When I think of effortless style, I picture that cool girl. You know, the one with the perfectly imperfect hair and the confidence to match. She doesn’t care what others think (or at least appears that way).
Here are 5 tips for achieving that effortless style.
Plan Outfits the Night Before
Growing up, I would always plan my outfits the night before. Getting up early is hard enough, so why not do yourself a favor and make getting ready simple. Save that energy for something else.
Have a Dress That Works for Most Occasions
Whenever a special occasion rolls around, I am always scrambling for the perfect dress. My solution – shop the sales. Even if you don’t have an event coming up, it’s much better to have a dress in your repertoire rather than starting from scratch. Be sure to look for ones that work for the office, formal events, and weddings.
Invest in a Good Shoe
Shoes will make or break an outfit. I have the worst time finding a comfortable shoe.
One time when I was working retail, I had the cutest outfit on, but my shoes had seen better days. My manager took one look at me and demanded that I buy a new pair or go home. It was so embarrassing, but from that point on, I knew that shoes were important.
The lesson – invest in a good pair of shoes. Even if you can’t afford a high-end pair, make sure the ones you do buy are comfortable and look nice.
Repeat Your Favorites
This is always a good idea. I love repeating outfits and finding new ways to wear them. When you wear the pieces you love, you will always look more confident.
Look to Pinterest for Style Inspiration
I can’t stress this enough: Pinterest is the answer to all your style needs. From curating your dream closet to studying up on the latest trends, there is no style task too big for Pinterest. Create some secret boards and get started.
