Hey everyone! It's Chloe from the Blog Team! So you're struggling with style and don’t know what to do about it. Well here’s one tip: don't just go shopping and add things to your cart that you like, there’s way more to it than that...
Step One: Lifestyle
The type of life you live and where you live can affect your style in many ways. Let’s say you're just a regular person and it’s summer you don’t have a job and you like to go out a lot, if this is you, you might want to try a casual style or something that fits your life better.
Step Two: Find Inspiration
My favorite way to find inspiration is through Pinterest, it has all the styles imaginable! Pay attention when finding inspiration because skin tone and body type can make things look different than they really are, not everything that a fashion model or influencer wears will look the same on all body types.
Step Three: SHOP!
But be careful don’t go overboard. Start with a couple base outfitsand from there just keep adding on and soon enough you will have a closet full of clothes that you love. When shopping at first, you want to buy basics, basics are just plain black and white shirts, crop tops, tank tops, and cami’s these are shirts you can pair with any and everything without your outfit looking tacky. After you buy your basics you can buy your essentials. Essentials are the opposite of basics. Basics are unique and fit your style only. When styling an essential try to stick with one essential per outfit because if you add to many essentials your outfit starts to look tacky.
Step Four: Styling
Honestly this could be the hardest part but here is an easy method to help you learn to style outfits. This idea is actually Coco Chinelo’s on YouTube. Basically you want to try and find one of the outfits from your inspiration and try to copy it EXACTLY or as close as possible and then once you've done that switch out one item from that outfit. That can be the shirt the pants or even the sneakers! This will help because it will ease you into styling clothes.
Step Five: Style of the Outfit
There are four main types of outfits: the tight-tight fit, the loose-loose fit, the loose-tight fit and the tight-loose fit. I know it sounds like a lot but let me break it down. First, the tight-tight fit contains a tight shirt with tight pants. A loose loose fit is a loose top with loose bottoms, do you see where i'm going here? My personal favorite outfit is a tight loose fit, a tight shirt with loose bottoms. This outfit of a girl with a black top, would be more of a tight loose fit, and this one at the bottom would be a loose tight fit!
That's a wrap on these tips for helping you guys on your journey to finding your style! This blog post was heavily inspired by Coco Chinelo.
