Style on a Budget: Five Questions to Ask Before Buying New Clothes

 
“My clothes have a story. They have a character and a purpose. That is why they become classics because they keep on telling a story. They are still telling it.”-Vivienne Westwood

Fashion has always been widely believed to be no about clothes, but more on creating a specific look that works best for you and your style.

While this might be true, your sartorial ensembles have been one of the most genuine mediums for channeling your inner style in such a way that there are hints of who you are in them. In this regard, clothes are not just merely assortments of variously cut cloth to cover ourselves in but are avenues for expressing ourselves, our tastes and preferences. After all, according to William Shakespeare, the soul of a man resides in his clothes—so, in one way or another, we can infer just how much of a vital aspect one’s clothes are to fashion and style. Unfortunately, while clothes are echoes of your style and fashion preference, this sentiment does not justify your arbitrary and excessive hoarding of them. Sure, we understand that you have a penchant for new couture and a flair for putting clothes together, but if you are constantly acquiring new clothes, you would soon end up in a paradoxical scenario wherein you have fewer things to wear.

It might seem a little absurd to you—after all, acquiring more clothes would mean a more comprehensive set of sartorial options at your disposal, right? Well, not necessarily. In fact, it has been shown that purchasing more clothes would be counterintuitive to your style. Why? More often than not, when we are overwhelmed with choices, we tend to stick to the safe basics that we wear on a daily basis and consequently, our old clothes would be soon be forgotten in the backs of our wardrobes. Furthermore, the more time our clothes spend languishing inside our closets, the less likely they will ever get worn again—especially when changes would occur to our body such as gaining or losing weight.

Should you ever feel the impulse to throw another article of clothing into your shopper’s basket, you might want to inject a little insight into your buying habits and rethink the way you are accumulating clothes. If your wardrobes are bursting at the seams from having way too many pieces of clothing or whether you constantly find yourself buying the latest fashion trend from streetwear wholesale distributors, you might have a hoarding problem. More importantly, if you find yourself constantly frustrated at the lack of clothing choices despite having a full wardrobe, you might want to ask yourself these questions before you buy any new clothes whether they be designer or not:

 

 

1.) Do I already own something like this?

Before you take anything off the rack, it is best if you take a hard look at your closet first. Survey its contents and take a gander at the articles of clothing you already own. By the time you go shopping, check what you are adding to your shopping cart. If it is similar to anything that you already own, you might want to move on and put it back on the rack. However, if you want to argue that it looks like an impressive number, ask yourself if it is really worth the purchase despite having innumerable pieces just similar to it? Do you find yourself gravitating towards the same kind of clothing and splurging on them often? If so, you might want to skip buying this until you have already gotten rid of your old but similar clothes.

2.) Are you addicted to fast fashion? Or do I have a proclivity for shopping?

Sometimes, it is not that we have a problem with hoarding clothes, but just hoarding things in general. Although your appetite for shopping is not necessarily a bad thing, your insatiable lust for accumulating new things is— mainly if this is the sole reason why you have so many pieces of clothing. If you are buying a particularly expensive fashion item, it is best if you took the time to ask yourself whether the designer piece is really worth the investment or whether you could skip out on it. Such as when you buy an exorbitantly priced customized bag, are you entirely sure you can see yourself not purchasing any other bags of the same fashion family in the next couple of years regardless of how cheap or trendy they are? If you buy an investment piece such as a car or a house, you would not necessarily invest in a number of cheaper cars and houses in the next few years unless you are buying them for investment purposes. Apply the same approach when it comes to fashion.

3.) Does this go with my current wardrobe?

Sometimes we buy things without thinking just because they look cute and trendy on the mannequin. However, you should avoid the same approach at all costs lest you end up a closet filled with clothes that do not seem to work together. In any case, before you buy any new piece of clothing, try to see if you can come up with at least four sartorial ensembles that you could see your potential purchase working with. Remember, what you buy should be in harmony with what you currently have in your closet or else, it should be dismissed and returned to the rack. If your new potential piece is incapable of adapting to the existing clothes in your closet, it might be best if you skipped on buying it.

4.) Will I use it often?

The evening gown might look like an excellent addition to your closet, but apart from formal events and weddings, is there any other circumstance where you can see yourself wearing it? Chances are, if you are not constantly attending lavish and star-studded affairs, this potential piece will only laze away in your closet just to have its elaborate embellishments come off. In this regard, your new piece would not be worth the investment and you would probably be better off renting for a prospective occasion instead of outright buying. If you cannot foresee yourself wearing a particular piece over for several and across all occasions, return it to the rack and save your money instead.

5.) Would I still be using it in the future?

Clothes are largely seasonal. However, style is timeless. If you are forking over an inordinate amount of cash for something that is only hip and trendy for the moment, you might want to step back and reevaluate your purchase. Remember, style is forever but the clothes and fashion alongside it will change every season and at times, every few months or even weeks. It is a guarantee that there will always be a new trend to try for every month that comes, and they would soon disappear before we can fully take advantage of them. If you are not opposed to wearing last season’s proclaimed trends and styles, then, by all means, go for it. Furthermore, if you see a particular style, you can wear for as long as you wish without ever getting bored with it, then add it to your collection. However, if it is something that you like only for the time being, you might want to skip on this potential purchase.

 
There is a myriad of things that compel us to make a new clothing purchase: Storewide sales, a new occasion coming up, a hot new trend or basically anything else. However, if you are always beset with sartorial dilemmas despite having a closet well-equipped with an arsenal of clothes, then you might want to reevaluate how you do your clothes shopping. With all things considered, it is best if you took the time to contemplate your potential purchase before actually proceeding to the checkout counter. Remember, clothes play only one aspect of fashion while your style is everything.

Healthy Wardrobes: Definitive Signs You Have Way Too Many Clothes

“My clothes have a story. They have an identity. They have a character and a purpose. That is why they become classics. Because they keep telling a story. They are still telling it.”-Vivienne Westwood

What is a cardinal sign of a healthy wardrobe?

Well, for one it is definitely not a closet that is seemingly bursting at the seams from way too many clothes. It is a wardrobe excellently curated by its owner and is filled with clothes that do not only suit the wearer’s taste and preference but would also be versatile enough to work on any occasion and season. But, as women, we are conditioned to believe that having way too many clothes is preposterous and that there is no such thing. If you ask me, this sentiment has been engineered by clothing retailers and streetwear wholesale distributors as a clever marketing ploy to drive their product sales up.

Unfortunately, we bought into it, and we have long accepted the statement as fact. It has now been an ingrained conviction of most women who have a penchant for fashion that she can never have enough clothes. However, if you are truly a fashion-forward individual, you know where to draw the line between having enough sartorial variety and impulsively getting what is considered stylish and haute couture by purveyors of fashion. If you are the latter, then you need to address the problem as soon as you possibly can. While at the outset having way too many clothes than what is deemed necessary might be something you can overlook, it does not bode well for your wardrobe.

