My Tips on How to Elevate Your Outfits

In every occasion, event, or important activity, part of our preparation is planning an outfit. You have an outfit in mind that you planned and decided to wear for the big event. Assessing yourself in the mirror, the outfit didn’t turned out as expected. Frustrated, you asked yourself, “What went wrong? What’s missing?”

Small details in every clothes are as important as the bigger ones. Never overlook fine details as they can add the unique factor in your fit. Small details such as embellishments, patchworks, hem frays, delicate linings, and such add more flavor to a basic piece.

Try different Silhouettes

Silhouette is crucial in choosing an outfit since it either defines or create an illusion in our body. If you are thinking of wearing a dress, refrain from always sticking to fitted or loose silhouettes. Instead, combine or modify the traditional fitted and loose silhouettes. Explore from other types such as A-line that is best at highlighting the waist. For a more flowy and dramatic look, go for empire or ball gown silhouettes that cascade naturally on your body.

Layer your clothes

Putting additional layer of clothing is not just meant for cold weathers. Layering prevents in making an outfit to look “bare” or “incomplete”. An example and probably the most easiest to pull off is to layer a long sleeved button-down to either a crew neck tee, tank top, tube top, or any blouse of choice.
