You might think that to be fashionable, you need to follow the latest trends. For instance, a lot of people think staying in fashion simply means looking at what influencers or celebrities are wearing. However, this isn’t quite true. The reality is that their fashion choices may not suit you. You may not share their body type or lifestyle. When it comes to fashion trends, it’s best to follow your own direction. Decide what you like and what looks best on your body with your face and hair and how it will fit into your overall lifestyle.

Glasses And Eyewear
If you are on the hunt for a new pair of glasses, then you might start to explore the types of frames and styles that celebs are wearing. A lot of celebrities from Oprah to Ryan Reynolds wear glasses, and many of them make eyewear look very chic. Whether they are at the beach wearing shades or at home reading a book. However, if you search around you’ll find that most aren’t following a single trend in terms of style. This is because they are choosing the style and design that matches their specific look. Glasses look different depending on the shape of your face and of course your eyes. The style you should choose depend on your individual appearance. For instance, you might have a long face and if that’s the case, aviator shades could probably be a great option for you. If you have a small face, then the typical aviator glasses are probably going to swamp the rest of your face. In contrast, cat eye glasses are ideal for women with a round face. You don’t want to rush this decision before trying a few styles for size.

Don’t forget that the glasses you choose can also have practical implications. You’ll often find that business professionals and politicians choose rimless glasses. That’s because it allows them to show more of their face which is important for publicity purposes and creating an honest, trustworthy persona.

Clothing is another area where it’s best to go in your own direction. For example, pencil skirts come in and out of fashion. You might immediately think that you should go out and buy one. However, it’s possible that your body doesn’t match this specific type of skirt. Pencil skirts are styled for those with a slender figure without any real types of curves. If you are curvacious, it makes sense to choose clothing that complements this particular body shape and there are skirts that are perfect for this. There are also dresses that complement certain body types, and you should definitely check out some of these options. Curves are in right now so the fashion world is actually leaning towards this concept thanks to Kim Kardashian and Beyonce.

Clothing also provides a wonderful chance to draw attention to an area of your body that you are confident in and away from an area that you don’t like about yourself. If you love your hourglass figure, then dress it up a little more. Add a belt to a dress to complement your waist while also breaking up an outfit and giving it more character. Celebrities do this all the time when they have this type of figure. Alternatively, if you aren’t confident about the lower part of your body, then it’s worth carefully selecting a top that draws attention to your best assets.

Similar to selecting the right pair of glasses, hairstyles are another area where it’s going to depend on the key features of your face. Consider the shape of your face as well as details like the size of your forehead. This can determine whether you would look better with or without a bangs. Of course, it also depends on your type of hair since there are different types that lend themselves to certain styles. You might have thin hair or you could have long thick locks. It’s possible that your hair doesn’t grow too long naturally at all or it might be down to your waist. There are benefits and drawbacks to both types of styles. You also need to think about color as well as whether your hair is curly, wavy, or straight. If you choose to wear extensions, then this can weaken the roots and you might need to spend weeks or even months repairing them after this type of style choice.

Take advantage of your natural hair whenever possible. There is a great style for every type of hair regardless of whether your hair is naturally thin or beautifully thick. It all depends on how you want to look. The right hairstyle can make you look like a completely different person. Your hairstylist can  help you make key decisions about the best length and style and they can even make changes that will naturally alter the aesthetic appearance of your hair. It is possible to make thin hair look thicker without adding extensions if you choose the right stylist.

Jewelry And Makeup

Finally, jewelry and makeup are elements where what you should wear largely depends on your natural features. Earrings are a great example of this because the right earrings for you will depend on the shape and look of your ears. If you have larger ears then you might want to make them look smaller and if that’s the case, larger earrings such as hoops could be the right choice. Studs or minimal earrings will be perfect for more dainty ears.

As for makeup, think about both the color of your eyes as well as the natural tone of your skin. This will help you decide on the right makeup to wear. Makeup should accentuate your best features rather than concealing or replacing them. It is worth experimenting with different styles and types of makeup to find the right choice for you. In doing so, you will be able to ensure that your makeup complements your face while concealing any blemishes or imperfections.

Sometimes, it’s best to go in your own direction and in doing so create your own style. You can still look incredibly stylish and find a look that suits you best. It’s also a great way to ensure that you stand out at an event, party or celebration. If in doubt, you can hire a personal stylist for the day and they will be able to help you find the perfect look for you.
