Have you ever noticed what others are wearing? Of course you have. You aren’t the first person to look at others’ clothes, and you aren’t the last. But that means, of course, that people are looking at what you have on. Doesn’t that make you want to dress better? Here are some tips to show you how.
If you wear stockings, keep a small bottle of clear nail polish with you. If you get a snag or run, a small drop of the polish will help stop it before it gets bad. Remember that it only takes a small amount to work so, do not overdo it, or you will have a sticky mess.
Do not use sponges to apply your liquid and cream based foundations and blushes. You will lose product in the sponge every time you do. Additionally, the sponge becomes a breeding ground for germs. Instead, use clean fingertips for application, switching fingers or cleaning them between different products or colors.
Never leave home without lotion! When you’re out and about, your hands can suffer the effects of a drying world. Regular hand-washing alone can wreak havoc on both your hands and your cuticles. Your best defense is to always carry a small bottle of lotion in your handbag. That way, you can always put your best hand forward.
For a simple way to look more stylish, swap out your cheap rubber flip-flops for a pair of strappy sandals in leather, patent, or another eye-catching, grown-up material. Your feet will still be comfortable, but you will instantly look more put-together and polished. Look for embellished styles with beads, embroidery or funky hardware.
Try a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner if you struggle with frizz. This will put a protective layer over the cuticle of your hair, keeping it from taking in too much moisture. Avoid products which create volume; this includes products containing wheat or rice.
If you have a few extra pounds on your frame, avoid horizontal stripes. This pattern tends to make you look wider. Vertical or linear patterns on the other hand play down width and emphasize height.
Add your personality to your style. You can aim to not match on purpose and wear shoes that don’t match your outfit. You can make a fashion statement with a less than perfect look when you use a bit of chaos to stand out from the crowd.
Always break in a new pair of shoes before a special occasion or a long awaited vacation trip. There is nothing worse than finding that a new pair of shoes pinches or rubs when you are in the middle of a wedding reception or walking on a guided tour of a fabulous new city.
Many men do not understand how long a tie should be. Many wear ones that sit too high or too short. Too avoid this horrible fashion mix up, you should try to make sure that the tip of your tie comes to your belt line. This is the best way to avoid ruining your look.
When you get a haircut, keep your face shape in mind. Certain face shapes look better with certain hairstyles. Oval faces look great with nearly any hairstyle, while round faces do better with hairstyles that have height. Pear faces look better with round cuts and triangular faces look better with short cuts. Square faces look great with all kinds of cuts, except those that are flat on top.
When you are looking for a new piece of clothing, think carefully about what you already have. Buying something that doesn’t match what you have in your closet is how some people end up with a closet full of things they never wear. Make sure any new piece fits in with your overall wardrobe.
When you purchase sunglasses, look for frames that will coordinate with your summer clothing. You should really need only one or two pairs to get you through the entire season. You can use other accessories to draw attention to yourself, or a particular area. Multiple pairs of shades are unnecessary, and expensive.
An hourglass figure looks sexy on all women. Even though society makes us believe that the extremely thin women are the sexiest, this is far from the truth. Men love women with an hourglass figure. Always wear clothing that complements your curves. If you do not have curves, fake it by wearing a high-waisted skirt or a stylish belt.
When hemming your pants, take the height of your shoes into account. The hem of your pants should always be half to three fourths of an inch off the floor. Keep two lengths of pants. Have pants that you can wear heels with and ones you can wear with flat shoes.
