Do you ever look at some women and wonder how they always look put together? You know, those women who seem to effortlessly pull off any outfit they wear, with perfect hair, makeup, and accessories to match. I've created a list of twenty style secrets to help you achieve the same level of elegance.
1. Create a Personal Style
We all have someone whose style we admire, but if you really want to stand out as a woman who always looks her best, you need to create a personal style. Allow your personality to shine through everything you wear.
2. Wear Modified Versions of Trends
Sometimes, you might feel pressured to keep up with the trends, but not all trends are for everyone. Don't be afraid to create and wear a modified version if you're uncomfortable wearing a particular trend.
3. Find What Colors Work for You
Colors look different on everyone based on their skin tone and undertones. When shopping for clothing, select the colors that flatter your complexion. If you have a warm undertone, colors like reds, corals, ambers, and ivory will suit you. Look out for emeralds, purples, pinks, and bright blues if you have a cool undertone.
4. Always Wear Classy Shoes
Your shoe choice could make or break your outfit. Invest in a few high-quality pairs of shoes that you can dress up or down. Women who always look put together know that the right pair of shoes can effortlessly transform you from a classy daytime look to a fun night out.
5. Always Have a Backup Outfit
Last-minute fashion emergencies can happen to anyone. Always have a backup outfit, whether it's for work, a formal event, or a casual outing. A backup outfit will ensure you always look your best, even when there's been a faux pas with your original outfit.
6. Wear Neutral Colors
Black, white, beige, and navy are classic colors that never go out of style. Neutral colors are a staple in every well-dressed woman's wardrobe. They're versatile and can be paired with almost anything.
7. Find Yourself a Great Tailor
Buying clothes off the rack only works for some people. But with some adjustments, a well-tailored outfit can make any clothing look expensive and custom-made. Find a tailor who understands your body type, and invest in a few key pieces that have been tailored to perfection.
8. Don't Buy Something You Can't Make an Outfit With
It's easy to get carried away and buy clothes just because they're on sale or look cute. However, if you can't think of at least two or three outfits to wear it with, it's probably not worth the purchase.
9. Master a 5-Minute Hairstyle
There will be days when you don't have enough time to spend several minutes styling your hair. Mastering a cute 5-minute hairstyle will ensure you always look your best, even when you put less effort into styling your hair.
10. Have a Few Non-Iron Outfits
Invest in a few classy pieces that you don't need to iron. It's always good to have a few low-maintenance options in your closet for those busy days when you need to look polished but don't have time to iron.
11. Find Your Go-To Brands
Find a brand whose aesthetic matches your style and clothes fit just right and flatter your body type, then stick with them. Having a go-to brand will make clothes shopping much more effortless.
12. Don't Sacrifice Comfort
There's an old saying that beauty is pain, but that isn't true; you should never sacrifice comfort for style. There are so many clothing options available that are both stylish and comfortable; you'll never have to sacrifice one for the other.
13. Get Regular Manicures
Having well-groomed nails will make a massive difference in your appearance. Looking your best isn't only about having the right outfit; it's your overall appearance. Regular manicures and pedicures will ensure you always have that polished look.
14. Have a Quick Everyday Makeup Routine
While your goal should be to always look bright and flawless, there's no need for an elaborate makeup routine that takes several hours daily. Create a quick, everyday makeup routine that works for you and only takes a few minutes.
15. Take Care of Your Accessories
Accessories are small pieces, but they can really elevate your look. They're timeless pieces you can wear for years if you take good care of them. Any accessories you wear should be clean and in good condition.
16. Invest in Outerwear
There's just something about a high-quality jacket that will take your outfit to the next level. A well-made coat or jacket can last years and keep you warm and stylish during the colder months.
17. Wear Clothes That Flatter Your Shape
Everyone's body is unique. What looks good on someone else might not necessarily look good on you. Experiment with different styles to find what works best for you and your specific body type.
18. Wear Clothing that Makes You Feel Expensive
Clothing doesn't have to be expensive to make you feel expensive. Wear clothes that make you feel confident regardless of the price tag. If you feel radiant, it will show in the way you carry yourself.
19. Follow a Skin Care Routine
Follow a skincare routine that works for you and your skin type. This will improve your skin's look and give you a healthy glow that will make you feel confident.
20. Practice Good Posture
Never underestimate the power of a good posture. Sitting and standing straight can make you look taller, slimmer, and more confident. Plus, you'll immediately command any room you enter.
