For a lot of people clothing means nothing to them but not walking naked through the streets, for others it’s a way to show a little piece of personality to the outside. For some it doesn’t matter if pieces match, for others the combination of clothing is art. And there are some who make money out of it, live it to their heart and compile their lives all around it. Fashion is a huge industry in today’s world and even though some view it as senseless, there are a lot of people out there thinking about fashion all damn day.
Don’t get me wrong here – it doesn’t matter how you dress, how you style yourself and how you appear on the outside. Everyone is different and everyone likes different things, for some art is a Picasso painting, for others it’s Tattoos, and for others it’s fashion. So, please, no judging here.
Anyway, I guess people who like to dress well and aim for having that sixth sense for fashion and style, that vision for what goes together and what is appealing to the eye, sometimes wish they could dress just as fancy and stylish as Fashion Bloggers or Designers. And I totally get that! It takes a good amount of selflove, self esteem, strenght and courage to go all crazy with your outfit just like a Fashion Blogger does. But if you’re ready for that, here’s a guide to how to dress like a fashion blogger and show it off without looking like a total weirdo!
What’s comfortable and practical in fall and winter is also something inevitable when it comes to fashion. Layering. Combining different pieces doesn’t just come in handy when you feel warm and want to get rid of one layer but also creates some texture and adds interest to your outfit.
Oversized is the new perfect fit
It’s always good to have certain pieces that fit you exactly, like your favourite pair of blue jeans. But a precise fit isn’t for everything. Playing around with oversized pieces – sweaters, jackets, t-shirts – will definitely earn you some admirable looks.
All about accessories
Good clothing isn’t everything. Especially when you don’t go overboard with your outfit it’s the perfect opportunity to do so with your accessories. A good balance is key. If you already layered some pieces, maybe put on an oversized hoodie on top and went crazy with colour and texture keep it simple with a filigree necklace and a ring maybe. If you’re outfit’s as simple as a pair of blue jeans and a white top don’t be shy to add some more necklaces, a belt and maybe even a hat. But don’t overdo it.
Mix & Match
As well as it goes for layering, also mixing different styles and textures can help to create some interest in your outfit. Mix oversized with cropped, denim with silk, rough with soft. As with everything – don’t go overboard. Keep it simple and add one more extravagant piece and you’re good to go.
Rules were made for breaking them!
If you want to pull off a good look, don’t be afraid of rules. Step out of your comfort zone and break those common fashion rules. That’s exactly what makes models, fashion bloggers and designers so interesting and outstanding.
All eyes on the details
It’s always good to look at the whole thing and see if it looks good, but sometimes it’s the little things that matter and that make the whole look seem so flawless. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye on some details. Fold up your jeans, roll up your sleeves, add your watch on top of a sweater, stuff your shirt into your jeans, show your belt. Whatever it is, make sure you have a special detail that completes your look.
When shooting an outfit try to keep it as simple and natural as possible. Make it seem as if you didn’t even notice someone took a photo of you. Avoid eye contact with the camera, move around, walk, pull out your phone, grab in your bag,… This makes the photos look really natural and not as if you purposely posed for the camera – and that’s what attract people.
Colour match & 3rd pieces
Matching colours and keeping it in one shade is very appealing and makes your look seem put together. Also adding a 3rd piece to your outfit will make you immediately look like a fashion pro. Check out this post if you’re interesting in how you can achieve that!
The last thing, which is also one of the most important ones is – be confident! Don’t be scared of what people might think of you, you look gorgous! And no matter what you’re wearing – if you don’t feel confident, nobody is going to notice you and you’re not goingt to feel good. Even if you’re wearing the newest chanel bag! So keep in mind: Confidence is key. After that, everything’s going to work on it’s own.
