Fashion and style doesn’t revolve around brand names or how much you spent on a pair of jeans, yes we all love to throw in a label here and there just to make people do a double take, but that is never a reflection on your personal style or the quick fixes for those days when nothing seems to fit you right, (believe me, I’ve been there). As long as you have these ten commandments of style in your wardrobe everyday will be easy breezy go!
- CHUNKY HEEL NOT CHUNKY CHEESE
Nothing instantly and effortlessly updates an outfit quicker than a fabulous pair of heels, ands this season’s trend focuses on chunky heels which gives your outfit an instant retro look and did I mention they are more comfortable than stilettos?
- BACK TO BASICS
Invest in the basics, they will serve you well for years to come. A plain grey tee can be dressed down with harem pants and gladiators and if you don’t have time to change on a spontaneous night own? Pull on some ripped jeans and pile on the statement jewellery. Can someone say effortless?
- BLAZE IT OUT
Blazers are very versatile as they can be worn to work, for a drink or a serious session of gossip and dinner with the girls. Give your wardrobe an updated look with power shoulder blazers as they give the illusion of smaller hips and a well rounded bum.
- HELLO SAILOR!
Nautical, nautical, nautical. Every wardrobe needs a dose of stripes, think outside the box by pairing stripes with neon coloured accessories for a stand out look.
- PRINTS, PRINTS AND MORE PRINTS.
We all love floral dresses and in fact they are the “go-to” fashion choice for summer, but why play by the rules when you can rock an Ankara frock. Prints are in style, and no one said they had to be floral.
- THE FREAKUM DRESS REPLACES THE LBD
The little black dress is versatile and can be worn in a multitude of ways, but it doesn’t stop the show quite like the freakum dress. Every lady worth her two cents should have a freakum dress tucked neatly in her wardrobe, cause when you’re ready to turn on your sexy vibe, it had better be 100%.
- ITS ALL IN THE PANTS
A pair of pants can either ruin your whole day or make it a fabulous one. It is important to really pay attention to the fitting of your jeans and tailored pants, the better the fit, the slimmer and the more accentuated your features are.
- LINGERIE THAT SKIMS EVERY ENSEMBLE
Remember, we ladies should invest in different forms of lingerie for different outfits. Lace lingerie is not for flimsy tees and dresses as the fabric shows, and corsets are for those bloated days when everything just hangs out for the work to see.
- STATEMENT JEWELS
The jewels complete the outfit. Always. Make an impact by picking statement jewellery, just be careful not to go for an overkill.
- THE PURSE THAT NEVER FAILS
It could be an oversized clutch that’s big enough to fit your essentials during the day or a quilted purse that’s versatile and practical enough for night and day, whichever way, every lady needs that one purse that never fails her.
