Top tips to keep your style timeless
Ahhh, style – it’s a runaway train at the best of times and, with the ever-changing fashion landscape, trying to keep up can feel nigh-on impossible. And, let’s face it – some new trends look outright ridiculous. Whether the London Fashion Week is showcasing models with flip-flops attached to their stomachs, shoes in the shape of a horse’s head or trousers made of ham, cutting edge styles are simply too outlandish for day-to-day use. That’s why we’ve put together some top fashion tips to make your sense of style timeless, meaning you won’t have to gamble on the latest ridiculous trends. So, put yourself in the fashion-based driving seat with some of these handy tips.
Keep your hair at its peak
Hair care can be a nightmare at the best of times. There are just too many ways to make it look awful. It might be too frizzy, too curly, too difficult to tame – too much of everything. But, there are a few sure fire ways to keep it at its peak. Firstly, make sure you’re using a natural shampoo that won’t pollute your follicles with nasty chemicals and unnecessary additives. Secondly, try not to fill your hair with too much product. Again, the natural look is usually best when it comes to hair, and a lack of product will ensure that it doesn’t dry out or become a damaged mess. Finally, keep your moisture levels up. Drink a healthy amount of water to keep your skin and your hair hydrated, giving it that ideal sheen.
Stay elegant with a minimalist look
Let’s go back to those mad fashion weeks – lampshades for hats, nipple tassel trousers, mirror ball vests and loads more strange variations on fashion can be viewed there. Alright, that may be a slight exaggeration, but the reality is that many styles are a bit too outré for your average dinner party. No, the best looks are the old classics. Elegant blacks and whites and smooth, stylish dresses are still trendy for a reason – they never get old. So, don’t try the lampshade-head, ham trousers look. Just keep it simple.
Go DIY with your style
Have a look at premier fashion designer Vivienne Westwood – she’s as mad as a box of frogs, yet her entire clothing line is a joyous expression of her personality. With her DIY aesthetic she’s created a range that exudes her sensibility from every fold of fabric. It’s a lesson that we could all learn from. Try creating your own looks, whether it’s by altering high street clothing or taking the sewing machine to a variation of fabrics. Don’t be afraid to look like yourself. After all, what’s fashion if not an expression of the real you?
