Top 10 Style Advice Tips Every Woman Should Follow…
#1 Show Skin Strategically
Angelina Jolie’s style Jen Rade puts it perfectly: “Choose one body part only and show it off. If it’s cleavage, don’t show your legs. If it’s legs, stay covered on top.”
#2 Tailor Your Pants Appropriately
“The biggest mistake women make is wearing pants that aren’t the right length for their shoes,” says stylist Kate Young. InStyle recommends that “hems should just graze the tops of your shoes and be from 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch off the floor.”
#3 Embrace Your Shape
“Once you know which silhouettes flatter you, filter trends ruthlessly,” says designer Shoshanna Gruss. Find the best styles for your body type and stick with them.
#4 Only Buy Shoes You Can Walk In
We’ve all been there, enduring the pain of an incredibly sexy shoe. Skip the pain and save yourself some money. If you try a pair of shoes on in the store and they’re ridiculously hard to walk in, leave them behind.
#5 If You Feel Uncomfortable, You Probably Look Uncomfortable
If you are wearing something that doesn’t make you feel comfortable, it shows. Not only does it show on your face, but the energy you give off is uncomfortable. Stick with pieces that make you feel confident.
#6 Check Your Lighting
White clothing always becomes more see-through in the day time, so make sure you check with proper lighting before leaving the house.
#7 Always Have Basics on Hand
Basics include black and white cotton tees, a little black dress, a comfortable (yet stylish) pair of pumps, a great pair of denim, and red lipstick. Always have the basics on hand so you need never worry about a go-to!
#8 Protect Your Leather and Suede
Real suede and leather pieces can be expensive and require special care. Make sure you protect your suede and leather items to ensure their longevity, and your money’s worth.
#9 Always Read the Label
Don’t throw a fabulous piece of clothing down the drain because you failed to read the label. Make sure you always read the tag on your nice clothing to confirm “dry clean only” isn’t the only wash option. You will also learn which pieces require hot and cold washes to keep their shape and color.
#10 Don’t Forget the Double-Sided Tape
Double-sided tape can keep your plunging neckline in place and ensure fashion mishaps never come your way. If you don’t dare to bear your neckline for fear of a nip-slip, double-sided tape is the end-all cure.
