These 7 tips will be a gamechanger for your closet and outfit ideas.
How often do you stop and plan your outfits around a colour palette? We’ve all woke up and ended up putting on two clashing colours. Instead of choosing your outfit around specific pieces, shift your focus to choosing two or three colours to form the colour palette for your outfit. Once you’ve got your colours, use them to help you pick the right clothes and accessories to create your outfit. You can even incorporate the hues into your makeup routine.
It’s a good idea to choose colours that naturally flatter your complexion and features. You can incorporate signature colours like blue and lavender, or choose a more minimalistic colour palette of neutral and earth-tone shades.
Get some texture into your look by mixing and matching different fabrics to give you an elevated and effortlessly chic look. You’re guaranteed to have more than one texture in your closet. You can style a ribbed knitted sweater with denim jeans and leather boots or contrast a silk blouse with suede shoes.
Textures help to add definition to your outfit, giving you an instantly elevated look. You can keep your textures all within the same colour family for a subtle look or go all out by incorporating bold colours to emphasise the different textures.
Everyone has a signature colour that reflects their personality. Whether you’re Elle Woods with a hint of pink or prefer to wear emerald green, you can never go wrong by adding a pop of colour to your outfit. People often assume that there are rules for wearing colour. In reality, you can mix and match any hues that catch your eye.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with pastels, neutrals, and neon hues in one outfit to help you stand out from the crowd.
Channel your inner Blair Waldorf with a matching set. This outfit screams Parisian chic and is both timeless while feeling contemporary and in-trend all at once. You can invest in a coordinating two-piece from your favourite brand or buy a budget-friendly option from a high-street store. While a skirt suit is the classic option, you can experiment with a pantsuit or a knit set for a fun twist.
Once you have your matching set, choose your accessories and footwear to go with them. You’ll usually want your matching set to take centre stage, incorporating the main colours into your accessories.
In the last 18 months, fashion trends have turned on their head and become more casual and laidback than ever before. If you want to achieve the ‘high low’ look of blending athleisure with workwear, a blazer and graphic tee is the easiest way to re-create the look. It’s both laidback and dressed up at once, meaning it works for anywhere you’re going to.
When in doubt, go monochrome. If you’re looking for an easy fashionable look, choose one hue to create your outfit around and stick to it. You’ll want to avoid choosing a hue that matches your hair, but you want one that does complement your skin tone and complexion.
A monochrome outfit makes getting dressed even easier and helps you to narrow down your outfit choices by keeping your look in one colour from head-to-toe. You can keep your monochrome shade neutral or go for a pop of colour to stand out.
Your jacket isn’t a jacket, it’s a cape. If you look back at photos of Old Hollywood stars like Maria Callas, Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor, you’ll notice one thing in common. They always wore their jackets over their shoulders. It’s an effortlessly chic look that helps to keep you arm while adding an elevated feel to your outfit. It’s perfect for layering over dresses or as a transitional styling tip as the temperatures start to drop.
Refreshing your wardrobe every season can be expensive. More of us than ever are choosing to build capsule wardrobes and take a vow of minimalism. Unless you’ve got the budget of a Hadid or a Kardashian, it’s unlikely you can buy into every fashion trend. Thankfully, trends are like boomerangs that eventually come back around.

We’re rounding up a few of our favorite fashion trends from TikTok that everyone is obsessed with.
We’re all becoming more aware of the damage that the fast industry is going to our environment.

It’s a way of making any outfit look instantly chic and it’s a styling tip that you can use any time of the year. It’s a bold statement, especially if you decide to go with a vibrant colour like red or fuchsia pink. The tonal dress is effortless glamour and sophistication, making even your gym gear look more elevated. We’ve rounded up our tips for dressing in one colour in this handy guide to help you master the trend.
