Style Hacks! How To Make Sure You're Always Looking Good Part 1

10 February 2018

Looking good is something that is important to all of us. It’s the way others view us and it impacts on the way we see ourselves too. I like to think that I always look some level of presentable when I leave my house in the morning. When you look good, you feel good and that’s all we really want out of life. Right?

The other day I was chatting with my friend about the key to looking good. We each raised a few points and agreed with a lot of them. It inspired me to write a little blog post about it. So here are my tips and tricks on how to make sure you’re always looking good:

#1 Wardrobe. Having a good wardrobe is key! When you own a wardrobe full of lovely clothes, you’ll find that even when you decide to “chuck” something on, you’ll look good every time. And if you only take one thing away from this post remember it’s about having good foundations. Once you have that, everything slots into place. (I have a post coming out soon with some wardrobe essentials so stay tuned for that!)

#2 Confidence. Everything nowadays comes down to confidence and it has a right to. Confidence is the one thing that has the power to change everything. You have to feel confident in the clothes you wear in order to look good. Remember it isn’t the clothes that wear you, YOU wear the clothes. So feel confident in them and own it!

#3 Make Subtle Changes. This is more of a way to upgrade your outfit which in turn keeps you looking good. Switch up your look by making subtle changes, it can instantly change an outfit and look a million times better. Add a thin belt to a dress or tuck in the front of your shirt/ jumper and it’ll make the biggest difference, trust me. The shirt trick is a great way for jumpers to look less frumpy and it flatters every body shape, too. I’m always doing this!

#4 Contrast. I love a little contrast in everyday life; it brings so much to the situation and this case, the outfit. When I get ready, I usually have one item that’s fitted and another which is looser. This helps to round the outfit and saves you from looking too much of one thing, arriving at a nice balance. Skinny jeans and a loose shirt is a good combo, especially if you tuck in the front of the shirt. You can use contrast with your shoes, going for a structured shoe with a loose outfit etc. And even with your bag, choosing an unlined tote to go with a structured outfit.

So those are just a few of my tips and tricks to always looking good. I’ll post a part 2 in the coming weeks. Feel free to leave your own tips and tricks in the comments below.
