If you want to develop a better sense of style, you need to add interest to your look. Adding interest to your look can be as simple as layering items, but it makes a huge difference. These tips will help you to create a better overall look when dressing yourself:
Add a Pop of Color
Contrasting colors can make a huge impact when worn in an outfit. If you’re unsure of which colors to use, a color wheel can be particularly helpful. It’ll show you the colors that match and contrast perfectly, so you can make a really interesting look. You can add the pop of color with your nails, your accessories, or makeup. If you’re wearing an all white or all black outfit, this can look particularly good too!
Accessorize carefully. Make sure each accessory you wear adds value to your look in some way. I like to use my accessories to create drama; I make sure they have something unique and interesting about them. I even like to use one big statement piece sometimes. You can wear jewelry in certain ear piercings that I think look great, like ear cuffs! Even things like collar brooches look awesome.
Focus on the Smaller Details
The small details really do make a big difference. You don’t have to make it all about statement accessories. You can add interest to your look right down to the socks you decide to wear. People really do notice these things, and they’ll make all the difference.
Use Pattern and Texture
Pattern and texture will add more depth to your look. You can mix different patterns and it’s actually really easy to do. You can use different sizes of the same pattern, or different patterns in the same color family. Using a few different textures should be standard for any outfit you wear. If you’re not used to wearing patterns, start small by wearing them on your bag or shoes. You can then branch out and wear patterns on your coats, or something like a scarf.
Play With Different Shapes and Cuts
Different shapes can make you look amazing. Pay attention to the cut of your clothing if you want it to flatter your body in the best way possible. You can also add interest by wearing asymmetrical clothing and other items with an unusual shape. Don’t forget, your look should be balanced. You don’t want the clothing to drown you, nor do you want it to be too tight. It needs to be balanced just right to look great. Wear something tighter on top and looser on bottom, or the other way around.
I hope you love these tips and they help you to add lots of interest to your outfits. No outfit you wear should look boring, so make sure you think of different ways to add depth.
