“People will stare, make it worth their while,” says TOM FORD, one of the most talented designers of all times. Well, who doesn’t love being well dressed on not just occasions but also on casual days? We often try our best to wear the most trendy and fashionable clothing. We follow fashion influencers on Youtube, search up inspirations on Pinterest, but still end up missing out on some basic important fashion tips that we should consider while dressing up. Even dressing up stunningly requires some amount of mastery and skill (which is why celebrities hire private stylists).

Obviously, some of us can’t afford stylists. But no worries, this article enlists some important Fashion Rules or Tips that’ll help you to level up your wardrobe (without spending money on Stylists).

Some important Fashion Rules or Tips to remember include :

Check you Closet of Clothes once in a Month

One of the key elements, towards maintaining your style is checking your closet and arranging it in a feasible manner so that you can locate your clothes. This will also help you find out what essential clothing items you don’t have. This step will also help you to provide a better insight into how you can mix up your clothes and wear them creatively.

Identify your Body type and choose Clothes accordingly

The most important tip to remember while buying clothes or styling yourself is to identify what is your body shape or your body type (such as Pear Shape, Hourglass body, etc.). This will gradually help you to find what best suits your body type and you’ll look better. 

Choose Clothes that embrace your Skin Tone

Similarly, don’t forget to take into account your skin tone, which varies from individual to individual. Although all kinds of shades work with every skin tone, there are specific shades of clothes that embrace one’s skin tone, thus, try choosing such clothes.

Get a Good Pair of Innerwear

A good set of innerwear is one of the most crucial aspects while deciding what you’re going to wear. Well, now you might be thinking why is innerwear considered essential! Innerwear makes a lot of difference in how your attire will appear from the outside as an entire piece. Hence, knowing what inner wear should be worn with what kind of cloth is very important. 

Plan what you are going to wear

At Fashion Walk shows, designers often plan prior to the launch about which model will wear what clothes. In everyday life too, planning prior to any occasion about what you’re going to wear, will solve most of your problems. You definitely won’t patiently decide about your ‘attire of the day’ when you’re getting late for the occasion, thus, planning ahead of time is considered important. 

Don’t feel Shy to try Different Clothing

From patterned clothing to clothes with funky or aesthetically pleasing prints. One important fashion tip is to keep on trying different kinds of clothes. You can even think of using accessories with your attire to look top-notch such as a scarf or some jewelry. Other important tips include layering your clothes (wearing clothes in layers, especially in winters). So yes!! Trying Different will definitely make you one great fashionable individual.

Be Confident about who you are and Love Yourself

Take these 7 steps to practice unconditional self love

All the mentioned fashioned tips above would face a big failure if you don’t love every inch of your body or skin. Self-Love and Self-Acceptance are very important tools to build on the confidence any individual requires while wearing any clothing. A very crucial tip would also be, ‘Don’t feel strange about your different taste of fashion, be confident about whatever you’re wearing or planning to wear’.

“As consumers, we have so much power to change the world by just being careful in what we buy.”

– Emma Watson

Fashion: Like every rain starts from a drop, it all started with brands releasing their clothing collection 2 seasons a year, and now we have arrived a time where 52 micro-collections are introduces per year, with Zara putting forward 24 collections and H&M having 12-16 collections per year.

The drop in the price of garments has urged the potential population to buy 5 times more clothes than bought 20 years ago. This implies that 80 billion clothes garments are manufactured each year, and when light is cast over this side of reality, it also shadows a despondency on the fact that each year, an average of 35 kg textile waste is generated per person in the US. Thus, imagine the amount of harm being caused by and caused to the multitudes on this planet.

If we come to face the grimier side of this attractive coin of fashion, trends are changing at such a fast pace that people can’t keep up, leading to a higher proportion of purchases in order to stay up to date. This has encouraged the mass production of cheap and disposable clothing. Where on one hand it makes the customers shopping hastily, and increasing the brand sales, on the other hand, this reduction in production costs happens due to the continuous accumulation of cheap garments, which in the shorter or longer run can take a serious toll on the lives of the garment workers, our health and the health of our planet.

After the statistics of materiality, now let’s open our eyes towards actuality. According to sustainyourstyle.org, the fashion industry is the second-largest polluter in the world, which falls in line right after the oil industry. As the pillars of this industry are growing and increasing, so is the environmental damage. However, one of the solutions mentioned by them to mitigate this problem is to create awareness and willingness among the fashion hoarders to change.

In most of the garment-producing countries, the untreated toxic water coming out from textile factories is dumped directly into the nearby water bodies. This wastewater contains substances like mercury, arsenic, and leads among many others, which is destructively harmful to the people living nearby the rivers, who consume it for their daily purposes, and also for the aquatic creatures. Another injuring source of contamination is the fertilizers used at the time of cotton production, which offers the fear of being evaporated through water and causing damage in the later run.

Thus, as an alternative, sustainyourstyle.org suggests choosing clothes that are manufactured in countries having strict environmental regulations for the factories, for example, Canada and the US. Another solution could be to choose organic fibers that do not require chemicals in order to be produced.

