Fashion Tips and Tricks from Pro Stylists

Many of us likely have spent a lot of time this year in sweatpants. Our outside clothes became dusty in our closets, and our fashion sense suffered along with our social skills. Even those who don’t mind dressing up can sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the options available. Not to mention how to add new pieces to your wardrobe. Dressing up doesn’t need to be difficult. We reached out to Kristen Saladino (HT0_ Good Housekeeping ) and a few other stylists for their top fashion tips to help us break out of our wardrobe ruts.

Go monochrome

You don’t have to wear the same color from head to toe. This is a chic look for spring, and it might inspire you to experiment with your favorite colors. Saladino loves white, pink and gray. The “Canadian Tuxedo” is a great option if you have a lot of denim. Combining a denim jacket and a jean skirt can transform your basics into a fashionable look.

These three pieces are key. The Ambitionista’s Heidi Nazarudin says you only need three items if you don’t like complicated fashion trends or want to make your look more polished. An elegant pair of sunglasses that flatter the face, a beautiful everyday leather handbag, and smart shoes that you can walk in will instantly elevate any outfit.

Bright lipsticks and accessories are a good idea.

It’s easy to see why neutrals and black are so versatile. Nazarudin suggests that you wear them as accessories if you are interested in trying out bright patterns and loud colors before purchasing a garment. She suggests that instead of buying a brightly colored blouse, she recommends purchasing a bracelet, cuff, or lipstick.

You can try a vintage cardigan.

For a modern look that’s not too expensive, give those old graphic tees a new lease of life. Pair it with loafers and cropped denim.

Get your sneakers out of the gym.

Running shoes don’t have to be for the treadmill. Saladino recommends pairing striking kicks with a dress, or skirt, for a fashionable ‘fit that is also comfortable enough to run around town. A look that can be worn all day is our favorite.

Put on your belt

Belts are an essential piece of your outfit. Crayola says that a textured, embossed, or colorful belt can be the fastest way to pull together basic pieces or elevate casual outfits.

Online shopping can be made easier by using a tape measure.

Knowing your measurements is important, especially when shopping online. This will help you avoid any disappointments with your sizing. Nazarudin says, “I love online shopping.” “But sizes can vary between brands and cuts. So remember your shoulder, bust and hip measurements.

Track pants and trousers are a good option.

After spending a year in yoga pants, sweats and other soft clothing, it might not be easy to imagine wearing structured pants. Saladino suggests a trouser.

Remember the Rule of Two

Yraola’s rule is the best way to avoid stress when pairing patterns. She says that there is a maximum number of brights and prints you can mismatch (e.g., stripes with florals or lavenders with greys). “Don’t add another.”

Add some pearls

Saladino suggests adding pearl jewelry or accessories such as pearl hair clips to any outfit, from casual to formal wear. For a vintage-inspired look or give casual clothes an unexpected elegance, layer a string of jewelry with other jewelry.
