Have you ever visited a store, looked at an outfit, and decided that you can never pull it off, even though it looks great on display?
You aren’t alone. We all have that moment. And while we might tell ourselves that our appearance doesn’t matter, at the end of the day it does.
Studies show that stylish and fashionable people are more likely to be successful in life. You can be one of them. All you need to do is style yourself well, and you can make any outfit look amazing. Here are some secrets you need to follow.
How to accessorize a perfect finish to every outfit
1. Choose the right accessories
The right accessories can make any outfit stand out for the right reasons. Make sure you select the right colored accessories.
For instance, Just like they say, do as the Romans do, we would say do as the New Yorkers do. When you are in New York, a Leather Jacket is a perfect option to go for. How you amp up your style game with the right accessories is all that matters in the end. Add some color to your look by selecting contrasting-colored accessories if the color of your jacket is beige or light blue.
These days, the fashion industry has moved on to making bold statements through its styles, cuts, and prints. Even if you select a simple outfit, make sure you incorporate bold-colored accessories to it to become the center of attention.
You might be concerned about going overboard. Don’t worry about it! Unless you wear a bunch of glaringly different-colored accessories, you will be good to go.
2. Use belts creatively
Do you tend to use belts merely on your pants? If so, you are missing out! There is a lot more a strap can offer to an outfit, especially if it is layered.
Let’s say you are wearing an outfit that features more than one layer. You put on a plain shirt, and because it is cold outside, you decide to wear a jacket or cloak as well. Merely draping the different layers on top of one another won’t seal the deal.
To make it look like a proper outfit, you can make use of a belt. Strap it all together near your waste and watch as your entire look suddenly seems put together. Also, this method helps complement your figure as well.
3. Cuff your jeans up
Wearing a given outfit with jeans? Either you can choose to be plain old boring and wear your jeans the usual way. Or, you can make it look better by cuffing your jeans up to your ankles.
Spice things up by alternating between the usual way of wearing jeans and cuffing them up. When you do so, the same outfit can look different! Furthermore, it is also a great excuse to show off your footwear.
Remember, each of your accessories plays an essential role in making your outfit look amazing.
4. Choose the right footwear
An outfit needs more than itself to look amazing. Even if a given dress is the prettiest of all, if you don’t pair it up with the right footwear, it can end up looking disastrous!
Think of it this way. You won’t wear a gown with cowboy boots, right? Certain things don’t match. For instance, black attire and bright orange pumps might be dubbed as a fashion disaster by some.
If you want to make an outfit look amazing, always select your footwear very carefully. You don’t necessarily have to stick to neutral and solid colors. You can choose to add an aesthetic punch by selecting printed flats and brightly colored wedges. The only catch is to ensure that it all looks put together.
5. Be original
Whether it be a button-down or a printed oversized T-shirt, any outfit can look amazing if you give it the right treatment.
Some people tend to wear button-down shirts as an additional layer. Others choose to knot their shirts from the front to give their look a pop. Think of the vibe you want your outfit to have. Are you trying to be hip and trendy? Or professional?
Depending on what the occasion is and what you think your style statement should be, decide the treatment you want to give your outfit. This can range from layering it in unconventional ways or merely knotting it.
6. Feel confident in your skin
Believe in yourself. When you look in the mirror, remind yourself that you look terrific. Sometimes, we are the ones who bring ourselves down.
Every generation has a given body type that is revered. There was a time when being extremely thin and tall was considered beautiful. Now, having a healthy body size is actively promoted on different platforms.
Regardless of which body type is put on a pedestal, the fact remains that every generation has an ideal beauty standard that all others somehow feel pressured to follow. And sometimes, it is impossible to follow them. This leads to body image issues.
We always compare ourselves to celebrities and their unachievable beauty. You see ads of stars looking great in certain outfits, and you tell yourself that it won’t look good on you. This is a mindset that you have to overcome. Once you become confident, every outfit will look amazing.
And this is the ultimate secret you need to know!
Verdict: You can make anything look amazing!
All in all, any outfit can be made to look amazing. All you need to have is a creative mind and the right outlook in life.
Think of the occasion you want to wear the outfit in. Then, proceed to decide how you can play around with the outfit to make it look better. Should you pair it up with cuffed jeans? Or a belt? Vibrant colored accessories and pumps?
Answer it all depending on what you want your style statement to be. Just remember, you will look good in anything as long as you believe in yourself. Your outfit will only be amazing if you firmly believe that you are amazing. Yes, it is slightly narcissistic. But, sometimes, this is all we need!
