The reason I love all black is because it is so simple yet can make such a statement when you choose your ensemble correctly. Take this black short sleeve coat for example. What would seemingly be an otherwise simple coat is transformed simply by adding a waist belt. That my friends is the power of styling. Yes this outfit probably would have looked okay un-belted, but if you’re here reading Lil Miss JB Style then you are probably looking for advice on how to create a look that’s more than just okay. Here I strive to create looks that are simple yet elevated at the same time. You know, the perfect touch of je ne sais quoi that can make a tee and jeans look like pure perfection. You’ve seen those outfit photos that make you drool over everything but if you break down the outfit it’s really nothing more than a sweater and high waist pants. So how do you get that same look? That put together without seeming like you spent hours getting dressed?
The key is how you style what you wear. Have you ever seen an outfit on Pinterest and thought “hey I have something really similar in my closet”. So you throw it on, so excited about how perfect this look will be only to see yourself in the mirror and wonder why your outfit looks nothing like the one you saw in the picture. This is because style is more than just actually putting on the clothes, it’s adjusting them, adding those personal touches that take your look to the next level. Think the coveted front tuck or the perfect pants roll. All those little details are important when putting together an outfit that’s lust worthy. Just as important as adding your flair is making sure what you’re wearing fits flatteringly on your body. You don’t want to look disproportionate by wearing a long-line jacket or pair of pants that makes you look shorter. Pay just as much attention to where your clothes start and stop as you do the details.
Remember, truly great style that’s effortless actually does take a lot of effort to initially build. Not only is attention to detail important, but patience to root through what works and what doesn’t as well. For those who are too busy, look to enlist the help of a personal stylist to define your style.
