Dress your size Refrain from choosing clothes that are too loose or too tight. It tends to draw out the wrong proportions of your figure. Always match your figure to the right size of clothes. Study which areas of your body are to be accentuated and what pieces to shop for that fits like a glove. Dress your age If you’re 18, a decent pair of ripped jeans with a trendy chic top would do just fine but if you’re 45, you might want to keep your distance from those ripped jeans and hot pink cropped jackets. Something a little extra subtle with tedious tones would compliment your elderly looks and represent you gracefully. Tag a friend along It’s always safe to bring a friend along with you when you shop. At times we may not often realise what looks good on us and what may not but a friend would be able to see through it and guide us where we need to be. Trending but not for you We ladies need to comprehend what’s trending is not always meant for all of us. Just because it’s all over the fashion magazines and the girls in your office are trending to it, does not mean you need to join the club. Radiant in your comfort As long as you’re comfortable and confident in what you wear, you can never go wrong. Comfort is linked to your inner persona, when you feel cozy wearing something that’s because it goes hand in hand with your personality. So dress in confidence!
