It never hurts to have a systematic way to assemble beautiful, trendy, and comfortable outfits. It’s even better when you can do it to match ANY weather, climate, social setting, or particular occasion.

In this post, we’d like to explore indispensable foolproof fashion formulas for the prudent woman who knows how to always dress her best. Check out these five strategies.

Layering Outfits Like a Pro

While layering your clothes will have a lot to do with your local climate, it’s an essential strategy for many women. If for no other reason, you could find yourself in hot or cold buildings during different times of day since some places set their thermostat much differently. That’s why it’s incumbent on the fashionable lady to layer her dresses with coats, cardigans, leggings, and other items. The key to doing it well hinges upon the ability to add or subtract various articles at any time of day.

Single-Color Outfits 

Yes, monochrome outfits still work! You just have to pay attention to a few important variables: your personal color preferences, the season, and complimenting your features. For example, brunettes may style themselves better with accenting, darker colors, whereas blondes may opt for a unicolor light blue, yellow, or white. Your seasonal outfits could be a single-colored red or green for Christmas or perhaps a tasteful tan during Thanksgiving. There are several other examples, so experiment boldly!

Accessorize to Perfection

Accessories can help you overcome other uncertainties, even minor fashion faux pas. Therefore, it’s smart to build your wardrobe with lucrative accessories like watches, hats, bracelets, earrings, and more. Many of our store locations also carry tremendous jewelry options from brands like Karen Kane.

Synthesize High & Low Fashion Elements

Did you know you CAN mingle those luxury items with more common apparel? There’s certainly no rule against pairing those cute higher-end shoes with a simpler, but still gorgeous maxi dress or knit sweater. As long as you put your outfit together sensibly, no one notices the difference, other than that you look fantastic.

Shop Small at a Cozy Boutique

Thankfully, fashion formulas don’t have to be as complex as calculus ones. If you recall, in our early blog post on reasons to shop small, we explained how it’s easier to find customizable clothing options when you patronize dedicated boutique stores. This is our entire raison d’être at Scout & Molly’s Boutique. At our locations (and online stores), you can find a splendid volume of dresses, shirts, skirts, sweaters, pants, accessories, and more. You won’t have a hard time assembling a gorgeous and versatile wardrobe after visiting us.
