Do you love fashion? Lookng for ways to emphasize your taste? From New York to Paris, anyone can achieve a super chic look when they pay attention to certain details. Here are some incredible style secrets that will make you look and feel like a fashion queen:
Quality over quantity
Buying a whole wardrobe of Roberto Cavalli clothing isn’t affordable for most of us. However, when you are on a budget, stick to the mantra of quality over quantity as much as possible. It is far better to have a smaller wardrobe full of beautifully made and well-designed items that fit you perfectly, rather lots of clothing that is cheap and poor quality.
Look after your clothing
It follows from the point above that you should take great care of your garments. Well-pressed clothing will help you to achieve that chic look. Follow instructions for washing items to a T and always deal with stains, damage and other flaws immediately to avoid them getting any worse. Tailoring clothes without experience and skill can end in disaster, so always pay for professional services if you are at all unsure.
Copy your style heroes
If you lack fashion inspiration look to your style heroes for help. Your icons can be anyone from your Gaby Espino to your Mum. Don’t be afraid to borrow fashion and beauty styles from them. But do try to adapt them to suit your individual style and add touches of your personality where you can.
Dress for you
Do not have to be skinny to look chic. It’s all about getting to know your body shape and choosing clothes that flatter you. If you are small in height and curvy in shape, you are unlikely to suit long, straight styles. However, your body will look fantastic in open necklines and nipped waists. Take the time to get to know your body shape and what you feel comfortable in. You know what they say, if you feel great, you look great.
Stand up straight
Never underestimate what good posture can do for your overall look (and health). Slouching and hunched shoulders make you look and feel uncomfortable. Look at catwalk models. They always have impeccable posture. This makes them look strong and confident and means the beautiful clothes they are wearing hang on them perfectly. And this applies to you. There is no point spending lots of time creating chic ensembles if you are just going to slouch in them. It can be difficult to break posture habits, but try your best to remind yourself to tuck in your tummy, throw your shoulders back, and lift your head high.
Fashion is all about pushing boundaries and trying something new, so don’t be afraid to experiment with your ensembles. Mixing colors, patterns and textures can lead to much more interesting outfit. Looking at fashion blogs, websites and magazine will help to get your creative juices flowing.
