Trivia: A listicle is an article in list format. Commonly used when a writer is suffering from laziness and still want to produce catchy content. Hahaha.
#1 I Wear what fits
Pretty basic. Don’t try to fit in an XS if you’re a Small. Don’t wear Large if you’re a Medium. That’s why I prefer shopping in-real-life vs online. What size they say, may not really reflect in what it is. For on-line shopping, what I do is go to bazaars first and fit their clothing there. Once I find that it does, if they have new pieces online I can go buy it na kasi I know how their sizing works.
#2 I (try to) Wear what flatters
I’m not perfect. I had my fair share of horrendous photos of me wearing unflattering clothing that makes me look short, flat chested, or washed-out. I realized there are some styles that looks good on others that won’t look good at me. Like that time I bought this gorgeous dress for Carisse only to find out I look like a trying hard Smurfette in it. Off to the trunk it goes, unless someone invents an effective height enhancer -_-;
|Looks good on her. Her lang. Haha|
#3 Less is More
Touche! Cliche! Sign ba to ng aging? I remember back in college I LOVED wearing bright colors like fuchsia, yellows, and even orange. Flash-forward to this time and I don’t own an article of clothing that’s color orange. The color palette of my wardrobe now is stuck to essentials and colors I know that flatters me. In order of number of apperances! (White, Black, Pastel Pink, Turquoise, Purple, Navy Blue, Red).
I noticed that these colors look best 3 years, 5 years or even 10 years from now because they’re “safe” doing the following. I wear metallics or brights sparingly. Either in shoes or my accessories. Denim is also a staple!
