We all have those one or two outfits that always flatter your figure and make us feel fabulous, but those kind of clothes are hard to come by. Thankfully, it is possible to ensure that you look good whatever you’re wearing. You just have to think like a stylist before you get dressed. Don’t have a stylist on hand to help you put? Don’t worry! Here are some of their best tips to make sure you look good in any outfit:

Tailor Your Clothes Unless you’re rich enough to have all of your clothes specially made for you, you’re going to buy off the peg, and that means that it’s unlikely any of your outfits will be a perfect fit. After all, clothes off the rack are designed to fit a wide range of shapes and sizes. What this means for you, if you want to look good in all of your outfits, is that you need to have your clothes professionally tailored. Sounds expensive right? Well, it doesn’t have to be, just look for a local dry cleaner who also offers seamstress services, and it’ll only set you back a few bucks per garment to look perfect. 

Choose the Right Bra Womens underwear comes in a mind-boggling array of sizes and styles, so it’s hardly surprising that so many ladies are getting it wrong. This is a real shame because having the right underwear can make or break an outfit, especially when it comes to the bust. For example, a seamless bra will look great under a T-shirt or a silky dress, whereas a lace bra will look great under a sheer shirt of the same color. Not only that but wearing a bra that has been professionally measured for you will lift your bust and make you look slimmer in pretty much any outfit you choose.

If you’ve put an outfit together and it looks okay, but you’re just not sure about it, raid your accessories drawer. Leave the dull pieces behind and go for the big, bold statement jewelry that will catch the eye. You should nearly always try to wear it near your best features to draw attention to them, but accessories can also be used to disguise problem areas sometimes. For example, placing a belt around the waist will nip you in and create the illusion of an hourglass figure and wearing a headscarf will disguise a bad hair day.

Work on Your Hair I know it’s easier to just run a brush through your hair and then head out when you’ve just got up, and you have a busy day ahead of you, but if you take the time to make your hair look good, even if you’re wearing a less than impressive outfit, you’ll instantly look better and so will your clothes. If people can tell you’ve spent time on your hair, they automatically assume the same must be true of your outfit, and they will look at it in a slightly different way.

Find the Perfect Pants Pants are the cornerstone of many a good outfit. If you can find a pair of jeans or ankle cut dress pants that hug your butt, skim your thighs and lengthen your legs, then whatever else you style them with, you are guaranteed to look and feel great.

Throw on Some Heels

Have you noticed that you immediately feel more confident when you put on your prettiest pair of  high heel pumps? It’s not at all surprising because not only do heels make for a more shapely calf, but they also elongate the legs and make them seem slimmer. So, if your outfit isn’t doing it for you, try switching out your ballet flats for a super sexy pair of heels, and everything will be right again.

Match Your Shoes and Stockings If you never feel that you look good in a skirt because your legs are a bit shorter than you would like, buy matching shoes and stockings or tights and you will instantly lengthen your legs, even when you aren’t wearing heels.

Shoulders back, Head Up and Smile Of course, it might not be your clothes or the way you see yourself that’s the problem – it might be your posture. If you have poor posture, you run the risk of looking bloated, short and hunched over, which is never a good look no matter what you’re wearing. So, put on that outfit that’s been giving you trouble, pull back your shoulders, lift your head up high and put a smile on your face. I bet you’ll notice a huge improvement in the way you look!
