Some people seem to have a knack for putting together outfits that are stylish and flattering. Not everyone has this gift, however, and many people feel they don’t know how to dress well. Fortunately, dressing well is a skill that can be learned. The following are a few tips for anyone wants to learn more about fashion and how to make the best choices in clothing and accessories.
Study The History Of Fashion
Reading books or watching movies about fashion icons of the past and present, like Coco Chanel and Christian Dior, can offer a broad view of how fashion works in social life and how trends change from season to season and year to year. In addition, fashion history can reveal some principles that remain fairly constant, such as the roles of certain colors and color combinations in a wardrobe.
Follow Fashion Blogs
Another great way to learn about clothing styles is to follow fashion blogs. Fashion bloggers tend to be knowledgeable about fashion trends and passionate about the clothes and jewelry they love and feature in their photos. In addition, they bring a wide variety of perspectives that readers can learn from. There are fashion bloggers from all over the world, and they represent all age groups, shapes, and sizes.
Try Things On
A common mistake many people make is assuming they know how a garment will look before trying it on. Very often, a piece of clothing will look quite different on a real human body than it does on the rack. Trying on unfamiliar and even uncomfortable combinations can sometimes reveal an exciting new look.
Get Advice From Friends
Asking a friend for fashion advice can be tricky because a friend may be reluctant to say something potentially hurtful. However, a friend who can give honest advice can be a great asset in the fitting room. It can be very hard to tell how well a garment or an outfit works after just a few minutes in front of a dressing-room mirror. A helpful friend can also observe how the outfit looks in motion and how well the style flatters the person wearing it.
