The Golden Rules of Styling

It took Nina Garcia years to develop her unique style and vision, so it’s okay if you don’t feel confident in yours quite yet. To get you thinking like a professional stylist, here are a couple tried-and-true fashion guidelines (in no particular order) that will have you looking great in no time.

  • 1. Price doesn’t matter as much as arrangement. If you can pair an expensive blouse with outlet jeans in a way that makes sense, then more power to you!
  • 2. Don’t be afraid of color. If you feel like there’s something missing from your outfit, you have permission to throw a red purse, blue shoe, or yellow jacket into the mix. But, at the same time…
  • 3. When in doubt, black it out. Black really does go with everything. Plus, if you’re really in a fashion pickle, know that head-to-toe black will never not be fashionable.
  • 4. Accessories can complete any outfit, but stick to the less-is-more mentality. Avoid pairing big earrings with a large statement necklace or standout hair clips — it’ll overwhelm your whole look.
  • 5. Above all, confidence is key. Even when you’re not sure it’s a home run, if you saunter outside in your outfit with swagger, you’ll be a fashion champion every time.
