Rather than achieving a specific look or how to wear a certain thing, it’s important to know how to dress in a way that fits you as an individual. We all have different shapes, different strengths, and different features that can make us a lot more confident. As such, it’s always wise to look at the fashion picks that can shine a spotlight on those strengths. Here, we’re going to look at a few different ways to do just that.
One of the most important tips that any woman will hear when it comes to fashion is learning how to dress to their body shape. If you don’t know what it is, then you can constantly fall afoul of mistakes that see you accentuating parts of your body that don’t need to be accentuating, while missing the more flattering parts of your figure. Determine your body shape by measuring your bust, waist, and hip. Find out if you’re an apple, hourglass, pear, rectangle, or an inverted triangle, then look for the style tips that help you make the best of the strengths that come with each body shape. While we may glamorize the hourglass, there are advantages of every shape, you just need to learn how to use them.
It’s not just your body shape that you should get to know. You should become a lot more familiar with your palette, as well. Women are beautiful, no matter what shade their skin, hair, or eyes. But when you know your palette, you can also choose clothes and makeup that blend and enhance your natural color, as well. There are plenty of online guides that can help you find your palette (often determined by a mix of seasons and lighting, whether you’re a cool summer or a soft winter). You don’t have to agree on someone else’s definitions of which are the “best colors” for you if you can find your own. But it’s useful to start with knowing your palette, whatever your eventual choices are.
Do you have eyes that can command a whole room or cause people to lose their train of thought? In part, using their palette as mentioned above can ensure you get the best use of them. But being able to call attention to them is always a useful tool as well. If you wear glasses, don’t be afraid to be bold and stylish with choices like John Lennon glasses. A lot of people make the mistake of choosing innocuous, even bland glasses, but the truth is that they ca nbe great for bringing attention to them. Learn your palette and choose eye makeup that best fits the color of your eyes as well to bring out their luster even more.
Got a lovely smile that wins friends and influences people? Don’t be afraid of practicing it in the mirror. It might feel a little silly, at first, but you will get more confident about your ability to summon it at will, as well. If you’re not as confident in your smile as you would like, then whitening products might be just what you need to add a little extra dazzle and to unlock a strength you previously didn’t know about. Your fashion can draw the eye to the smile, as well. For instance, the right picks of jewelry, such as necklaces, chokers, or hanging earrings can all bring the eye down to smile level, setting them up so you can knock them down.
If you’re petite, then you know that your size can definitely be a detriment when it comes to shopping. However, it can also very much be a strength to be used in your outfits, just like being tall can be an advantage, too. There are plenty of styling tips for women of a certain height that can help you use your proportions to your advantage. Of course, playing to your size also means playing to your shape. A fuller petite body can be enhanced by empire waists that nip beneath the bustline, for instance, while a more slender short lady who can help get a better sense of proportion by showing her waist with tailored pieces.
Learning how to focus on your strengths will give you a major boost in confidence, getting rid of feelings of self-consciousness in the way that you dress. Not that there’s anything wrong with pushing the boat out, metaphorically speaking. It’s just always a good idea to be able to fall back on your best bits.
