Great fashionable habits you should get used to

Many of you struggle with willing to feel fashionable and confident. You'd like to always have an outfit that is perfectly on point, but you have the feeling that you're failing. My thoughts on this are simple : you need to instaure rules into your lifestyle and everything will start going much more smoothly.

OOTD : I Feline You

If you're freaking out by the word "rule", please don't be. Let's start this journey positively, shall we? Habits might be hard to stick to, but the truth is, is once you've started to truly follow them, you won't even realize that you're doing them. It works the exact same way as sport : once you've surpassed the first weeks then you're ready to go and never stop!

In this post, I'll be sharing a few of the habits that I think every person who wants to feel more "on point" should have. Keep in mind that I'm quite an organizational freak and these are habits that work perfectly for me. But if you don't feel like it, then adapt them to yourself or simply don't do them.


PREPARATION IS KEY

I'll start with the most important one : take time to think about what you'll be wearing. It's not during the 3 minutes you have in the morning that you'll find THE perfect outfit for your day (it might happen, but I'm not convinced).

Think about it ideally the night before (or if you're a maniac freak like me, plan your weekly outfits during the weekend). Start by finding inspiration (read my post about how I find my fashion inspiration), then think about what you have in your closet and how you could do a COMPLETE outfit. Don't leave shoes, bags and accessories for the morning, don't. Think about your whole outfit thoughtfully.

Want to know the secret to success : try them on! Why? Because it might not look as good in real life as it did in your mind. I'm just preventing any disappointment, I can assure you about that. 

GET CHANGED

This is probably the shortest tip, but it's still important to keep it in mind. Don't lounge around the house in your nice clothes. When you get home, change yourself into your sweatpants or your cute pyjama. I have the feeling that it helps you value more your outfits. Do you agree?

THE POWER OF UNDERGARMENTS

Choose your undergarments carefully before getting dressed. You will look much nicer without a pantyline or your bra showing. It's a small detail, but it goes a long way. 

For bras, I would recommend getting at least one nude bra and one strapless bra. If you're interested about a whole blog post about underwear, let me know. Be careful to choose bras where the details don't show too much through your shirt. I also enjoy a lot  bras that you can show, for example underneath sheer blouses.

OOTD : Something to know : every detail counts

SHOP WISELY

It all starts when shopping. The best advice I can give is : if you're not convinced right away when looking at the mirror, don't buy. You should buy pieces where you feel pretty and comfortable in. Take some time to think about what could go wrong. For instance, is this skirt too short when I bend, what bra should I wear, how do I wash it?

NEVER FORGET THE WEATHER

You might be wondering why I'm talking about weather here. It seems pretty obvious : would you like to go out with a skirt when the wind is strong? No. I wouldn't either. Remove these uncomfortable events by checking how's the weather on that day. It will also guide you on what kind outfit you should wear.

ALWAYS STAY ORGANIZED

I don't wanna see clothes everywhere (I sound like your mom, right?). Organize your closet. I'm planning on doing a full post about that so stay tune. It's really important to know where to find what you you're looking for. That way you already know what's in your closet and what you need to shop for. You'll be able to use your closet to its full potential.

KNOW YOUR STYLE BUT TRY

I think it's important to know what you like and what you feel comfortable wearing. I don't want you to wear this or that just because it's fashionable or because this person was wearing it. Take some time to think about styles you like, what clothes are you wearing a lot and try building yourself around that. In my opinion, Pinterest might be a great help! 

From time to time, go out of your comfort zone and try something new. You might end up liking it a lot and it will expand your style for the better!


How do you feel about the fact that implementing habits could help you build a more "on point" outfit?

  13. Oh, I definitely agree that having the right undergarments matters so much. Fit is always key, even if you can't see the garment! I recently got resized and it changed my life. Dramatic, but so true, haha!

    1. Sometimes it can be a bit hard to find. Try to look at pictures you love and see what kind of outfit it is.
      The Youtuber Evelina did a video about that if you're interested. ;)
