10 Tips to Elevate Your Style

Elevating your style is extremely simple. However, looking stylish and put together doesn't always mean wearing the latest trends. Nor does it mean spending money on designer brands. It can be simple traditional wear like plazo dress or sharara dress. You can amp it up by experimenting with material, cuts and accessories.

The best thing about style is that you get to experiment and play around with it. And looking chic, classy and well-dressed, and feeling good about your attire can be as simple as putting on a well-fitted jacket over an all-black outfit. In addition, you can level up your style by making simple changes to your basic everyday outfits with some easy styling tips on how to elevate your style mentioned in the article below.


Tip 1: Invest in Good Quality Basics


When trying to elevate our style, you need a few essential pieces: good-quality jeans, a plain black and white t-shirt, the classic LBD, a well-fitted jacket and some shoes like open-toed sandals, stilettos, boots and platforms. Of course, you can wear these items differently to put together a look. For example, you can wear the same jeans with a Kurti or a blazer. However, change your shoes, change your makeup, and have an effortlessly distinctive look. Since basics make or break your whole look, it's essential to invest in good pieces.


Tip 2: Dress for Your Body Type


Learning to dress for your body type is a life-changing moment. You look far more polished and elegant when you're wearing clothes that work together to flatter the specific body type you have. For example, a plazo dress looks good on an inverted triangle body type. In contrast, bodycon dresses flatter an hourglass body type. So you must know what works for you and what doesn't. If you are in doubt, use an app to try out a style virtually. See how it looks on you. And voila- you have your dream dress.

Tip 3: Accessorise Accordingly


An effortless way to spice up a plain and basic outfit is by adding a few accessories to it. If you like sticking to classic outfits, you can indeed experiment with accessories and add elements of whatever is on-trend. It is a safe way to be trendy without going over the top. Even a boring t-shirt and jeans outfit could be fashionable with the correct accessories. Try playing around with bags, shoes, jewellery, or hair accessories the next time you get dressed.


Tip 4: Befriend Your Tailor


Often you come across excellent deals on a piece of clothing, only to find out that it's too big on you. If it's too big, too lengthy or too bulky, you can always bring it to a tailor who can alter it to perfection. Having a good tailor who understands your body type can make the most significant difference in the fit of your clothes. Consider custom tailoring online to get your clothing altered quickly and easily from the comfort of your home.


Tip 5: Dress in Monochrome


An effortless way to look stylish and classy is dressing in the same tones. It means that your top, bottoms, and outerwear fall in the same colour tones. It can immediately make you look like a million bucks without putting too much effort into determining which colour goes with which.


Tip 6: Your Undergarments Matter


What you wear under your clothes makes a big difference in how the clothes appear on you. Your undergarments must complement whatever you wear so that there are no visible bra straps or panty lines. Additionally, if you can, invest in some shapewear that isn't super restricting. Nude undergarments go with anything and everything, but stay away from bright colours like pink, blue or even black as these can peek through clothes and look odd.


Tip 7: Incorporating Culture


When dressing up in Indian traditional outfits like a plazo dress or sharara dress, add a touch of the culture that they represent. For example, a plazo dress or Patiala suit would look great with jhumkas and braided hair. Similarly, a sharara dress would look great with a bindi, bangles and loose curls.


Tip 8: Always Wear Steamed Clothes


Wearing ironed or steamed clothes can take your outfit from looking unkept to fabulous within minutes. Admittedly, it is annoying and time-consuming, but it does make a difference. If you despise ironing, invest in a hand-held steamer or, for the most significant life hack, spray a wrinkle-release spray on your clothing and witness the magic happen.


Tip 9: Makeup, Hair and Nails etc


Elevating your style and outfit to look put-together and stylish won't be enough if your hairstyle does not suit you or your makeup is too loud. If you ignore grooming, your overall appearance is unkept. Maintain your hair, wear makeup that complements you and the outfit and pay attention to small details like the condition of your fingernails and toenails. Whiten your teeth and wear a good perfume to be on top of the game.


Tip 10: Embellishments


You can elevate a basic item, be it a little black dress, or a traditional plazo dress, from boring into something gorgeous by adding a few embellishments. For example, adding a zari border to a traditional cotton flared skirt can look beautiful and formal. Likewise, adding rhinestones to a simple sharara dress can make it go from party wear to wedding wear.

Remember, your style expresses your personality, so have fun and be creative.
