With the daily influx of fashion images, it’s sometimes hard to figure out how to dress yourself, especially if you’re only beginning to find your footing with your fashion sense. But there’s a big difference between fashion and style. If you want to be more timeless, you should put more emphasis on style—it being the measure of how well you can dress yourself. This week, we school you on how you can overcome fashion and how you can let some style into your wardrobe. Read on!
1. Avoid trendy pieces. Most fashion victims love to pile on trends, resulting in a Christmas tree-like effect. But as a rule, if you have to think twice about the trend, leave it for another season. Or don't pick it up at all.
2. Dress for your age. The saying goes, "If you were young enough the first time around, you're definitely too old for the second time."
3. Work with your body. Look in the mirror and really look at your body. Wear clothes that flatter your shape and size. Always aim for the right fit.
4. Flaunt your assets. No body is perfect, but with the right clothes, you can fool the eye into seeing the right proportions. Zoom in on your assets and work them appropriately. Nice shoulders? Add a halter neckline into the mix. Hourglass figure? Get something that flatters your tiny midsection.
