Style Tips For Women On The Go
What is the number one response that you hear when you ask your girl friends how they are?
If your friends are anything like mine, it will be something like: “Fine thanks…just so busy!”
Busy. Everyone is busy, and let’s face it. Life doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down just yet.
How many balls are you juggling?
- Looking great
What’s that last one? 😉
You have a lot going on in your brain at any given time. So it it any wonder that when it comes to getting dressed in the morning you ever feel overwhelmed and frustrated? I mean, what on earth are you supposed to wear when you want to look great? There is no time to go shopping, and no time to try on a load of outfits every time you get dressed.
We understand all of these frustrations at My Style Rules. To be honest, this was the motivation behind starting the whole business. The main objective is always to help women to feel better about themselves, and we know that is not a simple task when to do lists stretch longer than a day! Your own needs are often pushed to the back of the pile of chores.
What if looking fabulous became a treat rather than a chore?
What if it didn’t take any more of your precious time?
The My Style Rules site is designed to save you time as well as money, while fulfilling the need to look and feel great. Everyone wants to look their best, and you deserve that. So the place to start if you really want to look great on the go is with your style rules and some items in your closet that are designed for your unique body shape.
But we don’t want to leave you there! We want to share some fantastic tips that will keep you looking stylish every day on the go, even if you only have a few minutes to prepare – starting right now!
Plan The Night Before
In an ideal world you will have a few minutes to spare in the evenings before you drop into bed. If this is the case open your closet and choose your outfit for the next morning. This gives you time to make sure that you are following the rules for your body-type, a sure fire way to ensure that you look great even if you have no time to do anything else! Planning the night before will reduce your ‘overwhelm-level’ that can easily escalate in the mornings!
Be Impeccable With Your Skincare
Don’t scrimp on the time you spend on your skincare routine. You should at least cleanse, tone and moisturize twice a day, and always wear sunscreen (even if you will be sitting in an office all day).
Making sure that your skin is kept healthy and nourished will provide you with a beautiful foundation from which to add all of the other quick tricks to ‘effortless’ style on the go.
Make Friends With Your Hairdresser
Stylish hair starts in the salon. Maintain your hair cut with regular trims, and let your stylist know that you have minimal time in the mornings. They will be able to recommend a look that can be pulled off effortlessly. And in bad-hair emergencies remember how great a messy bun can look? Don’t be scared to give it a whirl! Otherwise a simple ponytail is easy and looks stylish.
Don’t Skip MakeUp
Even if you only have 2 minutes spare, don’t miss this easy way to look polished. Decide on your best features and emphasize these. I would recommend tidying your eyebrows, adding a sweep of mascara and a nourishing lip balm as a super-fast day-ready face.
Take Care Of Your Shoes
Maintain your shoes with care and they will serve you well. Shoes are not cheap, so spend time polishing and looking after them. Don’t leave them caked in mud and shoved in a box if you want them to look great when you shove them on as you leave the house.
If your day involves a lot of running around then opt for stylish flats to keep you going comfortably. If you are daring then why not try bright colors, otherwise neutral flats will look great with everything.
Make A Statement With Accessories
You can look instantly stylish if you add a stunning signature accessory. Maybe you love chunky bracelets or long strings of beads. It’s a great opportunity to let your personality shine through. These can take your outfit to the next level with minimal effort, so don’t skip this bit.
Consider investing in a divine bag that looks fabulous slung over your shoulder. That is style without even thinking about it!
Sunglasses are of course a sure fire way to add some glam to your look, especially if you have skipped makeup! So be sure to have a pair on hand.
Add A Pop Of Color
Get to know which colors look best with your skin tone and choose tops or scarves in that shade. This will make your skin glow when worn next to your face.
We are all in a rush nowadays, we have minimal time to spare on our appearance and it is easy to feel harassed when we try to put a look together.
The reality is, that we need to make some time for ourselves so that looking great on the go is achievable. That means sunscreen, a balanced diet and plenty of sleep. You deserve those things!
Fortunately looking good when you are in a rush it doesn’t need to be so stressful! With a few perfectly proportioned pieces in your closet and the tricks we have shared with you here, you can look great no matter how much time is available to you.
The unexpected side effect is that you will give yourself an incredible boost in self esteem when you take time to look your best. That will result in a positive outlook on life, and you will be more productive than ever!
