As a classy lady who knows how to look good, you can get your wardrobe to function more than it already does to make life a lot easier for you. These fashion tips are tailored to help you look best in any occasion.
1. Get Rid of Junks
Usually, it is advised that any cloth that you haven’t worn in more than 6 months is not useful to you and should be discarded. Too many clothes make you confuse when making decisions as to which to put on for a particular occasion.
If you want to stop spending hours in front of your closet, it needs to be neat and coordinated. Hoarding clothes always lead to a mess. You can give the clothes you don’t need to someone who will utilise them more than you. However, the ones that are very old, throw them away or burn them right away.
2. Shop Purposely
Stumbling into a shop to buy clothes spontaneously, just because you have the money to do so may not be the way to get the best. Know exactly what you need to buy; the colour and design, so that you don’t get swerved by the seller’s sweet-mouth. In order to be efficient and be happy with your choice, you should go shopping with a proper hairstyle, makeup and shoes, so you can see the bigger picture, fully dressed.
3. Accessorize Simple Outfits with Bold Colours
A piece of jewellery would add class and spark to a dull outfit, so try as much as possible to accessorise. A nice touch of bow-tie can turn a blouse to have a shirt-like look. The way you accessorise is also an important part of your style. When buying accessories, feel free to get them in wild colours that you would not normally own a cloth in, in order to bring out the beauty in your outfits.
4. Know the Rules of Showing Skin
Women who have beautiful skins and complexion usually look for ways to show it off. Mind you, you can only show off one area at a time. You can’t be wearing a crop top on miniskirts, neither is it OK to wear an open-back top on bum-shots. If you want to expose some flesh in the lower part of your body, make sure the upper part is well covered. Vice versa!
5. Wear Smart Jackets Only
Purchasing jackets, coats and blazers have just one rule – it needs to fit your shoulders. If it’s too tight or too wide, don’t bother buying it with the hope of making an adjustment. No matter how good your tailor is, s/he may not be able to make a perfect amendment.
6. Wear Clothes Made For Your Body Shape
This is one of the most faulted fashion tips for women. Every woman was made uniquely. You need to understand your body shape and dress accordingly. It will be nice if you pay close attention to your most endowed parts, accentuate them in your outfits.

Another effective way is to fill a couple of freezer bags with water, place them in your shoes, and put them into your freezer to stay overnight, you’ll be able to see a huge difference in the morning.

No matter the type of jeans you plan to buy, you should always go with a smaller size. This is because after washing them, they stretch. You can spice your jean wardrobe with different shades of it – sky blue, deep blue, grey, green, etc.
9. Give Yourself a Treat
