Tip #01:Make Sure Your Clothes Are a Perfect Fit
Oftentimes we have encountered people who prefer a size up or even a size down. A size up
looks especially bulky while a size down could potentially ruin your clothing item. The right size is the one that fits you like a glove and highlights your stature. Although this particular statement is controversial in the sense that fashion nowadays is leaning more towards looser styles and baggy clothes. However, there is an argument for slim fit clothing. The easy way to properly approach this problem just depends on the look you’re going for and of course your body type.
So if you’re wearing a suede jacket, the fitting should be immaculate and perfect according to your body, however, if you’re opting for baggy hoodies or boxy shirts then they should be loose fitting. All in all, the perfect fitting should be your primary focus as it is the essence of dressing up.
Tip #02: Keep it Minimalistic
One important thing to note when you’re dressing up casually is to never take inspiration from high fashion catalogs because nowadays loose fitting and oversized pieces with loud boisterous logos are the talk of the town. And though it may be some people’s taste, it’s not everyone’s. This is why you should always opt for a minimalistic and simple style and take our word for it when we say that simple is never not cool. Considering your existing wardrobe is also important as simple styles are extremely versatile and will go with everything your wardrobe has to offer.
Tip #03: Find Styles that Are Your Comfort Zone
Every day we see people investing hundreds and thousands on streetwear just because it’s the latest trend or because a particular fashion brand introduced it or because xy actor, singer, or influencer wore it. But is it really worth it if it doesn’t go with your aesthetic or if it doesn’t abide by your comfort zone?
The most important thing when dressing up is to always wear clothes that compliment your personality while simultaneously catering to your comfort zone. And that is only possible if you choose clothing items that you’re comfortable in and can flaunt your personality and individuality. However, if you choose an outfit that you feel insecure in then that will be visible and all the money you spent will be useless.
Tip #04: Go Easy
Simplify and reduce your everyday outfits in the sense that it’s not restrictive or stifling. Find styles that won’t take a lot of time to think about or ponder in the morning when you’re sitting in front of the wardrobe.
Choose daily ensembles that don’t take up a lot of time in the morning yet look exceptionally stylish and fashionable. Go for leather jackets and trousers that you can repeat more often than not. Try out outfits that are effortless to style yet when you wear them they make jaws drop.
Tip #05: Opt for Neutral Toned Articles
An extremely easy way to style outfits is to stock up on clothing items that are neutral toned like black, white, gray, navy, or brown.

These options are incredibly flexible to incorporate into your everyday outfits and will go easily with all the articles that you have in your existing wardrobe.
