Going out? Staying in? No matter your plans, if you want to impress, you should stick to a few specific style rules to help you stand out in the best way possible. Because, if we're being honest, no one wants to look like everyone else.
Take the "fabric-to-fit formula" into consideration
It sounds complicated, but it’s really straightforward:
Simple fabrics should be on a tailored silhouette (rich velvet = fitted)
Loud fabrics should fall away from the body (bold & busy prints – loose)
Pick one standout piece
No matter what way you spin it: less is always more. It’s easy to get caught up in the glitz & glam and try to wear the statement earrings, with the necklace, with the bold outfit with the sparkly heel.
A nice style juxtaposition is picking one standout part of your outfit (like a great pair of earrings) and wearing it with a tuxedo blazer and skinny jeans.
This time of year, everyone tends to follow the same style formula. Why not try out some interesting suiting or a jumpsuit. It’s nice to change it up, and when you’re renting, you’re not stuck with it so it’s the perfect opportunity to get out of your comfort zone!
