It is becoming increasingly expensive to maintain a good fashion taste especially in this time of change in Naija. However, one could still stand out without razing down one’s bank account. All you need is a good fashion sense and the right place to get your items. I would like to share some fashion nuggets that can keep you fashionable even ata time like this:
Build your collection: those that you see today having a wardrobe did not start yesterday. They started a collection of durable clothing and accessories and accumulate overtime that they can afford not to wear the same combination for a short while. Rome was not built in a day. Decide today to go for authentic clothes, shoes and accessories and build your wardrobe overtime.
Quality is better than quantity: one important point you should keep in mind (when building your collection), is that the quality is more important than the quantity. This is especially important if your goal is to create a brand. Like I said in one of my earlier write up on this blog; authentic fashion is durable, counterfeit fashion is fleeting. When you spend your money, you want to make sure you are spending it on items that will last.
Know your body type (shape) and embrace it: every fashion conscious individual should know his/her body type and choose fashion accessories that suit. This is more pertinent for ladies, not that it does not concern guys. It is common knowledge that vertical stripes tend to make you look taller and thinner so it is a no go arrear if you are tall and slender. Horizontal stripes will not suit a short and plump figure because they make you look shorter and fatter. Broad, flat or drooping shoulders, Small or big burst, hour glass shape or pear shape; all these have corresponding suitable clothing styles that will bring out the best of you. We did a few of this in our ‘Dress to fit your shape’ series some months back.
Accentuate your strengths and conceal your weaknesses: this,(according to me) is the first rule of fashion. Since we are not all endowed the same. Do you have a statistics such as 32-30-38. You should flaunt your hips and conceal you burst as much as possible. This is also very applicable in your facial makeup.
Go for the best accessories: changing the accessories you use with a particular dress could make all the difference in your appearance. One thumb rule (for ladies);Brightlycoloured accessories are more versatile than neutral colours so go for them!
