It’s all about fashion for us this season and we’ll love to assist you in making memorable fashion statements at work, school, and everywhere you show up. Here are things you should consider on your journey to becoming a more stylish woman.
Feed your wardrobe
To an extent, your wardrobe discloses both your financial and social status. Invest your money where you can see it – hanging in your closet. Set out a budget for monthly shopping; one good shoe a month will add 12 new shoes to your wardrobe in a year. You can alternate what you buy every month but try to feed your wardrobe at least once a month.
Know what to wear to where
One secret of becoming stylish is knowing the most appropriate outfit for every occasion. Don’t be the odd girl that wears stilettos to a beach party or goes to the gym in a dress. If you don’t have an idea of an event’s dress code, don’t be shy to ask google, she knows everything.
Make a statement
Anytime you are getting dressed, whether for work or for a party, be sure to include one eye-catchy item. It could be your shoes, belt or hat, just add that thing that someone will most likely drop a nice comment on. However, resist the urge to wear all-comment-worthy items at a time, as this will only make you appear silly and over-dressed.
Every woman has one common problem of not having what to wear out even when their wardrobe is overflowing. Be different and stock your wardrobe with a little of every kind of piece. Having different kinds of outfits makes you a more stylish woman.
You need to have what to wear to a beach, a birthday party, a wedding, a formal function without having to shop on the spot. Be versatile when you shop, even when you don’t have an immediate need for that item – it will come in handy during fashion emergencies.
Adopt your root
African inspired outfits are really beautiful and something you need to add to your wardrobe. There are a lot of styles made from African prints that can be worn on both formal and casual occasions, incorporate a few into your dressing.
Old school is the new sexy and gives you a classy, expensive look. You can get some good vintage dresses, hats and other good stuff that tell a history. For instance, palazzo pants was a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but it’s back again and ladies are rocking it in 2017. This special-cut trousers, when worn with a fitted top tucked in, gives a matured look of a classy lady who loves her freedom.
Stay stylish always!
