Our Top 10 Fashion Tips & Tricks

Posted

(1) Cut down your closet by 25% by asking yourself this one question: “If I were shopping right this second, would I buy this?” If the answer’s no, out it goes. — Melanie Charlton Fascitelli, Founder, Clos-ette and Clos-ette Too. Another tip is to hang all your clothes facing one way, over the next few months, turn the hangers around as you wear the clothes. At the end of six months, have a look at what you didn't wear. Unless its a seasonal item or something very formal, you can feel confident that if you didn't have it, you wouldn't miss it! Did you know non-profit associations like the Canadian Diabetes Association will come and collect your gently used clothing and sell it for funding towards education and research.

(2) “Never put a garment on immediately after ironing, as this can actually cause new wrinkles to form. Instead, let it sit for five minutes to set the press.” — Althea Harper, Designer and Rowenta Brand Ambassador

(3) The secret to well-fitting everyday clothes is Lycra. The formulas to look for: 95% cotton/5% Lycra spandex for T-shirts, and at least 2% Lycra for jeans to hold their shape.

(4) “Panty lines are not okay! Every woman should invest in nude, seamless underwear.” — Giuliana Rancic, HSN designer and E! host

                     

(5) Love your gorgeous silk scarves but don't get to wear them much? Frame them and display them as cool wall art! Have a look at these beautiful rooms we found on Pinterest...

                   

 

(6) Not sure how to store your costume jewelry? Put them individually in ziploc bags. Storing jewelry together in a jewelry box can cause tarnishing. Jewelry sitting on a bathroom counter can tarnish faster from moisture.

(7) Are you Cool or Warm? Know which colours will flatter you the most by figuring out if the undertones in your skin are either warm or cold. The experts at The Fashion Spot say women with cool undertones look best in white, black, gray, silver, and shades of blue. Women with warm undertones will be dazzling in shades of yellow, gold, brown, green and red. Not sure how to tell? Check out our post Gold or Silver? What Metal Suits Your Skin Tone for more information.

(8) Stock up on Basics - Every woman should have a little black dress, a pair of well-fitting blue jeans, a crisp white shirt and white cotton t-shirt, a black blazer, a denim jacket or shirt, a leather jacket, comfortable heels (black and nude), a statement necklace, diamond/cubic studs and some few bracelets. Check out these blog posts for more helpful information.

                                             

(9) If it Doesn't Fit, You Must Let it Go: We've all been there, standing in the dressing room and convincing ourselves that the button will magically stay closed when we get home (and then, of course, it doesn't). These are the times where we have to accept that our bodies have changed in one way or another, and buy clothes that fit. Because you know what happens to the clothes that don't fit (cue garbage bags being dropped off at Goodwill here).

(10) When In Doubt, Overdress: "There's nothing worse than showing up an event underdressed. Maybe the invite didn't specify or involved the word casual — but everyone else dressed up not so casually. If you don't know what the dress code is, overdress. There's no harm in looking too pulled together, but you'll feel uncomfortable if you think you look out of place." Huffington Post
