all colors to find what suits her and what doesn’t. It’s only a stereotype that brown girls should not wear dark colors or dark shades don’t flatter dusky skin tone. No matter you are brown or bright, try every color you like, but picky to choose the right shade of the color to go best with the accessories you have in your wardrobe.
7. Have wardrobe basics
Stock up your wardrobe with fundamental fashion accessories. Have the latest styled well-fitted jeans, trendy tops, casual tees, a classy black dress and a denim shrug. Don’t forget to add a plain white shirt, skinny black pant and a pair of pump heels to your collection for a professional meeting or interview look. Here’s a complete list of 12 wardrobe essentials and must have accessories. This list includes simple items that come handy when you have nothing to wear.
8. Don’t overdo make up
I personally prefer going out with minimal make up. However, it’s your personal choice. The only tip here I want to give is that don’t overdo makeup in the day time. Don’t over draw your natural lips. Stick with brown or black mascara, and don’t bother wearing fake heavy lashes. Make sure your under eye concealer is not too lighter than your skin shade or foundation.
