Maturity brings with it the need to change how people view us. If you have a good sense of fashion, you will look great and impress those around you. The tips below will explain it in more detail.
Only buy clothes that are flattering to your figure. Do not think that you must have every fashion trend that is available, even if it does not look good on you. No matter how trendy an item is, if it is not flattering to your figure, don’t consider buying it.
Putting your hair up casually is a wonderful way to make your hair get off your shoulders. You do not want your hair to get in your busy days ahead. When there’s no time to mess with your hair, simply use an elastic to sweep your locks into a messy-but-charming bun.
Choose items to add to your wardrobe that make sense for your lifestyle. If you spend most of your time in jeans, then buy the best looking and best-fitting jeans that you can afford. The money you spend on an item for your wardrobe that you wear regularly is always a good investment.
A great fashion tip is to always dress appropriately depending on where you’re going. This is especially important for parties because so many different parties require their own special attire that guests are expected to wear. You don’t want to show up to a cocktail party under dressed or do the exact opposite.
If you notice your nail polish is becoming too thick, do not despair. Try adding a few drops of acetone based polish remover into the bottle. Shake, and check the consistency. Continue to do this until it is useable again. You will extend the use of your polish, and save money in the process.
Build your wardrobe around basic staples that you can mix and match easily. Some key pieces include a little black dress, a fitted jacket and matching skirt, a tailored pair of slacks in a neutral color and a pair of dark, fitted trouser jeans. These items can take your almost anywhere paired with the right top and/or accessories.
For a skinnier yet fashionable look, disguise those extra pounds with a black blouse worn over dark pants or a dark skirt. Dark colors slim you down by causing the eyes to go to your jewelry and accessories. You should wear skirts with elastic waistbands if you are concerned about comfort.
Whenever you travel, carry along easy to coordinate, neutral colored items you can quickly mix and match. You don’t need to fret about clashing colors and you can put together different looks with the few pieces you have. Use belts and scarves as accessories to help you appear pulled-together.
If you have “problem” hair, you may be washing it too much. It’s not always a good idea to wash your hair daily. When you do this, you strip natural oils and end up with a chemical buildup on your hair. If you must wash your hair daily, use gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner and don’t scrub your hair. Just stroke the product through it and let it rinse out gently under warm, running water. Allow your hair to air dry rather than blow-drying.
Visit consignment stores for great value on formal wear. Women usually only wear formal gowns once or twice for those special occasions before they do not want to wear it anymore. You can find gowns that are almost brand new at a fraction of the price of a new gown.
