What To Do When You Don’t Understand Fashion

You’re new to this ‘trend’ thing. You don’t know how all this works. You didn’t even know ‘colors‘ changed every season. But now, you realise the error of your ways. You want to fix your negligence. However, you don’t know where to start. I accept it can be overwhelming. What’s a girl to do?

1. Start by reading a fashion glossary. Or two. Or maybe three. Honestly, this will help you more than you think. So the next time you read a description of maybe a houndstooth peplum dress with an scalloped hemline and scoop neck, you might just be able to visualise it.

2. Keep yourself updated on what’s in. It may be confusing at first, but you’ll get the hang of it soon enough. And then you’ll be able to figure out what works for you and what doesn’t. You might be able to pull off the classic look, or maybe you’re more of a bohemian girl – but you’ll never know till you try.

3. Buy shoes. Good shoes. Different types of shoes. Wedge heels. Handpainted shoes. Stilettoes. Ballerinas. Pumps. Sandals. Flats. Bottom line – buy many shoes.

5. Make sure you have fashion essentials. These will definitely help glam up your look, and it will ensure you look like you know everything there is to know about fashion, even when you’re only starting out. Blazers, LBDs, oversize sunglasses, well styled hair, and beautiful bags. These are some things that can take any outfit a long way.

6. Get your fashion cheat sheet. This will come to your rescue on those days when you think you have nothing to wear, or you’re just really at a loss. Because sometimes, less is more. You can look pretty even without layering or a lot of accessorizing.

Remember that rule too: Look into a full length mirror before leaving the house, and remove atleast one thing, be it an accessory, or a layer of clothing. It’s a thin line from well dressed to overdressed and we don’t want to cross it now, do we?
