Starting from an early age, we begin looking at the fashion magazines and tabloids for our fashion inspiration. Celebrities are trendsetters and can easily start huge fads by wearing an outfit in public. Some of you may be left wondering how to dress in the latest trendy threads if you don’t have an A-lister’s bank account balance, so follow these tips to become fashion forward on a budget.
Prepare yourself to spend a lot of time shopping
Finding great deals on chic clothes is no easy task, and will take some time if you’re looking to buy great clothing. Make sure that when you go shopping you aren’t in a rush, and have enough time to sift through all of the racks at quite a few different stores.
Look in stores that you may have never been in, and don’t be afraid to browse at a store that doesn’t look quite like your style. Remember that if you’re only shopping at the most popular stores in the mall, and picking out the pieces the mannequins are modeling, you won’t be the only one wearing that outfit the next time you go out on the town.
Buy staple items first
Before you opt for that bright yellow dress with the large pink polka-dots, make sure you have your basics in line first. A few must haves are the basic white and black shirts without any embellishments, a classy blazer, and some great fitting jeans. These items can be dressed up or down depending on how you style them and should be the beginning of your wardrobe.
You don’t need to dress in all staple items at once, but it’s easy to throw a great ensemble together when you only have to worry about finding one statement piece. Decide on which staple item you’re going to wear and dress it up or down however you’d like using your more unique and flashy attire.
Learn to accessorize
Often times it isn’t the clothing that makes an outfit fabulous, but the accessories that go along with it. The great part about using this method to look like you’re red carpet ready is that costume jewelry is usually pretty inexpensive, and can help you style staple closet items in many different ways.
According to newlookus.com, you could glam up a head-to-toe sweat suit simply by wearing it with a pair of large and in charge earrings. Finding unique pieces of jewelry helps take any ordinary outfit and make it look more than glamorous. Don’t forget to use all types of accessories such as sunglasses, jewelry, scarves, and purses to spice up your look.
Learning to dress like a celebrity is no easy task, especially when you’re not equipped with your own glam squad and personal shopper, but it can be done. Learn to take your time finding the perfect pieces to complete your closet and finding new and unique ways to wear the clothes you have.
Eyeglasses have traditionally been associated with nerdy people who are stereotyped as socially challenged. This opinion has changed over the years, however. The truth is that some people wear eyeglasses simply because they need them physically, else they can’t see! More than than that, though, the eyeglasses industry has reached a point that the products have become well designed and fashionable.a
And who better to rock those glasses and serve as models than celebrities?
Of course, eyeglasses are not a one-size-fits all accessory. In order to actually look good wearing them – health reasons aside – you have to know how to choose the frame that fits your face shape best. Seeta Singh, optician at Your Eyes Opticians, explains:
The shapes of faces greatly impacts the styles and shapes of frames to complement one’s face.
An oval-shaped face needs a rectangular frames to shorten and widen the face, while a square-shaped face needs oval and deeper frames to soften the outline of the face. Heart-shaped faces do well with a rimless or semi-rimless to minimize the width of the temple.
While you may not be a Hollywood celebrity, you can choose your eyeglasses to give you that glam look as well. Let’s take a look at bespectacled celebrities that will give you some inspiration.
This is one classy lady we all love not only for her acting but for her ageless beauty. In this photo, she wears frames which are squarish and yet a little round along the edges. This is perfect for her face shape, which is oblong and longish. The shape of the glasses break up the long lines of her face, emphasizing her beauty even more.
Lupita Nyong’o made waves with her performance in 12 Years a Slave, and her public appearances, together with her intelligent speeches, have made her a darling in the eyes of the public. This photo was taken during the MTV Movie Awards night, and her eyeglasses are the perfect example of how the color of the frame makes a difference.
Seeta Singh of Your Eyes Opticians also says that “colors to compliment the skin are also every important – the same frame in the wrong color does not look as good. You try to match the frames to the skin and eyes, as well as the hair. It all comes together when you color code.”
Jennifer Aniston is another celebrity whom we all love, with her pretty face and charming personality. Her face is square-shaped, so the perfect frame for her is something that is wider than the widest part of her face – that balances out the proportion. No one can deny that she is rocking these glasses!
Anne Hathaway’s oval-shaped face is perfectly complemented by this square frame, which also draws attention to her beautiful eyes. Notice the color tones of the frame, which also suits her skin color. If you’re lucky enough to have a similarly shaped face, look for a pair of glasses like this one, and you’re sure to look great!
Scarlett Johansson has a rare diamond-shaped face, which is best paired with top-heavy frames. These include semi-rimless glasses. Why is this the case? These types of frames draw attention to the eyes, which then give the area more width. The result is a more balanced look.
If you want to look great in glasses as these celebrities do, before you go to an optician to have eyeglasses fitted, you may want to determine if the optician is fashion-conscious. Otherwise, you might end up with ill-fitting glasses that don’t complement your face shape, your eye color, and skin color. You also should not hesitate to bring up your preferences – after all, it’s you who’s going to wear those glasses!
