Ever feel unsure if you’ve coordinated the right outfit before stepping out of the house? With these fashion tips, you are sure never to have that question cross your mind again, because they are the best of all time.
1. Rolled-Up White Button-Downs
This may not be the most practical buy in the long-term because they have a short shelf life. However, the pros outweigh the cons because, just like Marilyn Monroe proved, they elevate jeans and keep skirts in place. So perhaps just buy three when you find the perfect style.
2. Accessorize With Brights
If you are one who likes to keep things plain and simple with the navy, black, grey, and whites, make sure you give a pop of color from your shoes or your bag. The added color of your accessory will really add some life to your outfit while keeping it classy at the same time.
3. Hem Your Pants To A Shoe Height
“The biggest mistake women make is wearing pants that aren’t the right length for their shoes,” says stylist Kate Young. It is recommended that the hem should just reach the tops of your shoes, and be between a 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch off the floor.
4. Never Buy A Boring Coat
“Outerwear should never be an afterthought,” says Holmes & Yang co-designer Jeanne Yang. “So many people only see you in your coat—if you’re not wearing something great underneath your trench, they’ll never even know!”
5. Make A List
If you make a list of your ten favorite items in your closet, you’ll have a great idea of what you will actually wear and figure out the things you keep at the back.
6. Know Your Stretch
It is sometimes hard to find the perfect fitting tee and even jeans that will hold their shape. For a formfitting tee, make sure it is 95% cotton and 5% Lycra spandex. To ensure you buy jeans that are going to hold their shape, they need to be at least 2% lycra.
