Lazy Guide to Staying Fly

16 Oct

Too many people let their looks slide with the excuse, “I just don’t have the time or energy”. That my friends is the sorriest excuse I’ve ever heard. It doesn’t take a lot of time or effort to look pulled together – just a few seconds of preparation.

  • Start by purging your closet of anything that doesn’t flatter you. If you don’t own any unflattering pieces you can’t wear them right?

Solange Knowles knows mixing prints works for her so she does it often

  • Next find a uniform and wear it constantly. This could be a color scheme like all black with a pop of color or a clothing type such as knee-length dresses with 3/4 sleeves. Stack your closet with variations of this “uniform” so that you’re always ready with your go-to look.
  • Invest in just two pairs of good shoes – one all black and one that matches your skin tone. I dare you to find an outfit that neither of these will complement.

This otherwise non-descript black dress is taken up a notch with either of these statement necklaces

  • Get three pieces of statement jewelry. Two blingy necklace and a strong bangle should do the trick. When you’re outfit is otherwise blah this is a two-second solution to make it pop.

Looking put together 24/7 isn’t as time consuming as it may seem. Start with this basic guide and adjust as necessary to fit your lifestyle!
