Whether it be in England, in France or in Spain, stylish women around the world know how to be stylish because they know when to follow the rules.
When in doubt, wear black
Black is never out of style. In fact, many people consider it to be the most stylish colour around. In fact, if you walk around the streets of New York, you’ll find that black is the default option for many women. A black leather jacket will never go out of style.
You need to know when to experiment with trends
Mixing up your style is important but so is knowing when to experiment with trends. What we mean is that a wedding, for example, might not be the best time to experiment with the recent trend of distressed denim or sheer materials.
When it comes to hair and makeup, less is more
The risk of overdoing it with your hair and makeup isn’t always worth it, especially on particularly busy days. The ‘no makeup’ makeup trend may not be as easy to pull off as it seems, but it’s one that’s here to stay for some time.
You have to find the right fit
There’s a reason why a pair of well-fitting jeans is considered a wardrobe staple so investing in a pair of good quality ones will come in handy on those days when you have impromptu plans. Jeans are one thing, but finding the right fit for everything you have is necessary if you want to accentuate your shape. Find a good, affordable tailor and make them your best friend.
It doesn’t matter how expensive your clothes are
It’s easy to combine an expensive pair of shoes with a dress that you’ve picked up from a high street retailer, but it doesn’t matter how much you’ve paid for your clothes, as long as you know how to expertly combine them. Vintage clothes can be a great way to create a look that’s completely original.
A handbag can be your greatest investment
Speak to any fashionista, and they’ll be quick to tell you that a handbag is one of the best accessories you can invest in. This doesn’t mean that you have to spend several thousand pounds on the latest Balmain tote; however, it’s still an investment as long as it expresses who you are.
Find your signature style
Regardless of your shape or size, showing your unique personality is one of the biggest ways to be considered stylish. Knowing your style is what makes you you so finding that one thing that you can add to any outfit will certainly go a long way.
