Your Guide to Styling a Trendy Outfit

Jul 01 2016

From an everyday-wear wardrobe to a classy dress for a special occasion, it is highly essential to stay fashion forward. To be honest, picking out an outfit for the right day consumes a lot of time and energy. It takes a lot of practice to be perfectly sure how you would style your outfit.

When styling your outfit you have to take into consideration what time of the day you’re wearing it. Some accessories are designed for the right time; day or night. If styled properly, a certain accessory can either make your dull dress look fabulous or make it look shabby.

Style of Dress

Accessories are added to enhance your style, but the foremost need is the dress. The 2016 fashion trends have given a lot of importance to abstract designs. Animal prints are always going to be classic but abstract has taken the lead. What you need to learn is which dress style would suit you the most. If you’re going for a longer dress then look for a maxi, a slit maxi or a double slit maxi. Keep in mind that all of these would go best with high heels. A wrap dress would be fine too. Make sure that the accessories that you choose, be it jewelry or scarves, have something in contrast with your outfit. If you can’t find anything to contrast it with, then go for some jewelry in either gold or silver color.

Cut of Dress

If you’re aiming for a shorter dress then look for a mini dress or a midi dress. The new trend is that the asymmetrical cut on the dress is found quite striking. You can also try the high-low hem dress. These dresses look best on a special occasion. With a short dress, you have to check the accessories carefully as they can be a lot more visible. You can also choose longer earrings for it. If you’re going for a strapless dress then you can pair it up with a choker. Chokers are much trendier nowadays. Still if you want to go for a necklace, then try a longer necklace. It would enhance the elegance of your dress. You might want to carry a clutch with this dress and make sure to match it with your shoes. The bag and shoe matching concept is still in for the long run.


The casual daytime look is the easiest to style. High-waist capris and high-waist shorts are back in the fashion world. The timeless blue shorts can be worn with any kind of t-shirts; it can either be loose or a crop top. Add some rings and a chunky bracelet to add spark to your look. It is actually cool these days to look a bit messy and rough during the day. You can always go for a denim dress, a belted romper or a loose mini dress for a daytime look. Accessorize it with a plain or printed scarf if you want. Infinity scarves and fringed scarves are in trend these days.

The trends keep changing with time, but remember you can always style up your outfits nicely with the use of the right accessory.
