10 Ways to Always Look Fabulous

{by Brittany Sadler}

1) Know that light colors draw attention and dark colors camouflage
          So if there is something you want to emphasize, wear a light color, to de-emphasize, wear dark. Simple, but oh so effective.

2) Look in the mirror. And then turn around and look again.
This can save you a lot of embarrassment. Like having a run up the back of your tights.

3) If you find a piece of clothing that you love, buy it in every color. I mean it.
You will be so glad you did. If you love something and it looks fantastic, you will wear it all the time and you will want it in several colors.

4) Don’t be afraid to have a signature look.
If there is a certain outfit or style that you consistently feel amazing in, don’t worry about wearing it too often. You don’t have to have a different look for every day, a signature outfit is a great way to make a statement. Obviously, you don’t want to be the girl who literally wears the exact same thing everyday though. All things in moderation :)

5) Just because you like how something looks on the manikin doesn’t mean you’ll like how it looks on you.
When you’re shopping, try it on! I know it’s a pain to go back to the dressing room, but believe me; the results will be worth it.

6) Black is always chic.
If you don’t know what to wear, black or black and white is always; I repeat, always, a good choice. Or if you don’t like black, gray or khaki is fine too.

7) Too simple is better than too complicated
            It is better to have a very simple outfit than one that is overburdened with scarves, necklaces, and accessories.

8) Don’t try too hard
Nothing is worse than looking like you spent all day in front of the mirror. Except maybe looking like you don’t own a mirror.  Just remember that although it is always chic to look like you care, it’s never chic to look like you care that much. The best style is effortless. Or at least gives that impression.        

9) Never listen to any article that says you can’t wear something because of your body type.
These are often good ideas, but never set in stone. You can always find a way to wear what you love (and have it look fabulous!). Be creative.

10) Rules make great servants, but terrible masters
Don’t feel like you have to follow every rule, sometimes the best looks are rule-breakers. After all, that’s how Coco Chanel got started :)
