We’ve heard the phrases “dress for success” or “dress for the job that you want, not the job you have.”
Dressing up will boost your self-confidence, promote self-respect and give a good impression.
As Coco Chanel’s famous quote goes, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress. Dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”
Now comes the question on how to be effortlessly more stylish with little effort.
Here are KajoMag’s five easy tips on how to dress better instantly without changing your whole wardrobe:
1. Don’t know what to wear? Pick a one-piece outfit.
Ever have one of those days when you just don’t know what to wear? Most professionals advise that we should plan our outfits the night before so that you don’t have to make that decision in the morning. But if you are really stuck and tired of playing the mix and match game, pick a one-piece like a dress or a jumpsuit.
2. Highlight one feature on your face
You don’t need to have professional skills or a suitcase of cosmetics to know how to apply makeup.
First of all you need to pick your favourite facial feature, then start to work some magic on your face.
Put on a bold red lipstick with super light eye makeup or wear a pair of fake lashes while rocking nude lips. Either way, highlight only one feature on your face so that way you won’t spend tonnes of time on makeup and still look polished.
3. Fix your hair
For women, our hair is the crown that we never take off. So no matter how lazy you are in the morning, the least you can do is to simply comb your hair.
There is no need to go full blown salon style on your hair. As long as you tame that frizzy mane, you are good to go.
4. Choose one statement accessory
Even if you outfit is plain and uninteresting, dress better instantly by pairing it with a statement accessory.
Choose a pair of statement earrings or necklace depending on your outfit. Accessories do make you look like you dressed to impress.
5. Wear a pair of covered shoes
Have you heard the saying, “I make shoe contact before eye contact?” Your shoes can be the first thing people notice when they see you.
However, if it is hard to make a choice of which pair of footwear to go with, go for covered shoes. Covered heels will always make you look more professional than a pair of open toed shoes. A pair of white sneakers, for example, definitely looks better with your jeans than flip-flops.
If you don’t believe a pair of shoes can make a difference, just remember Cinderella.
