If you are like most people, you might be wondering what exactly you can do to improve your fashion sense, even when you don’t have the time to go shopping or get your hair done professionally. This article will present ten easy things that anyone can do in their spare time to give themselves a bit of an edge in their fashion sense. Check out these tips and see if they can help you look great at work or out on the town!
Check out and support local designers
Supporting local designers is not only a good way to get unique, high-quality fashion items but it also supports your community. Don’t live in a big city? It’s easy to find local design talent on sites like Betsy and other online marketplaces. The first step is creating an account and browsing through listings—but make sure you check out shop policies before buying anything! Remember that if you like something, don’t be afraid to send a designer a message about custom orders or special requests. Most designers are happy for their work to be shown off on personal blogs or websites; however, many will request credit for their work when it is displayed.
Play with colour schemes
Playing with colour schemes is a great way to get a feel for how they look in your home, and can help you figure out which palettes work best with your unique style. Head over to Interest, Tumbler or even Google Image Search and see what colour combinations other people have used; you might be surprised at what you find! Don’t be afraid of experimenting with different shades–colours that look jarring when placed side by side might actually complement each other perfectly.
You don’t have to be a fashion guru or keep up with every single runway show. That would be a full-time job. But staying up on emerging trends is a good way to make sure you’re not completely clueless about fashion when it matters most—your personal life. Whether you’re wearing your outfit at an office holiday party or off on a date, you should know why what you’re wearing works (or doesn’t). If you don’t feel like keeping track of every trend across industries, there are plenty of tools available that will do it for you—like Credit’s /r/fashion feed.
Create an Integra Account
Integra is an awesome way to engage with other fashion lovers and express your own style. Once you’ve made your account, fill it with photos of outfits you love and look up to. Find people whose style you admire, strike up a conversation and let them know that you want their advice on what pieces work best for your body type! They might even share their own wardrobe essentials with you!

Read fashion magazines
Magazines are fun, and they’re also a great way to stay up on fashion. You can even use them as inspiration for what you wear, whether that’s an outfit you saw at a show or online (or something you make yourself!). Plus, looking at magazines will help train your eye so that you know how clothes should fit and look—and how you can incorporate new styles into your wardrobe. Not sure where to start? Here are five of our favourite magazines for fashion beginners
Shop on Gilt or Rue La La
I know it’s tempting, but if you want to be a savvy shopper, try shopping around before going full force. Most of us have heard about sites like Gilt and Rue La La, which offer flash sales for huge savings. However, those deals quickly get gobbled up by people who catch wind of them so early on—it’s no wonder they’re featured on websites and news programs with titles like Today’s Best Deals. If you miss out on these offers at first (or don’t mind paying full price), there are still a number of ways you can save some money when buying clothes online.
Visit online fashion sites
This is an easy way to stay on top of all fashion happenings, and also serves as inspiration for trends you can incorporate into your wardrobe. It’s helpful if you use a site that allows you to save articles for later or share them with friends. These are known as content duration sites. Here are a few: Vogue Daily, Style Feed, Daily Mail Fashion, Glamour Social. If you follow any major designers on Twitter (like Marc Jacobs or Michael Korus), they often post looks they love and tips for trends worth trying out; it’s like having a personal stylist right at your fingertips!
Watch Style T.V. Shows
If you’re looking for style inspiration, there are few better places to look than your T.V. screen! For instance, if you really love designers and fashion but have never seen Project Runway , it’s time for you to change that. The show follows 13 budding fashion designers through a season of challenges and competitions, forcing them to show off their creativity and talent with each new episode. It’s fun and funny—it even features supermodel Heidi Klum!