Textile Industry, One of the Causes of Water Pollution

This site can be visited for a more detailed analysis on the pollution caused by fashion industries.

Fashion – Affects the environment

  • Synthetic fibers like polyester, nylon, etc. used in the making of a majority of clothing are made from fossil fuel. This not only makes production much more energy intensive, but also accounts for 10% of global emission of carbon.
  • 5.2% of the waste in our landfills comprise of textiles, and can take up to 200 years to decompose.
  • In the words of James Conca from FORBES: ” Cheap synthetic fibres also emit gases like N2O, which is 300 times more damaging than CO2.”

Therefore, with many people not realizing that all that glitters is not gold and the apparel which attracts also harms by being made of toxic chemicals, affecting greenhouse gas emissions, causing water pollution and consuming many of earth’s natural resources, it can be concluded that the environmental influence of the fashion industry is crippling. (Westling, n.d.)

Slim women

All are beautiful in their own way. One should have self-satisfaction with their own appearance. But, when it comes to clothing, the way you wear a garment is more important than the one you wear. Very often, something that suits one particular person may not be for others. Whether specific clothing suits a woman or not will depend on various factors such as her age, complexion, and body shape. Dressing up is more crucial for skinny girls, as not everything looks good on them.

Things like horizontal stripes look good on slim women. Pants and skirts are a preferred option for such women. In fact, those women also look beautiful in salwar kameez, churidars, and saris.

While wearing jeans, slim women advise staying away from classic cuts and opting for slim ones. Cropped clothing, like cropped shirts and pants, also looks good on slim women. You can also opt for jackets, thick sweaters, sweatshirts, and other heavy clothing. The article talks about the different dresses that are suitable for a slim girl and goes on to explain some dress tips that apply to them.

While most girls look sexy when they flaunt their legs, understand that since their legs are slim, it won’t look good if they do the same. However, you can still look beautiful by wearing long dresses and long skirts. This type of clothing fits snugly at the waist and then flows down loosely, flaunting your figure at its best.

Go for bulky sleeves

Slim women and girls look slim in sleeveless dresses. Therefore, try to opt for long-sleeved dresses. Volume sleeves will allow you to balance your silhouette and therefore create a fuller look. In addition, dresses with larger prints or embroidered on the sleeves help change the viewer’s focus on skinny hands.

Opt for tight-fitting flared pants

Make sure you don’t make the mistake of going for loose pants at the waist and thighs. Doing so will make you appear slimmer than you are. Instead, go for tight-fitting pants with flared pants. These will not only give you a better shape but also make the right work clothes.

Go for padded blouses

The idea of ​​wearing padded blouses is applicable when you wear sari or lehenga. If it is the winter season, try to choose the very padded ones. They will give you the necessary volume in the right places and make it difficult for people to take their eyes off you. However, in the summers, try to stick to the lightly padded ones as they don’t make you sweat.

There is a reason that sneakers, yoga pants, and sportswear are increasing more and more. Because young and old fashionistas are adopting the attitude that comfort is style. Comfort is king (or queen). I regularly tell my clients that if they are wearing a dress or pants, they spend a lot of time pulling on them or if they have trouble walking gracefully because the heel of a shoe is too high, it immediately subtracts from its excess. Everything elegant

Fashionistas – 2020

Gone are the days of fashion when women got into a pointy stiletto to look/feel sexy and relevant. Farewell days from sunrise to sunset when men need to wear a three-piece suit to get respect. Pointy shoes and three-piece suits are still important to a carefully selected wardrobe, but they are no longer the only options. Today all fashionistas believe that you can be elegant and cozy.

You can easily combine a sharp, soft blazer with knit pants and crisp new tennis shoes (emphasis on crisp new ones). Or you can wear a great pair of yoga pants with a cashmere sweater, a beautiful scarf, and polished flats. Both sets convey sleek, elegant, and smart.

The fit of your outfit, including your shoes, is paramount. Comfortable clothing should fit properly, otherwise, it may appear sloppy.

So here are the rules for staying stylish, classy, ​​and modern:

  • If you wear sneakers with something (suit, dress, pants, etc.), they must be new and without handcuffs.
  • When you incorporate yoga pants into a set, please make sure your blouse (sweater, jacket, silk tunic) completely cover your torso. If your crotch shows a change to jeans or soft pants.
  • It is okay to combine gym clothes (also known as athleisure) with custom or stylish items. Keep it in one piece (be it your jacket, your sweatpants or your fitted tank). In this way, you will not be confused with the Bikram yoga class that only lets out two doors.
  • Sweats are great. Hoodies and joggers are incredibly stylish if you keep the proportions correct. Make sure if you are layering the first layer is snug so the overlays feel and look good.
  • Comfort does not mean anything, less than cozy can not be used. A study of which brands fit you best, and works to tailor the habit to your structured pieces to balance your otherwise relaxed clothing.
