If you are overweight, you have to be very careful about wearing clothes that have stripes. Make sure you wear vertical stripes if you are going to wear any at all. Wearing stripes that run horizontally will only do the trick of making you look larger than you really are.
When choosing clothes, think about what season you are. If you look good in reds and oranges, you are a “summer” and probably will look good in any warm color (like yellow). If you look good in blues, you are likely a “winter” and look good in whites and greys as well.
It has become fashionable for men to wear clothes that are very baggy, but this should be avoided. This makes you look sloppy and can make you look larger than you really are. While you do not have to wear anything that is too restricted, one size larger than your actual size should be the limit.
Don’t be afraid to go up a size if it means achieving the perfect fit. It can be quite distressing when you try on your usual size only to find it doesn’t fit. Don’t fret! Sizes vary from designer to designer and brand to brand, so it is perfectly okay to go up a size from your usual size.
Black is a good basic color to wear with other colors, but do not concentrate on wearing black all the time. While wearing black on the bottom half of your body can be somewhat slimming, make sure you jazz your style up by adding something colorful on your upper body.
Build your wardrobe around basic staples that you can mix and match easily. Some key pieces include a little black dress, a fitted jacket and matching skirt, a tailored pair of slacks in a neutral color and a pair of dark, fitted trouser jeans. These items can take your almost anywhere paired with the right top and/or accessories.
If you are in a battle with frizz, you should avoid rubbing your hair dry when you exit the shower. It will damage and frizz out your hair. Try wrapping it in the towel and pushing it to absorb the moisture instead. When you think it is dry enough, take off the towel and comb your hair.
Crocheted clothing is back in style once again. The most popular pieces this season happen to be crocheted vests. These comfy vests come in a multitude of colors, patterns, and thicknesses to add a cozy and homemade look to any outfit. Try wearing them over your plain shirts or dresses.
Clear out your closet. Sometimes you may think that you will have more outfits to choose from if you have more clothes. A closet that is cluttered and cramped will surely hinder your choices for fashion. Dig into your wardrobe and rid it of all things that neither fit nor have been worn lately. A wardrobe comprised of a few classic, versatile pieces will be more wearable than a closet full of outdated styles.
You have to follow your intuitions when it comes to fashion. You need to use your knowledge to help others understand your fashion sense. After doing so, people will be more aware of your great fashion sense.
