Fashion Trends come and go but style is eternal. Every season we are bombarded with the new trends, the colors that are in, the boho look, the rock look, the alternative look, rock glam, retro and it goes on and on. I love fashion but my passion is style. After 10 active years of working in fashion, I can tell you with confidence that the things you need to do in order not to get lost in the fashion world are the following:
First of all, make sure you have black and white in your closet. These colors are always in, no matter what the fashion trend is, they go with all the styles and are in ALL year long. Yes! Black is also in, in the summer and not a lot of people know that. But trust me, black in the summer rocks! The same goes for white in winter. So, must-haves in your closet are: Black and white tops, basic t-shirts and shirts. A pair of black jeans, black trousers and of course the black dress. Black and white (or off white) coats or jackets or both. Black boots, biker booties, high heels, total black or total white trainers, or just in black the kind of shoes you wear the most that support your style and look. Don’t forget that you can play with the shades of black and white. Vintage black, destroyed black-looks like dark grey- blue black, off white and ecru.
Another very important tip is to know what you feel comfortable in. Open your closet and choose the clothes that when you wear them, you feel beautiful and you know you look good in them even without looking in the mirror. Those clothes are the ones that should be your “canvas”. Those clothes show your style identity. Embrace it and then you can work on your images by complementing them with pieces from every season’s trends. You can add colors you like, play with accessories, hats, shoes, coats, jewelery, shoes. You can wear the same outfit in so many different ways if you mix and match it with various accessories and shoes and you will always be you and in style.
Last but not least, always remember that simplicity is stylish and less is more.
