6 Outfit Tips

Today I wanted to share with you a few tips that I always keep in mind when putting together an outfit. I don't ALWAYS follow these tips, but definitely try to keep them in mind. These are just a few that I've always found helpful so if they don't work for you that's completely up to you. Enjoy!

1. In order to keep a little bit of proportion in your outfit, make sure to pair tight bottoms with a loose top or loose bottoms with a tighter top. You don't want to be wearing a baggy outfit, but you also don't want to wear a completely tight outfit. There are rare occasions that it works out, but for the most part it's good to remember proportions.

2. Add Color. You should usually mix it up in your outfit. You don't normally want all neutrals or all brights. adding a little bit of brights to your neutrals (or pastels) or neutrals to your brights always works out great.

3. You've probably heard before that you should always match your belt with your shoes. I usually try to follow by that, because I always feel like something's off or my outfit isn't right if I don't. It's usually a good thing to always keep in mind.

4. Dress it up. It's a good idea to dress up your outfits a little if they seem sorta plain. There are so many accessory ideas out there, your choices are pretty much unlimited.

5. Mix it up. Don't don't be too matchy all the time. You don't always have to follow the rules. Try to mix up some patterns, if you're brave enough. There's no reason we should always keep it plain a simple!

6. This is sorta cheesy, but I believe what completes a great outfit it a great smile. I need to be reminded of this so often!
