24 Hours to Improving Your Fashion Sense

In less than 24 hours, it is entirely possible to improve your fashion sense, if not completely redefine it. It may seem like a mystifying impossibility from the outset, but with some simple tricks and tips, but this time timeline tomorrow you can be as fierce as Beyoncé and Taylor Swift. First and foremost, you need to trust yourself. If something doesn't make you feel like the queen you are, then it's not up to par.

Secondly, never say "I can't…" or "I shouldn't…" when it comes down to whether or not a certain style will work for you. If you like it and you feel good in it, then you can and you should! Fashion sense is a marriage between what is current and what works personally. Familiarize yourself with both of these things, and you'll be golden.

Learn Your Body Type

The number one thing that will turn your fashion sense around within one revolution on the earth's axis is determining your body type. The mistake made by many women when it comes to their couture is selecting trending pieces designed for a different body type. Are you an apple? Pear? Tall and leggy or short and muscular? Whatever your shape, there are clothes designed to maximize your curves and make you look as drop-dead gorgeous as you feel.

Don't cut yourself off at the knees by completely reworking your wardrobe with new, fashionable clothes only to discover that they don't compliment your shape. Just because a certain article is fashionable in general doesn't mean it should be a part of your personal fashion.

Explore Your Color Pallette

Another thing you can do within 24 hours is brush up your color knowledge. There are warm and cool skin tones, and while most women know that plays a role in makeup selection, many ignore the role it plays in clothing selection. Don't pet this hold you back, however; it's often said that redheads only look good in neutral colors or blondes only look good in pastels. This is a complete myth! As is the idea that people with ruddier complexions shouldn't wear red or pink.

Work with your natural color pallette, but don't let it hold you back. When it comes to fashion, color is like an outfit's soul. Familiarize yourself with how wearing different colors not only make you look but also how they make you feel. Some colors, like red, might be trendy, but they might also make you feel too much like the center of attention. Clothing color plays as much of a role in feeling comfortable as the cut and texture of the clothing do.

Knowing your personal pallette also impacts accessory selection. Some people do better with natural stone jewellery over gems; cotton purses over leather; silver over gold. Pay attention to these small elements as they also play a role in your color palette.

Express Your Personality

The sexiest, most confident women are the ones who cater their exterior style to their interior style. Dressing in a way that compliments your personality is an instant fashion win. The more comfortable you feel in your clothes, the more confidence you exude, the more successful you are at pulling off your fashionable outfit. It's hard to be comfortable in something that doesn't mesh with your personality. That said, if you're looking to achieve mainstream fashion sense, you might need to set aside some of your personality. Not every single aspect of who you are and how you feel can be represented in clothing. Finding a middle ground is important. 

Purchase Wardrobe Staples

Little black dresses; red pumps; strappy heels; the jeans that make your legs go on for days. There are certain things every wardrobe needs. Finding those items will bring you one step closer to redefining your fashion sense within 24 hours. A killer jacket is a must. It can be added to several different outfits, it's a practical article of clothing, and it turns casual into fabulous. Plus, jackets are an every-season article of clothing.

Cool summer evenings, crisp fall nights, brisk winter days, and rainy spring mornings, a jacket always has your back. Also a must are a pair of flats. Jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts- flats compliment them all. Flats also give your toes a break from the regular fashion go-to, high heels. Another staple that's working it's way back into the mainstream is the hat. A nice, wide-brimmed, floppy hat is a practical, fashionable element to add to your repertoire stat!

Have Go-To Combinations

When building a fashionable wardrobe within 24 hours, don't forget to purchase the building blocks necessary for cohesive outfits. The key to achieving A+ fashion sense is knowing what looks good together.

Test your abilities at a store with a friend. Work on pairing various articles and see what the friend thinks. Then, purchase the pieces that work well with more than one thing. It's nice to go into your closet knowing you can find there a pair of pants, jacket, shirt, and shoes that you bought expressly to go together. It's even better when those items can also belong to four separate and equally fashionable outfits.

Accessorize

Having high fashion purses, earrings, watches, belts, and shoes take any outfit from drab to fab in a heartbeat. If you have a Coach purse on your arm or Jimmy Choos on your feet, no one will question whether or not you're style-savvy.

Stellar, eye-catching accessories carry a single outfit a long way, and they're easy to swap out to keep your look fresh. They are also a great way to make the same piece of clothing look entirely different. The same shirt worn with three different scarves or necklaces will be rendered entirely new each time.

Discover What the Stars Are Flaunting

A great way to expose yourself to new trends in designer clothes for women is to pick up a celebrity magazine. Take some time to see what the stars are wearing. Photos of them out and about at semi-casual and moderately-formal events provide awesome reference material for what you can sport in your day-to-day life. Celebrities typically have an entire team of people picking out what they're going to wear. This means they are tapped directly into the vein of high fashion.

Cut and Color to Match

During your 24 hour fashion transformation, take time for part of your wardrobe that's always with you: your hair. A cut and color updates your look immediately, and just like with clothing, there are trends in hair styling as well.

All of the essentials that come with updating clothing accompany updating hair fashion. Check in with celebrities to see what's cutting edge, pick something that feels authentically "you," and buy some cute hair accessories to keep things interesting day-to-day.

From Tip to Toe

Last but not least, polish your fingers and toes! Like classy belt buckles, adorable purses, and small hair pins, polishing your fingers and toes are a small fashionable touch that wrap up your 24 hour fashion makeover. It's the little things that make the biggest difference in the world of fashion.

Keep Pushing Your Boundaries

Once you've gone on this 24 hour quest to improve your fashion sense, don't stop there. Fashion is a shifting, changing thing; stay tuned in by way of the channels you've found over the past 24 hours. Keep expanding your interests and broadening your horizons. Get bolder and more daring and more comfortable when it comes to making fashion choices.

In 24 hours you can learn what's hot in Hollywood, determine some facts about your body type and color palette, pick out some essentials, plan outfits, and pull everything together with accessories. Now, you can look fabulous and implement your new sensibilities for years to come!
