Do you have what it takes to be fashionista?

When it comes to fashion, there are no rules…or so they say. In order to be dubbed a fashion girl, one must learn to create her own style. Oh, and the good habits that come with that.

Do you already practice any of these?

1 Organised Wardrobe

Colour Coded Closet


For the stylish and fashionable, they take the ‘war’ out of  ‘wardrobe’. They categorise their clothes by colour, type, or occasion. Make your life easier by organising your priced possessions instead of leaving them lying around the room. Having them neatly laid out will not only save you time in the mornings, it’ll also help you put together flawless outfits as you’ll get to quickly locate and try on different ensembles.

2 Outfit Planning

Stylish ladies do not need to rush through mornings flipping through their wardrobe to figure out what to wear. Instead, they plan their outfits in advance. Doing this saves you the frustration and gives you time to leisurely think about your outfit and its complementary accessories.

3 Do A Weather Check

Weather CheckThis comes hand-in-hand with outfit planning. It’s a good habit to check on weather forecasts so you’ll know how to appropriately and stylishly dress for the weather.

4 Time is Money

Snooze buttons are not exactly their best friend. Sleep is important, but not everyone can wake up and look flawless in 10 minutes before catching the train. Lay off the multiple alarms and take the time to dress, do your hair and makeup, and find the right accessories to pull your ensemble together.

5 Stay True To Your Style

They don’t copy and paste. Instead, they innovate and invent trends. Originality and staying true to one’s style is the fashionista’s main mantra.

6 Labels Are Just Labels

Stylish dressers do not buy designer goods for the sake of it. Whatever looks good to them is good. It’s better to invest in classic, long-wearing pieces such as denim than to spend on short-lived designer items.

7 Know What Fits You

They wear clothes that only fit and flatter their body. It’s a no-no to squeeze into those unflattering jeans or any outfit that’s too tight. When you feel comfortable in your own skin, you look better!

8 Have A Handy Emergency Kit

Fashion Emergency KitThe one thing that stylish people never forget is Murphy’s Law: anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Even if you are prepared, you’ll never know when bad luck will happen. Always carry around an emergency kit containing safety pins, double-sided tape, and band aids so you’ll never have to worry when a blister comes up or if your zipper busts.
