If you are anything like me, you love to be the attention grabber every time you enter a room or walk down the street. You want to stand out and not blend in. You love to do this by mesmerizing the people around you with your impeccable styling skills. You want everything to look flawless. You want everyone to turn their heads to steal a second glance at you, admire you and wonder, “How does she do that?” “Someone looks fine today.” “I wish I could dress like her.” “I am so jealous right now.”
It is a misconception to think that in order to turn heads towards your outfit, you need to go over the top with it. You must know that it requires only a little or almost no effort to look absolutely stunning and yet nothing too extravagant. Here are a few tips on being the centre of attention wherever you go or on your followers’ newsfeeds. Many celebs have been using these subtle tricks too and make a splash on media!
Fashion Tips That Will Make You The Center Of The Room
1. Trendy Infusions
It is not mandatory to follow each and every fashion trend just the way it is because sometimes you might not like a trend. When this happens don’t just follow the flock. You can always experiment with trends by infusing your personal style in it as long as it looks decent and appealing. This way you are on board with the latest trend but with new personalized twists that are sure to catch everyone’s eye.
2. Play With Patterns
Patterns may be either bold or subtle. Patterns will bring focus on one part of the outfit. Pair a few bold patterns with neutral or basic colors. The patterns speak loud and the neutral colors will tone it down giving you just the right amount of attention.
3. Feel the Rhythm
Rhythm is one of the principles of designs which is the patterned repetition of elements and that which creates flows. It moves the eyes in a pleasing manner and definitely an eye-catcher! Kendall Jenner used this little trick on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival 2015. Of course, you can re-create outfits with this trick by wearing light weight material clothing or something sheer. It doesn’t necessarily always have to be a skirt! A flowy top, pants or a cardigan works too.
4. Signature Accessory
More than often, a piece of accessory ties up the whole look all together. The most common one would be a neckpiece; statement jewelry. However it may be a hat, belt or bracelets that can also really bring together a really chic look! Choose a piece which is definite eye-catcher!
5. Bags Bags Bags!
How many of those days have we had when you just want to wear black from your head to toe? Possibly, a few. Your bags are not only meant to carry all your essentials. In fact, they can be the one that really compliments your outfit and make some heads turn! Style your plain or monochrome outfit with a bold colored or patterned bag. This will give off an effortless yet chic look.
6. Let the shoes do the talking
“A girl can never have too many shoes” and that is absolutely right! Shoes can be your best friend and really tie the whole look together. Last winter thigh-high boots were in vogue and everyone wanted to get hold of a pair! Many celebs make their sassy pair of shoes do the talking while the paparazzi follow them around. You can pair a crazy design pairs of shoes or of a bold contrasting color with your everyday outfit. The shoes demand attention!
Go with whatever suits your style for the day. But remember, a bold lip never fails. Whatever you opt for- smoky eye or contouring or natural look, make sure you nail it! You know what I mean fashionistas. We all watch makeup tutorials all day everyday so nailing any makeup look will not be that much of a task.
8. Highlight Your Best Assets
One of the reason why the Kardashians are so notable in the fashion industry is because they are not afraid to show their best assets. It’s not only about your behind, it may be your legs, curves, stomach or shoulders! It is very evident that a person is confident about certain parts of their bodies by showing them off. Many ladies love to stroll around in shorts with really sexy legs and some wear crop tops to show off their abs. Off-shoulder look is really trendy these days and the ladies are carrying out with a pride.
Play with a splash of colors that really grabs attention! It doesn’t necessarily mean that you must wear the brightest of the colors. You can follow one theme color for your whole outfit or pair up combination colors or contrasting ones. You may just put on a single piece of clothing of a different color to give off a signature look. It may be your jacket, skirt, shoes and more!
10. Don’t Go Overboard
Once you have styled your outfit, worn your accessories and are done with your makeup take a close look at yourself in the mirror and check if everything is in tune. Never go overboard with anything in hopes of being the eye catcher. You do not want people to look at you with disgust.
11. Dress Appropriately
Every occasion has its own unsaid dress code. Weddings, parties, festivals, graduation ceremonies, dates each have their own style to be honest. Lets be real you won’t be wearing a short, sequined black dress with smoky eyes and a red lip at a wedding. Right? Hope you get the drill. Make sure you are dressed appropriately for the event otherwise you could turn heads not because of your fashion sense but the lack of it. And if at all there is a strict dress code there is always a way to glam it up in your way.
12. Confidence Is The Key
Let’s face it, all of us know that one person who buys clothes from the local markets yet still looks way sophisticated and chic than the ones who wear all designer clothing. You may feel it is because they are either lucky to find those in a pile of clothes or that they really know what to wear. It is all about the confidence! They know what to wear because they are confident about it. They walk it off with such pride and great posture. It is that simple! Be you, be confident! The world is your ramp walk!
So, follow all the above tips with a perfect balance and every day you will be the center of attraction. Be bold and confident with whatever you wear. Do let me know if this works for you in the comments below.
