For some women dressing with style comes effortlessly; she can shop the endless racks at H&M, easily find items that look good on her, knows her colour palette, and has a streamlined closet filled with wardrobe essentials.
But if you’re like the rest of us, you probably often find yourself staring into a closet full of clothes wondering what to wear and how to create an outfit that goes beyond jeans and a t-shirt.
Don’t fret! Creating an outfit that is stylish is totally possible and easy. All you have to do is follow a few tips and ask yourself some important questions in order to first determine your personal style just like a stylist would do.
As a personal stylist, my job starts with getting to know my client and there are a set of steps and questions I always follow (which subscribers can answer in our Style Profile) to help them create the perfect outfit everyday.
Here are 5 tips to help you create the perfect outfit just like a stylist everyday!
1. Think about what you like
2. What’s missing in your closet?
3. Consider future engagements and what events you need to dress for
Do you have cocktails to attend every Thursday or work in an office with a strict dress code? You need your outfit to work for your everyday life, which is why I always ask clients in what type of settings they plan to wear their tights and need to get dressed for.
4. Think about what you want your wardrobe to say about you
Your clothes are a vehicle to communicate who you are to the world, so get to know yourself and figure out what that message is. After all, they key to pulling off any outfit is to wear it with confidence.
5. Don’t be afraid to look for inspiration
