Looking “put together” simply means looking presentable with a touch of elegance, but in a way that appears to be low effort. The truth? It can actually be pretty low effort to appear flawlessly chic all of the time…okay, maybe not all of the time – we all have off days!
Have a style
Let’s get the most challenging advice out the way first. Of course, finding your style won’t happen overnight. You can start by getting creative and figuring out what makes you feel good. Perhaps you already have a few outfits in mind that are low maintenance but make you feel good. Having a few key outfits and styles that you can return to time and again will not only help you save time in the morning, but also give you a signature style.
It’s a good idea to always have your signature or ideal style in mind whenever you hit the shops. Look for pieces that will fit into your wardrobe and can be matched with at least 2 or 3 items you already own.
Buying less often, but buying quality items will not only help you look put together, but it’s also better for the environment – win-win, right? Quality items may be more expensive, but they won’t need replacing nearly as often. In addition to good-quality garments, look for low-maintenance pieces. It’s hard to look put together when you’re covered with creases, revealing that your t-shirt was hastily salvaged from the deep depths of your wardrobe that morning. Look for fabrics that are crease-resistant and non-iron to save time getting ready in the morning!
Have Signature Jewellery
Signature jewellery can consist of a few key pieces that never leave your person. They can be gifted items or pieces passed down from loved ones. If you’re looking for an original piece, you could have something made bespoke. This jewellers Hertford, for example, specialize in making beautiful bespoke pieces by hand that you’re sure to want to wear again and again. Having this consistency in your style helps you look put together.
Pay attention to the details
Small details can make a world of difference to your overall appearance, so pay attention to the small details. For example, take care of your nails. This doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune getting a manicure every week, just keep them clean and tidy and you’re ready to go! Another small detail you can easily add to your morning routine is a signature scent. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just a subtle scent you can come back to again and again. This may not contribute to how you look, but it will change how you’re perceived and, more importantly, how you feel.
That, as it just so happens, is the secret. If you feel put together, you’ll look more put together and in control. So invest just as much effort on your interior as you do on your exterior.
With the aforementioned in mind; relish in your bespoke jewellery, delight in putting on your signature scent, and, above all, have confidence in your style – and you’ll be ready for anything!