Furthermore, it makes getting dressed in the mornings even more confusing than it already is. With so many clothing items to choose from, selecting just one from the myriad and mountain of clothing can be a bit of a challenge. Moreover, the sartorial ensembles you would ultimately choose every single day would not always be guaranteed to be a success. As you have way too many options to select from day by day, this could be a hit or miss thing—most especially if your closet is a hodgepodge of clothing styles.

However, how can you be positively sure that you have way too much going on in your wardrobes?
Where do you draw the line between an impulsive clothing hoarder and a judicious sartorial collector? Well, take a gander at your closets, observe the contents inside and see if you can relate to any of the things stated below:

1.) You have clothes in the back of your closet with the tags still attached

An excellent way to identify whether you have an existing closet problem is to take out all of the
contents of your closet and check them. If you find clothes that you have long forgotten and are still in pristine condition with their tags intact, then yes, you do have a problem. You might even be surprised to know that you own this stuff and may have forgotten that you thoughtlessly purchased them a couple of years ago. Check just how many unused clothes you have in your closet. If it accounts for more than forty percent of your total clothing items, you might want to reevaluate your shopping habits.

2.) You have more than one closet that is filled to maximum capacity

Your closets might not exactly be large enough to accommodate a lot of clothes. However, all of them are full enough to warrant a justified purging. Although they may not be grand nor are they immensely big, but if you are stuffing them with a hundred shirts and twenty pairs of pants more, then you might as well consider your single closet as two separate wardrobes. In this regard, you would already have at least over two hundred shirts and sixty pants. From there, assess just how often you would wear each item of clothing inside. If there is a chance that you would not even wear particular clothing at least once in every three months, what is that even doing there? The average woman would only wear at least 30-50 shirts throughout the year—sixty if we are being generous. From this number, we can readily assume that the remaining hundred or so shirts in your closet are forgotten and neglected.

3.) You purchase hangers in lots of 100

Who needs that many clothes hangers? Well, individuals with bursting closets do. If you are the type of individual who routinely buys new clothing each week, then you would soon find that you might need more hangers than necessary. For this reason, you elect to buy them in bulk—a definitive sign that you have way too many clothes stuffed in your wardrobes.

4.) You have a dedicated pile of clothes

For a while now, you have stopped storing your clothes in your closet and have now resigned to putting them in a dedicated pile in some established area of your room. It might be that your wardrobe can no longer hold any more clothes and you have resigned to just putting them on top of each other. If that pile exists in your room and you are not just being lazy, it might be that you have way too many clothes to realistically manage—especially if you cannot even identify what is in the pile.

5.) Your regular wash involves more new clothes than dirty laundry

You can easily pick this sign up if you notice you have more new clothes going into the wash than actual dirty clothes. Moreover, take a look at your waste bins and see just how many price tags you have discarded over the past few months. If you have more price tags than actual trash in your bins, then yes, you have way too many clothes than what you can realistically wear.

6.) You buy because it is on sale

More often than not, you find yourself buying items that you would not necessarily wear on a regular basis. In fact, you do not have something in your closets that would go with them, but you buy them in the belief that you will eventually have something that matches with it. You justify these purchases with the fact that they are on sale despite having no real care or interest for them.

7.) You own duplicates of one clothing

While generally, it is acceptable to have at least two colors of one style you find yourself particularly fond of, it is not a practical shopping habit to rely on for every clothing item you purchase. If you own duplicates (and even triplicates) of your closet’s contents, then, needless to say, you have way too many clothes than you can manage. Besides, just think of how you can realistically wear these clothing items in a month or even in year? Sure, they might be in different colors, but it is hardly likely that you would wear a singular style for the entire week. Of course, you would want to change it up every once in a while which leaves your duplicates unnecessary most of the time.

8.) You have stopped hanging your clothes and have tossed them in a separate bedroom in the house or somewhere else

You have finally admitted defeat and accepted the fact that you have way too many clothes than
necessary. All of your three closets are used up and filled to maximum capacity, and yet, you could not find it in your heart to stop acquiring new clothes. So, instead of buying new closets or hangers, you have simply resigned to the habit of placing your old clothes in another separate bedroom. You pile them on top of each other and have no idea of what is even in the pile. At times, you can no longer see the floor because of all the discarded clothes. If this is you, then without a doubt, you have way too many clothes than necessary.

If any of the statements above apply to you, then you might just have way too many clothes and might need to purge your wardrobes from the clothing items that are unnecessary. In this regard, you should endeavor to improve the quality of your clothes rather than its quantity. Start little and work your way up. By admitting to yourself that the problem exists, you might find it easier to purge your closets from inessential items. Once you do that, you are a step closer to a healthier wardrobe and better clothing ensembles.

Contemporary Fashion: Six Style and Fashion Myths Debunked

 

Fashion anticipates, and elegance is a state of mind…a mirror of the time in which we live, a translation of the future, and should never be static.”-Oleg Cassini

It has been said that style is deeply personal—something that can only be defined by the individual wearing the sartorial ensemble himself or herself.

However, while this remains true, it has also been a given that fashion articles containing style edicts by self-proclaimed pundits possessing the right fashion expertise have been circulating since the earliest inception of the word style. Today, with the World Wide Web as the primary and most convenient source of information, the internet has become the endless pit for fashion articles, style columns and sartorial advice. With the rise of the internet as a prolific source for these fashion articles, the online and digital world has seen an upward surge and an influx of authority figures on fashion and style.

Unfortunately, this does not bode the fashion and style industry well. With the saturation of these so-called authority figures in the fashion world comes with the propagation of false advice and misinformation. Some of the articles they produce would issue a set of rules of which an individual would be expected to follow if he or she so wishes to be considered stylish. However, there is no hard and fast rule when it comes to something as diverse as fashion. Furthermore, there is no set of rules that would work for every individual of every shape and size across the globe. Fashion is something that is innate and should not be subjected to rules. It should be an echo of your creativity and a manifestation of your personal taste and preferences. After all, fashion is deeply personal and incredibly dynamic that subjecting it to various rules would run counter to what it is all about. Moreover, in the world of fashion, rules change every single day and subject to the whims, ideas and inventive brainstorming of stylists and designers. So, can you really expect anyone to be keeping up with its consequent vicissitudes? It does not matter whether your style mainly consists of wholesale urban fashion or luxury designer items if you lived by these fashion rules and subjected your personal style to them; chances are you are holding yourself back from exploring your full style potential. With this in mind, it is best to have an awareness of what these nonsense fashion myths are and debunk them so that you would not find yourself conforming to them.

