Smart Investment: How To Dress Better

There is a common belief that true fashion experts are those who blindly follow trends and are able to spend a great deal of money on the designer clothes. However, fashion is far from wrapping yourself into every single trendy and chic item you heard about. The recent preliminary findings show that the clothes we wear affect our brains. For this reason, it is important to find and develop a style that would resemble your personality. And it doesn’t necessarily have to cost you an arm and leg no matter what.

Take a look into your wardrobe

Before you start shopping everything that comes out for the next season, check your wardrobe. Even though trends change so rapidly, many of them are just a throwback and there is a possibility that you already own some of the ‘newest’ things. Furthermore, pay attention to what colors and clothing items you need to purchase so that you can match them with your clothes. You won’t be thrilled with a wardrobe full of same things and nothing to pair them with.

What is really worth money?

Besides, think about your preferences. Do you prefer having a closet cluttered by cheap tops from Kmart or a few nice clothes? The best way is to find balance. It is definitely beneficial to invest a little bit more of money in classics that are never out-of-fashion. A few qualitative clothes will provide you endless combining options. Plus, they will last longer.

Therefore, consider the following every woman’s ‘must haves’: blazer, dark skinny jeans, midi skirt, white shirt, cashmere jumper, check trousers. And don’t forget a little black dress. It is classic, but elegant and sophisticated, suitable for any occasion. On the other hand, don’t waste your money on tops, hoodies and sportswear. Even when you wear jeans and basic top, you can look fashionable and stylish with appropriate shoes and bag.

Don’t be penny-pitching when it comes to shoes

As Taylor Momsen said, “You can wear anything as long as you put a nice pair of shoes with it.” Thankfully, there are many brands that offer qualitative, yet affordable footwear. Therefore, dress better in 2018 winter months by wearing ankle or knee boot.

For summer season casual outfit, opt for Palmaira Sandals that have already become a huge hit. On the other hand, purchase transparent PVC heels for special occasions as they are about to be trend of the season. When choosing the right pair of shoes, don’t just think about fashion, but comfort as well.

Nor bags

As it’s already mentioned, any outfit can look stylish with proper accessories. Therefore, if you decide to invest in a designer handbag, definitely opt for fringe. It could be seen on the runways from Fendi to Michael Kors to Dior. Also, consider stripped Celine handbags or Zimmermann wicker baskets. However, if you aren’t on that large budget, there are always cheaper brands to consider, such as the Zara mini bucket bag.

Make a statement

In order to make a statement, invest in few trendy seasonal pieces that you can easily combine with classics. Trends for upcoming season have already been represented and some of them are absolutely stunning. First of all, nice lavender color and all shades of pink are about to be main colors of the season. Apparently, pastels are here to stay.

When it comes to prints, floral print is back again, but this time in retro way and bigger and more colorful than ever before. Also, plaid skirt, pants, or even coat is this season’s statement makers. Since such trends come and go in a very short period of time, you don’t have to purchase designer clothes that you would wear only a couple of times. Instead, visit local shopping malls and search for more affordable brands such as H&M, Forever 21 or Cotton On.

As you can see, you don’t have to keep up with every single trend that appears in the fashion magazine in order to be fashionable. As long as you know how to combine clothes and wear what suits your body and character, you are the woman who makes everybody turn around.
