For most part of my life I didn’t care about fashion at all. Thanks to that I’m literally a fashion zero. My style is just wearing some jeans with a sweater or a shirt and that’s it. If I decide to go wild I might pop on a little cardigan or wear a blouse but that really is the limit. Lately I’ve become more interested in fashion and I’ve been trying to sort of improve my style. Today I’m going to talk about some tips and other fashion related things that are helpful if you want to become more fashionable. So, if you’re interested in reading some kick-ass tips on becoming more fashionable, I highly recommend you continue reading!
One of my bigger mistakes is thinking that size doesn’t matter that much. Whenever I saw a cute sweater or a pretty top I would buy it no matter what. So if it wasn’t in the size I normally have, I would buy it one size up or in a very rare occasion one size down. Of course wearing oversized things is okay, but some clothes just look better if they fit right.
Because I was wearing a ton of wrong sized clothing some clothes just look a little off on my and most of the time I ended up never wearing them anyway. So what I learned from this is: no matter how cute the piece of clothing is (and no matter how cheap it is), it it’s not in your size, don’t buy it!
Simplicity vs. patterns
My fashion rule was: don’t dress to simple or too basic. Since I always wore, and still wear, jeans, I decided I had to wear a shirt with something going on everyday. Obviously that’s completely not true. Wearing patterns can look super fabulous, but wearing something very simple and plain can look really good too. So don’t stick to always wearing at least something patterned, go for simplicity sometimes.
Another thing I have learned from reading tons of articles on the internet is that layering is key. It’s getting warmer outside everyday so this isn’t the perfect time to actually start doing this since it can get a little warm on you, but on colder days this is definitely a good one. Apparently wearing tons of layers instantly makes you look more fashionable. It shows that you at least have some sense of style cause it’s not that easy to match a ton of clothes to create an outfit like that.
The downside to this is that you do have to know what looks good together and what doesn’t. In my opinion everything can look good together if you style it right. But since I don’t know nothing about fashion and I don’t ”style” things, this is quite hard for me.
Like I said I always wear jeans. Plain, simple skinny jeans. However, according to what I’ve read, unique pants are all the range now. And with unique pants I mean: flared jeans, loose and flowy pants, you name it. And I love that trend. I love those loose and flowy pants that look like they are so flipping comfortable to wear!
And the great thing is that these pants come in all kinds of styles and looks. They come in plain colours, but also in really cute patterns.
This one I didn’t necessarily get from reading articles on the internet, but more from just looking around me. One thing I have noticed is that a coat or a jacket does a lot for an outfit. When someone is wearing a really pretty looking jacket I instantly think they have a nice style and their outfit just looks really cute.
I do have a history of wearing the most ugly coats in the world so this is definitely a challenge for me, but I think that when you find that perfect coat, you can make every outfit look stunning!
Huge and unique sunglasses
Now that it’s getting sunnier outside you see people wearing sunglasses again. What I have noticed is that those who wear the most unique and/or huge sunglasses look the most fashionable. Because the sunglasses look so different from the ones you regularly see, you, or at least I, instantly think they have style because if they didn’t, they couldn’t rock those sunglasses like that.
In other words: rock something unique and you will look fashionable!
A bag is key
My last tip or hack or whatever you want to call it is that your bag is key. I mean every fashionable women rocks a gorgeous looking bag. And that cute little bag just finishes off the outfit. It adds a hint of style but it also makes you look really nice and classy. I really need to add one of those to my collection very soon!
And that pretty much concludes what I found on the internet and saw in my surroundings. Those were tips I figured would be helpful to those who want to look more fashionable. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post and be sure to let me know what you do to make yourself look super fashionable!
