Conquering the art of looking cool is one of the most challenging and cryptic pursuits that can take a lifetime to get your hands around it. But who is willing to wait that long. There has to be an easier way. You have parties to attend, people to see and places to explore. Let’s master the skill of looking fashionably cool and fresh in 10 easy steps.
First come Jackets: oh yes! Get yourself a classic leather or denim jacket. Avoid sequins or bells or studs for that matter. Since it’s an everyday wear, keep it simple and sophisticated. Avoid colours, Stick to neutrals if you want.
Push your stellitoes at the back of your closet and replace the now empty shelves with menswear-inspired mules, brogues and ankle boots. High heels are too high and overrated for such places and people.
Put your hair styler, straightening rods and curls away from your dresser. When we are talking about being cool, we are entertaining the notion of all messy, curly, wavy, bed head hair. Not a suggestion, a requirement!
Never don yourself head to toes from a same Designer. Ever heard of mix and match? Yes, Then do it. If you are looking like a 90s hippie then trust me you are doing everything right.
Denim is cool attire Staple. So stock it up as much as you can. Opt for a relaxed jean jacket, nothing cropped or too fitted, cut-off shorts, an oxford shirt and a heap of blue and black jeans in slim straight leg, skinny or boyfriend cuts will do.
To achieve the ultimate knack of putting on cool outfits, learn to pair classic clothes in new varieties. Tuck in an unbuttoned oxford shirt in your pants, flip your shirt around backward, and pair unexpected colours and tones. It’ll all bring the same result.
Let the hats do their magic. But before to swing the wand to do its trick, make sure you know the spell. Go for the shape that suits your face well, otherwise you’ll not be sure if you’re wearing the hat or the hat is wearing you.
Let your sophistication take a nap and leave your edgy handbags to rest. Cool girls could care less and cat more. Bring out your nondescript black clutch, a basic carryall or something vintage to go with you all cool look.
Lift up cool outfits with neutral tones and shades- black, white, grey, navy, camel brown, plump. Add in pinch of vibrancy strategically in a way with trench coat or a hat or a clutch.
Think out of the box. Don’t go with the trend. Wear what you think will turn eyes. Set trends, stop following them.
