Hey, beauties. Last week we suggested using this time at home to experiment with your personal style. Now is a great time to step outside your comfort zone (if not your house), declutter and revamp. To bring you a little inspiration, we've found the perfect YouTube channel to get you started.
US-based YouTuber Alexandra Beth at AlexandrasGirlyTalk is a fashion enthusiast who will help you revolutionize your wardrobe. What sets her apart from most YouTube "influencers" for me is how practical and on point her guides are. They are simple enough for a beginner to follow, and nail down all the things you've instinctively been doing right (and wrong!) throughout your fashion journey.
Here are just some examples of fashion fundamentals she covers:
Style 101 - Basic Tips
From shapewear to proper maintenance for your clothing, this video of basic style tips is a great starting point for beginners to identify and correct the little details that can make or break a look.
The Right Way to Shop
Ever wondered how your closet is overflowing with clothes and you still have nothing to wear? The majority of us don't go shopping with specific items in mind; instead, we browse mindlessly until we see something that excites us. By the time you get home, usually that excitement wears off and you realize it doesn't play well with other pieces. This video helps you rethink how you shop for a more cohesive (and less cluttered) wardrobe you'll actually wear.
The Right Pair of Jeans
Jeans are a true investment piece for your wardrobe, so it's worth figuring out the type(s) that makes you look and feel good. I wish I had seen this guide when I was younger, so I could have saved money on awful low-rise, bootcut jeans that did nothing for my short figure. Whatever your body type, this video tells you exactly what to look for in a winning pair of denim.
When it comes to clothes, jewelry, hair and makeup, you've probably heard of matching or complementing your skin's undertones, but how does that work? Even if you know nothing about colour theory, you've probably noticed which shades make you look fresh vs ones make you look tired. By the end of this video this will all make sense: you'll better understand why some shades flatter your complexion, and which ones to avoid.