Some of these rules are obsolete while a significant majority of them are just plain wrong. Unfortunately, with the constant repetition of these rules, they have been accepted as fact which is what this article is seeking to rectify.
Here are some of the erroneous style rules you have may have been misled to believe all these years:

 

1.) Women past thirty years old can no longer wear mini skirts anymore

First of all, fashion is not selective. It is exclusive which is why this rule exempting women of a certain age from wearing miniskirts is not only ludicrous but somewhat offensive as well. However, the reasoning behind the fashion rule might stem from a woman’s transition from her twenties to her thirties. This often means a change in lifestyle and outlook in life. Consequently, it would also mean she might want to refine her wardrobe and purge it of items that are reminiscent of her wild youth and opt for more sophisticated choices. However, there is no absolute need for you to throw away your minis and go for midis. If miniskirts are still your thing, go ahead and rock them. Who cares if you are thirty? You can style them elegantly anyhow. If you have a penchant for miniskirts, go ahead and rock them. Your age should never determine what you wear.

2.) No heels for tall girls

It has always been believed that a pair of heels was invented to help petite girls to leverage their height. With this in mind, it has been readily accepted that tall girls have effectively dispensed with the need for a pair of heels given that they already have the advantage of having a good height. However, much like how miniskirts are not exclusively made for young women, a pair of heels can be worn by just about anyone—even a tall woman. After all, while a pair of heels gives you that added height, it also does wonders to your posture and would make your calves look toned and sexy. There is absolutely no harm in enhancing your height a little bit more.

3.) Short women cannot wear maxi dresses

Much like how it was offensive to state that women beyond thirty can no longer wear miniskirts, indicating maxi dresses are not for short girls would be somewhat impertinent. Maxi dresses can be worn by everyone regardless of what their height is. After all, you cannot expect short girls to attend formals perpetually rocking cocktail dresses. There is no need to follow this rule as it is clearly seen that maxi dresses can look stunning on shorter girls with the right colors. In lieu of printed maxi dresses, go for streamlines ones in a solid color for a more flattering and breezy look.

4.) Black and navy do not go together

As in the world of color combinations, it has been said that dark colors should be paired with lighter hues to create contrast as dark on dark tend to make one bulkier and would clash. However, you would be surprised at the type of effect it might pull off. To illustrate, black and navy are two colors that are hardly paired with each other, but it might just turn out to be one of your favorite color combinations. They are both neutral dark tones that would look good with any color. With this in mind, it should not be a surprise that they would look great together. To make the effect even more dramatic, try mixing different textures in those hues. The overall effect would be modern and dynamic.

5.) You should wear only dark pants if you are bottom heavy

The underlying principle of this fashion rule is that bottom heavyset girls should conceal what society perceives to be as a flaw which is why wearing ONLY dark pants is recommended. Again much like some of the rules stated above, this one is offensive bordering on insulting. Sure, the notion of darker colors having a slimming effect on the body is something that is not new, but hues play one role. Cuts, as well as shapes, play an equally pivotal role in creating a svelte and slimmer illusion. You might be surprised, but a well-fitted pants or skirt—even in start white—can look incredibly sultry and elegant on women who are bottom-heavy. However, be sure that when you do wear these bottoms, you wear seamless inner wear or nude colored ones. You do not want any of your panty lines to be visible, and apparently, white does not camouflage white.

6.) Match everything

Back in the day, women seemed to have believed in the fashion notion that everything they wear should match. This means their bags, shoes and of course, their nail polish should match. While a perfectly synchronized apparel is acceptable, there is no need for you to meticulously ensure that you wear the right shade of blue to match your bag and your nails. This is not a definite need, and in the ear of mixing and matching, this trend might even be considered rigid and boring. Furthermore, mixing and matching your clothes is what makes fashion fun, and it is also effortless. In this regard, you would not have to painstakingly look for the right shade of shoes just to match your bags. You would no longer need to transfer the contents of your handbag from one bag to another as well.

 

Sure, rules are comfortable, and they give everything a semblance of order. But if the history of the world has taught us anything, it is that rules are meant to be broken. In any case, if you truly want to embrace your style, forego the rules. After all, now that you have an awareness of what the most common myths are, you should be able to take full charge of your wardrobe and create outfits that reflect the inner you. Have your own set of rules and let your sartorial ensembles be a reflection of what style is, and not what others say style should be.

Timeless Fashion: Eight Articles of Clothing that Would Last You a Lifetime

 


“Fashion sighs after trends. I want timeless elegance. Fashion has no time. I do. I say: Hello Lady, how can I help you? Fashion has no time to even ask such a question because it is constantly concerned with finding out: What will come next? It is more about helping women to suffer less, to attain more freedom and independence.”-Yohji Yamamoto

It has been a given that clothing forms a pivotal aspect of our expenses.

True, while we might not precisely buy sartorial items every single day, we do wear them habitually—so much so, that if we were not to invest on quantity, we should focus on quality. For individuals who see fashion as nothing more than frivolity, clothes would be nothing more than a negligible aspect that dedicating a portion of their earnings to indulge in what they deem as a triviality would be out of the question. But even less than fashion-forward individuals would need to dress accordingly too—that is if they wish to look presentable and adequate wherever they might be headed. For individuals who think of style as paramount to their daily lives, spending a significant investment on clothes alone is not only recommended but perfunctory. After all, how they look and how they present themselves to the world is already an investment in itself. These individuals are likely comprised of people from the entertainment industry or the blogging sphere wherein they make a living out of leveraging styles, proclaiming what is in and what is out and having their followers follow suit.

In this regard, investing in quality clothing is a must—whether you occasionally pander yourself with trends or consistently wear only the latest and in-season vogues. Unfortunately, in the era of budget-friendly style, streetwear wholesale distributors, and fast fashion, quite a lot of apparel items do not stand the test of time. This is especially true for trendy statement items that would only last for a year or two before becoming obsolete. However, this is not to say that you should never buy trends here and there, but if they cannot withstand a few washes before becoming faded or unraveling at the seams. If quality is what you are aiming for, you should look for clothes that are built for the long haul and are made from suitable materials. These are the sartorial items that are designed for function rather than form and are just as stylish as the trends you are so keen on buying, but with a heftier price tag. If you always have to repair your jackets, jeans or have your clothes disintegrate after many washes, you might want to rethink and reevaluate your selection in clothes. In any case, if you want to do a closet overhaul, here are some of the timeless clothing pieces that are not only high-quality but would keep you stylishly outfitted throughout the years.

 

1.) Steven Alan Shirts

Commonly regarded as a prep staple, these shirts are timeless and stylish. Considering its very basic style, it would be perfect for any and every occasion making it the most versatile piece in your closet. Furthermore, they work with whatever style there is, are easy to wash and fit better with age. Watch out for sales and try to grab at least more than one shirt.

