1 – Nothing makes you look prettier in whatever clothes you wear than glowing skin, positive energy, and being physically fit. Make the #1 priority on your 2019 list being the healthiest and happiest YOU possible.
4 – Get to know your body really well and what clothes and shoes you look good in. Be super honest with yourself about what you don’t look good in. Follow your heart and forget about what is trendy and ‘IN’ each season if it doesn’t suit your body type. Trends are put in place by the fashion business to get you to buy new clothes every season. Create your own trend by looking fantastic in what works well on your unique body.
5 – Old can be new. If you are on a budget, you do like to follow trends each season, and a season’s trend works well on your body type, the good news is…trends go in and out of style, so you can usually pull out some old styles from days gone by instead of buying new things. In 2019, you can either buy new or pull out some old pieces that have fringe, are crocheted or tie-dyed, have animal prints, or have big blocks of neon or bold, cheerful color, as those will be some of the ‘IT’ looks in the final year before we hit 2020.
7 – Nothing adds more beauty to the female form than a belt to accentuate your waist. Wear dark belts to make your waist look even smaller and hips look curvier. For added comfort and even more dramatic accentuation of the female form, find yourself a good stretch belt with a decorative buckle or latch that pulls you in and supports your abdomen, basically doing the same job as shape wear, except it’s worn on the outside.
8 – Hats and caps are one of my most highly recommended accessories in 2019. They can bring instant fun and fashion to your look, not to mention, save you a lot of stress and time styling your hair on days when you are rushed or are having a bad hair day. Bucket hats were on the fashion runways to show off trends for 2019, but my advice is to choose hats that go well with your facial shape. You’ll know which ones work well for you when you try them on. If you love the retro look, vintage and second hand stores can be a great way to find hats, scarves and other accessories that add that last stylish touch.
10 – Be creative, experiment, and step outside your fashion comfort zone every now and then. Put things together that make you feel a little bold and daring, and don’t be afraid to explore both your feminine and masculine side. It’s healthy for the soul and makes us more well-rounded. However, make sure you do that when you are not going to an important event at which you want to feel at the top of your game. It’s better to experiment under the radar and see how comfortable you feel with your ideas before announcing them to the whole world.
