1. Dress for the occasion

You’re obviously not going to get marks for wearing jeans and a jacket to a wedding (unless that's the dress code!) and you’ll look out of place wearing a hoodie to a job interview. You need to dress for the occasion and it’s important to understand the gravity of the situation. Pick the occasion you’re dressing for and use it as the foundation for everything. If you need to appear professional, then focus on darker muted colours and if you want to adopt a more casual look, then do so by wearing clothes that are comfortable and fit you. If you’re not dressing for any specific occasion, then it’s best to wear clothes that you personally feel relaxed in so that you can show off your favourite fashion garments, colours and accessories.

2. Shop before the occasion

To help you pick out a better outfit, you may want to shop in advance for the situation. For instance, if you know you’re going for a job interview then you may want to purchase a new dress or shirt. If you’re going to a wedding, then you’ll want to purchase something appropriate for the situation. Of course, you don’t want to do this all the time because it will get you into the habit of buying new clothes all the time and not wearing the old ones, but it is a great way to fill your wardrobe with clothes for any situation. There are plenty of places to purchase last-minute fashion pieces online. You can get lots of accessories, dresses and other pieces of clothing over the internet if you’re in a hurry, but it’s usually best to try out the sizes in a retail store instead. In short, always plan ahead with your outfit and shop ahead of time to prevent last-minute rushes.

3. Practice the appropriate beauty routine

The makeup and styling you use will change depending on the type of image you want to give. To find the best beauty routine for your needs, you’ll need to look online or ask others for inspiration. For instance, if you want to show off more of your skin, then you’ll want to get into the habit of wearing sunscreen and applying moisturizer to help keep your body looking soft and smooth. If you’ve just coloured your hair, then you’ll want to use the appropriate shampoo and conditioner that helps to preserve the colour. Focus on how you can improve your look for the situation and the clothes that you plan to wear. Change your beauty routine if needed, and consider the type of makeup you should wear to compliment your outfit.

4. Stop caring about brands

You should stop caring about brands if you really want to look fabulous no matter where you go. Buying into high-end fashion culture is a trap for those with lots of money to spare. Don’t just think that wearing a high-end brand will make you stand out because there’s a good chance that no one will understand what brand it is. Save your money and purchase something that looks good in your eyes instead. What you pay for in fashion is the prestige of owning something limited. This is because many expensive fashion pieces are actually limited edition and they do not reproduce certain garments. However, that doesn’t mean that you should stop caring about quality clothes in general. Some popular clothing brands are notorious for low-quality garments and should also be avoided. Your money should ideally be spent on clothes that are of good quality, well-constructed and ultimately look good on your body.

5. Learn to accessorize your outfit

Accessories such as rings, headbands and necklaces can add a whole new dimension to your outfit. Accessories are difficult to master because you need to focus on the occasion and there are countless combinations that you can try. However, a general rule of thumb is that accessories need to either stand out or be subtle depending on your outfit. If your outfit is rather plain and doesn’t stand out, then you can add accessories to it to make it a little more interesting. If your outfit is the centrepiece that you want to show off, then you should focus on accessories that are a little more laid-back and stand out less. Another good tip is to mix different metals. Try out some gold and silver, and consider mixing them at different parts of your body. If you have some favourite accessories or pieces of jewellery, then you could even build an entire outfit around them as a base.

6. Consider changing your hairstyle

Your hairstyle is one of the first things that people will see when you walk into a room. If you want to look fantastic for the situation, then try and plan ahead for your hairstyle. For instance, if you want to try long hair by letting it down, then you’ll want to use a different type of conditioner or shampoo the night before to ensure that it stays lush and soft. If you want to try a different haircut altogether, then you may want to visit a hairdresser a week or so before the occasion and speak with them about your options. Changing your hairstyle can be a heavy investment especially if you’re thinking of cutting it, so consider how important the situation is and if it’s worth making a long-term change to your styling options and appearance. If it’s not worth the trouble, then there’s nothing wrong with planning your outfit around your current hairstyle instead.

7. Learn about colours

Colour psychology and theory are important when it comes to picking an outfit that matches instead of clashes. You should try to mix neutral colours together with you want to appear more professional, and bright bold colours should be kept to a minimum if possible. However, these rules can be thrown out the window if you want. They’re not so much rules as they are guidelines. Either way, learning about colours and how they compliment or clash with each other is an important consideration if you want to create a stunning outfit. If you need help with colours, then there’s nothing wrong with taking some inspiration from fashion magazines and online websites like Pinterest. There are also apps available on the internet or on your phone that let you practice arranging outfits.

8. Feel confident with your body and your fashion

Try and feel confident with your body. Whether it’s your weight, your skin or even some blemishes on your face, do what you can to mask these insecurities or simply embrace them. Fashion is powerful and the right outfit can make anyone radiate confidence. As mentioned before, it’s a good idea to ignore brands because they give us a false sense of belonging. In reality, what you pay for whatever you personally feel comfortable in and show off clothes from brands that you like. If all of your friends are into one type of clothing brand, then you don’t need to follow their interests if you don’t want to. As long as you feel comfortable and happy with what you wear, there’s no reason to make changes to your style.

9. Adopt the right attitude

You also need to to go with your outfit. If you’re going to dress up in a tight fancy dress then you need to keep your back straight and show off your figure. If you’re wearing a suit, then you need to be more polite, friendly and approachable. Your attitude can completely contradict the clothes you’re wearing and it will feel strange to others, so focus on trying to build up the right confidence and attitude.

Hopefully, these tips have given you an idea of how you can look and feel absolutely stunning with your fashion. It’s all about confidence and understanding how your clothes and colours work together, but you should also keep in mind the occasion you’re dressing for. Practice makes perfect when it comes to putting together the best outfit for any occasion, and you won’t make much progress if you don’t try to be at least a little advent
