Talking Pretty

I told you it would happen! The makeup tips post has been reincarnated into a fashion tips post. Here are three fashion tips that I live by and am ever grateful I learned.

The Sorority Girl Rule

I’m generally not a big fan of sorority girl fashion tips, but this is one every girl MUST know. It’s really simple: when dressing (especially dressing up to go out), you have to choose one: boobs or legs.

If you’re wearing a short skirt, cover up your cleavage. If you’re wearing a low cut top, wear jeans or something that covers your legs and butt sufficiently. Showing both legs and boobs is trashy and makes you look like you’re trying too hard. So don’t do it.

The Ankle Rule

Fun fact: wearing shoes or pants that cover  your ankles automatically makes you look shorter. Exposing them makes you look taller.

If you’re wearing skinny jeans and sandals and feel like too much is going on around your ankles, roll your jeans up to be ankle jeans and you’ll instantly appear taller. Wearing wedges with skinnies and want to up the effect? Same thing. It works wonders.

The Balancing Act

A quick way to look overdone-up is to have on too many colors and patterns between your clothes and your accessories. Wear bright accessories with neutral-colored clothes and neutral accessories with bright clothes.

Also: treat makeup as an accessory. Don’t go crazy with bold colors unless you’re outfit is toned down and/or it’s night time. Keeping a good balance between bolds and neutrals will make you look stylish but not overdressed.
