With styles changing with the seasons, it can be hard to keep up with the latest trends – especially if it requires some sort of expense on your part. There are some pieces that are timeless and will last the test of the years in your wardrobe, whereas other clothing items need to be tossed as soon as the fad is over. It’s just the way the world works. Getting to grips with the staples that need to be in your closet, jewellery case or makeup bag can seriously aid you with this.
Big, statement pieces of jewellery such as chunky necklaces and big, dangly earrings are only on trend for the amount of time that celebrities will wear them. They’re worth holding onto, because they resurface every couple of years, but generally speaking they’re not for the long-run. Investing in a good pair of diamond earrings can see you through the years, or you could try making some of your own/getting some made with diamonds from http://www.diamondregistry.com/2-carat-diamond-price.htm to save on a bit of money. While this isn’t necessarily on a budget, it is a cost that can be spread out over the years and worn numerous times. Simple diamond earrings (or cubic zirconia) never go out of style.
There are some colours and shades which never really dip out of the fashion scene. Picking a good, solid red lipstick, as can be found on http://www.vogue.co.uk/gallery/10-best-red-lipsticks-mac-ruby-woo-chanel-pirate, is a surefire way to keep a classy look on hand whenever you need it. There are different shades of red which all bring out different tones in skin, teeth and hair; if you are looking for a shade which doesn’t make your teeth look yellow, you need to pick one with blue undertones. If you are looking for a red that makes you glow and gives you warmth to your skin, you should pick one with orange undertones. Ultimately, go for one that suits your style and can be mixed and matched with different outfits in your wardrobe.
As much as the LBD (Little Black Dress) has been bandied around over the years as the staple to go to, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the thing that you have in your wardrobe. It’s true that black is the most forgiving colour for a lot of reasons, but that shouldn’t be the reason that you are wearing it. If you know that it’s too dark for you, or you prefer a bit more colour in your life, swap it up with another staple block-coloured dress or suit that you can go to when you don’t have anything else. The great thing about it is that if you have something all in one colour, it can be accessorized to your heart’s desire. Black dresses give the option to style up with bright lipsticks and dramatic makeup, whereas other colours call for a different fashion on the face. It’s the one item of clothing that will be staying in your wardrobe for a while.
