Celebrities like Beyoncé and Angelina Jolie always have poise and great style. That’s because they have personal stylists, makeup artists, and hair professionals to ensure they always look their best. But you don’t need all of that help to look your best. You can do it yourself with a little effort.
Here are some tips on dressing like a celebrity and feeling confident in what you’re wearing:
Consider Getting a Haircut
Your hair is one of the first things people notice about you. A great haircut will make you look and feel more beautiful and confident. Your hair can highlight your best features by following your hair texture, face shape, and lifestyle.
Expert hairstylists might be more expensive, but their knowledge and experience with different hair types can make a big difference in the quality of your haircut. If you’re on a budget, many beauty schools offer discounted services. You can also check out Groupon for deals at local salons.
Wear the Right Fit
If you wear something too tight, it can be very uncomfortable. It can also cause health problems like headaches, indigestion, and constipation. If you wear something too loose, it might fall off or get caught in something, and you could get hurt. It might also make you look slovenly.
In addition, tailored clothes look better because they fit the body well. Tailors and seamstresses can alter the clothes to fit you perfectly. Your clothes won’t be loose or baggy, and they will look much neater and cleaner. With this in mind, not all clothes have to be tailored. For the best look, having your blazers, pencil skirts, dresses, and pants tailored will suffice.
However, tailored clothes often cost more than off-the-rack clothes, but they are worth the investment because they will last longer and always look good on you.
Choose Bags That Complement Your Height
Your bag can also make or break your look. A big, bulky bag will make you look frumpy, while a small clutch won’t have enough room to carry all your essentials. Opt for a medium-sized bag that will complement your outfit without overshadowing it.
Consider smaller bags and clutches if you lack height because larger bags can make you look even shorter. On the other hand, if you’re on the taller side, consider slightly larger bags—for example, tote bags and shoulder bags. That way, its size can balance out your proportions because a more petite bag can make you look taller than you really are.
Clean Your Accessories
People often just wear, remove, and store their accessories such as jewelry, belts, and watches without caring for them. This causes the accessories to get scratched, tarnished, and dented. And wearing them will affect your style.
You should have your jewelry cleaned and polished every six months. Even an accessory as everlasting as a diamond needs some TLC. In that case, you can always visit the jewelers who offer restoration or resizing services for your glimmering selection. Better yet, it might be time to add another diamond accessory to your ring collection with an eternity ring made from diamond. On the other hand, leather belts should be conditioned every six months, so they won’t dry out, crack, or fade. You can use a leather conditioner or cream to maintain the suppleness of the leather. Lastly, for your watches, you must keep them wind once a week and have the battery changed every two years. You can always take it to the watchmaker if you don’t know how to do it.
It might seem like a lot of work to keep up with your accessories, but it’s worth it in the long run. Not only will you save money by not having to replace them often, but you’ll also always look your best.
Shoe Care Basics
Shoes should also be taken care of to look their best. Use a damp cloth to wipe them down. This will remove any dirt or debris that may be on the surface. Afterward, apply good shoe polish until the surface is evenly coated. Allow the polish to dry for a few minutes. Then buff the shoes with a clean, dry cloth. This will give them a nice shine.
You should also check your shoes, especially heels, for signs of breaking down because this can not only ruin your look but also leave you barefoot if it breaks while you’re outside. If you see any cracks, fraying, or other signs of wear and tear, replace the shoes or have them repaired as soon as possible.
The best way to look good without changing your style is to find a look that suits you and your personality. You will look good if you feel comfortable and confident in what you are wearing. Experiment with different styles and looks until you find something that works for you.
