Fashion is a way to express who you are and what you believe in.
The fashion industry in the United States is worth 400 billion dollars.
Your style reflects a piece of your personality. If you want to dress well you need to know some fashion basics.
This article will teach you how to dress cute and accessorize well.
1. Do a Purge
A new year is approaching which means it’s out with the old and in with the new.
Before you can revamp your closet, you need to get rid of clothes that don’t suit your style.
Go through your closet and donate anything that you haven’t worn in over a year. Donate things that don’t fit well anymore.
Remember that a fashionable wardrobe is one that is well-fitting.
If you need some extra cash, Plato’s Closet will buy your gently used clothes.
2. Invest in Good Jeans
Ah, the ultimate quest… finding an amazing pair of jeans.
Jeans that hug your curves just right can make any outfit look outstanding.
Don’t drop money on just any pair of jeans. Make it your mission to find a brand that works for your shape.
Don’t be afraid to invest in high-quality jeans that will last for years to come. Once you find the right style, buy a few pairs in case the company discontinues them.
You should buy one pair of light blue, one pair of medium blue, and one pair of black jeans. Black jeans can be turned into business casual pants with the proper top and shoes.
3. Buy a Blazer
A blazer is a universal staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe.
Blazers enable you to dress up a casual outfit in seconds. Jeans, a white t-shirt, and a blazer is a classic look for almost any occasion.
Start with a plain black blazer and then buy more colors from there.
4. Pick Patterned Tights
The weather outside is going to be cold for the foreseeable future as winter continues to roll in.
Patterned tights are a fashionable way to deal with the cold.
They provide warmth while adding intrigue to any outfit. Throw on a pair of fun tights under a little black dress to draw the eyes to your legs.
5. Go Thrifting
If at all possible, try not to support the fast fashion industry.
Fast fashion retailers pay their workers next to nothing in order to church out new clothes quickly.
Avoid this by buying sustainable for used clothes from thrift stores. Reusing clothes is one of the best ways to reduce waste.
Thrift stores give you stylish choices that not everyone in your friend group will have. You can also feel better in your clothes knowing you’re helping the environment.
6. Choose Jewelry
Jewelry will tie together any outfit and give it some sparkle.
It’s important to know what kinds of jewelry go with your skin tone. The right pair of earrings or necklace will instantly improve your look.
Silver jewelry usually compliments cool skin tones while gold jewelry compliments warm ones.
Gold jewelry for women can instantly brighten the face and make you feel beautiful.
7. Vary Your Purse Sizes
Every woman should have at least three purses.
One large purse for days when she has a lot to carry. One small purse for days when she only has a few items, and one clutch style for a purse for nights when she’s going out on the town.
Having multiple purse sizes will serve you well in life. A messenger bag can double as a large purse and will fit your laptop and electronic accessories.
Crossbody purses are fashionable and keep your items safe from pickpocketers.
8. Sock It To ‘Em
Even if you like to dress in minimalist clothing, your socks are where you can really show some personality.
A pair of fun socks will totally transform a jeans and t-shirt look.
Socks come in all shapes and sizes, with all different patterns. You can even get socks custom made with your dog’s face on them.
Use socks to add a splash of color to an otherwise drab outfit.
9. Buy Boots
Boots are made for walking in style. They are practical, cute, and comfortable.
Invest in a pair of high-quality boots that will serve your feet well for years.
Doc Martens are said to last people decades. These shoes will set you back around $150, but they will bring you through many stages of your life.
Doc Martens come in the traditional black, and also white and cherry red.
They’re a perfect winter accessory to keep your feet warm and they’re rain and snow resistant.
10. Use Your Head(band)
Do you want a splash of color on your head without the commitment of a hat? Try a headband.
Headbands come in all different colors and they are very stylish. They are a fun way to conceal a bad hair day.
You can wear stretchy ones when you workout to hold your hair back, and more formal ones for everyday wear.
