It’s quite often that people forget that even in the bundling and cold season that looking good is also a good option. Your clothes create a bad or good first impression before you can speak. Yes, being warm and comfortable is important but that doesn’t mean you should lack style. Here are some amazing fashion tips to make sure that even during winter, everyone turns around to look at what you’re wearing.
“Every time you dress, you tell your story to the world. Capturing your personal style can reveal your best self and have you feel incredibly beautiful, from the inside out,” says personal stylist Cindy Newstead.
Stop Being Too Comfortable With Dark Colours
It’s very common for people to spot their darker colours during the cold season. Yes, the olive greens, navy blues, chocolate browns and blacks are good but if you have been using them since last winter, they are most likely faded by now. If you’re clothes are dull, your whole look still looks the same. It’s very hard to keep black clothes looking rich and new. Go through your closet and throw away any faded or discoloured clothes as well as those with holes and pilling. Always remember to keep yourself looking polished.
Alex Myles author of An Empath, a newly published book that explains various aspects of existing as a highly sensitive person, say’s, “How we dress ourselves is a personal choice and a form of art; the clothes we choose to wear send out subliminal messages that can be used to interpret our personalities. Colours are a visual stimulus and they can inspire and energise, or enhance aggression, passion and calm. Some even believe that we don’t just see colors, but that they have such a significant impact on us that we feel them too”.
Jen Derose from HouseBeautiful.com say’s, “A tidy, well-kept closet is the best: Not only do mornings run more smoothly, but all of a sudden your outfit options seem limitless. If you want to give your wardrobe the respect it deserves, try some of these ideas to make the most of your space”.
Most women end up shopping because they feel they have nothing good in their closet to wear. However, it could be because your closet is sloppy, disheveled and unorganised thus it’s hard to find the right outfit. A properly organised closet allows you to find new outfits effortlessly. If you can see most of your outfits, you can always recreate a new look effortlessly.
Start by organising your closet by colour from the light to dark clothes. Next, you should organise it according to the type of garment such as tanks, blouses, jackets, pants and skirts. As for the sweaters, you should fold them in a shelf or drawer to keep their shape. Don’t forget to place cedar blocks in the closet to keep away moths from the wool and cashmere outfits.
An Element Of Surprise
You can always add something edgy to a normal look to create an element of surprise. For instance, you can combine a moto jacket with a lace dress or a vintage necklace to a modern outfit. Also, you can add a pop of colour to a drab outfit for the best results. Try adding a designer or vintage belt to a longer coat to make it look like a masterpiece. Normal is always overrated but adding something edgy to your outfit brings the desired look.
