We have all had that feeling where we have seen someone in the street who just exudes confidence and elegance. Everything from their attitude right down to their personal style is on point. They’re just effortlessly themselves – genuinely charming, sophisticated and authentic.
And it’s easy to think that those qualities are just for some people, but with a boost of self-confidence and a style upgrade, you could become that person. Effortless style transforms you into a person who celebrates being themselves every day!
The key to effortless style lies in looking sharp yet minimal. Maximalism is in vogue right now and it’s praised by many, but will it last longer than this season? Probably not! And where will you be then? Back to the drawing board probably! So, plan ahead and choose timeless looks that will always look picture-perfect – no matter what year or season we’re currently in.
1. Identify your style
You may just think you’re someone who isn’t into fashion, but you don’t necessarily need to be a Vogue fanatic to fall in love with your own wardrobe. Creating a wardrobe that suits your daily life and mood is a fun experiment and will allow you to get to know the real you.
If you’re lost for ideas in identifying what your style is, look for a style that inspires you. That can be by flipping through magazines and looking at celebrity style, searching for photos on Pinterest to create a board or even looking through your favorite brands’ websites to see their latest arrivals.
2. Classic styles first, trends later
We love to try out a few trend-led items, but don’t let this take over your entire wardrobe, or you’ll be back to square one next season! Instead, invest in classics – sweaters, shirts, and t-shirts are a must-have for your wardrobe. T-shirts from Fresh Clean Threads are the perfect pieces to invest in, they have styles for every season and each t-shirt is available in must-have shades that will compliment every item in your wardrobe.
Shop classic colors such as neutrals, richer tones such as camel, navy, or forest green, and of course, black and white to bring depth to your wardrobe. These are simple colors, but trust us – they will do the trick! You’ll feel suave and sophisticated in no time at all!
3. Look good, but feel good too
Sure, effortless style is supposed to make you look good, but remember – there is the word “effortless”! This means that the clothes you choose are easy to get on and wear and that you will feel your best in them. You will feel as good as you look!
If your pants are a bit tight, don’t be afraid to size up for more comfort. If a fit of a shirt you like isn’t quite doing it for you, then choose one that will make you feel amazing. The whole point of style is to have fun and be you, and you can’t quite be you if you’re fiddling with your clothing and adjusting things all the time. Remember – the fit matters the most!
4. It’s in the details
Now you’ve got that killer wardrobe, it’s time to take care of it. Little details can go noticed and anything that’s missed can appear a bit scruffy. It’s silly things like ironing shirts and correctly washing your clothing that will make it keep its high quality and come across as polished. Knowing when to let go of damaged clothing will also help you keep a high standard when it comes to your wardrobe.
5. Pick a signature fragrance
With a style, comes a scent, and your signature fragrance will represent your attitude. A scent can bring back memories, or create them, it can also enhance your outfit and your charm. Smelling good, looking good, and feeling good will be the ultimate confidence boost, and make you feel like that guy!
