Organize Your Closet
For dressing stylishly, organizing and editing your closet is essential. After all, how can you create a good outfit if you can’t even see what you own? Start by organizing your wardrobe and donating or selling anything that you don’t wear or like. Then, organize the remaining items into categories. Hang what should be hung and fold the rest. Also, organize your shoes so that you can easily visualize complete outfits. After doing that, your closet will be much more inspiring.
Find a Tailor
A good tailor can make even a wardrobe look designer. Whether it’s a pair of trousers, skirt or a dress, nothing beats a garment that’s perfectly fitted to you. Another great tip is to get your tailor to change cheap buttons to fancier styles. Doing so will make all your jackets and coats look infinitely more luxurious.
Top & Bottom Balance
For most of us, a successful look comes from finding the right balance. As such, it’s important to plan outfits where the top and bottom complement each other. If you’re wearing a loose shirt, try pairing it with tight pants, and if you’re wearing wide-leg pants or a full skirt, consider partnering it with a fitted or cropped top, a loose dress with 2 tiny belts etc.
Invest in Clothes that Work for Your Shape
Having an endless supply of outfits that look great on you requires strategic shopping. Actually, investing in designs that work for your body shape is essential. If you’re not sure what clothes work best for you, have a look at the items you already own and feel confident in them. If those high-rise skinny jeans and that silky dress are working for you, you should shop for other pieces with the same or similar silhouette. Then, experiment with different fabrics, colors, and embellishments while maintaining the confidence of knowing that you already look great in them.
Find Your Colors to Suit Your Skin Tone
This is very important! Have you ever wondered why some colors look great on you and others don’t? It’s because of your skin tone. To ensure every outfit you wear looks amazing, try filling your wardrobe with the colors that makes you feel confident & beautiful the most. If you have a cool complexion, shop for garments in colors like white, black, grey, silver, and blue. If your undertones are warm, stock up on designs in shades of brown, yellow, gold, olive, and red.
Buy These Essential Jackets
Do you know the must-have jackets for your closet? A tailored blazer, leather jacket, and denim jacket are the most important designs that are non-negotiable for every stylish woman. While a tailored blazer will have you covered for work and formal occasions, the denim jacket will take care of casual looks. The leather jacket, on the other hand, is perfect for edgy outfits and night outs.
Don’t Forget to Accessorize
Adding accessories is the final step to completing all your outfits. Whether it’s something like belt or necklaces, accessories have the power to transform your look from ehh to great! Therefore, it’s important to invest in good accessories and remember to wear them. Stylish shoes, bags, hats, sunglasses, and jewelry are all essential items to own and wear for a fashionable finishing touch. Check out my accessories shop on Instagram @olalastyles :)
Every woman knows the pain of being busy all the time and having to try and find something to wear. Instead of being late every day or always wearing the same thing, try some ready-to-wear outfits beforehand. Having stylish, pre-selected looks in your closet will make your days run smoothly, no matter how late you sleep in or late for a night out. Try preparing some on the weekend and hanging the pieces together in your closet so that they’re ready to go. Creating different options for formal, business, relax for school and casual occasions is also a very useful idea.
