It would be awfully nice to be able to dress chic and stylish every day. However, with busy schedules and commitments, dressing stylish can be difficult. In fact, most women want to be able to dress the way they like within minutes.
Luckily, there are 10 simple ideas on glamming up your lifestyle on a daily basis:
1. Have Accessories
“There’s nothing wrong with investing in a few accessories to tune up your style,” says Julie Bell, a fashion writer. “Whether it’s shoes, jewelry, a handbag, or anything else that you can match or mix with your wardrobe, then go for it. Even if you invest in one bracelet, you can still throw on an outfit in only a few minutes, and then add the accessory to your look before you leave.”
2. Organize And Declutter Your Closet
Is your closet organized? If not, then now is the time to do some decluttering. Because let’s face it: you can’t expect to find your favorite outfit, if it’s buried deep in your cavernous closet.
Here’s how you can start organizing your closet:
- See what clothes to sell, donate, or throw away.
- Then, organize remaining items into categories.
- Hang and fold your clothes.
- Invest in a shoe rack.
3. Own A Pair Of Sunglasses
Just carry a stylish pair of sunglasses wherever you go. Sunglasses are ideal for sunny days – hot or cold. Once you carry a pair with you, you’ll be amazed at how sunglasses can make you look more stylish. And the best part? Sunglasses can universally suit most faces.
4. Fix Your Hair
The truth is, you don’t have to invest in a lot of products to make your hair stylist-approved. If you feel that you can’t maintain it as much as you want to, then it’s okay to get a haircut. In fact, more and more women are trying out the pixie hairdos and going short nowadays. So, why not get into the trend?
5. Find Styles That Are Good For Your Shape
There are certain styles will do well for some people, while it won’t work with others. Therefore, having outfits that fit your shape requires strategic shopping. Invest in clothes and designs that work for your body shape. If something in your closet suits you really well, then shop for other pieces with that same silhouette.
6. Mind Your Nails
Your nails are also essential part of your look, even though they’re minimal in size and appearance. If you want your nails to look stylish – or, at least, decent – then consider going for regular manicures, or do it yourself with reputable manicure kits that you can find at any reputable retailer.
7. Prepare For The Weather
“It’s important to plan ahead with your choice of style, when it comes to the weather,” says Nicole Lane, a lifestyle blogger. “When possible, take some time to plan out the coming week. Will it be sunny on one day? Will it rain on another day? It’s better to have a plan for weather and fashion, rather than not know what to wear for the next few days.”
8. Mix Patterns
Patterns can add some life and fun to your wardrobe, especially when you mix and match them. Here are ways that you can mix and match patterns:
To mix patterns, find patterns (i.e. floral and stripes) that complement each other rather than clash. OR,
To match patterns, have two patterns that match and complement each other, in regards to colors.
Layers are another great way to add some spice to your wardrobe. However, this is yet another skill to master, if you want to really pull it off.
To hone your layering skills, consider how your favorite street style stars wear layers, and then mimic their looks with your own wardrobe. That’s part of experimenting with your clothes.
10. Use Black As A Last Resort
Finally, when in doubt, wear black. Although black clothing is usually seen as too casual, if you feel that you can’t pull off a stylish look within minutes, then opt for something black. Instead of kicking yourself for not wearing something nice, treat this as a life lesson to plan ahead in the future.
While it might take some time to hone your fashion skills, it’s worth it. By looking into experimenting with your wardrobe with these 10 ideas, you’ll be able to pull off a stylish look every time you leave home.
