Having put-together and polished outfits can bring a great impression on you while making your outfits look more expensive. Whether you got that bohemian, edgy, or minimal, looking polish and sleek is essential. Though there’s no magical recipe or equation for achieving polish, keep on reading for our foolproof ways to pull your outfit together.
- Define your figure.
Always remember that it’s nearly impossible to feel polished in clothes that don’t fit you properly. So, know you body type and dress according to your figure. If you’re a pear-shaped woman, you may opt for a fit-and-flare dress that balances out your bottom half. Or, think of a belt that can define your waist instantly. Just go for a slim belt if you have a slender frame and a wide belt if you’re curvy to keep everything in proportion. If you got that straight body type without prominent curves, make use of ruffles, flares, and embellishments to add some volume to your figure.
- Choose your fabrics wisely.
Mix non-basic fabrics like chiffon, linen, and lace for an intriguing look, especially if you’re going for a monochromatic outfit. Also, be picky about your denim. Though you can still wear your favorite ripped jeans, opting for cleaner iterations will inevitably make you look more elevated. Like fashion editor Ece Sukan, you may think of trading your jeans with a printed skirt that will still look great when worn with your favorite sweater. To keep you breezy and chic in the summer, opt for breathable fabrics just like a lace top and free-flowing skirt that will make you beat the heat with style.
- Pick flattering colors for you.
You may have a few favorite colors you love to wear, but think how they can flatter your skin complexion and personality at the same time. Women with pale complexion look more flattering in light colors and pastels over black and gray. On the other hand, a woman with darker complexion looks more flattering in some shades of nude and brown. When going to a job interview, wear your power colors like black, white, gray, brown, blue, but avoid anything flashy like yellow or red.
- Add a third piece.
Always have some chic accessories on standby so you may opt for a third piece when assembling your outfit. When going for a statement necklace, let your jewelry steal the spotlight and avoid over-accessorizing. If you have a minimalist style, a pair of chic sunglasses and a nice belt may be enough for you. If you’re a woman with a trendy fashion personality, ring stacking, necklace layering, and arm party may sound appealing to you, but be careful overdoing the look. By heeding our simple foolproof tricks, you’ll be able to pull yor outfit together effortlessly and stylishly.
