Look Impressive in a Jiffy: Smart Dressing Tips

25 Oct 2017

It’s an important meeting you need to rush. Now the first question is – ‘What do I wear today?’, along with other confusions such as is it ‘Formal or Informal?’ How do I look presentable without spending much time?  Let’s understand…

SMART WARDROBE MANAGEMENT TIPS

SORT AND ORGANIZE YOUR CLOTHES TO STAY AWAY FROM DAILY CHAOS

The first step is to stay organized – do not clutter, make a list of things you have and then sort them. It is important to know what all you have. If you are a working woman, your ‘work clothes’ should be easily reachable. Decide and prioritize where you spend most of your time in the day and based on that place your clothes in order of priority.

When in confusion it’s always easier to match prints with plainclothes whereas cloths with different patterns do not match. Try and have more plain clothes in your wardrobe and a few patterned ones.

Look for common colors in clothes as it helps in matching of clothes when in confusion, too many different colors do not go well.

Organize your accessories like shoes, bags, necklaces, earrings, make-up so that it is within easy access always. Without accessories, the overall look may look incomplete.

Please discard clothes you have not worn in last 6 months-1 year as there is a high probability that it is not your Personal Style and you will never wear those.  Those clothes occupy unnecessary space and hide clothes of your important usage.

Have a full-length mirror in your room so that you can get a view of your complete look.

INVEST IN ACCESSORIES TO LOOK CHIC AND PRESENTABLE IN LESS TIME WITHOUT MORE EFFORT

Accessories can make a dull dress look chic and can give you a  makeover on a boring day. Wear a bright necklace on a light top and vice versa to give a good Focal Point near your face.

Pearls can add instant sophistication and elegance for formal occasions.
Artificial, gold/silver chains, statement necklaces look great with any color of the outfit.
Bright matte lipsticks like red, maroon, red-orange look great on party evenings and special dates.

Scarves also add instant oomph-   leave them simply hanging.

CLEAR CONFUSION ABOUT FORMAL AND INFORMAL

If confused about formal or casual, understand the objective of meeting first and how you wish to appear. A basic collar is best to look formal, be it Indian or Western wear.

Round necks are supposed to be casual. You can further add the blazer or a simple third layer to look influential, credible and entrepreneurial.  This also helps in hiding any extra flab around the midriff.

DO QUICK AND EASY MAKE-UP

Do smart makeup. You don’t need hours in front of the mirror. Invest in good foundation compact. It is an important step to give a neat look to your face. Neat and fresh looking face always demands more attention than a tired and dull looking face.

Keep your foundation brush handy and apply it post moisturizer. You can also apply BB creams/oil free foundations depending on your skin type.

Highlight one feature on your face, be it lips or eyes.  The entire process should not take more than 5 minutes.

If hair is not in good condition or washed, please neatly tie them in a ponytail or bun. Good hair softening serums give that neat look and make your hair more manageable for bad hair days.

If going for a meeting you can also leave your hair open as long as they are not falling on the face. Have a lot of bob pins handy in summers to keep your hair away from the face.
