We've all experienced how difficult it is to feel excited about dressing up for work from home. Even the former appeal of those enormous group calls no longer inspires much of a desire to look well. Now that the weather is hot, getting extra without accidently frying yourself has gotten much more difficult. Fashion. Is. Difficult.
And so, the greatest strategy to improve your appearance is to concentrate on small changes that yield large results with little effort. It's the method to make your clothes work – smarter, not harder. There are a dozen ways to style your basic tees and it takes a lot less time and energy than you think. Because if you love something, you should go all out to make it relevant.
The more-is-more philosophy that has dominated fashion in recent seasons has only gotten stronger, which makes a lot of us overwhelmed. But, "You gotta have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life. Without it, you’re nobody. I’m not talking about lots of clothes.” So says Diana Vreeland.
So, here are a few checklists to mind before getting into the process:
✓ Make a checklist, just like this one.
✓ Plan your outfit (for special occasions).
✓ Spend 70% of your budget on sustainable outfits.
✓ Understand your style.
✓ Mind the impulsive-buying behaviour.
Now that we’re all set, here are a few tweaks to add to spice up your entire look.
- Proportion Play: If you’re wearing baggy jeans, consider a bodycon top. But, for your basic tight leggings, opt for a loose blouse.
- Colour Palette: Any spectrum you choose will have its own aura. So, make sure to find monochromatic jewellery and match your top-to-toe pieces.
- Bling-Bling: Speaking of jewels, too much is almost always good. It is better to experiment and get out of your comfort zone to develop a personal bond with your go-to attire.
- Heads Up: Confidence is the key in rocking a brand new wardrobe. Put on your best smile and don’t let anyone define your choices. Invest in timelessness, not temporary pleasing.
