Anonymous said: How do i learn to be better at styling or putting together an outfit? I love fashion, and although I'm not a diehard fashion addict, i still collect photos on my desktop and blog things i like. But When it comes down to getting dressed and putting on an outfit my heart sinks! I get very overwhelmed and i can't think straight. I feel like whatever i put on looks wrong or doesn't work?! How can i get better at this? How can i put something funky and stylish together easily without it being boring?
Our advice is to dress by the piece.
1.find one piece that inspires your mood or attitude for the day and start there.
2. take in account where you will be going and what you will be doing that day
so you have a crazy pair of printed tights that you want to try out, but youre only going to the movies so you want to dress them down, where them under jean shorts with a t shirt and some jewlery to keep it trendy and cute.
or you have an adorable babydoll dress and you want to make it an everyday outfit, throw a button down underneath and a pair of black jeanss.
Style.com’s coverage of runway shows is always good for checking out how the designers are styling the seasons trends and cuts, and keepdoing what you are doing(collection inspiring pictures). Try checking out a website you would like to shop from and seeing what their lookbook outfits are.
use your mood to start small and build an outfit. sometimes we will try on 5 possibilities with one shirt before settling( and holly picks out and tries on her clothes for the next day before she goes to bed) this helps, too with the second guessing. you can even take a picture and sleep on whether or not you think the outfit makes sense if it makes you more confident and thats really what makes you look good :) <33
