Gain confidence in your style with fashion advice for styling every look in your closet.
A capsule wardrobe
A capsule wardrobe is a curated wardrobe made up of versatile pieces that you love to wear. Ensure you have reliable wardrobe staples; an iconic little black dress, a pair of jeans that fit perfectly, an effortless leather or denim jacket, a classic blazer, simple T-shirts and button downs. These pieces are great investments and is the key to looking put together.
Good style hinges on good fit. When clothing fits you properly, not only do you look more polished but it also feels more comfortable. Tailoring an item of clothing is one trick to looking amazing, finding a good tailor is well worth the effort. If your capsule wardrobe fits you well, you can start to play with over- and under-sized items in a way that feels fashionable, not sloppy.
Balance and proportions
Balancing proportions is about styling your outfits to create an overall aesthetic harmony. Proportion is all about playing around, creating illusions and drawing your eye up and down your body to where you want the attention to focus. One way of achieving this is by wearing clothing thats fitted to the body. When opting for oversized clothes, balance the look by keeping the rest of the look fitted. For example, a fitted top with a wide leg pants.
Your personal style should be reflective of your likes, creativity, and lifestyle. When you develop a personal style you are curating a unique image and wardrobe that helps you to express yourself and embody the person you want to be. Take time to play with colors and shapes to find what looks great on your unique body. Not to worry, developing your signature doesn’t happen over night, it can take years.
Being a better shopper
Don’t make shopping a random event – make a plan before you go shopping, and stick to that plan. Learning how to shop for exactly what you want, will truly help and avoid buying items that you’ll never wear. When your wardrobe consists of pieces that you love, styling an outfit will become second nature.
