SPRING 2016 TRENDS AND CLOSET STYLING TIPS (WITH LESS SHOPPING) - MAJOR MUST READ
Ready for spring 2016 style inspiration? Are you bored of wearing same things every day? You have no style? You are not happy with your basics? You wear sneakers and jeans every day? You are in your comfort zone? You like fashion but don't know what to do with it? Ok here's the pro stylist must read tips to change your style and outfits.
Learn the trends but you don't have to follow them. But if you like any of them and want to use just go for them! Never follow trends! It would be a fashion victim with no "personal style" mistake.
Learn to have some classics ( read French wardrobe essentials). French wardrobe must haves are what every women should have in their closet to style with other pieces. OWN THE CLASSICS. Own the style.
There are also other staples of the moment. Learn to mix rock- edgy pieces with basics and classics due to your taste. I mean everyone should own a good leather biker jacket, black leggings, flower power mini or midi or maxi dress (currently trending must have is "maxi" but not for everyone trend!), if you can afford designer bag (example: classic Chanel or cool Alexander Wang rockie), little black dress, ankle booties, suede booties, leather and suede skirts, accessories.
When I say accessories, its the key! All stylists are very pro about using accessories. Without accessories your look is never complete and will be so very dull. Jewelry is everything. You need to have cool and elegant pieces for different events like for a wedding elegant golden pieces and to a music festival beads and silver necklaces and many rings. Most stylists are obsessed with hats and sunglasses. You need to have the belt also. Stylist must-haves!
Here are some major inspiration collages and looks I picked via Pinterest. Get your inspiration and stop wearing same casual pieces and go for new classics and maybe try some trends. Cold shoulder and off shoulder trends are über right now. I am not into but you why not?
Before shopping go to your closet and check all the pieces what you have from previous seasons and never wore or wore or you can wear this season. If there are pieces you decide not to wear get rid off them. If you have very nice pieces you can wear and update your daily looks try to style them with your other clothes and accessories in your closet. Use your accessories. Do not use the same bag everyday while you have a lot of sleeping in the closet designer bags. Its a ruin its a waste! Trust me you need to use them!
Check your celebrity style icons for inspiration. check fashion bloggers' instagrams and get inspired! Know your body shape and check infront of mirror which dress type and jean type complements you most. For example me: A-line dresses and skinny jeans work best on me. Flare jeans are über trend now but I do not use the trend cause it fits a bit of skinny and tall bodies trend.
Have some cool flat, comfortable and trendy sandals for SUMMER. I am on the hunt for suede brown pairs this summer. I also like Ancient Greek Sandals and lookalikes of their styles.
Write down your favorite looks and pieces and make sure the trends you hate so you would know you would never ever wear them (never say never but sometimes you do) - like crop tops if you dont have a flat stomach or if you dont like 90s style.
Follow the beauty makeovers. Check makeup inspirations there are makeup brand collections coming with images and that seasons collection. I always check makeup brands' seasonal collection images and what makeup colour and products are on. Dior has amazing makeup collection they are my favorite. My favorite eyeshadow palettes are from Urban Decay and I almost have all their palettes. I love Mac lipsticks and have a collection. Chanel has amazing lipsticks too. Check my instagram for my high profile makeup stash :) Yes I am a long term makeup addict and pro.
If you live in sneakers all the time you should try mid heel (not kitten but large heel) shoes: sandals and booties for style update. I can not like to be in stilettos for more than 15 minutes cause oh! they are so painful but if you love stilettos you can carry ballet flats in your purse to change them after a while.
Don't forget to check everything I said and make sure to slay with your updated ready for spring style !
