Fashion comes and goes, but your personal style doesn’t have to be so temporary. Once you’ve developed a look that you feel comfortable in and you know what looks good for your body, you can dress according to your personal style without having to buy cheap items just for the sake of being trendy.
So many people think that they can’t look good without blowing their budget. Let’s prove them wrong.
Natural Is Better
You can wear all the makeup you want, and it will make you look good until it has to come off. What’s underneath all that makeup is also important because without healthy skin, makeup will not settle on your face flawlessly. You should also work on a skincare routine that revives the youthful glow of your skin so that even if you have to go out barefaced or with minimal makeup, you will still look and feel confident.
Your hair can also benefit from some TLC. Gone are the days of stiff, perfectly coifed hairstyles. Now, it’s time to embrace natural hair that’s not weighed down by too many chemicals in your styling products. By using natural anti-dandruff shampoo, you can keep your hair looking its best. A sea salt spray can give it texture, but the rest of your haircare routine need not be so chemically charged.
Less Is More
Looking expensive has nothing to do with flaunting the brands you’re wearing. You can have a Gucci belt thrown over your equally expensive items, or you can get stylish pieces together without having to rely on their price to make them look attractive. Simple decisions go a long way, such as choosing to iron your clothes to remove wrinkles and matching the metals in your bag, jewelry, and shoes.
You don’t need to show so much skin to look attractive, either. It’s all about the silhouette and the curves, and if you need help, go ahead and wear shapewear underneath your clothes. The right underwear can also hide unsightly lines that cheapen the look of your outfit.
The Right Attitude
You could be wearing thousands of dollars in clothes and accessories, but if you don’t feel comfortable in them, you will not look beautiful. It’s the worst feeling when you don’t feel good in your own skin. This is why you should always choose comfort over style. They say that beauty is pain, but it’s unnecessary suffering if you have comfortable options that you’re choosing to ignore. Name-brands these days offer similar styles to cater to the trendy crowd, so you don’t even have to shop outside your comfort zone to get the look that you want.
Before you leave the house, ask yourself if you’re satisfied with your look. Give yourself that boost of confidence so that when you head out, you’re not assuming everyone who looks at you is thinking negatively about your appearance. You can get all the compliments, but if you’re not willing to accept them, you will not be satisfied with your outfit.
The price of your whole outfit doesn’t matter. What’s more important is that you feel good about what you’re wearing.
