How To Look Pretty Without Being Affected by Fashion
Most women are exposed to an assortment of products that promote beauty or offer benefits for everyday use. Regardless of age, industry, and job, many women use beauty products daily ranging from conditioners to lotions and makeup.
For some, these products can be essential to their daily routine, but it’s important to note possible negative effects of beauty products; factors like quality, brands, and prices of products may not exempt consumers from experiencing harmful effects.
Looking more fashionable isn’t always about wearing the trendiest, most expensive clothes, or mastering some complex styling trick. Sometimes it’s as easy as just tucking in your shirt or throwing on a pair of sunglasses.
Take note of illegal products
Some cosmetics contain substances that are prohibited within the country. In the event discomfort is experienced at a corporal or health-level, it’s imperative to investigate the country’s rules to ensure the company is complying with federal restrictions appropriately. In the event that the product contains an illegal substance, legal action should be initiated against the brand.
Monitor unusual reactions
Since it’s not uncommon for women to have sensitive skin, many products can generate some sort of reaction to their bodies. If you’re unsure and experience an unusual reaction, a professional can be helpful to ensure the product is being used correctly.
Any product can be harmful
Even brands that produce products developed for specific markets can overlook ingredients that may be harmful to their consumers. For example, products like shampoos or conditioners that are geared towards children may contain substances harmful to the body. It’s important to thoroughly research companies, as well-known brands, which can also be your worst enemy.
Know your options
To take control of your beauty life, be attentive and continuously investigate products so you’re prepared should you encounter a negative experience. Remaining educated can help decrease your risk. In the event of an adverse reaction, take action and alert fellow consumers before others fall prey to a bad product.
Add a motorcycle jacket
A good motorcycle jacket improves every outfit; it doesn’t matter if it’s jeans and a T-shirt, a formal gown, or gym clothest. Black leather is the classic choice, but it’s not a must. Colors, prints, embellishments, whatever! It’s all good.
Layers, layers, and more layers
The more layers you have, the less likely any one piece is to really make or break your outfit, so go crazy a coat, over a jacket, over a mesh shirt, over a crop top. With a belt. And leather leggings. Under a skirt. You’re an onion. A fashionable onion.
Wear the wrong shoes
Whatever you would normally choose for footwear, choose the opposite. Trade your high heels for flat booties, your sneakers for high heels, and your sandals for sneakers. The more wrong it feels, the more right it is.
Wear something really small with something really big
A crop top with a ball skirt. An oversized top with cut-off shorts. Looking fashionable is all about playing with proportion and contrast. Not just big with small, but also hard with soft, tight with loose, and heavy with light.
Add something Chanel. Anything
Anyone can be stylish, but if you want to be “fashionable” you gotta play the label game at least some of the time and those little interlocking Cs are a fashionable win every time. Sure, you could wear another prestigious brand, but it’s not the same. Chanel is just hands down the most iconic fashion label there is. It can’t be beat. One Chanel bangle or pair of sunglasses has more fashion cred than many high-end designer handbags and will probably stay stylish long after those bags become passé.
Do a half-assed tuck job
Whether it’s a sweater, a tank or a collared silk shirt, just grab that middle front piece, tuck it down, and watch your style cred increase instantaneously by a factor of 10 at least.
Slap a hat on it
Fashion is all about making a statement and creating a well-defined look and no other accessory does that quite like a good hat. Sure, they can be a little costumey, but that’s the point. Just steer clear of fascinators. No one looks good in those things. Not even at a royal wedding.
Always wear sunglasses
Even when you’re inside. Even when it’s dark out. Your eyes will adjust eventually. And besides, sunglasses are way easier to put on than eye makeup.
Wear your cross-body bag in the front
Pull that thing around to the front and show it off. You know it’s your favorite part of your outfit anyway.
