Staying Ahead In Fashion (And Not Going Broke)

Whether you’re all about the Haute Couture runways of Paris or Milan or if Urban Gothic Chic is how you roll, the possibilities of self-expression in today’s fashion-conscious world have given the aspiring fashionista a million possibilities to stand out in the crowd.

You’re fashion-forward and you know it.  You are never content to be a follower and trend-setting isn’t what you do, it’s who you are.  So, how do you stay ahead of the game?

It may sound as if it’s something you’ve heard a thousand times before and honestly, it’s because you have but it is as true now as it’s ever been - the only change.  Recognizing this and seeing it in your environment is what’s going to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening around you in the world of the effortlessly stylish.

But to truly craft a brand that’s all about you and that isn’t on the shelf of every main street store, you’re going to have to put in a little effort -and it’s easier than you think.

We start with keeping it authentic.

Personal style is exactly as the name suggests and while you want to take advantage of the best trends around you, you still inevitably want to show nichè ensembles that while emulating the cutting edge of design and style remains inherently “you”. The trick is to keep the staple of what you know works for you and what you look good wearing and to then take one item and seriously push the limits with it.  Accessories are your best friend when it comes to doing this.  Think scarves by Hermès or Calvin Klein brought together with your favourite jeans and jackets.

Every girl loves a gorgeous gown but if Balenciaga is out of your reach, create an instant high-fashion effect by drawing focus from your inexpensive gown by investing in one fabulously stylish accessory.  Earrings, necklaces, bracelets and bags can all be used to dazzling effect.

If you’re more street smart than boulevard chic, then you can use additional elements to bring about your look.  Brightly coloured hair dye in different colours, full-length lace-up boots or piercings will all credibly establish your individuality, but if you’re going to be putting metal into different parts of your body, get some advice first by reading this blog post.

When thinking of ways to make these ideas happen, it’s going to be very easy to spend a lot of money - and that’s fine if you have it, but shopping local and combining main street store fashion with a few uptown acquisitions can give you a unique and fresh perspective on choice and create a style that’s all your own, outside of the crowd.

At the end of the day, it’s all about how your sense of style invigorates your self-image and how it makes you feel, the sexiest woman - is the one who believes in herself the most, no matter what she’s wearing.

Feeling confident and looking great is more than just what you put on your body, so remember to take care of your skin as well.
