Essential Ways To Dress Like A Celebrity
How often do we open a glossy magazine, read a newspaper, or see a celebrity on our television sets, and then sit and enviously think that we would love to look like they do. A celebrity-esque appearance is not something that you should consider as unobtainable, however, despite it seeming to be extremely difficult to do so. Just what can you do to get the superstar appearance that you are looking for?
How often do we open a glossy magazine, read a newspaper, or see a celebrity on our television sets, and then sit and enviously think that we would love to look like they do. A celebrity-esque appearance is not something that you should consider as unobtainable, however, despite it seeming to be extremely difficult to do so.
Just what can you do to get the superstar appearance that you are looking for?
Okay, we know that we are supposed to be encouraging you, but you really need to start by realising that these well-manicured, pampered individuals look as they do for a reason, namely that they have people catering for their every whim and making sure that they appear flawless at every turn.
That isn’t going to happen for you, unless you have suddenly fallen upon a rich inheritance. Instead, keep yourself grounded, know what you will, and won’t, be able to achieve, and you will find your quest a much happier one.
Find a Role Model
Just who is it that you want to look like? Are you going for the upmarket look sported by Victoria Beckham, or the dressed down, punk chick style favoured by someone such as Kate Moss?
Once you have decided who is the inspiration for your look, it is time do get on with the fun things.
Hit the Shops
We’d recommend that you find a fashion magazine or website that is proficient in the art of picking a celebrity outfit and then telling the readers where they can find similar garments at a fraction of the price.
This will give you some ideas so that you don’t find yourself splashing out a small fortune in designer boutiques when something equally as good looking could be found in a store with a more humble price structure.
Still, ensure that you have fun as you try on everything to build the outfit you want. Remember that a star looks great in full glam as well as when they are slumming it in jeans and a baggy t-shirt, so try to stretch your budget to as many garments as possible for the greatest look.
Accessories make an outfit, and are often the most standout pieces of attire when it comes to a celebrity. Whether it is the giant handbag, the exaggerated piece of designer jewellery, or the huge sunglasses that cover half of your face, these are a must.
The common thread running through all of those? Bigger is better – to accessorize like a star you have to either go big, or go home.
To put the cherry on the cake of your new celebrity style, ensure that you head to the salon and treat yourself to a new hairstyle. The best way to give yourself a star-studded edge is to go for a cut that can be styled in a number of ways, enabling you to carry off any look you want depending on your mood and chosen style for the day.
Enjoy your celebrity edge as you start to turn heads wherever you go.
