The one aim (apart from being fashion forward) that most of us have when putting together an outfit is to look presentable. If you thought dressing up is just to treat the eyes, well we’ll tell you that it also plays a huge impact on one’s mood. Which is why it is important to be dressed to the nines at all times. That said, we all experience those dreaded days when there’s either no time or motivation (or both) to look polished. On days like these when you don’t feel like putting in too much effort, you end up looking shabbily and turn up to your destination. Keeping this in mind, Team WODROB has brought to you a few tips on how you can look effortlessly chic and stand out in a crowd. Read on to find out how!
Always accessorise according to your persona
Accessorising an outfit can instantly amp a look from drab to fab. You can choose an accessory that can add to your signature style… for instance, a hat. Hats can make any boring outfit look cooler. A bag is another such accessory, so are bandanas tied around your neck like a neckerchief, headscarves, bow-tie or statement jewellery. You can completely personalise your look with an accessory of your choice and see how it immediately transforms your mundane look.
Mix and match already existing pieces
Create a contrast in your outfit by blending in different pieces. For starters, go tad desi with your look if you’re always sporting western wear. With such a rich styles and elegant silhouettes, one can draw enough much inspiration and play with their looks! Try pairing a gorgeous pair of floral juttis with straight-fit trousers and a solid coloured top. Or sport a phulkari dupatta over your little black dress and cinch your waist over the dupatta and the dress with a thin belt. One outfit can work in so many ways with this simple trick.
Layer as and when you can
Whoever tells you that layers are meant only for fall is completely wrong! Layering doesn’t only mean wearing a number of thick sweaters and trenchcoats. You can achieve a layered look with lightweight outfits too and don it stylishly during summers. Work with different textures and patterns to add depth to your look. Add a light summery scarf over your basic tee and jeans combo. You can also wear a light sleeveless longline vest over a feminine blouse and a pair of pants.