2.) Ralph Lauren

Undoubtedly regarded as one of the classier (and consequently, pricier) brands, Ralph Lauren tees can be seen almost everywhere. And that is pretty much understandable, with low-cost clothing distributors imitating the style, replicas and mockups of this statement piece can be found for a fraction of what it originally costs online. However, if you want quality with an eye for style, go for the authentic ones and do not be afraid to spend a little. As it is the embodiment of straightforward and classic styles, you can never go wrong—regardless of what clothing piece you choose to invest on.

3.) Spanx Hosiery

Women who are required to wear pantyhose or hosiery to work would often find themselves dismayed with the runs they usually get on their stockings from everyday wear. While it is not recommended to invest a lot of money on hosiery, it would be when you are wearing it on a daily basis. Go for Spanx hosiery as not only does the brand give you a myriad of color and texture options, but the pattern possibilities are virtually limitless. Furthermore, the brand uses the same quality on their hosiery as they do their other shapewear which makes for a quality investment.

4.) Levi’s

For your denim needs, go nowhere else but at Levi’s. An established brand since the 1870’s, you know that you can never go wrong with this brand. In fact, many might say that Levi’s is the epitome of denim itself. With its classic style and effortless sophistication, it would be no wonder why denim fans would at least have one in their closets. As true innovators of the denim industry, the brand is continuously coming up with a wide range of styles while staying true to its quality heritage. Whether your style is either super skinny, straight, bootcut to boyfriend, you are sure to have a quality pair with an eye for modern design.

5.) American Apparel

While it is known for its notoriously exorbitant basics and staples, this American brand keeps making shirts that are still trendy and kicking it like it is new. Sure, spending for their staples and basics might cost you a lot more than other fast fashion juggernauts, but at least you would know that the same items would outlast you. In this regard, they are definitely worth the extra splurge. Furthermore, as the brand is known for its relaxed California vibe, you can channel your inner valley girl that would help epitomize your inner cool and sophistication.

6.) Converse

Known as an age-old brand, Converse is definitely a shoe staple in everyone’s closet—regardless of how old you are. Its signature footwear, the Chuck Taylor, is the pinnacle of American shoe wear and almost everyone can identify with it—regardless of whether their style is straightforward classy and chic, or grunge and skater. Converse shoes never go out of style, and even if you are not into their more signature pair, they have a pair of tennis shoes that can be styled and incorporated into a multitude of street-savvy ensembles. These shoes are not only stylish to wear, but comfortable as well—a surefire addition to your wardrobes.

7.) Birkenstock Sandals

Although quite a lot of individuals would stray away from what they regard as Jewish Sandals, Birkenstock Sandals has become a staple in most closets. However, as the style is making a comeback as of late, you might want to snag a pair today. Style aside, the brand has remained popular for its durability. The sandals are known for soles that conform to your feet without ever falling apart—a true testament to its quality that has reverberated with its loyal customers over time.

8.) L.L Bean

Another brand known for being a staple of preps, L.L. Bean has proven to the masses that it is a brand that caters to more than just collar-popping preps everywhere. To this day, the brand has a consistent track record of making sartorial items that last. The brand constantly comes up with long-lasting, classic and high-functioning pieces that befit a lifetime of adventure— an excellent ensemble for anyone who has an affinity with the great outdoors. The brand is known to stock on a myriad of apparel types from swimwear, outdoor hear, fitness wear to shoes. Whatever your choice might be, you are guaranteed that these items were made to last.

 
If you are ready to make sound decisions when it comes to quality clothing without it ever becoming obsolete, unfashionable or easily destroyed, ensure that you have a look back at the brands enlisted above. With quality clothing that would outlast even you, you can ensure a lifetime of clothing durability without having to compromise style.

Fashion 2018: The Biggest and Most Prominent Fall Street Styles and Trends of Today!


“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.”-Miuccia Prada

It has been said that fashion is an individual’s universal and ubiquitous voice.

As style is very personal, it has been widely considered that your assemblage of clothes is a medium for showcasing who you are without even having to speak. Indeed, while these sartorial items may be easy to overlook and may seem insignificant to many, they speak a definitive language that can be understood by many. However, while fashion and style are both taken to be universal languages—metaphorically, of course—this does not mean that both are rigid aspects in our lives subject to permanence. As it is, both fashion and style are cyclical and would evolve and would then cater to consumers. Moreover, it is cyclical in such a way that what was then considered out-of-style would now be the hottest and most stylish trend and vice versa. It all depends on what style pundits and fashion providers would dictate is fashionable.

In this regard, fashion is also seasonal—so much so, that what is considered stylish and in-style varies per season. Although there is no rigid rule as to how one should dress, fashion-forward and stylish individuals have been known to pattern their wardrobes after seasonal changes. Today, as fall draws to a close, there is an imperative need to review and assess the biggest street trends of fall 2018. At this point, streetwear wholesale distributors, as well as wholesale urban clothing distributors, should be reevaluating which of the clothes they purveyed and peddled to the public worked and which ones did not. With this in consideration, they would then be able to refine what they market and put on display so as to cater to the public’s ever-changing tastes. Today’s fall streetwear fashion gave consumers quite a diverse set of new trends to try—from practical to whimsical; there is something for every sort of fashionista out there.
With a myriad of fashion trends and styles released for fall, it can be quite the feat to keep up with them. Not to worry, however, as this article has condensed all of these trends into one article for your easy reference. In any case, below is a collection of the street style trends you can likely anticipate to hit everywhere from the streets to the runways:

 

1.) Water-repellent clothing and ensembles

While this trend sent many of us shaking our heads or left us in confusion, it has now been regarded as a fall staple. Seeing as rainy weathers dominate during the fall season, it would be advisable to have an outfit that is not only stylish but practical and functional as well. If you have never envisioned yourself draped in clear plastic trench coats complemented with clear totes and boots, well you can start picturing yourself in that. Armed with any of those, the need for an umbrella would be effectively dispensed with. Furthermore, the clear plastic might shield you from the rain but in no way would it obscure your outfit. Everyone would still be able to take a glimpse of your ensembles underneath which makes for street style gold.

2.) Old trends are now fashionable again

As stated above, fashion and style are both cyclical so do not be afraid to recycle some of the old trends and sport them out on the streets. If you are a bit doubtful and confused about the flashy logos you tend to see showcased on most fashion runways, do not fret, as so are most fashion experts. However, just because you and the experts are skeptical does not mean that there is no working around to this trend. Ease into the trend by starting small and do not immediately jump the gun by going for the boldest and most prominent logos. Start with small and straightforward logos like the heritage logos and motifs of Fendi (you can never go wrong with the interlocking F’s) or Burberry’s classic print or even Coach’s stacked C’s. These logos are recognizable without being too in-your-face, so they are rather easy to wear and perfect for easing into the trend.

