“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”- Leonardo da Vinci
Is it time for you to reinvent your style? Add a bit of class and sophistication to your look?
We’re all for creating our own individual and unique style, however by obtaining a timeless style that will work for generations, you can save yourself the daily stress of what to wear and look effortlessly elegant any day of any year.
One of the key rules for maintaining a classic style is keeping your outfits simple but sanguine. A pair of ordinary black jeans and a t-shirt are the ‘go to’.
If you’ve got a wardrobe full of neutrals create more energy with bold shoes or bags.
Feeling really adventurous? Wear a neutral outfit with shoes and a bag in two different complementary colours; for example using a Whitehouse Cox red satchel as your statement piece alongside a pair of bright coloured heels creates a cultivated look.
Sure you can save money on a bag from your typical high street brand, but there’s nothing like a handmade bag that will stand the test of time.
Splurging on one staple piece that you can use indefinitely is much more efficient then buying multiple non-versatile bags. Whether that means a high-end designer bag or a high-quality leather bag, that little bit of luxury keeps you and your wardrobe balanced.
Conquer Your Fear of Simplicity
Simplicity is key in having flawless fashion. In order to attain a sophisticated timeless style you have to live in neutrals all day everyday. Although bold patterns and prints can definitely work in an elegant and sophisticated look, it can become daunting at first, if you fear the daring bold and bright colours then neutrals are going to be your new best friend. In order to dress like a real lady you require a bit of modesty. Revealing your midriff and unveiling low décolletage is perceived as uncouth by many and should be avoided when possible.
The Perfect Fit
We all try to squeeze into a tiny pair of jeans just because we don’t dare get a bigger size. However sizing is key when creating the perfect outfit; too tight and you lose all sense of class, too loose and your body is drowning in sea of unflattering clothes.
We often buy something on a whim because it’s becoming the new trend or because your saw someone on the street and thought they looked amazing. Two weeks later it’s scrunched in the back of your wardrobe unworn with the tags still attached because it no longer suits you. If a piece of clothing doesn’t make you feel great, help someone else feel good by donating it to your local charity.
Ignore the sales
It’s easy to be won over by a big banner in-front of your face screaming sale! However in order to save money and precious space in your wardrobe you need to resist the urge. Never give in and buy something just because it’s “a great deal”.
An efficient way to keep your wardrobe at a sensible size is to throw away a piece of clothing every time you add another new piece. It will help keep your wardrobe and shelves free of clutter and you will have more time to relax in the morning instead of sifting through mountains of clothes. A top tip is to never buy something unless you completely love it or you will have to lose something sacred from your wardrobe.
