How to always look stylish

Choose your accessories wisely
The first tip to look stylish is to add accessories to your outfit. I definitely feel like an outfit is empty without accessories so don’t hesitate to add a belt, a hat, a purse or statement earrings. It can completely transform your overall look and can make a simple white tee and black jeans outfit look more fashionable. A unique shaped bag can also be an accessory and can seriously change a look, so consider it next time you style an outfit.
Don’t under-estimate hair accessories
My second tip kind of merges into my first one but it’s to add a hair accessory to your outfit. That could be a hat, a statement hair tie, a head band or trendy hair clips. I seriously think hair accessories are under-rated, they can really take your look to whole new level and make any outfit look less boring in my opinion. Also, sometimes, I really don’t know what to do with my hair so adding a hair accessory saves my life.
Go for timeless pieces
My third tip is to mainly go for timeless pieces such as denim jeans, a blazer or leather shorts. Going for timeless pieces make your look look timeless and I think that’s the main thing that makes an outfit look extremely fashionable and makes you look put together and chic!
Choose at least one trendy piece
My fourth tip is to go for at least one trendy piece in your outfit that you can add to your timeless pieces. That could be an accessory like a leopard belt or fanny pack. But it could also be a top, like for exemple a leopard shirt with a simple leather skirt and pearl hair clips. Overwhelming your outfit with too many trendy pieces can make you look a little bit cheap hence why I love mixing my unique pieces with some timeless and neutral pieces. Of course, you need to stay up to date with the trends, because trendy pieces are not timeless and they go out of style after a few seasons. It’s therefore important to stay up to date with what’s trendy in the fashion industry.
When I style an outfit, I always take care of the proportions and how the clothes fit on me. What I mean by that is that usually when I wear a cropped top, I like to wear high waisted bottoms. And, if I wear a mini skirt, I like to wear a blazer to balance everything out. On top of that, I usually make sure my clothes fit well on my body, unless I want the clothes to be oversized but for a me, a well put together outfit should fit your body perfectly.
Mix and match
My fifth tip is not to be afraid to mix your patterns and combine your colours. A fashion forward outfit is an outfit that pushes the boundaries and that practically look different and…stylish. And I definitely think combining colours and mixing patterns can be extremely nice when you do it nicely. For instance, you can combine a pastel pink trouser with a beige tank top and beige blazer. Matching colours in your outfit can also be extremely fashionable like wearing a full beige outfit (different shades of beige), for exemple. Or like, a full black outfit.
Beware of the details
A well thought of outfit is obviously in the details and that’s what will make you stand out as a true fashion stylist. When you style an outfit think about everything from the shoes, to the purse, to your bracelet to your makeup, because in fashion, everything counts. According to Kapferer, a well-established researcher in luxury management, luxury is all about the extravagance in the details. If you want to look put together and high fashion, then don’t omit the details.
This brings me to my last tip which is self care! I definitely think that taking care of how you look (makeup, nails and hair) can change your outfit and make you look more put together. That means having clean nails, wearing a little bit of makeup and fixing your hair. This is of course my opinion, again, you do whatever you want and I will never judge you!
