Yes Clothes , they are the next big thing in a girl's life. A static problem that surrounds every girl and a woman in almost every aspect. So today's article is about "How to dress effectively" in 5 Steps. I have been in this situation several times when I had to get ready for a party or a meeting or meet a friend for a coffee or lunch - I pulled up everything in the wardrobe and felt like I have nothing to wear. Whereas in reality I have so many things to wear , but how functional and practical am I with my shopping choices and organizational skills with my wardrobe. Here is how I broke it down for everybody who have had the same feeling.
1. Accept Yourself
No , we are not perfect. We need to learn to co-exist with our flaws and camouflage them. Do not compare with something unrealistic and play with your wardrobe choices. You need to exactly learn your body type and what works for you. For example if you have well toned legs , but not so perfect waist or shoulder, play it down . Try mini skirts or mini gowns that exposes your legs but camouflages the flaws.
2. Play bright colors
Even some basics in bright colors would do the job sometimes. Make some intuitive choices when picking outfits , do not think too much. Trust some colors like neon greens and neon pinks , they create a statement look irrespective of the price you put on the outfit. You can even wear a neon over sized shirt and walk into a party.
3. Capsule Wardrobes
Create capsule wardrobes for various purposes or just by season. Group at least 30 pieces in your wardrobe into one clothing rack and pair them up with multiple separates over and over. In the process try not to reach out beyond your capsule wardrobe. For example , when you have to rush for work and you do not find the right outfit , it is kind of frustrating and stalls your thinking creating a delay. At times like this capsule wardrobes play an important role . Create one for your work wear.
4. Skin show mystery
This is something like a taboo that we do not want to talk about , but it consciously exists within us. The rules of skin show are very simple. Do not go overboard , looking and feeling attractive is not based on how naked you are. "One skin at a time" rule is always the best one to choose. For example - when you expose the neck and shoulder , Hide your legs (choose a long gown). A little bit of mystery is always a nice touch.
5. Comfort First
Do not die for extreme fashion choices. What ever you wear should be loved by your body and accepted by your skin. Otherwise you are going to end up sulking all day. Always make it work for you , choose the right sizes and even over sized. When you make sure about the comfort level , you get to know your personal style very well. Fashion changes drastically , but you need to build your personal style to make it look unique. Your comfort is your god in your fashion.
