There are some women who always look put together. And they always make it look so effortless. We see them in the office, at home, in the gym, and elsewhere. You always wonder how they do it. Well, they have their little secrets, and here a few of them:
The Devil is in the Details
It’s the small tricks that count. Rolling up your shirt sleeve, filling in your eyebrows, and putting on matching accessories are all tricks that make you stand out as someone who knows a thing or two about fashion.
Dress for your Body Type
Are you short, thin, pear-shaped, tall, etc? Find out what your body type is and make it work for you. There are numerous places you can go to for advice on dressing for your body type, including Pinterest, YouTube, and even books at the library. Then start putting together your ideal outfits based on what you learned. Donate clothes that don’t flatter your body type to the local thrift store, where someone else can enjoy them.
Balance Out your Flaws
Let’s say you’re having a bad hair day. Make up for it by putting on some extra nice clothes and makeup. No time for makeup or you’ll be late for work? Do your hair extra nice and wear a nice outfit. Clothes feeling blah because you haven’t had time to do laundry for several days? Put on some fresh makeup and do your hair up in a fun braid or bun.
Invest in Some Classics
Fun prints, bright earrings, flannels, and interesting looking totes can be a lot of fun, but it’s good to pair those with classic clothes like a little black dress, blue blazer, well-fitting blue jeans, a white shirt, and beige pumps. When you just need a simple look, these clothes can be your go-to wardrobe. You can also match them with the more fun clothes and accessories to create your own individualized look.
Lipstick Says it All
Wear it proud and wear it loud. Minimalize the rest of the makeup, but wear a nice strong color of lipstick. Nothing says style quite like a bright red lipstick which goes with anything.
Upgrade the Casual Clothes
Everyone likes to be comfortable, but why not be comfortable in style? Trade in your boring t-shirts for t-shirts with a funny saying and a few extra details. Swap your slouchy hoodies for chic sweaters and fun hats. Find some footwear that really elevates your style with extra accents or more comfortable material like leather. Your feet will thank you, and you might find yourself even more comfortable than before.
Make Sure your Clothes Fit
Whether it’s recovering from pregnancy, losing weight, or going through a stressful patch, we all go through ups and downs of weight gain and loss throughout our lives. It might be tempting to save money and hold onto the clothes that no longer fit us, but it will be better for our self-esteem and our look to adjust our wardrobe to life changes. Ill-fitting clothes can really make us look messy.
As you can see, looking put together is not so difficult once you know the little secrets that help. Give a few of these tips a try and see how easy it is to have a put together look.
