Isn’t it oh so much better when we know that we look our best? We’re just more confident, the world seems a little brighter, and we just feel better. Alas, during some periods, it can feel like these moments are rare. We sometimes look great; at others, we just don’t, and it’s not too clear why. The good news is that, often, the issue is the result of one or two simple mistakes. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the common errors that people make, and how you can move beyond them.
Not Dressed For The Occasion
An outfit can look fantastic on one day, not so fantastic the next. It’s normal to think that your outfit will carry you through no matter, but this isn’t the case — it’s all about context. You’ve got to dress for the occasion. You can pull off that easy-going beach look on a relaxed summer’s day, but if you’re going out on the town, then it’s going to look out of place. Beyond you figure out which outfit you’re going to wear, think about the tone you should strike — it’ll help guide you in the right direction.
Not Caring For Their Clothes
You may be a master of putting together outfits, but are you a master of looking after your clothes? One common mistake people make is that they continue to wear clothes that are past their best. An item of clothing with faded colors or other imperfections will only bring the quality of the outfit down. While there’ll eventually come a time when you’ll have to retire your favorite items, there are things you can do to preserve the quality of your pieces—reading up on cashmere moths and how to correctly wash your clothes will both help. It’s much easier to look your best if your clothing is as its best!
If there’s one piece of advice that people should take on board, it’s to use more accessories. They can be used to great effect to really take your outfit to the next level. Plus, they’re one of the only ‘risk-free’ parts of your outfit. You’re able to be a little more playful and use colors that wouldn’t work on a larger scale. On the other hand, they can also be classy — there’s something of a statement piece of jewelry that really stands out.
Expecting Clothes To Do All The Work
Your clothes and accessories can do a lot, but they can’t do everything, however. Don’t let your awesome outfit down by ignoring your hair and makeup. It’s not about having salon-worthy hair or professional makeup all the time. It’s just about taking the time to be well-groomed, so that your look compliments your outfit. There are plenty of different hair and makeup styles, so once you’ve decided what to wear, find a style that’s going to work well with that look. You’ll find that having these aspects of your look in sync really helps to set it off!
