Fashion trends change so often that you practically have to be a millionaire to keep up with them. With fashion, it’s always “out with the old, in with the new.” There are some things, however, that will always stay the same when it comes to looking good.
Every season, different colors are popular and trendy. Not only will you see certain styles of clothing all the time, but you’ll see the same colors and color families repeated. While bright, neon colors might be hot one year, they’ll look outdated and unpleasantly shocking another. There is one color, though, that’s always stylish, and that’s black.
Black clothing can be worn year after year. While it might not be the most popular color in the summer, you’ll never look out of place or out of style when you’re wearing black. Black is a simple color that can build upon and or pair with just about any fashion trend to create varied looks.
The Perfect Fit
When people are trying to look good, there is one thing that should always be sought, and that’s the perfect fit. The way our clothes fit us is the biggest factor in how good they look on us. Many people underestimate how the fit of their clothes can affect their entire look. You could have the most fashionable outfit in the world, but if it’s really too big or too small for you, it won’t look good.
Some people think that wearing bigger clothes will make them look bigger, and smaller clothes will make them look smaller, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. When you’re shopping, focus less on clothes that are “trendy,” and more on finding clothes that fit you perfectly.
There’s an “x” factor that makes any fashion trend work, and that’s confidence. In fact, confidence is what makes you look good no matter what you’re wearing. If you think, feel, and act like you look good, then you will look good to everyone else, too. Fashions will change, but confidence is something that never, ever goes out of style.
Accessories also go through different fashion trends, but some accessories are timeless and look great always. Simple, diamond (or CZ!) stud earrings are classic, and they go with any type of outfit. Simple silver or gold jewelry pieces that don’t have a lot of embellishments are great things to invest in. A basic leather belt, or a small clutch handbag, are also timeless pieces that can last in your wardrobe for years on end.
For women, one fashion item that’s quintessentially female is a pair of high heels. You can never go wrong with a nice pair of pumps, to be exact. High heels can come in outrageous styles, colors, and heights, but a pair of black, nude, or red three-inch pumps is always in. They’re perfect to wear with any outfit – a formal event with a dress, at work with a business suit, or out-on-the-town to dress up a pair of jeans. Every woman should have at least one pair of comfortable, well-fitting pumps in her closet.
