Listen, I get it. You are being pulled in a million different directions and what you wear isn't a priority. I fall into the same rut.
But I'm here to make having great style easy. And I have five little tips that I wanted to pass along that make getting dressed in a hurry easy.
I even made you a little graphic to remember them.
Clearly, there are exceptions to these rules. And rules are meant to be broken. But these are general, easy tips. Check them out-
1) Check the liner of your clothes for color matching.
Do you struggle to know what colors to pair with certain pants or maybe a blazer? Here is an easy tip, check the liner. Lots of times the liner of your blazer or shorts will have different colored fabric on the inside. It's a no-brainer way to know what other color will go with the item.
Here is an example-
Now this one is pretty loud. And I don't normally wear polka dots. But I know without spending any time at all that a teal or chartreuse top is going to look great with these shorts. Do I have to wear those colors? Of course not, but it gives me a quick idea without spending any time searching.
2) Not sure what shoes or pants to wear with your top or outfit? Look at your buttons. If you're wearing black buttons on a top, black shoes are going to match. Here is another example-
This top has a bronze-colored button. So I could find shoes that match. See how easy that was!
3) When in doubt, match your hair color to your shoes. I've said this before and it sounds weird. But if you have dark hair, light-colored shoes will really make a statement. The same goes for light-colored hair and dark shoes. So if you are unsure what shoes to wear, and you just want your shoes to disappear, match them to your hair color.
Here's an example-
4) In general, don't buy pants with high pockets. Now, there are exceptions to this. If you're a high schooler and your butt is amazing, wear whatever pockets you wish. But if you've got a little junk in the trunk as I do, low pockets are your friends. So be very careful with those mom jeans like the example below.
5) A general rule of style when you get dressed is to create opposites with length. What do I mean by that? For example, if you're wearing a long skirt, you should wear a short top. Or, like the example below, wear shorts with a long sleeve top. I love to play with the long/short combinations of the shorts/kimono outfit. Or another example would be tunic and leggings together.
I hope these are helpful to you. They aren't meant to be hard and fast rules to live by, just helpful tips when you are in a hurry and can't quite get that outfit together.
Don't forget them when you're in a rush. You can still have great style!
