10 Resolutions for every fashionista to make
by TEHMINA KHALED
So you focus all your time, money and energy in carefully planning your wardrobe but still, on an occasional bad day, you are caught looking less-than groovy... Weíve got serious help for you. Here are 10 fashion commandments that every fashion savvy female must follow.
Invest some moolah in an ultra-luxe dress
We all know itís an actual paradise regained to find fashionable garments at bargain basement prices; but once in a while, dressing up in a dreamy designer dress can bring out the real woman in you. Since the drapes and the fits are really custom made for you, a designer dress serves as a fabulous flaw fixer. Also the feel of wearing something expensive and so stylish immediately surrounds you with oodles of grace and charm.
Create a stellar style of your own
Itís natural to fall prey to whatever the newly fangled fad commands, but beware of being a slave to trends. Exude your own magnetic aura in a style that suits you like no other.
Wear bold and bright hues
In a survey conducted on 200 women, it was found that the ones who wore bright colours felt more confident about themselves. So why not drape yourself with desirable bold and beautiful shades for a guaranteed feel great factor?
Enthrall with your signature scent
The sense of smell is the most powerful of all senses. Instead of splashing yourself in loads of different fragrances, find one that befits your mood totally and gives you a sensuous feel - and always wear it.
Dress in a delightful manner, wherever you go
There can be no excuse for wearing a frumpy outfit just because you are only going down to the local grocery shop. Be a dream damsel in dressing appropriately whatever the occasion and whichever the place. Believe us, your primo image will soon be the talk of the town.
Never be caught dead in ugly shoes
Your footwear can literally make or break your image. Also wearing ugly shoes with your lovely dress is akin to denying justice to its beauty. Invest in some really good pairs of shoes. Ideally, a woman must have six basic pairs in her shoe rack - a pair of sneakers (for fun and outdoor activities), stilettos (for glam parties), boots (for office and corporate meetings), sandals (for everyday use), flip flops (for beach days) and flats (for casual going out).
Treat your monthly pedicure as a religion
Weíll term it a cardinal sin to flaunt feet which are an eyesore. There cannot be a sight uglier than chipped nailpaint or cracked heels. Do indulge in the luxury of a pedicure at least once a month. Depending upon the condition of your feet, you can go for foot conditioning or a paraffin pedicure.
Take pains to coordinate your accessories
It isnít a good idea to adopt a devil-may-care attitude towards little details like accessories. Try and coordinate your bags with your shoes. Also take care to see whether your belt matches your outfit properly.
Save for your fashion fetishes
There are times when you spot something which makes you go weak in the knees, but what shall thou do if your wallet doesnít allow you to go for it? Every month, save a fraction of your earning to give in to what we call impulse buys. A word of advice though: itís still a good idea to sleep over and analyse if the buy is actually worth the hard saved cash.
Have a real great piece of jewellery in your wardrobe
A womanís personality can be elevated immensely by wearing a great piece of jewellery. It could be an eye-catching pendant, a gem studded brooch or a string of pearls. There can be nothing more exciting and feminine.
