Tips & Tricks: How To Achieve Your Perfect Look

That's right, your eyes are not deceiving you. This week I am laying out exactly how to achieve your perfect look! Well, nothing in life is completely perfect, but your outfit can come pretty darn close. Now what exactly is the "Perfect Look," you ask? I am basically mixing style + science to give you everything you need to know to create a look that is flattering, fashionable, and will never go out of style!

HIGH HEELS ARE ALWAYS A MUST

If you have any doubt in your mind that stilettos are the sexiest item in your wardrobe, I have news for you. A study published in Springer's journal, the Archives of Sexual Behavior proved what we already knew: men are more attracted to women wearing high heels. But don't let a man be the only reason to wear them. Sky-high heels make your legs look amazing, and I personally feel extra confident whenever I wear them. I love a classic heel, but Elshane's trendy booties are a fun addition to almost any outfit!

EMPHASIZE YOUR CURVES WITH A BODYCON DRESS

A bodycon dress not only emphasizes your curves, but also adds a TON of sex appeal. Worried about not having that perfect hourglass figure? With the help of some fabulous shape-wear (I wear mine almost daily!) anyone can rock these form-fitting beauties. Since the dress will definitely be a wow piece, I recommend toning down your accessories. Nicholl's look is definitely sexy, without being over the top!

THE NECESSITY OF SOMETHING RED

A dress, the perfect pumps, a stand-out bag, whatever it is you absolutely need a go-to red item in your closet for when you're ready to step things up a notch. A medical study published by the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology demonstrates that RED inspires passion, love, and romance for both men and women. Not to mention, a rep lip can elevate any outfit from drab to fab. Courtney looks simply beautiful in her red dress, and OMG I want her heels!!

THE FOREVER STYLISH LITTLE BLACK DRESS

Because of its tendency to be universally flattering, wearing all black exudes confidence almost immediately. To me, black is one of those colors that just emanates chicness, and the perfect LBD will never let you down in that department. As one of my most basic (and worn) go-to's, I throw on a little black dress to work, run errands or for an impromtu date night with the hubby. Alicia's styling is a great example of how to pull off the LBD for a carefree daytime look!

RELY ON THE CHARM OF OFF-THE-SHOULDER TOPS 

My new favorite body part to leave exposed is my shoulders. An exposed collar bone just has a sensuality and vulnerability that I love. Plus, the shoulders are the area of a woman's body that ages the slowest... how great is that?! Christina's jumpsuit is so flattering, and I love how she has accessorized her all black.

Love your blog plus the bonus of wanting to purchase items and you list brand or where to buy!!!! Thank you for putting in the time for people like me that love & want what they see on blogs, but no information and you kindly do ❤️❤️❤️??? I have many items I want to purchase and looking (for longer than 2 years for a jumpsuit or romper/suit…something for a dressier brunch, as in Easter and can’t find the exact color I want ?). I had a beautiful 2 piece suit that was the color I love and it was a strapless tunic w/dress pants that were cuffed at bottom hem but an elegant way and wider…not straight legged. I ruined it with a stain & couldn’t fix!!! So, still on hunt. Appreciate all you do ?❤️?
