Before your throw all of your clothes out of the bedroom window in a mad panic, take a deep breath. We’ve all been there. We’ve all spent hours trying to pick an outfit for a night out with friends. We’ve all questioned why every single piece of clothing we own is horrendous. But when you take a step back, you might find that your wardrobe is salvageable. And the answer isn’t always to go out on a wild shopping splurge. Some pieces of attire might have to go, and you might want to make some additions, but we’re going to talk about ways to make your outfits work for you in the long term. Here are some fashion pointers for those with chaotic wardrobes.
Avoid fast fashion.
So many of us are shopaholics and that’s why it’s hard to listen to this piece of advice. But if you always opt for the latest fashion trends then you’re not only contributing to an environmentally-damaging industry but also wasting your money. Your clothes won’t only be out of style in a few months but they’ll be falling apart by then too. After all, fast fashion pieces aren’t designed with quality in mind. If you’re cleaning out your wardrobe then fill the gaps with clothes from thrift stores. Search for classic fashion pieces that don’t follow trends. That way, you’ll have timeless outfits which will serve you well for years to come. Always avoid fast fashion.
Always add a statement piece to each outfit.
Timeless style might be a little more understated than some of the passing trends in the world of fashion, but that’s why accessorising exists. It’s about giving your minimal look a loud and powerful focal point. You should always add a statement piece to each outfit you wear. Maybe it’ll be a watch or a nice purse on weekdays, and maybe it’ll be a glitzy necklace at the weekend. And statement pieces can go further than jewellery or handbags. You might want to get a pair of fake eyelashes and long lasting hair extensions. That’s a statement piece which you can take with you wherever you go. It’ll also work with every outfit. Fashion and style can extend far beyond the clothes you wear.
Accentuate your shape.
Finally, if you want to be fashionable then you should never use clothes to hide yourself. Being stylish is about being bold and confident. No matter how modern your outfits, you won’t feel good in them if you don’t feel good about yourself. Size doesn’t matter; all that matters is how you present yourself. Accentuate that shape. Well-fitted clothing always looks fashionable because it shows that you’ve put time and effort into your wardrobe. You can’t beat the tailored look. And if you do opt for looser clothing then mix and match. Wear that baggy shirt with a pair of slim-fitting jeans, or accessorise your flowing summer dress with a belt to make it more shapely. Get creative with your outfits to reinvent your wardrobe. You might even want to hop on the endless jumpsuit trend if you want to combine comfort with fashion.
