April 28, 2017
Summer’s almost here and everyone's looking for the quickest way to get their groove back and be "Summer Time Fine".
We’re not judging, but looking good in your clothes and loosing weight doesn't happen magically for most.
There's a few things that you can do to refresh your wardrobe and instantly look like you've lost weight.
IDENTIFY YOUR BODY SHAPE
There's been a lot of talk about body type vs. body shape. People are confused about the difference. We look at it like this: “body Type” is the industry standard. There a 4 commonly used industry body types.
Many women fall in between these standard body types. Body shape is your individual body and where you fall based on the industry standard.
There is value in dressing for your specific body shape. We promise that you’ll be more comfortable and confident if you embrace your silhouette, rather than work against it and feel so much more comfortable in your clothes.
Trends are great for the people that look good in them. Honestly, every trend is not for every body. Literally!
Once you 've figured out your body type and you know what clothes look good on you, going shopping becomes so much easier. There's something out there for every body. Stop attempting to fit into the jeans that are two sizes too small. Doing this causes belly bulge and a whole lot more. Instead, wear your correct size. When you do, not only will you appear more polished, but you will feel comfortable in your skin. Confidence is attractive.
Getting rid of clothes that shrunk in the dryer is also important! You may not have realized it, but the dryer can change the way clothes fit. Sometimes its ok to just let it go!
Make room for the new things that fit well.
WEAR THE RIGHT COLORS
If you're not afraid of color, neons are great, but there's a way to wear them. Pair neons with white, grey or other neutral colors for a refreshing, but not overwhelmingly, cute look. Don't wear multiple neons at once and avoid wearing neons with stripes.
Skip the rainbow! For those of us that are spontaneous, avoid wearing more than 3 solid colors in one outfit. It can become distracting.
When going into a professional environment, be sure to wear colors that are "Office Appropriate". Avoid anything patterned unless you work in a fashion-forward and/or liberal environment.
REFRESH YOUR WARDROBE
Listen, lets keep it real, if you haven’t worn that sweater you scored during Banana Republic’s semi-annual sale about five years ago... LET IT GO! It was a great deal, and I’m sure someone else would love to have it. Anything that you have not worn in a year should find a new home. Yep, I said it!
If you live in an area where the seasons are active, be mindful of them. Be sure to choose materials/fabrics that are appropriate for the season that you're in. For instance, flowy and thin fabrics are great for summer, but not winter. You will feel uncomfortable in your clothes if you are too hot or too cold.
