Perhaps you’re already in search of the right wardrobe and perhaps you even love fashion, but you still sometimes get the feeling it’s not exactly right for you. If this is the case, I’d say you have too many things in your closet that bore you, or not enough quality pieces that really suit you. We’re usually born with certain sense of style, but both your fashion sense and wardrobe can improve with the help of a few tips.
Opt for shoes
It’s obvious that quality footwear is a good investment. You will never regret spending a bit more on a comfortable and interesting pair of shoes, because it will elevate your entire style. This goes for flat shoes as well as high heels; quality ballet flats and sneakers are no exception. Even if you wear your everyday, basic pieces, quality footwear will be the frosting on the cake, and the same holds true for men as well.
Swap the black
With the onset of the colder season the stores are already well stocked with autumn pieces, but before you decide on a new, completely black wardrobe, take a breath and opt for a different option. I’m not advising you to make a drastic change, because I know that black is quite wearable during the winter, but still, try to swap it for grey or beige, because they’re lighter and simply more beautiful.
Casual, yet elegant
I spend a lot of time wearing jeans and I always feel great, styling them with high heels and a blazer. This is where casual meets elegant, and to me that’s a great combination, so grateful and simple, and it always works. There are never enough blazers and they don’t all have to be dark; I often wear a soft powder colored one, as well as dark brown, dark blue, and white–almost exclusively with jeans.
Prints and lace
If sometimes you feel like your closet is beyond boring and there’s nothing going on, opt for some prints and lace. The latter, especially in Boho style (i. e. lace blouses, tunics, and dresses), are very wearable. Print, on the other hand, takes care of the playful side of things, for instance styling basic jeans with a printed blouse, a printed dress (even floor-length), or a printed floral blazer (these are going to become even more trendy) are all smart choices for those, who don’t like an abundance of everything.
Easy on the colours
I am all for colours and I generally like them, but I find the “Desigual” wave slightly too intrusive. True elegance requires no more than three colours, and so use this as a general guideline to follow. Three complementary colours always make a great choice and as long as you keep this in mind, you should have no trouble composing your new wardrobe. Take your hair colour into consideration as well; I notice more and more women, who decide on red after they turn 50. I have nothing against that, but remember that red requires a special wardrobe, and there are no exceptions.
