While it would be great to focus all of our energies on developing our personal styles, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Juggling work, family commitments and a social life can all make it harder to find the right style for you and sometimes it helps to do a couple of things that make life a little easier.
That’s what this blog post should help you do. Here we present some useful quick style tips that will save you time while ensuring you stay looking great.
Prepare Outfits The Night Before
The morning rush is hardly the ideal time to select an outfit. In between getting showered, eating breakfast and dealing with famil
y issues, there can be precious little time for finding a good outfit that will carry you through the day. To get around this, consider what you need to wear the night before and lay it out ahead of time. That way the decision is already made and you don’t need to waste valuable morning time on finding a good outfit, plus you won’t get caught out by creases or other issues.
Have Outfits For Every Occasion
You never know what tomorrow might bring, which means you need to be ready no matter what. By having a few ready-made outfits available in your wardrobe for any occasion you can quickly throw on something that looks great without having to go through the rigmarole of putting different items of clothing together to see what works best for the day.
Know Your Measurements
What about when you are shopping for clothes? If you have a busy day ahead of you, every minute that you spend in the changing rooms trying on different sizes of the same outfit is time wasted. By knowing your own measurements ahead of time you place yourself in a position where you can pick your clothes and take them straight to the till, allowing you to get on with the rest of your day.
Treat Stains Quickly
Any stain in your clothing is a knock against your personal style, so it helps to get them sorted out as quickly as possible. Worse yet, the longer you leave the stain the more chance it has to set itself into the item of clothing, which means you have to waste more time getting rid of it.
Keep It Simple
Not every outfit you wear needs to be some complex masterpiece that takes hours to put together. By keeping things simple you not only save yourself a lot of time, but you also show others that you are comfortable in yourself and your style, which is really half of the battle when it comes to fashion.
Focus On Fit
The fit of your clothes is perhaps more important than their quality. If something doesn’t fit your body shape you may not look that great in it, even if you spent a lot of money on the outfit. That’s why how the clothes fit should always be your main focus. You can worry about the rest later on. This saves you time too, as you won’t end up rifling through your wardrobe to find clothes that actually fit.
If you really aren’t sure what to wear then it is always best to overdress for the occasion. Remember that you can always remove a sweater or jacket and carry on wearing whatever is underneath, but you can’t materialise either out of thin air if you end up being underdressed for the occasion. Just wear the clothes you think you might need and remove any you don’t when the time calls for it, rather than wasting valuable time trying to decide how dressed up you need to be.
Use Good Razors
It may seem a little out of the box, but your grooming regimen plays a big part in your personal style. The quality of your razors can actually increase the amount of time it takes you to get ready. Cheap and disposable razors really give you what you paid for in terms of quality and you may find yourself having to waste valuable time hacking away at stubborn chunks of hair or stemming blood after an unfortunate cut. By investing in a good razor you can not only give yourself a better shave, but you also lower the chances of the mishaps that waste time from happening to you when you are in a rush.