3.) Show off some leg

To some, leaving your legs bare during the colder seasons might seem unheard of. Furthermore, you might even think that this trend is unheard of. And yet, we have seen a series of photos of leggy women all sporting their bare legs during the winter season. In this regard, this fashion trend can be done—even during the colder months. The trick, however, is to create a balance between showing enough skin and ensuring that you do not get cold. So, go ahead and wear the ultra-miniskirt and frocks—just make sure to pair them with tights to keep you adequately warm.

4.) Bold animal prints

Zebra and leopard prints might be something you are hesitant to wear, but with the style spilling out from the runway to the streets, it seems to be an imminent staple in every woman’s closet. This street style trend has been somewhat of a mainstay for years now, but it seems that apart from celebrities, only runway models wore them. However, it has now been widely accepted to don yourself in head-to-toe animal print—whether they may be spots or stripes (or a combination of both). So, break out of your color blocks and monochromes and think of these animal prints as your new neutrals.

5.) Reimagined pastels

Back in the day, it seemed like winter pastels consisted of pale mint and lavender. In fact, these two hues are the likely colors most fashion individuals would be seen sporting during the colder season. Indeed, a few years back it seemed that matching our outfits to the somber weather was the long-standing trend. However, this year, we have seen a full-range of pastel colors everywhere from the traditional powder blue to something bolder and brighter such as Creamsicle orange and chiffon yellow giving women a lot more legroom when it comes to choosing color complements to their outfits. In lieu of garbing yourself in all-black, why not go for something a bit more feminine and fresh such as donning yourself in a myriad of pastel colors ensemble. Give your outfits an unexpected twist by sporting some summery colors for the fall and colder seasons.

6.) Flower power for every season

It seemed that floral prints, much like how the pastel color, was only reserved for summer and spring seasons. However, this no longer holds true as today, the colder and greyer the weather becomes, people are encouraged to wear brighter and louder prints such as floral and the like. After all, your outfit does not have to match the downcast weather. In fact, you can make the day a bit perkier and chirpier by wearing something a little more festive than subdued and muted colors. Look for super-vivid, graphic and even neon prints to make your ensembles stand and pop out during the darker seasons.

7.) Winter-White Pants

You can do away with the adage of not wearing white pants after Labor Day as the sentiment no longer holds true. In this season, a pair of white trousers would be the pivotal piece to what would be every woman’s iconic and fashionable uniform. It does not matter whether the pair they choose would be skinny or flared or whether the fabric is denim or silk, the departure from the long-held trend would undoubtedly catch eyes when you are wearing them out on the streets.
Indeed, the world of fashion has seen some significant and innovative changes recently, and along with that, women are given a wide array of fashion options at their disposal. With these biggest and most prominent fashion trends, update your wardrobes and closets for the oncoming season and make room for a fresher, more sophisticated and ultra-glam daily look.

Style Edict: Fashion Rules that are Either Obsolete or Irrelevant this 2018


“It is a new era in fashion where there are no rules. It is all about the individual and personal style.”-Alexander McQueen

It has always been a given that when it comes to things that matter, rules should be applied in order to have a semblance of order about you. The same sentiment is employed as regards things that people are passionate about, but is not that an irony in itself?

When you have a burgeoning passion for something such as art or writing, should it not be approached with total and wanton abandon? Would it not be a little more meaningful if it were unrestrained and in effect would it not feel a little more liberating? Aspects and worldly things such as art and fashion should not be inhibited and encumbered by rules and rigid rubrics—but, here we are. In these contemporary times where revolutionary leaps and advancements were made not only to technology, but to fashion as well, fashion forward people should not feel restricted to the rules proclaimed by so-called style pundits and fashion icons. Today, modern fashion has dictated that style should not only be unique and individualistic but unrepressed and free as well.

In this regard, people should endeavor not to pay meticulous care about the past fashion edicts that were issued and should focus more on what they deem to look good on them. Today, contemporary fashion caters to just about everyone and with wholesale clothing offer a wide variety of sartorial options, nobody would be left out. In this regard, creating, finding and developing your personal style would not only be possible, but heavily encouraged. So, if you have ever found yourself bound to the same set of fashion rules or are still likely obsessing over style proclamations that are hardly relevant or are even obsolete today, take a gander at the list below. In this regard, you would not only be able to develop a few fashion rules for your own, but reevaluate and reassess your sartorial options and choices as well.

1.) You need different clothes for different occasions

While no one is likely going to tell you to ditch your pajamas and swimwear in favor of one set and style of clothes, no one would tell you to have a complete nighttime ensemble either. Back in the day, it used to be that people would wear pajama sets that included silk robes and even slippers. Some of them would even go as far as to embellishing the entire ensemble with sparkly statement jewelry, but today that is hardly the trend. In fact, today’s fashion would even see what you would normally consider as bedroom wear as things you would wear to the nightclub or even to the grocery store. Contemporary style has made unconventionality the height of fashion. The time for wardrobes segmented into strict categories such as “dressy and casual” is in the past. Today, anything goes. What is important is that what you are wearing does not only look good, but feel good to you as well.

2.) Leggings and sweatpants are not pants

It was precisely this statement that caused a global debate in the fashion world. It seems that some people just could not wrap their head around the concept of wearing leggings (a ubiquitous fashion staple for women) and sweatpants as a pair of jeans. However, today, with more and more women favoring them not only for their elasticity and ease of convenience in wearing, it seems rather backward to not consider them as pants. Do yourself a favor and ditch the idea that leggings can never pass off as pants, you will live happier that way. Not only are these sartorial staples easy to wash, but they do not take up too much space in your closets as well. With all those attributes on a single sartorial item, is it really any wonder why women would hoard them?

3.) Everyone should save for an investment bag

Articles about style and online fashion blogs have all decreed the importance of a single statement bag to a woman—an investment piece that would likely cost her at least three months’ worth of her salary. In fact, as most of these investment and statement bags are priced at a premium, majority of women folk would not be able to afford even just one straight out. In this regard, these style sites have taken it upon themselves to offer articles detailing their advice on how to save for one. If owning a statement Louis Vuitton has always been your dream, then go ahead and take the plunge. But do know that in today’s fashion times, there is quite a myriad of brands who are producing high-quality bags that can be heirlooms. The best part about these bags is that you would not have to starve yourself in order to afford one—it would not even require you to adjust your standard of living and lifestyle. In essence, owning one of these (or even two) is a lot more practical than going for a bag you literally have to toil over just to afford.

4.) Older women should not follow trends

Whoever said this rule should be publicly flogged. Saying older women should not follow trends is like saying they are not allowed to have their own personal style—which goes against what fashion stands for. Being trendy is not exclusively for the young. Although the conventional wisdom holds that women should dress more like their age and should be a bit more conservative over time, know that this does not apply to contemporary style and modern fashion. Just think of the consequences you would face should you follow this advice. By abstaining from trends by the time you are sixty, you are effectively relegating yourself to matronly wear such as black slacks and twinsets. Not a very good choice, is it not? Yes, it is age appropriate but it is not exactly as fun. It does not matter what age you are, be unapologetic about your love for fashion and wear things you do love and look great in.

