What is beautiful is relative. As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. But what matters first is how you feel and look on the inside. If you feel you look beautiful, it will definitely show and others will see the glow in you but if you feel otherwise, people will also sense it.
If you need help to look beautiful in whatever you are wearing. here is our style guide to help you feel like the queen you are… always.
1. Build a capsule wardrobe: A capsule wardrobe is a practice of editing your wardrobe down to your favourite clothes (clothes that fit your lifestyle + body right now). Remixing them regularly, shopping less often and more intentionally. A capsule wardrobe lets you get clear about what clothes work for your body type, your life and your style. So that wherever you are headed, be it to a corporate environment, school, church, drinks’ with the girls etc. you would always have what to wear and be confident that you are beautiful in what you are wearing.
2. Prep your skin and wear good makeup, if you have to: This harmattan season requires extra skincare. Here are our tips on how to take care of your skin. Make sure it’s not looking white or flaky. If you decide to wear makeup, make sure it’s your skin tone and you are not being overly loud about it. With everyday looks, it is best to be minimal in your use of it.
3. Good hairdo is a must: It was said that the crown of a woman is her hair. This is so true because no matter what you are wearing if your hair is not well done, it is almost like you have done nothing and it is vice versa. When you have good hairdo, it is easy to feel and look good beautiful in your outfit. Knowing your face shape and experimenting with hairstyle to know what suits you is a good place to start. Once you have known what works, you can repeat it over and over. Having wigs for a bad hair day is always a good idea too.
4. Invest in quality over quantity: This is paramount in every kind of beauty and shopping buy. You should also know that quality does not equate to expensive. You can get quality clothing items in thrift and get bad quality in high-end boutiques as well (but less likely). So it is important for you to always choose quality. That way you are assured that all the items you have are of good quality and you will surely look beautiful in them.
5.Make sure the clothes fit nicely: Speaking of this, you need to understand your body type. When you know this, it will be easy to understand what fits you beautifully and stick with them. You will also come to terms that just because it fits your friend does not mean that it will be good for you too. It’s also important to have a good tailor at hand too. he/she will help you to alter and amend your clothes to fit you beautifully.
