Did you know the fashion industry contributes to 2% of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP)?
It’s easy to see why, since people today are more careful about what they wear. Nobody wants to look basic when they can look extravagant.
If you’re reading this, we’re guessing you also don’t want to get lost in the crowd. Lucky for you, we have some fashion tips that’ll have everyone’s eyes on you at your next event.
Curious what they are? Read on as we give you surefire tips to help you make a fashion statement.
Choose Bold Colors
Black shouldn’t be your only choice if you’re attending an event. In fact, it shouldn’t even be among your top picks since it’s too muted to stand out.
Instead of dull-colored clothing, go for bold colors like red, blue, pink, and yellow. They’ll brighten your mood and pop out of the crowd, giving you the attention you need.
But, we understand how daunting going bold can be for someone used to dull-colored clothes. Luckily, clothes aren’t the only bold things you can wear. You can rock muted tones and add pops of color to your outfit using a scarf or handbag.
Nothing makes a fashion statement like choosing the right accessories. When we say accessories, we mean everything from jewelry to the hat you’ve been hiding at the back of your closet.
The easiest way to accessorize is to wear jewelry that stands out. Something as simple as a gold butterfly ring can bring your whole outfit together.
Or, you can always buy a watch, necklace permanent bracelet, sustainable shoes or bangle. Either choice is excellent, as long as it’s finely crafted, elegant, and bold.
Consider adding a hat to your outfit if you’re attending an outdoorsy event. Of course, ensure the hat matches your chosen clothes for the day. You don’t want to draw attention to yourself by wearing the wrong clothing or accessories.
We know what you’re thinking — isn’t there a rule about mixing prints? Well, there was, but this rule no longer applies.
When done right, mixing prints will get you all the right attention. You can mix animal prints, floral patterns, stripes, or polka dots.
Of course, pulling this off can be tricky, so you need to be careful. It’s best to mix two prints instead of combining all of them.
If unsure about how to mix prints, start small. You can wear a striped shirt, plain trousers, and a floral scarf if you’re attending a casual event.
Wear Statement Pieces
Wear something you’d never wear on a typical day to your next event. Statement pieces include everything from multicolored shoes to pants from Vibe Clothing Company with flared legs.
This is the time to bring what you see on the runway to life. Wear the puffy-sleeved shirt or the dress with a huge bow you’ve been hiding.
Of course, as with prints, you’ll need to be careful with statement pieces. Don’t overdo them to avoid sticking out like a sore thumb.
Nobody tells you this, but smelling nice is a significant part of men’s and women’s fashion. Buy that Chanel or Tom Ford perfume you’ve been eyeing to bring your look together.
Use These Simple Tips to Make a Fashion Statement
As you’ve seen, you don’t have to break the bank to make a fashion statement at your next event. Simple things like choosing bold colors and accessories can make you stand out. Don’t be basic when you can be extraordinary.
