What if we had a simple process that we could use to pick out a perfect outfit? It would be a lifesaver! Almost everyone has experienced the hassle of trying to find a great outfit every morning. The worst part is, we’re usually never satisfied with the ending result. Here is a formula that will help you put together a fashionable outfit!
Basic Piece + Interesting Piece + Necessary Items + Accessories = Fashionable outfit!
The Basic Piece
The first thing you need to begin the process of throwing an outfit together is a basic piece. This includes a white/black shirt, or plain denim. Think of the basic piece as a plain cake, without it the decorations and frosting would fall off!
Example piece: White T-Shirt
The Interesting Piece
This piece allows you to make the outfit relevant to your style! This can include anything with texture, pattern, or any design that stands out.
Example piece: Plaid Skirt
This is an important step because while you know you need shoes or a purse to walk out in public, you need to pick out ones that go well with the rest of your outfit! For the shoes it depends on whether you’re planning on wearing heels, boots, sandals, or sneakers. The best way to play it safe is to pick an item that doesn’t have a bold design that could possibly clash with your interesting piece.
Example Items: Leather hand bag and black lace up heels
Last but not least, accessories! These can include glasses, jewelry, watches, belts, scarves, sweaters, hats, etc. One or two accessories can make the difference between a good and a great outfit!
Here are some tips when using jewelry:
- Try not to wear too much jewelry in the same area. For example, don’t wear bracelets and rings on the same arm.
- If jewelry is a metal try not to wear more than one type of metal unless it’s incorporated in the same piece of jewelry.
- Match your jewelry with your outfit.
- Most importantly make sure that you’re confident and have fun with it!
