Gain confidence in your appearance with fashion tips for a winning wardrobe.
Work on your capsule wardrobe, make sure you have reliable basics in your wardrobe; an iconic little black dress, perfectly fitted jeans, a classic blazer, simple t-shirts and shirts in neutral colours, and a leather jacket or similar. Spending on several mix and match quality basics and learning how to style them is key to looking good, feeling confident and having a well used working wardrobe.
Make sure your clothes fit perfectly. One trick to making any garment look fantastic is to use a good tailor. Tailored clothing is not only sophisticated, but it is also more comfortable. Trousers that drag on the floor and dresses that ride up awkwardly won’t make you feel stylish or confident. If your capsule wardrobe looks good on you, you can start playing around with oversized or oversized items in a way that looks trendy and not sloppy.

Learn how to balance the proportions. Balancing proportions is all about combining your outfits to create an overall aesthetic harmony. The way to do this is to wear clothes that work well with the shape of your body. If you would like to experiment with oversized clothes or unusual shapes the key is to make the rest of the look more fitted. For example, try pairing a fitted crop top with baggy jeans or a puff shoulder top with straight-legged pants.
Find your style. Developing a signature style can take years however, you can start by working with your favourite key pieces. Remember that personal style should be a reflection of you and your personality, it can be good to try on styles that you don’t usually go for to see if they work on you, the fitting room is a great place to do this. Don’t be restricted by categories or sizes. Take time to try new colours and shapes to find what suits your unique body and taste.
Become a better buyer. Learning how to buy exactly what you want will help you avoid cluttering your wardrobe with items you will never use. Don’t be tempted by cheap offers they rarely last. When your wardrobe is made up of quality pieces that you love, putting together an outfit will become second nature.
Add a belt. Adding a belt to your look is one of the easiest ways to make any outfit look more polished. It’s also an excellent tip for balancing out a look that wouldn’t work otherwise, like a long cashmere sweater and a navy midi skirt.
Play with colour. If you are afraid to add colour to your look, start with one colourful piece and keep the rest of your look neutral. As you become more familiar with tones, you will learn which colour combinations work best for your style and skin tone. Take a look at a colour ring for further motivation.
Mix patterns and textures. Gone are the days of matching your bag with your shoes. Contrasting textures and prints make a bold fashion statement. Start with neutral patterns like stripes and understated textures like leather and knits, adding sequins and paisleys in small amounts (like a scarf, tie, or tote bag) until you are pleased with what works for you. Have fun and learn to enjoy your wardrobe with the addition of accessories.
