These are the Top 10 Fashion Tips from Stylish Women
It can be difficult to balance work, family and personal life. But it is possible! Our Stylists, the most fashionable Stylish Women we know, shared their secrets for unlocking the next level in style.
PLANN IT OUT
You can’t plan for everything but you shouldn’t let your mornings get in the way. You can plan for a week of meals on Sunday, but outfit planning is a great way to save time.
SEEK OUT (STYLISH INSPIRATION)
“Find fashionable women to follow, whether it’s your favourite Instagram style star or your best friend’s cousin. Find fashionistas who inspire you and then use their photos to help you plan your outfits (see tip 1). Are you unsure where to begin? For endless inspiration, check out our Pinterest and Instagram boards.
If in doubt, (OVER-)DRESS
If you are ever unsure about what to wear, think about your destination and the people you will be meeting. If in doubt, go more formal. You don’t want to look too formal if you are worried about your appearance. To give your look an effortless chic touch, add a casual layer such as a jean jacket or cargo jacket.” Angela G., stylist
Get out of your comfort zone
It’s never a bad idea to try something different. You can try something new, whether it’s a bold new color or a shift in your style from skinny jeans to boyfriend-style pants. You never know what new trends you might love.” — Jennifer M., stylist
“Always wear at least one accessory. It can be a statement necklace or a bag with a pop of color, or great earrings, but you should try to wear it all. An accessory that stands out can transform an outfit from boring to outstanding in a matter of seconds.” –Stylist Stephania S.
CRAFT A CAPSULE WARDROBE
A capsule wardrobe is a stylist’s secret weapon. It can make it easy to mix and match items with ease, which can simplify your morning. “Invest in timeless classics like great jeans, simple LBDs and timeless jewelry.
TRY A STATEMENT SHOE
“Color, print, and style pack a big aesthetic punch when it comes to footwear. They don’t need to be high heels either. Flats can make the same statement, and your feet will appreciate it. Even if you don’t have a formal look, a printed flat or a bright-colored wedge can make it seem more planned.” Jennifer M., stylist.
OWN AT LEAST ONE CONVERSATION PIECE
Every once in awhile, you need the “wow” factor. You need something to show off your style, whether it’s a pair of amazing boots that go over the knee, a vintage dress you borrowed from your mom, or a handbag.
Learn about your body’s shape
“The golden rule for stylish women?” Fit first. Knowing your body shape is crucial. If you are a petite pear shape, do you prefer to show off your shoulders? “Stylist Crista G.: Build your closet with clothes that highlight your shape and favorite features.”
Age is only a number
If you’re looking to try a new style or wear a piece that grabs your attention, don’t let that stop you from trying it. Are you 62 years old and want to wear a pair of boyfriend jeans with your new style? It’s possible! Are you 22 years old and looking to transform your closet into a business-first, buttoned-up space? “Button it up!” –Stylist Megan S.
