Written by Oni Joseph

This life is so simple to start wearing a cloth of iron. Why? I’m sure you’ll be confused about what this article is actually about. In a nutshell, it is about not dying before your actual ‘death’. At the end of this course, you’ll realize you have all you need to look elegant in your wardrobe, you just needed someone that will speak the sweet truth to you and here we go.

Simply, fashion is an art of bringing out the creativity in normalcy, in lieu to our gestures and fitness. Many do have difficulties whenever they are picking clothes or accessories to wear to occasions or casual outings. Eventually, they end up using unnecessary hours to decide on what to rock. With all of the decisions we have to make in a day, wondering if we look nice and stylish shouldn’t be one of them. It’s not if you should dress nice, (dressing nice should be your default), but how to dress nice every day without much thought and effort.

Getting dressed in the morning should be fun and energizing. You’re setting the tone for the rest of the day.

I know you’ve experienced otherwise countless times, because you’re careful of looking horrific. When you love your look, it makes you feel more confident, beautiful, and gives you that extra pep in your step.

So as to stop having this everyday battle with styling yourself when going out, let’s take a look at this checklist on simple ways to escape this usual headshot, and plan ahead of the day.

1. Does it fit?

This might sound incredibly simple, but many people leave the house with clothes that are too big or too small. Make sure your clothes fit you correctly, unless it’s intentional, like a boyfriend tee or slouchy sweater. You don’t want to go out looking like a bag full of shit.

2. Check the color coordinations.

Make sure the colors in your outfit complement each other and you! Look at the colors you’re wearing and review the palette. Is it subdued, bright, or contrasting?

Colors can affect your entire mood, so make sure the colors help your attitude. Each color has their own energy and vibe. If you’re feeling happy and excited, you wouldn’t want to squash that energy by wearing all black. Choose a color palette to suit your mood.

3. Distinctly detailed.

Do your clothes make your figure look great? This doesn’t only apply to your sexiest jeans, but every piece in your wardrobe. Every piece must flatter your shape, especially if you’re a public figure, that people pay full attention to each of their details.

4. Balance it up.

Whenever you’re styling up yourself, there is definitely this feeling you get when something is missing. You must ask yourself if the outfit is not confusing you or if it’s empowering your energy.

If you’re going for an item that is intentionally larger, make sure to balance it with a slimmer piece.

5. Your Outfit defines you.

Fashion styling on its own is branding. The way you dress is the way you’ll be addressed.

First impressions are everything, and it only takes an instant before one is formed. Give the impression you want. Whether you like it or not, people are going to judge you, so you might as well make it the judgment you want.

Which if these will help you make ? Have you ever had a fashion accident? Feel free to share in the comments section.

  1. So this may not count as a fashion accident… But I’ll share it anyways.. First off, “Always have a back up” cos sometimes shame and disgrace will just become your middle name.

    So this was late 2018, a friend was getting married, after buying the asoebi, creates, recreated and invented style in my head… Climbed sewing machine, and started sewining…Fast forward to wedding day, trust your one and only to give them “hot hot”
    It was time for the couple to enter, instead of me to stay in one place, I was jumping like frog up and down….until, I heared “kpa” first time, I ignored ( village people at work), second time, another sound. That is how the zip haf burst, all my whole back is in the open.. What happened, I didn’t see in the zip properly, and it had started losening
