There are plenty оf times when we walk down the street and just
can’t help turning our head and taking a second look at an outfit that just
blows us away. Casual, yet elegant and chic. Don’t worry, those women are not
wizards, they have just mastered the tricks for the perfect chic outfit, and you can do it
Every good outfit should have something that draws attention,
and one of the easiest ways to do so is to incorporate a distinct color scheme
into your outfit. If you are not sure how to match colors, stick to a
completely neutral palette, like beige or white, and add one or two bright
accents, or find inspiration online.
Make sure that these details accentuate your flattering body
parts, since all eyes are going to be on them. Belts, headbands, jewelry and
bags are all great ways to incorporate some color. You can try different color
styles like color blocking, stripes or plaid patterns.
Play with shapes
In recent years, we tend to believe that everything we wear
needs to create a perfect hourglass silhouette. And while that might work for
some people, a great way to make your outfit stand out is to create a
unique shape. Wear a boxy jacket or bell-bottom jeans to achieve the desired
effect. You don’t have to sacrifice showing off your enviable body shape while
you’re doing this: wear a fitted shirt underneath your jacket to accentuate
your figure while still keeping the unique overall shape.
No matter how wonderful your outfit might be, the majority of
people will always be looking at your face. Add something interesting in that
area by wearing a headpiece that will turn heads. Tie a scarf in a
complementary color to draw attention to your eyes, or put on a baseball cap to
give your outfit a laid-back vibe. Experiment with headbands, hairstyles and
hats to find a style that you are comfortable with.
A lot of people tend to shy away from animal prints in their
wardrobe thinking that the outfit will end up looking tacky or over-the-top.
Actually, animal prints are a great way to add color and
print to your style, and if you stick to just one printed item per outfit, you
have nothing to be afraid of. If you want to ease into the world of animal
prints, start off with accessories and work your way up.
The best way to stand out from the crowd is to steer away from
what everybody else is doing. But if you don’t want to go about looking like
you’re ready for Halloween, then you need to pick and choose all the pieces
carefully. You can look for a
subtle gothic corset and find the one that’s edgy, but not over the
top. If you want to pull this look off successfully, the trick is not to give
any special treatment to the outfit, but simply style it like you would any
other piece that you have in your wardrobe.
Change the scale
Wearing oversized pieces has been a trend for the past couple
of years, and it seems to be staying right where it is. Make sure you stick to
just one out-of-scale piece, so you don’t end up looking like you’re wearing
pajamas. Go for a large bag, oversized sweatshirt, a men’s shirt or chunky
platforms. It will give your outfit an effortless look while still showing off
your immaculate style.
Having a fashion identity will not only allow you to stand out,
but will also help you express yourself in your unique way. No matter what the
trends say, make sure you stay true to yourself and give your own twist to
every outfit you put together. Remember to wear only the things that you feel
comfortable in and rock your outfits with confidence.
