Reach for Neutrals

Deciding which colours look best isn’t always easy. If you pick bright shades, getting them to match can be a challenge. However, there’s one simple trick that can simplify everything. By choosing neutral colours, you can avoid the risk of clashing hues. Neutrals are easy to mix and match, so you don’t have to worry about getting it wrong. Get yourself some staple pieces from labels like Camilla and Marc. Once you’ve built up a selection of go-to neutral pieces, you’ll find that putting together sophisticated outfits is a breeze. Try putting different neutrals together, instead of just wearing one colour.

Get a Good Fit

If there’s one thing that makes a huge difference to how chic you look, it’s how your clothes fit. Well-fitting clothes don’t have to be skin-tight or close-fitting, but they should sit on your body in the way that they’re intended to. Of course, off-the-rack clothes can’t be tailored for every body. But you can change that by getting your clothes tailored. It doesn’t cost much and can make a big difference to how your clothes fit. Whether it’s hemming some pants or bringing in the waist of a dress, tailoring ensures your clothes work for you.

Shop for Quality Materials

What your clothes are made of really does matter. You can see the difference when you compare cheaper, often manmade materials with materials that are high-quality and often made from natural fibres. If you want to ensure you choose quality materials, consider options like cotton, wool, leather, or even silk. Quality materials don’t necessarily have to be very expensive, but it is worth investing a little bit more in material that not only looks good but will also last longer. Plus, high-quality materials are often more ethical and eco-friendly.

Craft Reliable Outfits

Sometimes you don’t have time to figure out a new outfit and what goes together with what. When you just want to get dressed quickly and step out the door looking chic and sophisticated, it’s useful to have some reliable go-to outfits. Knowing in advance that a particular blouse goes together with a particular skirt can make it much easier to get dressed. And if you want to shake things up a little, you can always add accessories or wear something in a slightly different way.

Looking sleek and sophisticated could be much easier than you think. Remembering a few handy tips could uplift your style.
