The Fashion Blueprint: Final fashion tips
The time has come for me to sashay away. It’s been a great semester telling you about the latest fashion trends, the do’s and don’ts and sharing my knowledge on what’s hot and what’s not.
Before I say farewell, the last piece of advice I leave you with is dressing well for all occasions.
Gentlemen, know some of the fashion laws of dressing well. For example the blazer — sometimes button the top, always the middle and never the bottom.
“This is something every guy should know by now,” Amanda DeMott, a men’s stylist at Nordstrom, said. “I know it sounds crazy, but people really do actually notice that just as much as if there was a giant stain on yourself.”
Ladies, find that pop of color to go with your black dress or layer in the cold to give yourself a more in-depth look. Make it simple but let your outfit do the talking.
As David Granger of Esquire says, “Style is a gentle act of will.”
Dressing with your own style is about standing out and making a subtle statement that says, “I’m different and I am my own.” To look great has never been more important. You never know who you’ll come across, whether it may be an old flame, a job interview or a chance run- in with “the one.”
Keep up with what’s going on in fashion and what’s in style. The more information and knowledge you carry, the more you’ll be in the know when it comes to being fashion forward.
Learn how to piece items together and make it your own personal style. Everyone likes to see something different. Sometimes, you have to color outside the lines. Be bold. Be brave. Be daring.
