We girls love shopping. Don’t we? I guess most of the girls shop from high-end stores as well as from flea markets. Delhiites, can you resist shopping from Sarojini Nagar or Janpath? But have you ever wondered how clothes from even high-end brands don’t justify the price you have paid? And how some tops look classy while hanging on a small street shop? They say dressing up is an art, but you know what? Making your clothes look presentable is a more difficult art. We have seen how our very own fashion diva, Rati, looks so chic and classy in almost everything she wears. She rocks even a simple plain tee. So, today I would like to give you some tips that’ll help you look classy and sophisticated, in almost everything.
1. Wear Comfortable Clothes
I don’t think I am saying anything new here. We all know this golden rule of dressing. Try to buy clothes in which you are comfortable. So, I always prefer to try clothes before I buy them, no matter how tired I am. It’s not bad to expand your fashion horizon. You can keep trying and experimenting with new stuff, but always try them on before buying to see if you will be comfortable in them or not. Once you are comfortable, you will be able to rock them with ease.
2. Invest in Right Accessories
Styling an outfit and making it look presentable is a time taking process. So what makes your clothing attractive are your accessories, like jewellery, watches, bags etc. So rather than investing in too many cheap-looking accessories, try to invest in some classy pieces. I suggest investing in statement pieces as they can glam up your entire persona, making your clothes also look super stylish.
3. Don’t Ignore Your Footwear
Matching your clothes with your footwear is a must. You might think that nobody will notice your footwear, but it can actually make or mar your entire look. So try to buy different types of footwear to go with different kind of outfits and occasion. Some of the must-haves are stilettos, bellies, sneakers, mojris – footwear that are versatile and are comfortable.
4. Say Yes to Dry Cleaning
We all often concentrate only on buying stuff, just for the sake of shopping. But seldom do we bother about maintaining our belongings. So, taking care of the clothes which you buy is also very important. Some people tend to believe that washing clothes with your hands is the best. But let me tell you something – try to dry clean your clothes, at least the clothes with embellishment and embroideries.
5. Invest in a Steamer
These days, most of our wardrobe pieces are synthetic, which can’t be ironed. So, buy a good steamer. This will take away wrinkles from your clothes in a jiffy and give your clothes a rich and refined look. Since it will take lesser efforts than ironing, you can concentrate on other things too while getting ready.
6. Ensure Smooth Silhouettes
Sometimes your bra or panty lines can make your clothes look really cheap. So, invest in good underwear. Nowadays you have plenty of options available in the market. Even with different types of tops and one pieces, you can wear different kind of bras like strapless, slip-ons, shape wear etc. And the same goes with the lowers too.
7. Store Correctly
Last but not the least, your wardrobe should also be perfect. Now, even if you follow all the above steps, but still you don’t store or place your clothes properly, everything will go in vain. Thus, your wardrobe should be spacious enough so that you can accommodate all your clothes. Also, your clothes should be able to breathe. This will prevent them from losing their shape, and will be more durable for longer.
So, these were some of the tips from my side. Do let me know if I did justice to the topic or not. Also, it is my first article on IMBB, so I am a bit sceptical. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 🙂
