Today is Scarlet’s tips! Style tips for every person. Scarlet has taught us a few tricks when it comes to organizing and caring for our clothes + accessories as well as how to build a professional wardrobe that makes sense for our lifestyle.
Wick: I know you guys think about home improvement all the time, but have you thought about how to step it up a notch in the fashion department? Scarlet’s joining us to elaborate! This is Fashion tips with Scarlet! Tip one: invest in the best you can afford. (Outfit #1)
Scarlet: Invest in one signature piece each season. Just like in your home, quality makes a big difference and is usually a more sustainable choice. Categories worth splurging on are a pair of handmade leather shoes, a densely woven cashmere sweater, a tailored wool coat or a slim fitting suit you can wear as separates.
Wick: Tip two: Mix high and low. (Outfit #2)
Scarlet: Too often I see people treat the more expensive things as precious leaving them to gather dust in the closet–don’t be afraid to wear those quality items you splurged on! Mix them with “low” which simply means less expensive or mass produced. For example, always have a pack of white t-shirts to pull from, they don’t have to be expensive but a fresh white t-shirt always looks smart next to a tailored pant and sneaks. This blend achieves the look of effortless style.
Wick: Tip three: Play with pattern and texture! (Outfit #3)
Scarlet: A little bit of pattern (think wallpaper) or texture (think rugs or pillows) can go a long way in your wardrobe (or in your home!). If you are new to pattern, pick something monochromatic in a color palette you are already comfortable with like dark grey houndstooth. If you are averse to pattern all together but want to mix it up, try a new texture like suede, angora, velvet or corduroy. This will add depth to your look without being flashy. Take a look at your industry. Is everyone dressing a certain way? Use these tips to step it up a notch. Stand out in a sea of black and you will get noticed. More importantly, you get dressed every single day, so have some fun with it!
