Best fashion tips of all time that don't require a whole new wardrobe

wardrobe tips

One of the hardest parts of our day is standing in front of our closet trying to figure out what to wear. No matter what our age is we often think to ourselves "I have nothing to wear!"

Despite the fact that all of us have to get dressed each day this daily conundrum doesn't get easier overtime. We decided that enough was enough, so we went to the experts from top designers, fashion editors to style consultants and more, so they could take the mystery out of the art of getting dressed.

So before you run out and buy a whole new wardrobe, scroll down to see how to make your wardrobe work for you.

Dress age-appropriately

Most of the new fashion trends are adaptable for your age group. For example, if this year's trend is wearing a crop top and showing off your navel, this might be suitable if you are twenty years old. But avoid looking like we want to look younger but still stylish, and then wear a longer top under the crop top to avoid showing any skin.

The right-sized bra makes a world of difference

If you wear a bra that fits you correctly, your clothes won't bulge or sag on you. You will actually look slimmer from every angle with the right-sized bra.

If you are unsure if your bras fit you correctly, you can do a quick self-examination: Make sure the front panel of your bra lays flat against your skin (the part between your cups). There is no wrinkling or bunching in the actual cups and you can squeeze two fingers under your bra and still feel comfortable. If your bras do not meet these requirements, then it is time to go bra shopping.

Learn to balance proportions

We need to make our body look like it is in proportion. One of the biggest mistakes women often make is by wearing something baggy over their big hips or chest, causing their body to look out of proportion. For example if you have a pear shape, then wear black pants and bring the focus upwards by throwing on a bright colored scarf.

Have at least one classic white button down shirt

Look for a crisp white button down blouse, and stay away from ivory colored shirts. If you are worried that the whiteness of the shirt will make your teeth look yellow or stained, then wear some bright red lipstick to make your teeth look brighter. There are quite a few styles of button-down shirts such as a darted waistline or curved princess seam, both of which will give you an hourglass figure.

Accentuate with jewelry

Look for jewelry pieces that will accentuate your best features, such as long earrings will make your face look longer and slimmer. If you have an oval-shaped face, then opt for oversized studs. This will make your face look wider and not so narrow. If you have a large chest, avoid wearing necklaces that hit below your cleavage, as it will look awkward and cause unwanted attention to your breasts.

Have fun mixing patterns and prints

Mixing patterns and prints can make your look chic and stylish, plus help you create a whole new wardrobe. The secret lies in sticking to a similar color family and certain patterns always look great together. Try matching polka dots with stripes or stripes with floral prints. Avoid matching the same style of patterns together such as small polka dots with bigger polka dots; this will just give people a headache looking at you.
