1. Owning an LBD (or Five)
You’ve probably been hearing this since your high school days. A little black dress is a MUST. Not only is black a color that looks great on everyone, but it’s also versatile and completely timeless. Little black dress styles can be long, short, sexy, demure, sleeved, sleeveless - it doesn’t matter, as long as you feel great in it! Consider getting yourself a nice little LBD so that you won’t have to say “I have nothing to wear” to your next event.
As a fellow broke college student, I try to refrain from spending too much on clothes. However, I do let myself spend a little more on certain things that can be mixed and matched and will last a long time, like jackets, jeans, and bras. These pieces are essentials to many women’s wardrobes, so it’s alright to spend a little more to get good quality, in my opinion. Remember, good quality = longer-lasting.
Panty lines can ruin a cute outfit, so investing in seamless underwear is a must. I mean, just imagine putting on a great new dress, and turning around to see those ugly, thick lines on your bum. Consider keeping seamless bras/bralettes in your wardrobe too; seamless bras are great for those tissue-thin tees and tank tops. And of course, the aforementioned LBD.
Color is a great way to add a fun touch to an otherwise plain outfit. Depending on your personality, feel free to add lots of color by mixing bright pieces, or just a little by incorporating a bold bag or pair of shoes.
Nude shoes are magical, because they go with any outfit, look great on any woman, and come in many different shades. As if that wasn’t enough, they also give the illusion of longer legs (which is great for us petite girls!).
While mixing prints may seem difficult, and maybe even a little crazy, it’s completely do-able. The key to mixing prints is to start small and keep your patterns in the same color scheme. Once you master mixing subtle prints, try bolder combinations to create cool new looks!
Probably the first thing that I notice about fashionable guys and girls is that they are always exuding confidence. If you love what you’re wearing, chances are that you’ll appear confident in yourself. If you’re wearing clothes that are trendy and cool, but just make you feel blah, maybe they’re not for you. Being a fashionista is all about having your own style and owning it, so wear things that you love, regardless of whether they’re “in” or not.
