There are some women you see who just look fabulous no matter what they get in. And sometimes it is hard to tell if they are just amazingly fashionable or if they just look good in anything. And then there are the women who look great if they nail it right or terrible if they get into the wrong thing. It is something we saw a lot of at the Golden Globes this year and will always see at awards shows. The women who always look good, however, are usually just fashionable women. Here’s a few pieces of advice from them on how to always look great.

Start with black

The first thing to base your closet off of is black, according to CNN. You can never go wrong with black, a slimming color that also looks great on any occasion. Fashionable women always base their entire closets with black by having a lot of black and other dark colors for use on a regular basis. By starting with black, you can never go wrong. And the best part is that you can wear black again and again without people realizing it is the same dress that you wore last week, especially if you do a lot of accessorizing.

Pick more neutrals

Black isn’t the only color people forget about. Neutrals, such as gray, are going to give you more depth to the outfit. don’t just do all black, or you’ll look fairly boring or depressed. If you put in grays, navys, and other neutral or dark colors, it will give your outfit much more life.

Strong colors a must

The next thing to keep in mind is that you need to use strong colors once in a while They are there to accentuate the outfit. Wearing a whole dress that is pink might work for a specific occasion, but it is also a big risk. You’re better off with the neutral colors and a bright pink necklace and shoes to accentuate the outfit. It looks sleek and will never let you go wrong.

Stay comfortable

The next thing you’ll need to work on is your comfort level. Though you may not always look like a fashionista doing it, you can still be fashionable in comfortable clothing. If you’re going to a pajama party, try some Jumpin jammerz footy pajamas or a styled tank and shorts. Either way, you’ll be
comfortable, and the footy pajamas will definitely label you as “cool” and “down to earth.” Whatever you do decide to wear, follow these color guides from the fashionable women experts, and you’ll do really well.
