How To Dress For Yourself and Still Look Absolutely Fabulous Despite On A Budget

I admit that it isn't easy to dress for one's self at first try. There are tons of things to consider aside from wanting to look effortlessly gorgeous. After all, fashion is key to success. Since not everyone is born for this endeavor, it won't hurt to do your own homework to ace it up. And of course, I'm here to help.
My ideal styling routine is checking my favorite magazines for inspiration. I shop very efficiently since I don't want to waste money. Although I tend to shop on a whim in some cases, I still have a backup plan when it happens to me. My secret is creating a list of style options as a guide. The truth is that I don't dress for anyone. I wear fashionable clothes and walk confidently anywhere because I owe it to myself. At first glance, no one can help me achieve my dreams but myself.
Since I've enlisted myself to help you dress for yourself without fear of harsh and secret comments from other people, let me lay down the essentials of showcasing one's style. Let's begin!
1. Find your own style and put it out there everyday. Did you know that your style is a prelude to your daily existence? People will judge you based on your demeanor but their greatest bias towards your presence is your look. As they call is first impressions last, you should use it as an advantage. Before purchasing tons of clothes, think about your personality. How do you present yourself to the public? Are you a modern woman who wins everyone's heart by looking effortlessly chic all the time? Or is your simplicity a weapon to defeat others? Whatever is your way to get what you want, it always start with how you present your style. Arrange your clothes in a manner you want to deal with others. In some cases, you need clothes for peace and tranquility. At times, you want to be taken seriously. Always be prepared by having a least one look for every occasion.
2. Prepare a reliable plan before building your wardrobe. Once you have identified your own style, you'll need to reinforce your wardrobe choices. Of course, you'll need to shop your closet first. Make an inventory of your clothing pieces and accessories. You can count the number of classy items and keep it. If you have trendy pieces, make sure that it's perfect to team with your retro items. Obviously, you'll need to learn the art of pairing to save money on your clothing expenses. After the inventory, keep a list of the items that you'll need to buy. For example, you have discovered that you need at least one trench coat. Include it in the list of your to-buy items. If the item that your planning to buy is really expensive, your best option is to visit your favorite vintage shops. Purchase the best trench coat with your style in mind, after all you're still doing the right thing to save cash while shopping. If you have chosen to buy it in a shopping haven, you'll need to spend more money. No wonder it's highly recommended to buy it in a thrift store.

3. Make sure that your accessories match with majority of your chosen clothes. It's really important to be wise in spending your clothing allowance. Based on your initial inventory, check your accessories one by one. You'll need a basic pair of shoes, a classy handbag and a reliable outerwear. These three items should match with your clothes. This is an essential trick to save you time while preparing every morning. Personally, I try to have a pair of shoes that I can wear everyday to work and buy two options to be used when I like to dress up. I only have two heels: one pair is colored and the other one is black. Then, I bought a pair of rugged looking black shoes for street styling. If I have money to spare for bargain hunting, that's the time I buy more fashionable footwear.
4. Listen to the comments of your friends about your style and personality. I can only guarantee that majority of your friends will give out compliments about your outfit. Others will tell you indirectly about your faulty styling techniques. Don't worry. Not all of them is aware of the best styling alternative so you need to be confident all the time. You can always alter your look if you find it really inappropriate. In other words, don't be afraid to experiment. In that sense, you will discover your best assets in dressing up and you'll learn a lot of things in the process. If your friends don't mind your styling development, you can also ask them instead. You'll get useful information if you solicit comments wholeheartedly.
5. Prepare at least three style samples and post it in your dressing room. Personally, I have four fashion techniques these days. First, I have a photo sample for a really simple look. This is the typical jeans and t-shirt look that we really like nowadays. Second, I have an alternative for jeans and it is a structured skirt. I want a structured design because it looks good on me. If I wear a delicate skirt, it should be long and well-designed so I can carry it effortlessly. Third, I have a perfect peg for wearing dresses. It should be modest, stylish and classy. The last one is celebrity styling sample. It's very creative since I don't have a common uniform. I can wear such look every time I'm in the mood to dress up. I like maxi dresses, suede designs and more. I can dream of wearing ruffled skirts and oversize shirts. Since I believe that inspiration is everywhere, I don't limit myself with ordinary clothing techniques. I improvise, restyle and repeat my  unique clothes every now and then.
6. Choose two to three fashion icons to copy once in a while. Supermodels exist to teach us a thing or two about styling. Although they're not our best friends in a literal sense of it, they're everywhere to guide us in dressing up. We often follow them online and check their latest fashion projects. Why not choose a model to be your style peg? She should be someone with a really remarkable style that you can relate with. Or else you'll be lost in a sea of styling showdown. Stay true to your individual style and look up to an icon that really empowers you to look and feel your best. To emulate someone you really like these days, you'll need a solid proof that it is essential to your efforts in dressing up for yourself. It's always easy to judge anyone as a fashion victim, but it's even easier to treat someone as fashionably chic who is as honest and sincere to her own self. Avoid looking like a pretentious wannabe by being sincere in your will to look fashionable no matter what. Always go back to who you are and how you want to express yourself.

7. Don't forget to have a balanced diet and exercise regularly for a sound mind and body. Good health is a contributing factor to look and feel good. I've learned this the hard way. I'm not fond of having a regular fitness regimen and I eat what I want everyday. It changes by figure and I had a hard time choosing for the right clothes. I ended up wearing just anything and worrying how I can wear delicate clothes for a change. Always remember that looking fashionably gorgeous requires a good posture, an enviable personality and total confidence. By having a balanced diet and regular exercise, you'll have a toned physique that's perfect for wearing fashionable clothing pieces.

These pieces of information are a product of constantly studying fashion as my passion. It's a hobby that I developed for years and I want to share the things that I learned with you. There's no rush in dressing for yourself. Enjoy the steps you take in going up the ladder of success in looking your best. I'm certain that you're looking for an inspiration and I take this opportunity to inspire you with my passion for fashion. Share my blog to your friends and let's have the best versions of ourselves. Stay chic!
