Most fashion magazines out there tell you to go to this store, get a duplicate of that celebrity’s outfit, create a look board, but honestly, who has the time to do any of that? Fashion should be a creative outlet, not something that eats away at your time, money and mental health.
So, today we take a look at some of the essential guides, hacks and tricks for the lazy girls so that she can spending a few minutes to look as fabulous as she wants to.
- Go for garments that are made with fabric that doesn’t crease: Here’s the thing, wearing cotton dresses is the ultimate pleasure, but cotton creases very, very quickly and efficiently, which means more ironing for you. To reduce work, we suggest that you stick to fabrics like nylon, polyester, crepe, wool or even lycra.
- Check for online sales and discounts at peak time: Most online stores have a bunch of discount and promotion offers as well as sales to promote popularity same as Dealvoucherz. We suggest that you bookmark a few of these websites to get the best vouchers and deals, and the cheapest clothes. Also, make sure to keep an eye out for deals and discount offers at your small-scale local stores and boutiques.
- Choose one statement accessory: As they keep saying, too much of anything can be wrong. The same goes for accessorizing. Pick one statement accessory to go with your outfit. It could be a large headband, a blinged out collar necklace or even a statement ring. As the godmother of fashion, Coco Chanel herself said, when accessorizing, always take off the last thing that you put.
- Break-in your new shoes beforehand and carry insoles: Breaking in new heels is still a painful experience, no matter how comfortable the seller tells you the shoes are. If you are buying new shoes for a particular event, we suggest that you break them in at least a week before, to prevent ankle pain and blisters on the main day. Also, remember to carry insoles with you, because they can significantly reduce the pain from wearing your shoes.
- Learn different kinds of rolls: Believe it or not, there are more than one ways of wearing jeans that are too long for you. For instance, rolling them so that the hemline sticks in, is one. Also, there are many ways of rolling your jeans that need not necessarily be boring. Learning different ways to roll your jeans is always a good idea especially if you are wearing boots.
- Check the weather forecast the day before: Imagine that you are wearing a stunning white sundress to a day event, only to have it completely ruined by a sudden spell of rain. That would be unfortunate, wouldn’t it? That is why when planning your outfits for an event, take some time to check the weather predictions for said day, and decide on a practical outfit to suit those weather conditions.
- Use heavy necklaces for daring necklines: Now you no longer need to avoid that one garment in your closet that looks a little too daring. If the neckline is plunging, or if it makes you feel a bit too exposed, a good idea is to wear it with chunky layered necklaces. Not only will this makeup for your accessories, but it will also distract the eye from the neckline.
- Add a belt to a shapeless wear: Some of us are still too reluctant to throw away specific pieces that are a little too big for us. Well, now you can simply go ahead and pair them with a belt along the waist, which will not only add an extra dimension to your overall look, but it will also clinch the waist, making you look thinner, giving an hourglass appearance.
- Carry an emergency kit with you: This means ALL the emergency essentials like band-aids for scraped feet, safety pins for torn clothes, earbuds and even tampons because emergencies never come announced.