5.) Never wear pants that do not fit

Over the past years, women have always stood by the advice that your pants should be perfectly tailored to fit your body. However, the last few years has seen a refreshing twist and change to do that. With the rise of the mom and boyfriend jeans, it seems that the iconic pair of awkward pants has become the new trendy thing to wear. Ripped and frayed hems have joined the bandwagon as well and women cannot help but try on these different styles. Back then, pants should be well-tailored that when the fashion industry first introduced the elephant-leg pant, everyone scoffed at it. Today however, wide-legged cropped jeans and their well-known and loved cousins such as culottes and the like make for a perfectly acceptable silhouette. So, break free from the street safe pants and look for ones that are a little bit oversized and at times so overly long. Sure, they may have enough fabric to actually conceal your shoes and drag on the ground, but they make for an excellent fashion statement. They may not be always right, but you cannot deny that they are not only elegant, but sophisticated as well.

6.) Heels are a must when you want to look fancy

A pair of heels is great and there is no denying that every woman needs at least one as well. However, while they can make your calves look toned in just minutes, they are also a pain to wear. Just imagine yourself in them for a full night at the club and you can already imagine the pain you are submitting your feet to. Fashion does not have to feel like you are punishing yourself as it can be both beautiful and comfortable. So, if you feel yourself gravitating to a pair of sneakers or fancy flats, there is no reason to wear a pair of pinching stilettos just because you want to look fancy. By all means, wear a pair of sneakers as not only is this considered a rising new trend, you would be making waves and be considered a refreshing trendsetter—a revolutionary fashionista worth emulating.

7.) Women wear women’s clothes while men wear men’s clothes

This belief could not be any more irrelevant than in today’s contemporary fashion time where there has been a rising trend in androgynous looks. Women are no longer constrained to feminine styles and men can now even be seen sporting bags—elegantly so. So, do not confine yourself to gender-specific styles and try to break ground with sartorial styles you have always wanted to try—even if they are not incredibly feminine.

While style has been mostly considered a hit or miss thing, know that you should not restrict yourself to a certain set of rules imposed by people who thought they knew better. Remember, modern fashion is all about finding your style, creating it and developing it and to do that, you must take a look past these rules. Not only would this be completely liberating, but you would feel a lot more in tune to your style as well.

The Psychology of Clothes: Five Surprising Ways Dressing Well Helps You in Life

 


“Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A runway is a spectacle. It is only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed has not much to do with having good clothes. It is a question of good balance and good common sense.” –Oscar de la Renta

 

Since the invention of clothes, it has always been an ingrained human habit to dress every single day. Our clothes do not only serve as a means of protection to outward elements but also as a manifestation of our self-expression and creativity.

Unfortunately, while dressing up for the day is seen as a customary part of the routine, some individuals see it as a negligible part of the day that they can easily overlook. In this regard, some of us would tend to dress sloppily and without care which is in stark contrast with the individuals who dress with deliberate effort and attention. After all, there is a big difference between dressing merely to cover one’s self and dressing to show the world who you are. The former likely owns an assortment of clothes that they would haphazardly throw on to conceal rather than reveal subtle cues about their character while the latter looks a lot more put-together. Between the two, it is a lot likelier that the latter would not only be preferred and well-liked, but also taken a lot more seriously. However, while being well-dressed is in by no means a skill or talent which one can expect to adeptly develop, it might as well be so. The stylishness of the ensemble you wear is not entirely about the brand, cut, color or design of the sartorial item you have, but rather how you wear it. Style is, after all, innate and subjective in such a way that it varies from one individual to another. In any case, it matters not whether you have a preference for hip hop clothing or feel yourself gravitating towards sleeker styles. What matters is that you dress with deliberate care and make an effort.

Moreover, you would notice how dressing well can afford you some advantages in life where it would not have been available had you not dressed better. To illustrate, here are some examples:

1.) It helps you make a good first impression

This sentiment alone speaks for itself and is pretty much self-explanatory. But to elaborate, it has always been a given that dressing well aids you in making an excellent first impression. Whether you are dressing for a job interview or a first date, what you wear plays a pivotal role in the outcome of such event and in more ways than one, it makes a significant impact. Unfortunately, you only get one shot at making a great first impression, so make that one chance count and dress well.

2.) It gives you an appreciation for the more elegant things in life

Possessing great style is a step towards having a good and keen eye for well-designed things in general. Essentially this means that your great taste in clothes would soon translate to excellent taste in other merchandise and would expand from the realm of clothing to things such as architecture and even furniture design. There may even come a time in the future wherein you would buy as many clothes and would focus more on other well-designed items such as a quality piece of art, a statement piece or unique furniture.

3.) It draws the right kind of attention to you

Being dressed well attracts the right kind of attention. However, unlike “peacocking” which is a term designated for the practice of dressing up solely to get noticed, being well-dressed attempts quite the opposite. Good style does not mean loud colors that demand attention but instead, you look put together without really calling too much attention to yourself. You are distinguishable from the crowd, but not in such a way that you would totally stand out. It conveys the kind of message that there is something different about you. It should inspire intrigue as well as curiosity—so much so that people would actually want to go up and talk to you.

4.) It is a good step towards overall self-improvement

Dressing well means that you care about yourself and how you are perceived by others. By extension, this would be taken to mean that you want a more active role in improving yourself and that this is just your initial step. By finding clothes that suit not only your style and preference but your lifestyle as well you are already enhancing the way you live your life. It might seem like a diminutive aspect, but a great haircut a well selected sartorial ensemble and the like can already do you a world of wonders. You would notice it on how people treat you a lot differently. This is because they can sense and notice that there is something about you that has changed. As a result, it might even inspire you to eat healthier, spend more time at the gym doing exercise or even pursue the kind of career and life that you really want for yourself.

5.) It shows people you take care of yourself

Dressing well is a form of self-respect. It shows people that you care enough not to look like a total slob and be perceived as one. Moreover, self-respect demands the same degree of respect from other people as well so you can expect people to treat you with higher regard. It also tells people that you probably have a lifestyle to match and would be under the impression that you are someone who is unafraid to take risks and does know what they want in life. Essentially, it would also look like you have goals in order to achieve your ambitions and goals. In plainer terms, it makes you look like an individual who should be taken seriously.

 

Indeed, being well-dressed by itself is already a subtle art form, and it opens doors to us where there was none to our notice before. After all, our clothes, no matter how negligible and diverse is a subtle form of communication. So, make sure what you are conveying through them is what you wish to hear. Remember, quite a lot are listening to what you have to say.

