“Personal style is about a sense of yourself, a sense of what you believe in and wearing what you like.” – Ralph Lauren.
Styling is all about feeling comfortable and confident in what you wear. However, the “I have nothing to wear” dilemma makes it challenging to pick an outfit for the day. So, there you are, standing in front of the wardrobe searching for something which is comfortable yet gives an effortless look.
Perhaps, it happens more often than you realize. Selecting even the simplest of your attires can seem like a daunting task.
But, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered!
Below are some “effortless” styling ideas that you can try and look gorgeous every day.
- Go Monochrome
The first idea is to try monochrome outfits. It is one of the easiest looks that you can try. Not to mention, it adds an aesthetic appeal to your overall style. You can even select the colors according to your mood.
For instance, if you want to look attractive, you can go with the shades of black, brown, beige, mauve, and others. Likewise, if you feel going “extra,” you can go with more bold colors such as pink, neon, blue, green, purple, and more.
The color choice is totally up to you. To add an element of comfort, you can pair the outfit with loose trousers or a blazer.
- Go Classic
By classic, we mean a black sweater or hoodie, straight-leg jeans, and ballet flats. This outfit idea is perfect if you are going for a go-to style. To make this outfit more classic, you can replace the straight-leg jeans with skinny jeans.
This will surely give an effortless look to your attire, plus it will also make you look young. Not to forget, this style is ideal for showcasing your accessories.
For example, you can wear a V-neck sweater and add a pendant or necklace to elevate the overall look.
- Go Trend-setter
Looking effortless does not mean that you can’t be a trend-setter. Instead, it is the perfect way to show your fellows how to blend style with coziness.
For instance, you can wear your dress in winter with tights to create a unique style. Or, if you have a sweater dress, you can try layering another skirt to create a new look. Similarly, you can pair a corset with a bust cut cropped hoodie to look foxie.
Simply try mixing and matching while ensuring the utmost level of comfort in your outfits.
- Go Cozy
When in doubt, you must try going casual and cozy. Now, the question is, what outfit offers you both? Yes, you guessed it correctly! Hoodies, cropped or not, are great for an effortless look. Not to forget, you can easily find casual wear for women online. So, you are left with no excuse for not having anything to wear.
Nevertheless, if you want to go cozy, you have two options. First, you can “be a sock,” i.e., you can get an extra-large hoodie, pair it with sweatpants and sneakers. And, you are all good to go!
Second, you can get a cropped hoodie, pair it with a skirt, skinny jeans, and boots. Plus, you can add a coat over the top. Believe it or not, but this look will surely make heads turn.
- Go Floral
Who said florals are only for summers? Instead, florals are timeless and can be worn in any season. However, you need to consider a few points to style floral outfits correctly.
For instance, if you are wearing a flower dress, make sure the cardigan is plain. Or, do not pair florals with any other print. Likewise, you can style a floral top with a furry coat. It will ensure that you stay warm while also looking flawless.
You can also wear blazer and “dad” sneakers with floral attire. In simple terms, the styling options are endless. So, you must give this idea a try!
Tip: Not only florals, but you can also try this style with other prints such as animal, polka dots, geometric, and others. These will help in adding a fresh vibe to your attire.
- Go Formal
Searching for a good formal dress could really be challenging. Your outfit should add to your confidence without making you look too bossy.
The easiest way to get such a look is by styling knit sweaters, particularly high-neck (turtleneck) sweaters, with a blazer. You can go with a monochrome look; however, most people prefer color coordinated styles such as a white sweater with a black blazer. You can try a leather pencil skirt, checked pants, or skinny jeans to complete the look.
It will give a very polished and chic look while boosting your confidence.
- Go Chill
If you search carefully in your closet, especially through old clothes, you might find a long (oversized) knitted top. Although the top looks stunning, you may or may not have an idea about how to style it.
If you can relate to this situation, your worries end here. As oversize is in trend and probably will stay for several more years, you should try styling this top.
To style this, you wear the top with trousers and long boots. To upgrade the style, you can make use of accessories. For instance, you can add a belt over to add more curves. Similarly, you can wear a hat or beanies to make the outfit look chill.
- Go Trench
Talking about effortless styling and not including trench coats is simply not possible. You can style trench coats in numerous ways. The simplest way is a trench coat, dress, and high heels. Needless to say, you can never go wrong with this style.
Apart from this, you can also add a funky element to your outfit by styling a trench coat with jeans and a hoodie. Similarly, you can go with skirts, boots, and a black-tee look to add an edge to your outfit.
Wrapping It All Up!
These are a few styling ideas that you can try to make your look- effortless every day. Understand that style is more about comfort and not merely about outfits. So experiment with different styles and find the one that matches your style!
