Who besides me love those makeover shows? Where stylists and makeup maestros transform a simple looking contestant into a diva with their magic. We still love the Cinderella vibes long after entering adulthood! Out of all the brand names and unique makeup product uses, the thing I learn the most from such shows is that having a fashion sense is vital to enhance your appearance. The right clothes, the right jewelry, and the proper use of makeup can help you inspire onlookers, given you develop a personal style!
Putting it in the words of Harry Winston, “People will stare, so make it worth their while.”
Looking gorgeous is all about feeling good inside first, along with how you express yourself. Wearing those tacky earrings “just because they are the latest fad” although you hate the design is not the correct way to look great.
In fact, you should do the other way round, that is, wear something that may not be trending, but feels and looks good on you.
If you want to look impressive every time you get ready for an occasion, follow these valuable style tips from fashion experts:
1. The Secret to Glowing Skin
The role of good skin in your overall appearance is undeniable. It is, in fact, one of those things that you can’t ignore if you wish to inspire people with your looks.
Wearing expensive clothing while your skin is having a bad breakout is not a desirable combo at all.
Maintain a well-rounded skincare routine to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Besides regular exfoliation, cleansing, and moisturizing, do a little extra for your skin by applying face serum daily at night.
Go for natural remedies like applying ice to shrink open pores and placing cucumber slices on eyes to avoid dark circles. A well maintained, even skin is vital to help your makeup stay and look fantastic. Less effort is required into makeup if your skin is flawless.
2. Don’t Neglect Your Hair
A healthy, beautiful mane is the key to look gorgeous, no matter what the occasion is. Plus, styling them is so much easier if they are healthy and robust.
Wash your hair every other day and don’t forget to apply conditioner. Choose a hair color, highlight, or lowlight that suits your face. The most effortless way to style your hair is to get a low-maintenance haircut that is easy to style.
Avoid styling your hair too much to save them from damage. Don’t fall into the trap that rigorous back-combing or extensive heat from straighteners and rollers won’t do much harm to your hair.
3. Wear Clothing That Fits You Right
This is the best fashion advice anyone can give you!
What doesn’t fit you well won’t ever make you look chic and classy.
Ace designer Hubert de Givenchy suggested that clothes must follow a woman’s body type, not the other way round!
Firstly, figure out your body type, and wear outfits to accentuate your particular body type. For instance, a-line dresses or tops with vertical stripes look great on an inverted triangle body shape.
Always try outfits before you buy them, and trust the judgment of your eyes. If the whole outfit looks great, but you feel it needs a bit of tweaking here and there, take it to the tailor for alterations.
Remember that both loose and too tight clothing will neither make you comfortable nor do any favor for your appearance.
4. Learn to Build Outfits
Building an ensemble is an art that you need to master if you want to look ravishing every time. But it isn’t as complicated as it seems.
Keep some classic staples into your wardrobe, and use them as a base of every outfit. Your classics can include dark skinny jeans, a white tee, beautifully printed blouses, a maxi dress, a short dress, neutral-colored cardigans, and a stylish black leather jacket.
In terms of colors, you can consider contrasting to build an outfit that doesn’t feel like a uniform. Try to stay in the same color shade as pairing a neutral shade with a contrasting neutral shade.
Some amazing outfit ideas that suit most body types are a white t-shirt, blue jeans, with a leather jacket, a plaited tunic with palazzos, or a plain maxi dress with a denim jacket.
5. Dress Relevantly for Occasions
A dress that is perfect for a date night isn’t a perfect one for a picnic. To feel and look great, you must choose a dress that is appropriate for a particular occasion.
While hanging out casually with your buddies, you can wear a nice top with jogger pants and pair it with nude pumps. On the other hand, a plain top, black jeans, and a cream-colored long blazer is a perfect work outfit.
But whatever it takes, never wear clothes that make you uncomfortable.
6. While Doing Makeup, Stick to the Rule “Eyes or Lips.”
YouTube has some great content in the form of makeup tutorials through which you can learn the art of makeup.
Remember that the perfect makeup neither looks over nor is it too less to get noticed.
There is a rule which you can follow to make sure your makeup will never look weird. It is either to accentuate your lips or your eyes with makeup.
Depending upon the occasion, you can go for a smokey eye with nude lips, or wear a scarlet red lipstick and apply eyeliner and neutral shades on your eyes. The key is to enhance one feature at a time and be subtle with the rest of your look.
7. The Power of Footwear
The shortest advice I can give you regarding footwear is to buy the right size, match it with your bag, and opt for designs that you can carry easily!
Black and nude footwear gel well with most outfits, so you can be safe with these if you are unsure about the matching. But that doesn’t mean you should ditch those lovely red stilettos or your long slick boots.
Search for outfit ideas that will look nice with these shoes and wear them with complete confidence to stun the onlookers.
8. Accessorize to Complete Your Look
Accessories add oomph to your outfit, as well as your confidence. Carefully build a collection of accessories that reflect your personality.
Apart from jewelry such as earrings, necklaces, and rings, an accessory that can do wonders for your look are statement sunglasses. Buy one that suits the shape of your face and flaunt them with both casual and formal outfits.
Some lovely hats should also be a part of your accessory closet. There are several outfits whose simplicity can be enhanced by wearing hats over them like dresses and outfits with wide-legged trousers.
For a funky, glam look, try layering your rings, or go for antique bracelets. Delicate jewelry suits girls with a highly feminine or shy personality.
Summing Up the Fashion Advice
Gianni Versace was not only a huge fashion inspiration but also known for his valuable quotes. Once he said: “Don’t be into trends and let fashion own you. Instead, decide what you are and express yourself by the way you dress.”
His words clearly sum up how balancing a good fashion sense and a personal style is vital to appear attractive. You can use the above-mentioned tips and tricks to style yourself up and look stunning, and that too by putting significantly less effort.
