This year, we're all about minimum effort with maximum results when it comes to our style. We still love dressing up, of course, but with all the many things to do and explore this year, we're definitely going to need to free up our time. So what's a busy gal got to do to stay looking snazzy without having to exert a lot of effort? Heed these tips to looking put together the easy way.
Steam or iron your clothes
We know — steaming or ironing clothes sounds boring. Who has the time for it? Well, you have to make time for it. Crease- and lint-free clothing says you mean business.
It's all about balance
When it comes to accessorizing, there is a perfect balance. Going bare is okay, but putting a trinket or two jazzes up your outfit quickly. Over-accessorizing, though? You may want to think twice about it. The best way to go about it is to heed Coco Chanel's advice: "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off."
Wear shoes that fit perfectly
Nothing says poorly dressed better than ill-fitting shoes. When you wear a pair that doesn't suit you, it affects not only the way you look but also how you feel and act. If you have stubby feet, find shoes that don't only look good but also fit well.
Invest in classic pieces
You can never, ever, go wrong with the classics. Invest in pieces that are timeless and can be used for a long, long time. Think LBDs (little black dresses), black pants and white shirt.
Mind your posture
We all know that the way we carry ourselves plays a huge part when it comes to our overall look. So make sure you're not slouching. Try to imagine your back being pulled by a string from above or that you're walking with a book above your head.
