9 Tips to Feel Beautiful in Your Clothes
Want to become more chic and fashionable? There are many ways to look and feel great without splurging, including using coupon codes and sales. Learning the best ways to dress for your body type and lifestyle are also key to feeling fabulous in your clothes.
Here are nine other tips for picking out clothes that make you feel beautiful:
1. Pay close attention to fit
One of the worst fashion mistakes is wearing clothing that is too small or too large, both of which are unflattering and uncomfortable. Give away, donate or toss out anything in your wardrobe that has no hope of fitting well anytime soon.
2. Pick versatile pieces
We have all gone out and bought an outfit that was only suitable for one occasion, and then banished it to the back of the closet, never to be worn again. Even if you are shopping for a particular holiday or event, resolve to buy pieces that can be re-worn at a different time and place.,
3. Embrace your style
There is nothing wrong with knowing what you like and sticking to it. If teal is your thing and you don’t care for red clothes, fill your closet with teal. If tunics make you feel great, but you don’t feel confident in sleeveless shirts, grab tunics in colors and designs that you love. Just because something is a trend doesn’t mean you need to adopt it, especially if it is the opposite of what you like wearing.
4. Pare down your wardrobe
Having options in your closet is nice, but having overflowing racks and hangers that look disheveled and overwhelming should be avoided. Make it a habit to give away or donate at least one old item whenever you by new clothes.
5. Hold off on major splurges
It can be tempting to go out and buy a hoard of new clothes, especially when you are bored with your wardrobe or there are tons of sales going on. However, it is best on your wallet and your fashion arsenal to invest in quality, versatile pieces rather than a pile of new outfits.
6. All bargains aren’t good
Even if something is on clearance at a crazy-low price, don’t bother buying it if it doesn’t fit well, won’t flatter your body type or if you don’t care much for the look of it. You are not saving money if the clothes don’t get worn.
7. Don’t abandon your favorites
It is perfectly fine to have a set type of clothing that looks good on you, whether that is skinny jeans and caftans or maxi dresses and light sweaters. Feel free to buy pieces that are similar to your favorites, especially if it comes in a different color, pattern or fabric.
8. Venture out
If you feel like your style has become boring, it may be because you are constantly shopping the same brands. Branch out a bit and look into labels you haven’t worn before that are in your budget range to revamp your look.
9. Consider building a capsule wardrobe
A capsule wardrobe isn’t just a trend, it is a practical way to save space in your home and find out what clothing makes you look and feel the best. Plus, you will never get stuck when it comes to figuring out what to wear, regardless of the occasion.
Developing true style isn’t about spending gobs of money on clothes, shoes and accessories, but learning what works best for you. Start by examining the clothes you already have, and then commit to carefully curating any new pieces that you buy. In no time you will become a confident style maven and feel good in all your clothes.
