Layering clothes isn’t just for winter. Adding layers can be useful if you have a low cut top or dress, while also giving your look a bit of a unique twist. If your top is a bit too revealing, then simply add a strappy camisole vest underneath or if you have a slip dress why not add a white t-shirt to give it a more casual look.
Size is just a number
If you buy from different shops, one thing you will notice is that sizes vary. This means that you could be one size in one store and a completely different size in another. Don’t think too much into the size and try a few on to ensure you get clothes that fit you and your body shape correctly.
Choose the right colours
Quite often we’ll see someone wear a lovely top or skirt and it may influence us to purchase it too, but consider if the colour is right for your skin tone. While it may have looked amazing on the person wearing it, if it doesn’t suit your skin tone then it can leave you looking washed out instead of highlighting all your best features.
Tuck your shirt in
By tucking your shirt or blouse into your jeans or trousers, this will help to create a slimmer look and highlight your waist while also making your outfit look quite stylish. Not only will you look effortlessly cool, but by tucking your shirt or blouse in, it can also help your trousers or skirt stay in place if you have gone without a belt.
Add some accessories
Accessories can help to make or break a good stylish outfit. Stylists often use accessories to give an outfit that little extra something. Whether its statement earrings, a dazzling necklace, a simple belt or designer handbag, adding the right accessories can transform any look and take it to the next level.
These are just some simple tricks you can utilise when you’re putting together your next outfit or when you’re out on a clothes shopping spree. If you have any tips of your own that you’d like to share, simply use the hashtag #CharacterOfFashion
