When trying to make our outfit look great, we often tend to remember little nuances at the last moment or we don’t pay attention to them at all. However, it’s the details that usually give one’s look both the feeling of completeness and demonstrate a person’s perfect fashion sense.
Bright Side collected things you should pay attention to in order to gain the admiration of the public.
A thread of pearls is a beautiful accessory that has one disadvantage — an elegant pearl necklace rarely looks modern and tends to make its owner look older. That’s why only true fashion mongers can choose and combine this type of accessory correctly.
However, there is good news for all those people who admire the tender shine of mother-of-pearl. The designers of accessories continue to create more and more interesting and modern options. Today things like retro-pearls in non-ideal spherical shapes, or Baroque pearls are back in fashion. Accessories with these pearls look fashionable and modern. If you have a desire to experiment with them, start with earrings.
A watch is one of the most useful accessories. They enhance a thin female wrist and complete the look of a woman who doesn’t waste her time. According to the experts at Harper’s Bazaar, today accessories with a transparent case, where the mechanism is visible, are in fashion, as well as watches with long straps that can wrap around the wrist several times and men’s style watches.
Given the variety of styles and the number of watch brands, this accessory can be chosen for any outfit and in a wide price range. If you are looking for a watch for everyday use and want it to match your basic wardrobe, opt for a case with a minimum amount of detail and a strap in a neutral color. Bracelet-watches with complex designs can be a good add-on to an evening look and are perfect for some evening events.
3. Silk scarf
It’s not easy to wear a silk scarf and look young. The good news is that this accessory gives lightness to the image and draws attention to certain body parts. As Vogue says, today it’s fashionable to use a scarf as a decoration for the waist, a bag, your hair, as a top, or even as a wrist or ankle bracelet. If you prefer to tie a scarf on your neck, opt for a color that will enhance your facial skin tone and emphasize the shade of your eyes and hair.
4. Clothes with animal prints
According to Vogue, animal print is a frequent feature of fashion collections and is extremely popular this year. It is used for decorating literally everything — from coats and skirts to dresses and tights. However, this pattern can be tricky — it can either create a bold and playful look or spoil everything.
Very often, a stylish and harmonious outfit can be created if there is only one item with an animal print in the look. Also, remember that the pattern itself is quite defiant, which means you shouldn’t additionally try to enhance your figure with an extremely tight style, with transparent inlays, or with a mini skirt. Otherwise, you may end up looking vulgar instead of beautiful.
Kimono styles are still popular. They are famous for the richness of their bright prints and the texture of their fabrics. This item can be used not only in the summer, but it can even make a more conservative look feel fresh. The experts at Vogue are sure that you can make your look stylish by wearing a kimono instead of a dress or you can add it to jeans and a basic top. Anyway, try to not overdo it with too many details.
Sometimes we wear glasses out of necessity, other times — as an accessory. In both cases, choosing a beautiful frame is quite a challenge. However, the effort of overcoming it won’t be in vain because glasses attract attention to the eyes, can correct the facial features, and can make a statement about their owner’s good sense of style. “Today bold black, classic tortoise, half-transparent plastic, and ‘wired’ geometrical frames are trendy,” writes Italo Pantano, the fashion editor of Italian Vogue. It’s high time to start experimenting.
High Kepi will add more height, a Panama will add whimsy, while a turban will make your look more mysterious. Don’t be afraid to try different types of headwear in order to find out which one suits you the best. However, it’s important to remember that it should match your entire outfit as well as the shape of your face. For example, a wide-brimmed hat doesn’t look good on women with a triangular face — it widens the face, visually “moving” the eyes to the center. It also enhances the shape of the nose, that can be slightly imperfect.
As Glamour notes, a bralette is becoming a wardrobe staple that’s not going out of style. You can create both alluring and daring images with its help. You can add a bralette to a skirt, jeans, or high-waisted pants. You can also put on a blouse or sweater, with a leather jacket, a blazer, or a cardigan over it and you’ll see how ordinary things can change.
If you can manage to combine provocativeness and tenderness, a bralette will become your favorite item of clothing because you will be the center of attention everywhere.
9. Men’s style clothing
The inimitable Coco Chanel proved to the world of fashion that clothing in men’s styles can be appropriate for any fashion-monger’s wardrobe. At first glance it might seem that this shirt or blazer will hide your figure, but in reality, it can enhance a woman’s attractiveness quite effectively. That’s what Sharon Graubord, a top manager at an agency that forecasts modern trends in New York, says.
Choose clothing according to your size in order to create beautiful looks. And combine clothing with masculine and feminine details playing on the contrast of coldness and warmth. Bright makeup, flashy accessories and bags, and high-heel shoes can perfectly enhance the menswear look.
10. Asymmetric clothing
Not every woman would be willing to try a look with asymmetric details because they can change the proportions of the body significantly. However, at times it can be beneficial for us because this uneven cut draws attention to the necessary places, taking the focus off of things that are out of proportion or other imperfections. For example, an asymmetric skirt emphasizes legs, while an asymmetric neckline draws attention to clavicle, neck, and breasts.
Sarah Young, the fashion and beauty expert at The Independent, a British newspaper, outlines that asymmetric tops with ties (chokers) on the neck and one-shoulder dresses are popular nowadays. As an option for office wear, she recommends wearing a shirt-like top that goes well with wide trousers or pleated midi-skirts.
11. High heels
It’s often mistakenly believed that high platform shoes look elegant and stylish. However, it’s better to give preference to other types of shoes, like ones with a low platform or no platform at all. All because shoes with a high platform have a tendency to make the whole body look disproportionate and make feet look like “hoofs.”
It’s also worth noting that high heels are always fashionable — they look elegant, nice, and graceful. They can enhance any look and make you the center of everybody’s attention.
