THE BEST FASHION ADVICE YOU’LL EVER GET

When it comes to fashion, it sometimes seems like everyone has THE ultimate tip that will change your life, but the truth is… with so much advice, you often just end up more confused! With that in mind, we really tried to think about the best tips we’ve ever heard in our career. When you want to fix your car, you probably don’t ask the florist. Well, the same applies to your look. Listen to the pros! ;)


1- SHOW SKIN STRATEGICALLY

A little bit of mystery is attractive because humans are naturally curious. Don't give people too many things to look at all at once! Choose one body part and show it off. For example, if you're wearing a low-cut dress, focus on the cleavage; you don't need to also show your thighs and arms.

2- THE RIGHT BRA MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

The right bra will give you confidence, and there’s nothing like feeling good to look amazing! If you're wearing a bra that fits properly, there will be no sagging or bulging. You've found your perfect match when the front centre panel of the bra lays flat and there’s no gaping in the cups. Also, pay attention to the fabric and style of your bra. Wearing one of those unforgiving tissue-thin tees? Go for a t-shirt bra! Wearing a bustier dress? Go for a strapless bra. Nude bra doesn’t mean invisible!

3- BALANCE PROPORTIONS

Very few people can pull off head-to-toe baggy. Mixing tight-fitting and loose-fitting clothing is much more flattering. A loose top combined with a fitted bottom is a good option to balance A shape bodies. Indeed, the top will add volume upwards so that it’s more proportional to the lower body. Conversely, a fitted top with a loose bottom is a good option to balance a V-shape. The bottom will add volume to the buttocks and thighs to make them more proportional to the upper body!

4- DON’T BE TOO MATCHY MATCHY

Outfits that match too much are a no-no. Instead, wear colours that enhance one another! A colour wheel is the perfect reference tool to mix colours like a pro! For a punchy effect, choose complementary colours (two opposite colours on the colour wheel). For a little less intensity, you can also choose similar shades or analogous colours (colours that sit next to each other on the wheel). For a balanced look composed of three colours, use the triad technique. This colour scheme in which three colours are equally spaced from each other creates harmonious results every time!

5- MASTER MENSWEAR

The boyish look is nothing new. Indeed, this style, were boyish elements are integrated into a feminine look, was worn by many popular actresses during the ‘30s. The fight against gender stereotypes is far from over, and the evolution of the boyish look clearly shows it. Pleated pants, boyfriend jeans, a loose fit blazer, the choice is yours. Simply balance it out with lipstick and/or heels!

6- SPEND MORE ON STAPLES

When buying classics, it's important to invest in quality fabrics that will hold up better over time. Basics are the foundation of your wardrobe. These key pieces will help you create gorgeous outfits because they’re super easy to match with trendy (and cheaper) pieces. And when it comes to basics, you can splurge a little more since they’ll never go out of style!

8- MIX PRINTS AND PATTERNS

Combining patterns takes a bit of practice, but there are some easy tricks that will help you to get it right:

1. Marry delicate patterns with bolder ones. Mixing a large-scale pattern with a smaller one looks more put together!

2. Mixing prints in the same tonal range is so much easier!

You see? Easy peasy!

9- CHOOSE YOUR JEWELRY WISELY

Nice jewelry always adds a little something to your outfits, but did you know it could also accentuate your features? Yes! Indeed, if you have big breasts, you should look for a necklace that’s not too long (hit an inch above the cleavage or higher). The right pair of earrings will also flatter you’re the shape of your face. If you have a round face, long earrings will make it look more slender. On the contrary, if you have an oval face, short chunky earrings will make it look less narrow!

10 - FIND YOUR SIGNATURE LOOK

Here, we’re not trying to say that you should wear the same clothes on repeat. But developing a signature look is a great way to build a more functional wardrobe and to know yourself better. One way to find your signature style is to imagine yourself as a cartoon. What would be your one and only look? When people think of you, what do you want them to see? Once you’ve figured it out, you don’t have to stick to it. Your look can be super specific or just a guideline that can include many items and styles!
