4. Keep it classic and clean: Keeping your wardrobe fashion clean and classy is an idea that works well in every situation. The appeal that a classic look brings is never out of style. When you are just at the foundation to upgrade your wardrobe then it is wise to build it from clean and classic style. This is the nothing but sticking to neutral and solid colours for trousers, shirts and shoes while for suits navy, charcoal or black is all rounder for you. A simpler tie or one with splash of colour can be a place for experiments.
5. Be bold to break the rules: Fashion is the only place where you are praised when you break rules. There is no limit to what you can experiment with your dressing style. You can easily perplex yourself with when you think about style dos and don’ts. You should keep in mind that style is all about creativity and expression and breaking from the box of set rules. When you have to decide on should and shouldn’t wear then it is better to use common sense rather than hanging up with it. It is now the trend of adventurous dressing rather than getting stuck into the daily boring black & white dressing. Such dressing is also required sometimes but that doesn’t mean that you would remain scared of experimenting with style.
6. Wear it, own it: This is one of the most potent tips on upgrading your wardrobe. Whatever you wear does only make sense when you own the clothes that you wear. Until and unless you wear the dress with full confidence and carry it in a way as if you are the only fit person for it and the dress is just made for you, you are not going to look good in it. Automatically when you own the dress you wear you would find people gravitate towards you and respect you from within. Your dressing style would speak the last word for you.
7. Find someone who has a cool style quotient: When you are all set to upgrade your wardrobe for you, you must be sure to have to follow an idol in respect of fashion. In everybody’s life there is one who carries a dream style for you. You start paying attention to the trend your idol carries and become a trend follower automatically.
8. Explore slim fits: Your look is going to change dramatically as you make changes to the dress you wear. Large size dress is out of market and slimmer dress is in. You should keep in mind that slim fit is different from skin fit as well.
9. Plan the perfect wardrobe matching your lifestyle: Start investing on those items which are quality pieces and you would use more often. You should not crowd your wardrobe with stuff that you would never need or wear. Your wardrobe should be the reflection of your lifestyle.
