Pulling together an amazing outfit requires more than simply reaching into the closet and grabbing something. If you find yourself wearing clothing that doesn’t make you look or feel good, it’s time to rethink your wardrobe. Over the years, it’s easy to settle into a rut of wearing the same colors and styles and even shopping at the same stores. Follow the following tips to hep you put together the perfect outfit.
Shop Somewhere New
Shake things up a bit and shop somewhere new. Try a little boutique to find new styles you won’t likely find in your usual department stores. Boutiques often stock truly unique items.
Choose an Item that You Love
Whether it’s a top that you can’t take your eyes off or a pair of jeans that fit perfectly, find one item that you absolutely love. That will be the item an outfit is built around. Once you have a really great piece of clothing that you adore, it’s easier to put together the rest of the outfit and the accessories to pull it all together.
Size is Important
Clothing that is too tight or too loose should be left in the store. Choose items that are your true size. There is a misconception that buying clothing a bit larger makes you look smaller. This is not true. Clothing that is too large just makes the person wearing it look larger. The same goes for tight clothing. The best choice is clothing that fits. Length is important too. If you are petite, make sure you shop the petite section or have your items hemmed. Clothes that don’t fit look sloppy.
Consider the Occasion
Consider what you will be doing that day. For work, you will want something that gives off a professional vibe, if you’re going out on a date, consider something dressier. And, for weekends spent running errands, jeans or khakis with a fun top would be perfect.
Putting together wonderful outfits doesn’t have to be difficult. It just takes a bit of planning and thought. Put together a few outfits and organize them in your closet so you always have something ready. Remember to choose items you simply adore and work around them to put together your looks. Buy clothing that fits, and think about where you’ll be going.
