Tips And Tricks To Having Great Style – Everyday! August 16, 2017 – Posted in: FASHION, How To

Style has no real definition and it has nothing to do with fashion trends. Fashion is what you’re offered by designers and influencers all over the world but style is what you choose – what defines you and it’s something that comes from within you. That being said, there are certain wardrobe essentials that will help you build a strapping foundation for your ensemble. Whether your style is edgy or feminine, these essentials are rudimental in anchoring whatever amazing cool pieces you throw on top!

1. BASICS

Whether it is plain white tee, a grey cardigan or a pair of plain black leggings – always count on the humble basics to sway your style in any direction that you want. You have the freedom to accessorize and play mix-and-match all you want!

3. Invest in innerwear

Consider innerwear the building blocks to your ensemble. The right bra and underwear is the foundation upon which you create an outfit that defines who you are. Often times, wearing the wrong innerwear can ruin your look. Always take into careful consideration the body-type you fall in, the kind of clothes you are wearing and pick your innerwear accordingly. For instance, a heavy balconette bra would not be ideal if you’re wearing a thin white t-shirt. Invest in the right t-shirt bras for everyday wear, it’s going to be the best buy you’ll ever make.
