Hello to all my wonderful, awesome bloggers! :3
Are y’all ready for a new blog post? Because I know I am!
In today’s rather informative post, I’ll give you the deluxe scoop on how I always stay stylish. It’s much, much easier than you think!
1. Play around with color.
If you pair your colors in a strategic way, you will shine regardless of the weather outside. Knowing how to pair colors is an extremely useful skill to have. Your outfits will definitely stand out from the crowd if you have this skill!
To find what works best for you, I suggest playing around with the different color relationships such as:
When you utilize monochromatic colors, you are utilizing tints and shades of the same hue. As you can see in the picture above, there are the brighter colors of the hue(the tints) and then there are the darker colors of the hue (the shades) So, for example: lime green, green, and dark green. When you use this monochromatic scheme for black, it ends up looking very beautiful. Try it out!
Complimentary colors are colors that are opposite of each other on the color wheel. This specific color relationship is particularly pleasing the eye. Red and green, purple and yellow, and yellow-orange and royal blue are a few examples.
This color relationship is my favorite. Color discord is when you use two colors that are widely separated on the color wheel. These color pairings can be visually unpleasant, but provide a jump of excitement. Examples are: Pink+yellow, pink+green and purple+red.
So with these color relationships in mind, go find what works best for you! Keep in mind that these are only three examples.mFeel free to find out the many other color relationships!
2. Create a unique/flattering silhouette with your clothing and play around with different combinations of silhouettes.
A silhouette is the shape created by wearing certain type of clothing. There are many silhouettes in fashion. These include neckline, sleeve, shirt, skirt, dress, and collar , pocket, and cuff silhouettes. Quite a lot, but I’ll only give examples of a few! If you would like a separate post on just silhouettes, please comment to let me know!
Here are some examples of single silhouettes or combinations of silhouettes I have created in my outfits:
Cropped top silhouette with A-Line skirt silhouette:
Shift dress silhouette:
Pullover shirt silhouette with straight skirt silhouette:
Now it’s your turn to discover new silhouette combinations!
3. Have a good pair of trusty pants or jeans in your closet.
There is no outfit that a good pair of pants or jeans cannot save! Outfits can take a new turn when a cute pair of pants or jeans comes into the picture. Here, these green cargo pants give the outfit some relaxed flair and added comfort. They are my own pair of trusty pants because they are comfortable AND cute:
4. Don’t be afraid to wear something that you wouldn’t see someone else wearing.
This does not mean go walking out in your underwear, but if you see a unique pair of shoes or dress that you want to wear, just wear it! Certain styles of clothing will always come back into style. For example, observe the 90s trend going around lately. Tank tops layered over shirts, mom jeans and chokers are all making a full circle. For these to come back into trend, somebody had to be the brave and wear it when it wasn’t “cool”. In addition, if you wear something that stands out from the crowd, you’re basically becoming a trendsetter! So go ahead, have no fear in fashion!
4. Have confidence and a bright smile.
With these two main weapons, your outfits will always look lovely and stylish. I guarantee you 100%! 😀
