Choose clothes that flatter you: they should fit, and be neat and clean with a crisp appearance. Ask an unbiased friend or a sales assistant if you're not sure that an outfit suits YOU
Always have a few outfits prepared in advance. That way, you won't have to spend lots of time rifling through your closet for certain events.
Choose what you like. If you enjoy dressing preppy, a polo shirt or two are a must. Enjoy what you wear; clothing should be fun.
4Keep up with the latest trends, so that you know what's current and what isn't. Check fashion magazines and put your own twist on things!
5Add a couple of accessorise - for example, a watch, necklace, ribbon or belt.
Know that good quality shoes are a must. Wear something that matches your personal style as well as the outfit you are wearing.
7Don't go over the top (for example, don't wear all leopard print).
8Try not to look fake; don't wear something if it's not you.
9Be daring and unique! If you like leopard print, try going for a leopard print headband. Try interesting combinations, like a dress with jeans, or shorts and tights. Don't be afraid to experiment.
10Go for variety. For example, if you like pink, try different shades, not just bubblegum pink; there's dusty pink, baby pink, hot pink, etc.
11Buy more than one pair of jeans; a dressy pair, a casual pair, an 'outdoors' pair (especially handy when camping), and an 'at home' pair. Jeans are lifesavers, especially on those days that you can't find anything to wear. Try jeans with any top, a cute pair of shoes, maybe a belt, and off you go!
12Mix 'n' match from previous seasons.
13Black pants and denim are compulsory!
14Check thrift stores and discount outlets, style shouldn't be expensive.
15Make sure you have outfits: that means clothes that go well with each other.
16Sometimes, it's better to go for quality than quantity. Better to have one outfit with really great quality than two outfits which fall apart after a couple washings.
17Don't pay heed to what people say is "stylish". Just dress how you think you should dress, and create a style of your own.
18Don't wear make-up that is too dark for your skin tone. It will make you look like you have a dirty face or make you look plain unattractive.
19Nail polish does not have to match your outfits at all. It is an area to style by itself.
20If you wear an outfit that you consider dressy or extra stylish, fix your hair in a way that is as unique as the outfit itself.
21Don't over do, but don't under do also. If it's your style, go for it! Everyone has their own style. Make up usually goes well with the outfit but don't apply too much, or you will look like a doll.
22Don't show too much skin (like a lot of cleavage or back). If you do too much, people will think you are a person that doesn't care what they wear.
23Don't go to the stores where most people go to. It sometimes makes people look the same. Go to different stores, even the thrift store if needed.
