The world of fashion is constantly changing; trends and styles shift at dizzying speeds, and to those of us that don’t work in the industry or are casual observers, it can be overwhelming trying to keep up and stay fashionable. Fortunately, there are great ways for you to remain stylish without burning yourself out, trying to mimic the latest editorial page of your favourite fashion magazine.
Let’s take a look at some surprisingly easy fashion tips that you can incorporate into your dressing habits to improve your overall style.
Curate a Personalised Wardrobe
Having a personalised and curated wardrobe is basically having complementary colour schemes together with choosing the clothing items that resonate with your style so that you’ll spend lesser time pondering over what outfit you’ll wear every morning.
One of the most cognizant methods of doing this is to resist the ever-present urge to impulse buy fast-fashion items, and instead, focus on the essentials that you already have and have been ignoring. If you feel like shopping for items to add to your collection, choose versatile pieces which can seamlessly fit into your style. In this way, you won’t spend too much time fiddling through clothes you know you’ll never wear.
Arrange & Organise
One of the most effective ways of knowing the clothes you have in your collection is to declutter them; take the time to clean arrange and organise all your clothing items, from undergarments to dresses, from outerwear and even shapewear for women items. If you have clothing pieces that do not fit your style anymore or have not worn in well over a year, then it’s time to toss them out, recycle them, or even donate them to someone else.
In this way, you can avoid reaching for the easiest thing to wear, and instead, have a better view of your own outfit style, be it that gorgeous dress or that familiar abdominal binder that helps to boost your confidence.
Make Ethical Shopping Decisions
Unlike in the past, we are blessed with a multitude of information about our fashion purchases today. What better way to develop a stylish personal style than to add a more ethical approach to fashion? You can begin to do this by taking a second to consider a few essential questions: where was this item made, were the workers treated fairly, does it have any environmental impact from its production, and were animals harmed in the production process?
In addition, for clothes that you no longer wish to wear, you can either exchange it with your friends or convert unwanted pieces into products that you can repurpose, like using an old T-shirt as a cleaning rag.
Making more ethical decisions in your shopping, such as supporting eco-friendly or cruelty-free brands can go a long way in helping you improve your outfit style into a more socially-conscious one. What’s more, even activities such as thrift shopping can reduce your carbon footprint, so make your shopping trips more green today!
