Fashion comes, fashion goes. However, there are five golden rules that should always be taken into consideration. We have compiled these for you, so you always appear confident and look timelessly beautiful.
- Less is More
Glitter-mini, high-heels, crop top, blow dried hair. But what was fashionably top-notch for Carrie in “Sex and the City” is not necessarily for us, because, we (unfortunately) are not Carrie. If too many fashion statements are combined in a single look, it usually looks a bit strange on the average consumers, who normally prefer minimalism, choosing trends that suit them as individuals. This approach combined with the right classics from your wardrobe et voilà, you have the everyday Carrie look.
- Stage Your Character
Whether size 34 or 44 – each woman has her own individual figure, which distinguishes her from others and should therefore be emphasized. Whether neck, thighs, belly or buttocks, every woman has a part of her body that she doesn’t like. Nevertheless, there is no reason to hide it under masses of material, because that usually looks bulkier and conveys insecurity. If you are naturally a slightly wider build, you should steer clear of too many clothes. It is important that you learn to appreciate yourself to always feel comfortable in your personal favourite fashion trends – regardless of the size on the label.
Although shoes are usually not the first thing you look at in another person, they still catch your eye. If you can’t walk on high-heels there are two possibilities: practice, practice, practice – or simply refrain from wearing them. Nobody has to wear high-heels. And there’s nothing more unelegant than someone staggering around on high-heeled shoes with her face distorted in pain. If you’re a sneaker girl, stick to it! Never try to be someone else just to fit in. But you should make sure that your shoes are well maintained, regardless of the model. Nobody makes a good impression in dirty shoes with worn out soles! Regular cleaning and impregnation is therefore a must, and a visit to the shoemakers should also be a part of shoe care.
- The Right Cut and Why Size Doesn’t Matter
The size is on the label of the blouse, is irrelevant. When you buy a new garment, you should rather make sure that it fits properly. If the label irritates or annoys you, then cut it off after the purchase: problem solved! Thoughts like “once I’ve lost the five pounds, it will look completely different” are inhibiting and only lead to frustration. Use your energy to find the right garment with the right cut. Think about what kind of clothes you’ve already been complimented on and look for something similar. If wider pants are more comfortable than tight jeans, make then your hallmark!
- Fabrics, Fabrics, Fabrics
Poorly crafted fake leather, a woolen fabric that pills, or artificial plastic sheen – no matter how cheap these clothes are, keep your fingers off them, because fabric should never look cheap. Even the most beautiful cut is ruined if made with bad material. You should, therefore, always pay attention to the quality of the material when buying a new garment. Good fabrics do not necessarily have to be expensive. Instead of investing in two super-cheap sweaters where the low-quality material is obvious, invest in a medium-priced sweater of good quality. A classic white cotton blouse or a beautifully patterned viscose dress are high-quality basics with which you can ideally apply and try out trends. But be careful with materials like synthetic fibers! When the clothes load your hair electrically or lint, they look like you have found them in the bargain bin.
Tip: look at your boyfriend, father or in the men’s department for high-quality basics like wool sweaters. Menswear is often cheaper than garments sold in the women’s department and are still very casual.
