Let’s be honest! Most (If not all) of us cannot own a KARDASHIAN closet, yet the dream of strutting down the daily road in high fashion is a regular tease. However our reality has us actively frustrated by our clothes on a daily basis where most of us suffer from an unwearable, non-exciting wardrobe.
Fast fashion leaders like ZARA are further adding to this confusion with the allure of inexpensive clothes where we end up buying clothes without thinking.
Do you fashion these days consist of 52 micro seasons?
Resultantly, putting together an outfit is usually time consuming and disappointing task for many of us.
Thankfully it doesn’t have to be this way. There are habits and tricks that can be inculcated and adapted to give you fashion gratification with daily wearability.
Here are 10 tips for getting started.
1. One high quality item
Keep at least one high quality item in your ensemble. Look up any fashion icon you will see them pairing and rotating their most priced pieces be it a bag, shoe or a jacket (Alexa Chung carrying her Gucci bag with white shirt and basic shorts). The class that a quality item lends is an instant fashion scorer.
While we would love endless options in our closet, our real lives run on a budget. Hence it becomes important to buy flexible fashion aka versatile outfits. Quiz each outfit on its wear-ability before buying. Determine if the outfit suits different occasions like work, casual hand-outs, dinners et cetera. Point to note is that versatility does NOT equals basics. A metallic shirt worn over a pair of office pants (or skirt) is formal fashion.
3. Eye out for non-basics basics
