Style Quick Fixes (Men and Women)

Sometimes style is not about doing so much, there are little things you could fix that adds up to one big difference.

Here are some things to focus on when it comes to your style.

The, arguably, most important thing to take into consideration when picking out outfits is the fit. Fit makes an outfit look expensive and better for you.

Less is more
One mistake people make is to put everything together because they are trying to be more stylish, but the truth is, when it comes to style, less is more. Avoid the habit of throwing on everything- big watches, chunky necklaces, bold colours – all at once.

Pay attention to accessories
For men this could be a watch, sunglasses or bracelets; for women, it could be an earring, necklace or handbag, whichever it is, focus on making them complementary to the clothes and not pulling focus.

Ask for opinions when buying new clothes
Most times out of exciting for a new product people rush into buying things they don’t really need or things that might not necessarily look good on them. TO avoid this, seek the advice of people around you.

Disregard trends
Trends are not necessarily to be followed because they come and go within months. If you can, try to keep to your style and avoid changing your whole style just because there’s a new style in vogue.
