6 Ways to Dress More Fashionably This Year

Have you always been behind the curve of the fashion industry? Do your friends constantly poke fun at you for your eternal tee-and-jeans combo? You don't have to suffer fashion ineptitude anymore. Here are just a few ways to start developing a sense of flair and fun.


1. Know the Trends

You don't necessarily have to follow them; just learn what they are and what to expect when you go shopping. For example, metallics are very "in" right now, so you'll see lots of shining silvers and gleaming golds in department stores nationwide.


2. Embrace Layers

Layering is the time-honored tradition of turning even basic pieces of clothing into fashionable outfits. If you color-coordinate your tops, tunics and leggings, you'll look like you've put an admirable amount of care into your wardrobe.


3. Build a Foundation

Speaking of basics, make sure your closet has the bare bones of a functional wardrobe. It's hard to be fashionable if you're lacking even the necessities like a little black dress or a nice pair of trousers. Shoes are another good thing to stock up on; you'll want to have at least one casual pair and one dressy pair.


4. Accessorize

This is where expanding your wardrobe gets fun. What kind of jewelry collection do you want to build? There's no right or wrong answer here; some people like loud, colorful costume jewelry while others prefer the expensive and subtle kind. It's all up to you.


5. Find a Tailor

A good tailor can help you with everything from an altered wedding dress to a custom-fit suit. It's worth having one on your contacts list. If you can't afford a tailor, at least learn how to sew on your own so you can fix holes and loose threads in your favorite pair of pants.


6. Experiment

At the end of the day, there's no substitute for finding and rocking your own style, so don't be afraid to experiment. If you've always wanted a mohwak, go for it! If you've dreamed of dressing up like your favorite Bollywood stars, create a design of mehndi on your arms and wrap up in a sari. You can visit places like Craftsvilla to get you started.


These are just a few ways to liven up your closet and start taking chances with your wardrobe. No one likes wearing the same thing every day, so why not do something entirely different?