Fashion Cheat Sheet: Six Things You Should Never Wear on a Date

 

“Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” –Coco Chanel

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away from today, it is highly likely that most of you have already drawn up plans as to how to spend this rather quixotic holiday.

For some, it might be a date with a long-term lover while there would also be inevitably some of you who would be breaking the waters in the game of dating on this very same day. Regardless of whether this is your hundredth or third time to go on a date, it is imperative that you always dress your best. This is especially true if you are going on a first date. After all, your clothes leave a lasting impression about the kind of person you are and the type of message you are trying to convey—so it is essential that you are saying all the right words with your clothing ensemble. First impressions do matter and more often than not, you only get one shot at making them. Unfortunately, the rubrics established when it comes to sartorial style in dating can get rather muddled and sometimes, they conflict. Show some skin, but keep it mysterious or be sultry without being too aggressive—so, where does that leave you?

In any case, your date ensembles require meticulous thought and consideration. After all, you want your new suitors or potential lovers to see your best, so these outfits should be deliberately planned. Ideally, whether you are aiming at wearing wholesale clothing or retail buys, you should go for something that is both fashionable and comfortable without being too revealing. Look like yourself but the best version of you. The choices you make play a key role in communicating a variety of things to your date and as such selecting your ensemble is of critical importance. To help you narrow down the list of sartorial items you can consider wearing to your date, here are all the things that you should keep from wearing on a date:

1.) Thigh boots

Unless you are aiming for a hooker look, wearing thigh-high boots is never a good idea. Sure, they definitely look great when you are dancing at the nightclub with your squad of besties. On a date, they just look woefully out of place. Unfortunately, some women think that this is acceptable footwear on a date seeing as how Richard Gere’s character in Pretty Woman became pretty receptive to handing Julia Roberts his credit card. In reality, however, you do not want to send the wrong message that might make you seem either available or easy. Your allure should be focused on playing up your mystique rather than strutting in something that will definitely get the wrong kind of attention.

2.) Too tight clothing

Too tight clothing is never a good idea for anything. This is especially true when you are out on a date and are planning on having dinner or at least sharing a meal together. Remember, comfort is key and fit is everything. If you try to cram yourself into something that is two to three times smaller than your original size, there is a likely chance you are going to be very uncomfortable on your date. Moreover, it gives off the message that you have low self-esteem and are trying to gain attention in the wrong manner. Lastly, you will spend roughly eighty percent of your time fussing and fidgeting with your clothes which can be incredibly distracting.

3.) Too loose clothing

Quite the opposite of the preceding number, but all the same you should never wear clothes that are too loose for you on a first date. Again, the fit is everything and wearing clothes are too loose would make you seem like you are concealing your body. Moreover, it makes you seem disinterested in either the date itself, yourself or both. Sloppiness is never a good look, and there is a likely chance you will be turning off your date. Sure, loose clothing may be the epitome of comfort, but wear something that makes you feel like yourself as well without looking like the messy version of you.

4.) Brand Icons

Wearing sartorial items that scream off the brand at their emblazoned front makes you look like a walking advertisement. Moreover, it makes you look far too casual—or it might seem like you are showing off. Never wear clothing that contains noticeable brand icons or slogans as your ensembles are meant to be subtle and properly picked. With these, you can elevate your ability to communicate with your date. The brand of your clothes does not help your cause either as it would encourage your date to have preconceived notions about the kind of person you are before you even get the chance to talk to them. Let yourself do the talking instead of your clothes.

5.) Slogans

While shirt slogans look hip and trendy, they do nothing for your date apart from making you look silly or corny. Shirt slogans can be an excellent icebreaker—particularly if you have a date with a great sense of humor but remember, it might not sit well with everyone. Avoid wearing slogan shirts to avoid embodying the slogan for the duration of the date. Instead of relying on your sartorial items to do the ice breaking for you, do them yourself.

6.) Dirty attire

This one is a given. After all, you do not want your date to think you are a slob. Wear clothes that are not only clean but pressed as well. Stains on clothes leave a lasting impression on your date and would make you seem like you are incredibly disinterested about how you look and your date. Dirty and unkempt clothes would make you seem like you are messy and sloppy.

 
Ensure that you will have a memorable night to remember by choosing clothes that are not only comfortable but reflect the real you. Ensure that they convey the right message and would make you seem like the best version of yourself. You might not just know it, but your clothes play a pivotal role in potentially scoring that second date.

Better Style: Seven Everyday Habits for a Better Dressed You

“Women want to look sexy. They want to look stylish, and there is no reason why you cannot be just as sexy and stylish in a size 16 as you can be in a size 2.” –Daisy Fuentes

 

Style has always been a universal aspect known to fashion.

Women who are incredibly put-together seem to possess it in abundance. While there are some of us who struggle to put a sartorial ensemble every morning, there are those who seem to breeze through their wardrobes with the best-looking clothes assembled for them. Sure, style may be a very personal thing and it is uniquely different to each individual, but there are just some women who seem to look effortlessly chic and sophisticated no matter what day it is. Most of us may have wondered where these women seemingly get their energy to dress immaculately and elegantly every day and at times it leaves us baffled as to what their secrets are. Well, you might be surprised to find out that there is no secret really—just that these women have adhered to well-formulated style habits that in effect make them dress and look better.

While there is no universal edict or code on how women should dress, there are certainly a few select habits that would assist you in refining the way you dress. After all, it is not just about choosing the ideal clothes nor doing your makeup as perfectly as you can. Little things such as maintaining a proper closure, routinely editing your closet and a myriad of others things would definitely aid you in the process of assembling a put-together outfit every day. So, if you wish to look and feel as chic and stylish as you wish to be, incorporate some of these daily habits into your routine to wake up feeling positively fresh and fashionable each day. After all, style is never about whether you wear wholesale clothing or branded retail buys, it is how you wear your clothes that matter.

 

Keep your closet organized

An organized closet helps you choose better outfits every single day. Moreover, keeping it organized would encourage you to edit it as much as you can and prevents you from holding on to outfits you no longer need (and are just taking up valuable space). Sure, some women (Cher Horowitz as an example) may be able to put together a highly fashionable outfit from a pile of clothes scattered on the floor. But this enviable feat is not exactly easy to do for mere mortals. So, give your closets a little TLC by folding your clothes and putting them away. Incidentally, if you are trying on things from your closet, put them back in if you are not going to wear them. A well-organized closet will definitely speed up the process of selecting your outfit and editing your look as it will help you see the pieces you are working with.

Practice good posture

Whether you are wearing a particularly good outfit or not, it always pays to have good posture—so, stand tall and erect at all times. In fact, it may even be argued that posture plays a pivotal role in making our outfits stand out. After all, you should think of yourself as the backdrop of your clothes, so do not slouch and showcase it to the world. Not only does it help you exude confidence, it makes you look better and gives you a variety of health benefits as well.

