Keep reading this artice to know more about how to dress simple but stylish.
What makes people looks stylishly
Stylish style is timeless. The navy blue shift dress and camel pumps you buy today will still be worn ten years from now. Buying one pair of fine pearl earrings is worth more than 10 pairs of trendy earrings that will be out of date a year after you buy them. Sophisticated and stylish style means you can wear these clothes to work, Sunday brunch, shopping or traveling the world. You can even set sail in style!
Creating stylish outfits is all about bringing the essential elements together and ensuring your style and confidence are there too. So, if you’re ready to dive into your new stylish look and answer the question of how to dress in style, let’s get started.
Identify and learn your personal style
Each of us has an individual style; We just have to recognize it, understand it and then live it. It reflects your mood, personality and your interests, lifestyle, motivation and your background in general.
Once you find your personal style, you’ll find that you look great and feel confident when you step out of the house. Whether you prefer bohemian, street style, haute couture, minimalism or classic, you can make your style stylish when the occasion requires it.
If you’re trying to find your personal style, here’s a little trick you can do right now. Take your favorite items out of your closet. Lay out the clothes you wear frequently on the bed and watch the patterns. Is it mostly solids or patterns, bright or neutral colors, dresses or trousers, flirty or conservative?
What category do you think your clothes fall into? Are your clothes getting loose, maybe bohemian? Or is it full of sleek lines and a perfect fit, with solid black, white, and navy detailing? Then it can be minimal.
As a general rule, classic and minimalist styles will always look classy. Classic and minimalist styles typically focus on neutral color palettes, shapes, and fabrics, making it easy to create stylish outfits. But don’t think that just because you like bohemian or street style, stylish clothes are out of the question..

4 Basics ways to become simple but stylish
1. Clothing Made from Classic Fabrics
Classic timeless clothing made from materials that will last the next decade is something you should add to your basic wardrobe. Think cotton, wool, linen and silk. These four essential clothes will stand the test of time if taken care of properly. Cleaned and ironed, these dresses create a stylish vibe in their own right.
These clothes also have variations that allow you to expand your wardrobe. Denim is an example of a denim fabric that goes with everything from streetwear to boho to minimalism. Likewise, trousers, blazers and even motorcycle jackets (for street style!) Then there’s cashmere, a type of wool that feels good on the skin and doesn’t shoot up with age. Whether cardigans, V-neck pullovers or crew-neck pullovers, cashmere sweaters pair perfectly with denim jeans as well as with tailored trousers and skirts.
A word to the wise with these garments: Read labels and take proper care of them so they last a long time. While wrinkle-free cotton has become more affordable, most cotton items require ironing. (Gorgeous dresses don’t wrinkle!) Wool, linen, and silk often have to be hand dried or washed. Make one mistake and you might have to gift your 6-year-old niece that wool cardigan that was a staple in your wardrobe but thanks to your dryer.
2. When in doubt, wear a super neutral finish
Bold patterns and prints can certainly work into a sophisticated and stylish look, but if you are just starting your style diary you may not be comfortable with such patterns. Neutrals are your friend in this case. Plains are plentiful in stores (and possibly in your closet), easy to mix and match, and will help expand your wardrobe.
Typical neutral colors are white/beige/cream, dark blue, black and grey. Now don’t feel like you have to wear head-to-toe black (or some other neutral) clothing. Monochromatic (different shades or shades of the same color) allow you to change the color, but remain stylish. Or you can add small accents that turn a solid look into something flashy, like a skinny burgundy alligator belt, a paisley scarf, or a pair of red pumps.

3. Compliance is important
Stylish and sophisticated clothing is usually tailored and fitted (not too tight, but you can show off your figure). The skirt should be just above or below the knee just like your stylish dress. Dress pants are straight, slightly wide, slightly gathered, or masculine and the back should be inch below the floor. Wide-leg trousers and slim trousers are also acceptable in classic clothing, such as ankle-length trousers (shades of Audrey Hepburn!).The curvature of your waist should be followed by blazers, blouses, and sweaters.
Feel free to take your pieces to a local dressmaker or tailor to have them fitted. Love this loose dress at Nordstrom, but is it too big in the bust? It’s a $15 fix. Are the gray wool pants in your wardrobe too long for the classic 3-inch pumps, or do you want to wear them with flats? Another repair for 10-15 dollars. Remember that good quality clothing will last you more than 10 years, and that’s a small price to pay for reworking. Better than changing cheap pants every three years.
Everything you wear doesn’t necessarily have to be a perfect cut and fit. You can mix in unstructured pieces for a more relaxed vibe. Wear a flowy maxi skirt (roll up your sleeves for extra chic!) with a blue striped T-shirt and denim jacket, or a white button-down shirt with chinos.
Here’s an example of how to wear a jumpsuit, and in this outfit I opted for solid neutral tones and paired a structured blazer with a flowy jumpsuit.
4. Never overexpose
Dressing in style requires a little modesty—no top that exposes your midriff, open cleavage, or miniskirt. The neckline usually consists of a collar, boat neck, crew neck or V-neck. For variety, you can also try square, raised and round necks. For more formal occasions, asymmetric cutouts, sweetheart cutouts and straps are appropriate. In any case, keep your neckline and navel covered. In addition, the bra should not be visible from the armhole on the blouse and dress.
