If you find yourself crunched for time, going monochrome is an easy way to look chic quick! Monochrome looks would consist of all white, all black or all neutral pieces paired in one outfit. Dress yourself head-to-toe in one of the most forgiving colors and create that runway look we know you have!

Bonus Tip: Try mixing the textures! It keeps it interesting.

MIX STYLES

A definite fav here at EGL.  When your casual meets your glam—CONGRATULATIONS! You didn’t play yourself.

If you’re wearing jeans, pair them with your favorite heel, this adds more femininity to your look. If you’re working with a closet full of glam and are not sure how to execute the pieces during the day or at night, find a more casual item to tone the look down a bit. If you’re working with a closet full of casual, pair it with a glam piece!

Balance! Balance is a major part of fashion. If you opt to wear a skin tight piece on the bottom, try pairing it with a loose fitting top. If you choose a loose fitting top, pair it with a tighter fitting bottom. This goes for showing off your beautiful skin as well! If you love to show skin, try taking turns. Show your legs and cover your arms or vice versa. You can also even it out, showing small portions or both arms and legs. This creates an effortless edgy look.

ACCESSORIZE

Accessories will make or break an outfit. Put together a basic outfit and pair it with a statement necklace, hat or your favorite statement piece. This can be an oversized fur jacket, a wild belt or fun shoes. Accessorizing with bold pieces dismisses the boredom and elevates your look.

KNOW YOUR STYLE

When you understand what works and what doesn’t work for you, you can’t fail! Keep a few go-to pieces clean and ready-to-wear. The pieces you know look, fit and make you feel great are always beneficial when trying to dress for the occasion. Things that are good to keep on hand are a little black dress, a nice pair of jeans, a soft white or off-white t-shirt, a black pair of heels and a nice pair of tennis shoes.

DON’T BE AFRAID OF PATTERNS

When solid colors get boring patterns are on stand-by preparing for your glo-up. Your grays, whites, navy’s and khaki don’t want to see you in patterns.Patterns can be scary, but they make outfits fabulous! This includes floral, paisley, stripes, polka dot and the popular camo pattern.
