If you’re bored of your current wardrobe and want to try out a new look, it doesn’t always have to mean that you have to invest in a whole new set of clothes. Of course, a few new garments are always welcome if you just want to wear something different, but there are also ways to elevate your current clothes with little to no effect on your wallet.
Elevating your style all starts with you understanding what kind of clothes and colours suit you in the first place. From there, you can choose the garments that look great on you and avoid the ones that don’t bring out your best side.
Nothing says elegance like a garment that fits like a glove. Certain garments, like shirts, jackets and suits, benefit especially from a touch of tailoring as they can often be too loose or tight in places. Tailoring makes a garment almost professional in appearance, which is great news for work suits which look miles better after it has been altered to fit your body.
Tailoring is a great way to refresh your wardrobe. If you don’t want to give away a beloved item or buy something new, add a new accessory or give it a whole new cut and enjoy it for longer. And although many think tailoring is an elite hobby, it’s actually cheaper (and more sustainable) than buying new clothes.
Often overlooked because they can’t be seen under an outfit, undergarments play a crucial role in your overall look. Depending on the kind of garment your wearing, especially if it’s tight fitting or transparent, you need to choose your underwear carefully, so it doesn’t disrupt the flow of your outfit.
Investing in something like a luxury bra will help you style plenty of tricky outfits. Not only do they provide support, but they also add a whole load of style if you want it to show it off in your outfit too.
Get Colour Matched
It’s amazing how many people don’t know which colours suit them best. Depending on your skin tone, there are colours that work better and bring out your finest features.
If you’re unsure about what colours suit you best, seek professional advice as they can reveal which colour palette is best which will then influence what colour clothes you buy and what colour you dye your hair. In the world of fashion, colour is everything!
Layer Layer Layer
Your best friend comes wintertime, layering is a great way to utilise your clothes all year round. Simply by popping a chic t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt under your favourite dress can you enjoy it during the colder months too. Don’t be afraid to layer with jewellery too; outfits need a bit of sparkle sometimes!
