The fashion industry keeps evolving by the day and there is no shortage of upcoming trends. If you love some style, then you will certainly strive to look your best as you step out. That said, looking chic can be easier said than done, especially when you are standing in front of your wardrobe with no clue what you should wear.
Fortunately, there are ways you can build a stylish yet functional wardrobe that will make you keep turning heads all year round. Here are some of the easy fashion hacks to always look chic.
Rehabilitate your wardrobe regularly
As time goes by, the items in your wardrobe become ill-fitting, go out of style or lose their purpose. It would be best to take time to cull your closet and get rid of anything you would no longer wear. Keep only what you need and love and organize how you can find new homes for your old clothes. As you cull your wardrobe, it would be an excellent idea to redefine your style and review the colors you are currently working with.
Avoid trendy items that will soon go out of style
It is okay to keep up with the newest trend in town. However, you need to think beyond the here and now and ask yourself whether you will wear that outfit in the next two years. If you can’t resist the need to buy trendy items, we suggest you buy a few pieces or try your hand at DIY projects. Another great alternative would be to spend your precious cash on timeless items or wardrobe basics, such as a leather jacket or a black sheath dress that you can pair with almost anything in your wardrobe.
Wear three colors at a time
An excellent pro tip that will make you look effortlessly chic would be to dress in three colors at a time, regardless of the patterns and prints in your cool lifestyle wear. Wearing three colors at a time also helps you narrow down your options if you are in a hurry and don’t have much time to plan your outfit. However, white doesn’t count as one of the colors in your fit. In addition to that, clothes with busy prints count as one color. The only thing you would need to do is incorporate colors already in the pattern to avoid looking too overwhelming.
Learn the art of thrifting
At the thrift store, you are bound to find lots of old and worn-out pieces that most people would consider to be trash. However, if you train your eye to look hard enough, you would be surprised to find some timeless pieces in good condition. You might even be lucky to find some original designer clothes or bags for a throwaway price! If you come across some good pieces at the thrift store that is torn or a little bit oversized, take them to your local tailor for any repairs and adjustments.
With these easy steps discussed above, we guarantee that you will always step out of the house looking fashionable. Don’t be afraid to let your wardrobe reflect your personality and sense of style!
