Try reading all top lifestyle and fashion magazines, and collect pointers about stuff that look good on you. Only a true blue fashion lover knows how much it pains to reject clothes, which are no longer a rage this season. The money that they will have to spend to attain fresh fashion, keep them tossing and turning in bed, before the fashion season. But not anymore! You need not necessarily spend thousands to look the part. A quick makeover can also give you the pizzazz you need this summer. It is time to bid adieu to the old you and say “hello” to a revamped version of yourself.
Starting at the top: Hairstyle
You can take some pointers from high school or college students in fashion related matters. They are the best minds when it comes to striking makeovers. Students do not have enough cash to opt for complete wardrobe change after every fall-summer. So, the best alternative is to come up with new styles with what you have. Since prehistoric days, hair played a vital role in accentuating the beauty of any man or woman. A subtle alteration in your hairstyle can bring a massive change in your looks. For example half up curls paired up with textured saree have always struck a classic look. An appropriate haircut can take off many years from your face within minutes. Do not throw away your clothes. It is time to welcome the summers with a new and fresh hairdo. A sleek haircut will jazz up your style. Go for shorter hairstyles. It will keep you fresh and comfortable during the hot days. Coloring your hair will add the much-needed fun element to your look. Even a slight change in the parting can give a new frame to your face. Imagine what a full hairstyling session can do?!
Step out of your makeup comfort zone
Office suits – Flat! Jeans and shirt – Flat! Snazzy party numbers – Still Flat! If every outfit is failing to impress you lately, then it is time to opt for a makeover. A makeup makeover! You need not have tons of makeup, sitting on your vanity. If you have the essential items, you will be able to achieve any look possible. This summer, bring some freshness by adding color and grace to your makeup routine. Step up your game by mixing neutral and bold eye-shadows, colorful winged eyeliners, and blushed cheeks. It is mandatory to come out of your comfort zone to discover what a makeup makeover has to offer. Once you change your makeup, last year’s boring jeans and T-shirt combo will compel onlookers to take note when you step out.
Make sure to stock up on basics
It will be unjust to talk about makeovers and not mention anything about clothes. Fashion consciousness among people has gone up drastically. They are aware of hot trends. But there are some cuts, colors, and materials, which are always “in fashion.” Due to their versatility, fashion experts call these “fashion essentials.” Black shirt, pencil skirts, well-tailored trousers, blue jeans – white shirt combo, bold colors, and sequenced dresses are such essential clothes. No matter when you decide to go on a makeover spree, you will be able to create impressive looks with these pieces. Make sure to keep an excellent collection of belts, boots, pumps, and flats in your collection to go with these clothes. If you are feeling extra flirty, a pair of red high heels and statement earrings will never seem out of place.
Get the right fit!
Keeping a Gucci dress in your wardrobe is meaningless if it does not fit you. An ill-fitting dress or pant looks very unflattering. A makeover session is a right time to pick out the outfits, which are too tight or too lose for you. Lose garments make one look fatter, while too fitted clothes will accentuate wrong curves. Don’t get too hung up on your size as it tends to change from one label to another. Declutter your wardrobe at regular intervals. Wear all outfits you possess, and see whether you like yourself in these. Even better! Ask your friend to rate you on a scale of one to five. Anything that is less than 2.5 goes into the “donate” box.
Learn a thing or two about correct posture
Your makeover session does not end with your wardrobe, makeup, shoes, and accessories. You must educate yourself about the trends, and how to carry it off. Knowing your body, and which style complements it is a must. But picking the right dresses is not enough. Each garment demands a befitting posture. If you fail to nail the correct posture, you will not look the part. So, take tips from experts, and get ready to rock your new and improved look this summer.
The best thing about style is you can customize it according to your taste. Do not depend too much on fashion shows and magazines. Most styles, showcased there are not street friendly. You can always draw inspiration from those, and give your wardrobe and style statement a makeover. Fashion includes a lot more than only your clothes. Feel free to explore your options. Do not shy away from experimenting with your clothes, hair, and makeup. You will know which ensembles work and which fall flat. This summer, say goodbye to spending thousands on purchasing clothes. Little tweaks can make a significant difference, which money cannot buy.
