I know! We all lead such busy lives that are hair, style and certain body parts can be neglected. Keeping the following 5 simple style tips and tricks in mind will help you look EFFORTLESSLY put together. In addition check out 6 more tips to LOOK and FEEL lovely on August’s McLaughlin’s video that I was more than thrilled to be a part of.
Hair Style Trick #1: Keep Dry Shampoo Handy
Besides our face, our hair is one of the first things people notice. I recommend RAYNE CHECKING your hairstyle every 5 years or by age 30, 35, 40 and so on.
On the go and don’t have time to wash your locks? Trick: dry shampoo is a great way to freshen up oily and dirty hair. You can buy a powder, spray or mix cornstarch with cocoa powder and cinnamon for a DIY dry shampoo (tip from Las Vegas hair stylist Marlena Bansberg).
Fashion Tip #2: Dress According to Your Body Shape
Accentuate all those positives parts! Rule of thumb; wear brighter colors and patterns to the half of your body you want to draw people’s eyes to. Tip: if you want to appear thinner wear darker colors and solids to downplay the other half.
Fashion Tip # 3: Tailor Your Core Wardrobe
To get the perfect fit for our core wardrobe, we need to take in here, hem this and add a dart there. It’s all about the fit! Trick: tailoring can make you look extra polished, MORE successful and 10 pounds thinner…for real!
Style Tip #4. Organize Your Closet Like A Boutique
I find the “I have nothing to wear “ frustration” stems from a disheveled, unorganized and messy closet. A clean lay out equals a fresh approach to outfits. The more you can see, the more outfits will come to your mind. Tip: Organize your clothes by color from light to dark. Then by type of garment – skirts, pants, tanks, blouses and jackets. Sweaters, to keep their shape, can be folded and put in drawer or on a shelf. In make take a couple of weeks to get the hang of keeping your clothing color coded…but practice makes perfect. Soon it will be second nature to be neat!
Image Tip #5: Polish Those Toes
People notice your feet. If you wear open-toed shoes or sandals make sure your feet are purrrr-ty. No dirty, green, ripped, long or raggedy unpainted toe nails. Keep those dry heels under wraps too! This can ruin a look. If you don’t take care of your feet we can only imagine what else you fail to care for. If you have a toe nail that is dead and detached(pictured below)…LET IT GO! Please don’t put a band-aid on it. It will grow back. I was cracking up when I saw my friend had showed up to a brunch with her foot like this. Tip: Have the manicurist use your own nail polish. You will be able to touch up any chips or peels yourself.
