6 Styling Mistakes You Can Easily Fix

Favourites 26

From selecting an outfit for day-to-night to feeling underdressed for a big event, there are certain reoccurring wardrobe dilemmas that crop up. And unless you have a crack squad of stylists around you 24/7, chances are you’ve fallen prey to some of the most common. But consider them a thing of the past thanks to our easy solutions to the six most pressing sartorial problems…

Problem: You won’t have time to get changed

Solution: Add one statement piece

Whether you’re heading straight from the office to a girls’ night, or from all-day shopping to drinks, picking a look to suit multiple occasions is a task. We suggest sticking to a minimalist base look – think head-to-toe black or neutrals, unfussy shapes and simple lines – and adding a jacket to elevate the look when necessary. Add a coloured leather jacket to a shirt and pencil skirt for slick style or an on-trend kimono to jeans and a tee to bring your outfit to life.


Problem: You don’t know how to wear that print

Solution: Foget matching it, just clash it

If that printed silk shirt is still unworn in your wardrobe, it’s time to forget trying to find the right piece to match its busy design. Instead, combine with clashing prints, colour or gingham for a fashion-forward approach that’s so-wrong-it’s-right. Try everything from florals and tartan to stripes and spots for an eclectic, fashion pack-approved look.


Problem: You feel overdressed

Solution: Keep your beauty look natural

Paring back your beauty look to balance out a statement outfit is a noteworthy style tip from well-dressed girls across the Channel. Dishevelled locks, barely-there make-up and nude nails will keep even the most show-stopping look grounded, so if you show up to an event feeling overdone, wipe off that lippy and mess up your hair for a more Parisian-inspired finish.


Problem: You feel underdressed

Solution: Add metallics

Looking to jazz up a boring outfit? Channel your inner magpie and make sure you always have some metallics on retainer to elevate your look. Silver bombers, brassy boots and gold accessories can transform even the most low-key of outfits, so invest in a statement metallic jacket or pair of heels to throw on in case of emergency.


Problem: You’re bored of your clothes

Solution: Belt it

From relaxed dresses to boxy blazers, a well-placed belt can breathe new life into a lot – whether it’s an oversized obi belt or thin hip-skimming style, cinching something at the waist can instantly make it look that bit better. We suggest a try-on session with all the designs that have been relegated to the back of the wardrobe to see if a little waist pinching can transform them.


Problem: Your feet won’t last all day

Solution: Invest in mid-height heels

Got a meeting at 11am and date-night at 7pm? We all know the perils of trying to brave staggering heels for the entirety of the day. But rejoice in the mid-height heel trend that is staying put this season, making kitten or block styles the best investment you could make. Infinitely more comfortable than stilettos and indisputably smarter than flats, everything from sock boots to slingbacks will carry you from A to B with polish.
