Making your wardrobe into something you’re proud of can sometimes feel difficult. Trying to mix or match, pair pieces and find accessories can take some time and a little know how. The following article contains some great advice you can use when it comes to fashion.
If you are overweight, you have to be very careful about wearing clothes that have stripes. Make sure you wear vertical stripes if you are going to wear any at all. Wearing stripes that run horizontally will only do the trick of making you look larger than you really are.
When choosing clothes, think about what season you are. If you look good in reds and oranges, you are a “summer” and probably will look good in any warm color (like yellow). If you look good in blues, you are likely a “winter” and look good in whites and greys as well.
Read fashion magazines at least once a month. If you want to stay up to date on what is hot and what is not you need to do your research. Fashion magazines will keep you informed through each season and as trends develop. If you feel that you ate still missing out there are television shows dedicated to fashion as well.
Do not use sponges to apply your liquid and cream based foundations and blushes. You will lose product in the sponge every time you do. Additionally, the sponge becomes a breeding ground for germs. Instead, use clean fingertips for application, switching fingers or cleaning them between different products or colors.
The color of your skin should determine what color clothing you should wear. If you are very pale, avoid colors that will make you appear paler, like beiges, yellows and whites. On the other hand, if you have darker skin, lighter colors, like light blues, pinks and yellows will compliment your skin.
Know your body’s type. Smaller people can wear items which are made from softer textiles and are tighter fitting. Buxom women should wear noteworthy pants or skirts that draw others’ eyes away from the bust. If you have a pear shape, wear darker bottoms with light colored shirts.
When shopping for vintage clothing, don’t make assumptions based on the size on the tag. A size 8 in the 1950s fits differently than a modern size 8, so save yourself some disappointments by always trying items on before buying them. Once you get a feel for how sizes have changed through the decades, you will have a better idea of what to look for.
Foundation garments are the basis of all good fashion. A bra that is fitted correctly gives your figure good definition and an attractive silhouette. Your undergarments should properly support you and provide you with a smooth and tight look. There is a lot of slimming undergarment options in the market that can slim a few inches off your waist or behind.
As mentioned in the introduction, it can be hard to make the most of the clothes in your closet. Although you can make many combinations, it may not be so easy to create combinations that are new and fresh. Get more for your fashion dollar by following the great advice in this article every time you buy something new.
