This ones for you because SEO hates this title lol!
I’m tired of people saying they can’t pull trends they love off! It is 2020 and that is not the energy we are bring into the new year okurrr!! I’m going to give you some guidelines and tips that I follow when I decide what to wear, and also give you specific pieces that are good go too’s!
GUYS I LOVE CLOTHES SO MUCH! lolll its an issue! Also I feel like its really easy to buy something cute, but not so easy to pull of the “put together” look that finishes off your outfit! When I put together an outfit I follow either one of two guidelines.
Guide Line one: Maybe I have a piece that Im OBSESSED with like a new pair of shoes, some statement earrings, a top, or even a pair pants. I will pick one item I’m super obsessed with and BOOM make the whole outfit centered around that! Then in my head I will think of ways to style this ONE ITEM! Tackling it with this in mind makes for a cute outfit!
EXAMPLE BELOW! I wanted to highlight the dress so I paired it with more casual muted shoes and a hat that matched the shoes to make it a little more casual! Also I wanted to highlight the pants so I paired them with a muted simple top, but finished it off with a fun head band!
Guide Line two: TONES I stick to my TONES! Cool, warm, and sometimes in the summer even jewel tones. I pick one tone and go in that direction! I usually do this if there isn’t an item I’m trying to highlight or base an outfit off of! See examples below!
Tones! Wether it but warm nudes, Jewel blues, or darker tones they all complement each other and make for a cute outfit! Basically if you were to pull each color of your outfit into a little square, would they complement and look good next to each other? Or would they clash!? Thats what you should ask yourself if you’re ever unsure!
Here are some pieces you NEED in your closet, these are SUPER important when finishing off a look. An outfit go’s from cute to SO CUTE WHERE DID YOU GET THAT! All you have to do is finish it off by doing one or more of these things!
Guys its actually super important it finishes off a look. I used to be someone who didn’t not accessorize and ever since I started, it made a world of a difference!! There are certain pieces you need to have in your arsenal. You should have a go to dainty, goes with everything, SIMPLE necklace to start (in gold and silver), go to hoops (gold and silver), go to simple studs, and some basic rings that you can stack! These make your outfit look finished off, like you effortlessly thought through your outfit!
Hats turn BLAH outfits into WOW outfits! Its that simple!! They can make a Tee shirt and jeans look like you walked out of an Instagram AD lol!! I’ve told you HOW OBSESSED I am with lack of color hats!! I saw this one in a store the other day and I literally carried it around with me and ALMOST bought it… I’m still dreaming of you but need one more week of saving! hahah But seriously hats complete outfits. They make everything come together, or BAM put one on and you are magically put together!! YOU need a good go to hat (I have a few) that you can throw on to take your simple outfit to the next level.
- Head bands/Hair pieces
Talk about something that instantly elevates your outfit. Much like hats, BOOM you are automatically more put together when you throw an head band on, or tie a scarf in your hair! Its like magic! This takes minimal effort, it really is the little things!
- Bright/Big Statement earrings
EARRINGS are also an instant tie together!! This specifically works when you have a color you want to highlight in an outfit! Sometimes just adding an earring adds the WOW factor! Big fun earrings brings a confident appearance, and is sometimes the finishing touch in bringing your outfit to life!
A big part to all of this is CONFIDENCE!!! I’m a huge advocate of wearing whatever YOU like and wearing it proudly. When you take the time to put outfits together with things that you truely love there is no reason on gods green earth you shouldn’t hold your head high and rock whatever the hell you feel is YOU! There is only one YOU in the entire world and be creative follow these rules or don’t. Wear whatever speaks to you!
I love you!!
