One of the unpleasant facts of the world we live in is that we evaluate other people based on their appearance, even if we know we shouldn’t. There are a few people who have learnt to look past their appearance, but for the most part, people will judge you based on your appearance, whether or not they should.21

You don’t have to be current on the latest trends or keep up with fashion (I surely don’t). Knowing a few timeless guidelines is all it takes:
Tailor Fit Your clothes
To make sure something fits, you usually buy the smallest size that fits on your body while still allowing you to move freely. You should buy the smallest size of pants that allows you to comfortably squat, twist, kick out your legs, or lounge. When it comes to shirts and jackets, the smallest size that still allows you to lift your arms, clasp your hands in front of and behind your back, and provide you with complete flexibility is recommended. Clothing should make you feel nice and flatter your figure without being too tight or creating discomfort at the joints and seams.
Hiring a professional tailor is one way to make any piece of clothing seem beautiful. Tailored clothing not only looks good, but it also makes you feel good. You won’t feel elegant in pants that drag on the ground or outfits that bunch up awkwardly. If your capsule wardrobe fits you well, you can begin to experiment with over- and under-sized things in a stylish, not sloppy manner.
Build a Capsule wardrobe
A closet stocked with easy-to-mix-and-match things can take the guesswork out of your morning routine. Invest in timeless staples such as a fantastic pair of denim, a modest LBD, and timeless jewelry. This suggestion isn’t for everyone, but if you prefer classic and traditional styles with a twist, sticking to neutral, tonal hues is a simple way to look attractive. Not only are neutrals easy to mix and match, but they can also be used to create a monochromatic look, which is the pinnacle of stylish.
Make sure you have the following wardrobe essentials: a classic little black dress, a pair of well-fitting trousers, a classic blazer, simple T-shirts and button-downs in neutral hues, and an easy leather jacket (or denim jacket). The trick to looking put-together is to invest in a capsule collection of mix-and-match basics (and learn how to dress them).
Shoes are the one thing that can rapidly bring an outfit down. Someone dressed in a three-piece suit and muddy sneakers will look horrible; but, someone dressed in track pants, a gray tee, and brand-new Air Jordans will look great. Make the most of this idea by selecting high-quality footwear. No, I don’t mean buy expensive shoes; if you know where to look, you can find nice shoes for a reasonable price. I’m referring to selecting high-quality footwear.
Choose the polar opposite of what you would ordinarily wear for footwear. Swap out your high heels for flat booties, high heels for high heels, and sandals for sandals. The more incorrect it appears to be, the more correct it is. This is something I can assure you of.
Mix Patterns and Texture
The days of matching your handbag and shoes are long gone. A striking fashion statement is made with clashing fabric textures and designs. Start with simple patterns like stripes and low-key textures like leather and knits, then gradually add sequins and paisleys in little doses (such as a scarf, tie, or clutch) until you figure out what works best for you.
Forget everything you know about what colors “match together” if you want your combination to have uniqueness. There are no limitations! To make an outfit intentional and stand out, mix neons, neutrals, pastels, and other colors.
It’s incredibly stylish to layer a variety of various fabrics in one outfit—ribbed knit, snakeskin print, suede, silk, leather, and so on. You can choose to be aggressive with your color choices or to keep them all the same shade to keep the texture mixing unobtrusive.
Do a Simple Routine Makeup
The best way to create a makeup look that lasts is to start your makeup application with a primer that extends the life of your face makeup. Apply yours over your entire face to create an even canvas for the rest of your makeup. Add a touch of simple eye makeup with custom lash alternatives that you can apply quickly when you’re on the go are included. After you’ve finished blending out your pastel concealer shades, use makeup brushes to dab a matte foundation all over your face.
For women, style is a need for success in a manner that it isn’t for males. As a result, women who make an attempt to seem trendy come across as ‘typical’ women, but men who make an effort to look stylish come across as smart, sophisticated guys.
