7 Style Things Every Woman Knows is True

And if you didn’t, now you know.

1.Red lipstick makes you look instantly fashun-y:

‘Even if you’re just going to the grocery store in athleisure, or running around in jeans and a T-shirt, red lips dress up any outfit.’

2. You can’t let deodorant marks ruin your look:

‘I wear mostly white and black shirts and pants because it’s just so easy to look polished when you wear basic [colours]. But black tops are tricky because of the white deo marks!’ Try find a a black and white deo that works hard but doesn’t rub off onto your dark clothing.

3. Life is more fun in shoes you can walk in:

‘I’m definitely more of a comfort person. I rarely wear heels because I find them so awful to stand in. And if I do have to dress up, I’ll wear a strappy shoe with [thick heels] because I think I’ll fall on my face in stilettos.’

4. Ain’t nobody got time to iron:

‘My stuff is always rolled in a ball in a corner (of my closet), but I hate ironing. I’ll use a hair straightner to dewrinkle my clothes sometimes. Just hang the shirt up and pull the straightner down, like you’re straightening your hair. Just don’t use too high of a setting or you could burn your shirt.’

5. Layers make an outfit look interesting:

‘Layering makes an outfit look intentional, like, “I chose all these things to go together.” I’ll wear a jacket with everything , even if it’s 20 degrees, like a bomber jacket with a plain white shirt under it. I’m super into layering necklaces too. A choker plus a longer necklace really dresses up an outfit.’

6. Details matter too:

‘I like to add a knot at the bottom of a T-shirt if it’s too long – or to cover up a stain at the [hem]. You could do it with a maxi dress too, so I’ll tie a knot in the bottom a little off to the side.’

7. It’s always cuffing season:

‘I’m really short, so I have to shorten my jeans. But instead of taking them to a tailor, I usually just cuff them. It really adds a specific look to an outfit – it’s a little retro and more interesting than just “plain jeans”. It’s so cute with black booties or even sneakers.’
