We often hear the saying “looks don’t matter”. While it does, to some extent, nothing hurts with looking your best. If it helps you feel more confident in yourself, that’s enough reason to try and be beautiful. To help you achieve your best looking, below are some fashion tips to guide you in making style choices.
Don’t Go with Trends, Go with Your Style
Never change your own and personal style just to fit in or for the sake of following a trend. This strips you of your originality and makes you more self-conscious. Maintaining your own style in clothing is always the best option, although it can be scary to be different, it is good to know that being different is what makes you stand out and that’s what matters the most out in the real world.
Style Your Eyebrows
The eyebrows are an integral part of the face. Knowing how to shape and maintain them based on what suits your facial features is important. Although the task of maintaining the eyebrows is tedious, it is something worth investing in. Especially nowadays, where there’s an emphasis on a single style of eyebrows. Again, you don’t have to follow trends- if it suits you perfectly, but if it doesn’t, you can try something else.
Don’t Forget Your Teeth
A good smile can immediately make you look better tenfold. So make sure that you’re beaming those pearly whites when you go out. Of course, it’s also important to take care of your teeth, so make it a habit to brush your teeth and floss. Regular trips to the dentist will also significantly help in keeping both the health and aesthetics of your teeth.
Get Into Fitness
There are more reasons why you should exercise other than health. You’ll fit better in clothes, you’ll even feel better in your everyday life! Of course, if you have health issues, it’s best to go with doctors or physical therapists who can help you with treatment for scoliosis-caused back pain, stress, or even sitting up all day. Jumping into fitness shouldn’t be too much of a daunting task. You can start slowly, what’s important is you’re consistent with it.
Take Care of Your Clothes
Needless to say, clothing is an integral part of how you look. Fashion can provide a considerable boost in confidence, especially if the style suits you. However, a common problem many people face is that they can only wear their best clothing for a short time because they don’t know how to take care of them. Here’s a quick guide to help you out.
Preserve your Jeans Longer. The best way to preserve your favorite go-to pair of jeans is by turning them inside-out before putting them in the washer. By doing so, their colors do not fade as quickly, and they are not worn down as much.
Breaking in New Shoes. The best way to mold your feet into a new pair of shoes is by wearing them along with a thick pair of socks. While wearing the shoes and socks, apply medium heat using a hairdryer, do this for a couple of minutes for best results.
Shortening Pants and Skirts. Body tape is the easiest solution to shorten the hem of your pants, dress, or skirt if you do not know how to sew.
Rip Protection. Hairspray when sprayed on tights helps prevent rips.
Convenient Way to Remove Lint. Duct tape is an effective substitute for lint rollers. Just dab the tape on lint-covered areas.
Eyeliner Hacks. Mascara can be a substitute for liquid eyeliner. All you need to do is use an angled make-up brush in applying the mascara to your eyelids.
Removing Odors. Grapefruit, orange, and lime peels are effective deodorants. Place them inside your sneakers overnight to eliminate bad odor.
Jewelry Cleaning Tips. The simplest way to clean your diamond ring is by soaking it in a small bowl containing liquid hand wash and warm water for 15 minutes. Rinse the ring after 15 minutes with water then pat dry.
Swimwear Maintenance. The right way of washing swimwear is through handwashing. It should be rinsed using cold water and then soaked in a sink full of water and detergent. Once finished do not squeeze out the water from the swimwear, instead simply put it flat on a dry towel to let it dry.
At the end of the day, if it makes you happy and it doesn’t hurt anybody, go ahead and do it. Fashion is very much in that boat- if it makes you feel confident and empowered, then it’s the right one for you.