Plan your outfits ahead of time

Instead of standing in front of your closet every morning and bemoaning the fact that you have nothing to wear, why not plan your outfits ahead of time? In this way, you would not spend so much time in the morning what you would wear for that day. Sure, it is nice to inject a little spontaneity into your lives every once in a while, but planning ensures that you would be able to put together an outfit that looks great. Planning as you go tends to make you look like you just wore the first thing you have seen in your closets and rushed out of your homes.

Mix and low fashion

There is no absolute need for you to drape yourself in everything designer just to be considered fashionable. In fact, affordable trendy sartorial items can just be as stylish and chic as designer ones, but you do need to have a keen eye for when you can mix and match high and low fashion. For best results, invest in a few classic but quality fashion pieces and pair them with some of your trendier sets and come up with a surprisingly fresh and fashionable ensemble.

Wear clothes that fit you appropriately

If you are in denial about your size, maybe now is the time to accept the fact that you would no longer fit into the jeans you once wore when you were in high school. Take note, if you wish to be as fashionable and chic as you should be, you should start wearing clothes that fit you well and would have a tailor to tweak your pieces to fit you perfectly. Remember, you do not have to be a certain size to be considered fashionable and stylish, but you do need to wear clothes that fit you.

Take some time to get ready in the morning

While not all of us are gifted with the unique prowess of being chirpy in the morning, it bodes you well to wake up a little earlier than usual to get ready for the day ahead. Not all of us possess the skill of putting together an outfit in five minutes, so give yourself a little extra time to do so. Ignore that snooze button and give yourself some time to focus on your look.

Have a go-to uniform for back up

Apart from being a back-up, consider this ensemble as your signature look—one that you can always rely on to make you look and feel good. These can be various assortments of clothes—so long as when you wear it, you can feel confidently stylish and beautiful.

 

 

While style is not a thing everyone might possess, there are certain ways to help you develop or at refine it. In this regard, it would be best if you took to heart the practices stated above so that you can work your way to a more stylish you. As they say, style is not only an aspect in fashion, but a lifestyle.

Fashion in the Stars: What Your Zodiac Signs Says About Your Style

 

“Fashion is what you are offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.” –Lauren Hutton

 

It has been said that style is a very personal aspect in our lives. What we wear and how we wear it largely depends on our preferences. However, our characteristics and traits–mainly who we are also plays a pivotal role in our sartorial choices. After all, it has always been said that there are hints of who you are in what you wear and that has never been more evident than in your assemblage of clothes every single day. Although most will dismiss star signs as hogwash, there have been numerous studies linking astrological signs to an individual’s personality, character and even something as negligible as their style.

It matters not whether you predominantly favor wholesale clothing over retail, if you have noticed yourself picking a certain kind of clothing over time and time again, chances are it is your astrological sign at work. Regardless of whether you religiously check your horoscope daily or are seemingly skeptical of such implausibility, one cannot deny that there are certain traits and characteristics that align with our star signs and more often than not, they can be undeniably accurate. Our astrological signs often reveal what styles you find yourself most attracted to or at least gravitating to while you are out shopping. If you are a bit doubtful, take a look at this list and see for yourself:

 

Aries

Aries is characterized as being radiant, bright and confident. With this in mind, Aries individuals are known to favor bright and vibrant colors that beckon onlookers to take notice. Some notable colors an Aries loves would be bright blues, reds and greens or any other bold color that makes them shine through.

 

Taurus

Taurus individuals tend to favor quality over quantity. In fact, one might say it is paramount to their nature. More often than not, they find themselves more inclined to earth tones and neutral colors. Taurus individuals would hardly pick outfits for their brands but rather for their craftsmanship and design quality.

 

Gemini

Geminis tend to hog the attention of the room with their incredibly chipper attitude. In this regard, they tend to favor magentas, oranges and yellows which bring their ensembles to life. Unfortunately, their wardrobe might be a little hard to read considering the duality of the twins. Their best bet is to stick to classic staples and pair it with bright accessories.

 

Cancer

Cancers often love to play safe and would play only with colors such as pastels, silver or white. They often look very put-together and ladylike. Vintage and retro accessories are two things a cancer will love.

 

Leo

Leos have a penchant for dramatics—so much so that their tastes tend to be luxurious and demand only the boldest sartorial assemblages. Gold, black and red are colors they tend to favor and would help boost their already soaring confidence.

 

Virgo

Known to be perfectionists, tidy has nothing on a Virgo. In this regard, Virgos feel an incessant need to look their best at all times. For this reason, they would favor basic black and white combinations and would often mix in a bit of earthy tones just to give the look a bit of an accent. If there is anything that personifies this zodiac, it is the fact that they always seem to have a tailored look.

 

Libra

Beauty and style are two things Libras love. With this in mind, they tend to find themselves gravitating towards the colors pink, blue and white. As a consequence of their more extravagant tastes, they would often indulge in luxurious fabrics such as silk and cashmere. Cool, classic and feminine are three things that would characterize a Libra and are known to have a dress for just about any occasion there is.

 

Scorpio

Bold, daring and confident, Scorpios are known to feel their very best in deep plums, black, reds and blues. Making rich and bold colors look their very best is something Scorpios are known to be good at. They also have a knack for playing up their sex appeal as well as enshrouding themselves in mystery which makes them all the more alluring. In fact, one of their go-to outfits would be a pencil skirt with a slit at the side finished off with a knee high boots.

 

Sagittarius

Saggitarians are known for favoring comfort above anything else. Of course, this is not to say that they would compromise style over comfort either. Individuals of these star sign tend to favor colors such as beige, white and peach and pair it with a good pair of jeans for an everyday look. Unrestrictive flowy dresses and simple throw-on blouses are two of their go-to sartorial items that have never failed them.

 

Capricorns

Known to be the most sophisticated and elegant of the zodiac, a Capricorn’s style is often mistaken to be something incredibly austere and somber. However, this is not always the case. Although they favor sophistication above all, they can make it look incredibly effortless. Tailored pieces such as trousers and blazers are their forte and luxurious fabrics in colors such as green, black and indigo will always have a special place in a Capricorn woman’s heart.

 

Aquarius

Aquarians love to experiment and it shows in their sartorial ensembles. In fact, some of the things that they do love are sheer maxi skirts or clothes with eccentric designs. In fact, out-of-this-world designs are excellent for playing up their up for anything nature and their flair for experimentation. Staple colors that should always have a place in their closets are violets, electric blues, turquoise or anything that is vibrant and bright such as red—the boldest known color.

 

Pisces

Lovers of romance, individuals ruled by the Pisces star signs would look best when their romantic personality is shown through their clothes. They should showcase their feminine silhouettes with shimmering and soft fabrics that would complement their inner quixotic personalities. Softer colors such as pale blue, sea foam green, lavender and pinks are colors that would match a Pisces’s personality.
