For those of you that are all about comfort but still want to look stylish here are four simple things to remember when either shopping or dressing: C.T.P.S.
Even when wearing a plain cotton T-Shirt, a color is always more flattering than a black or gray. Color is more stimulating to the eye and gives it something to look at other than a blank canvas so if you’re going casual-cute, use this choice and put on some color!
Texture can be glitter, ruffles, pleats, fringe, fur, beads-- anything that adds dimension to the garment. Texture is also very stimulating to the eye so if you want to go sort of fancy or fur-coat vintage, texture is your main element of choice!
Whether it’s classic pin stripes, bold cheetah spots, or a delicate floral, pattern “funifies” any outfit. Even if you’re wearing a plain black T-shirt and jeans, you can tie a bold-patterned scarf around your neck and have it look more fun!
This is my favorite. Shine can be may things; metallic, beading, even leather. Shine obviously stimulates the eye and gives it something to look at. Anything that catches light would be considered shine.
Next time you go to your closet to pick out something to wear, try to find at least one of these wardrobe elements to incorporate into your outfit.
