5. Color Adjustments

A proper balance and contrast in color add a whole charm to your whole look. Do not wear tops, bottoms, shoes, handbags all together in bright colors. If your outfit (either top or bottom) is in a bright color, then opt for a nude or light-colored pair of shoes. Always try to wear shoes and bags of the same color. Avoid wearing colorful jeans because these are not in trend anymore and also these do not look good at all. Try wearing shoes of black, white, nude, or beige colors. 

Try to mix and match with different colors for different looks and outfit options. If you are confused about matching the colors properly, then start with solid colors. When in doubt, wear black, red, blue, and whites.

6. Wear Quality Fabrics

Investing in something of good fabric might cost you more than one of cheaper quality but it will surely last much longer than the cheaper ones. Also, the good fabric outfits will add that classy eel to your whole look. Always try to add natural fibers like cotton and silk to your wardrobe.

7. Accessories

Try to invest in your accessories. You do not have to invest a lot. Buy a maximum of 4-5 pieces which are like your signature statement pieces and match most of your wardrobe. Try to wear a golden minimal neckpiece or a choker, add a pair of hoops and a dainty watch. And if you are wearing a silver neckpiece then go for silver hoops because of the color combination. Do not go overboard with lots of accessories. Style it minimally and you are good to go.

8. Look into Details

A proper piece of clothing with nice details implies its cost and quality. A very expensive shirt can look very awful if one of its buttons is missing. So it is very important to look into the details. Before wearing any outfit, check if it has any loose threads, missing buttons, cuts, holes, or stains. 

You should not only be focusing on the details of the outfits, you also need to focus on your personal hygiene and grooming. 

  • Make sure that your hair is nicely tied. Do not use heating tools until necessary.
  • No one likes bad breath. You might look the best but once you start talking and if there is bad breath then it can create a wrong impression. It is better to brush and floss properly.
  • Chapped nails is a big NO-NO. Do not chew your nails. Keeps your nails in proper shape and do avoid applying bright nail paints. Stick to subtle and minimal colors.
  • Do not overboard with makeup. Apply the basics and minimum on your face and most importantly try to seal it with a setting spray.
