If you cringe inwardly, feeling like a mess every time you see one of those style goddesses who always seems perfectly put together, you don’t need to worry. This is because we have a little something to take you straight to style heaven! Scarlet Gratton, our guest contributor, has put together a short list of amazing fashion hacks that will teach you how to be stylish!
Yes, there are women who just have this talent and can look amazing wearing a potato sack. As for the rest of us, we have to work for it. Luckily, there are a lot of tried and true fashion hacks to make you look your best.
Our Effortless Fashion Hacks
Tame your Mane
Just in case you didn’t know, fashion hacks are not only about the pieces you are wearing but everything about you. Great hair seems to be a mythical construct – like unicorns and the perfect man. But does it really have to be that way? We tend to be a tad bit sensitive about our locks, and that makes us scared of change. You’d be surprised at how many women just rock the same style for years, decades even.
Allow yourself to have some fun with your hair. Or, if you’ve already had your share of hair experiments, talk to an expert stylist. Have them take a careful look at your hair. What style and color do they think would work for your hair type, face shape, and complexion? Insist on something easy to maintain. It might be worth it to invest a bit of time and money into a few products. Perhaps a salt spray would make all the difference? Or a curling wand? Always remember that a gorgeous hairstyle will instantly make you look put together.
Embrace Statement Jewelry
A good or even an average outfit can instantly be elevated just by adding the right jewelry. You didn’t have time to wash your hair? Deflect attention from it with a giant cocktail ring. Is your outfit relatively bland? Add a chunky necklace. Always be on the lookout for interesting pieces. Great jewelry doesn’t have to be expensive. As long as you avoid jewelry made from nickel, which can cause irritations and allergies, you’re good to go.
Play Up the Eyes
The eyes are the most striking feature on a face, and bright, wide eyes are associated with youth and beauty. There’s no better way to draw attention to them (and your flawless eye makeup), than with prescription glasses. The days when prescription glasses were the sure sign of a nerd are long behind us. Nowadays, they’re a universally stylish accessory that will make you look both sexy and smart at once. If you are not sure how to pick the right frame for you, let the professionals from Broadway eye care recommend the frame shape that will flatter your features.
Give in to Your Passion for Shoes
Every woman has a dark secret. Which one? Her shoebills. And what are fashion hacks without including shoes? If it’s wrong to love shoes so much, we never want to be right. The past few years, shoes have been most stylish when they clash with the outfit. A contrasting color? Excellent! Sky-high stilettos with boyfriend jeans? Great choice! Oxford flats with a mini dress? Brilliant. As a rule, heels will make any outfit look better, and accentuate your figure in the best possible way. So you better get to practicing that sexy strut.

Back to Basics
The past few years have seen the surge of capsule wardrobes. If you do the trend the right way, you should end up with a small, meticulously curated collection of pieces that can be worn in a huge number of wonderful combinations. Capsule wardrobes are awesome for a number of reasons: whatever you pick out of the closet will look great, it will save you wardrobe space, and it will save you money. You should be aiming for simple yet stylish outfits that will look amazing when you add the right accessories.
At the end of the day, fashion is all about feeling comfortable in your own skin. Pick and choose the fashion hacks that you think will work for you, but don’t be afraid to experiment once in a while too. You might be amazed at the results!
