  • Hi.. I'm Linda Otiende; a Personal Style Blogger. I think fashion and style is all about creativity; playing around with what you have to create something unique and stylish out of it. Blogging about my personal style is an interest I developed about three years ago when I discovered that as ladies, we really go to certain extremes to look good. Yes, we gotta look good but at the end of the day that does not mean that we have to wear the most expensive clothes or shoes to be stylish. You can actually work it out in the cheapest of them yet still ooze class! So welcome to my blog where I will get to show you my personal style and how I manage to look good on a budget. I do hope you enjoy.

    8 best fashion tips of all times

    1. Accessorize
    This is the best fashion tip of all times. Accessorizing an outfit just takes it to a whole new level. By accessories here I mean hats, jewelry, belts, scarves etc



    2.Experiment
    Stop playing safe. Experiment with as many color combos as you can. That way you even get to know what colors bring out the best in you. Wearing color actually does wonders to your whole appearance so I challenge you to come out of your comfort zones.

    3. Show skin strategically
    Just how much is too much? If you want to show a bit of leg, stick to that. If you are the 'no sleeves' type, go ahead and if its cleavage just stick to that. Too much can turn out to be sleazy.

    4. Embrace your shape
    Am too curvy?! Am too slim?! Stop complaining and embrace yourself the way you are. Use what you have to bring out the best. If you are curvy then dress your curves. If you are slim; find something that works for you e.g don't go for clingy clothes coz they'll make you look slimmer but instead go for stripes (horizontal), heavy prints, peplums etc

    5. Invest in staples
    When you invest in wardrobe staples you will never be worried about what to wear. 

    It is smart to invest in timeless staples because they never go out of style and in any case you can build the rest of your wardrobe around them Style Guide




    6. Invest in a good tailor
    Once in a while its good to have your clothes tailored. It is inexpensive and you get clothes that fit you perfectly. And what's even best is that a year down the line you can still take it back to the tailor for alterations depending on whether you've gained or lost.


    7. Be comfortable in what you wear 
    Never at any given time should you sacrifice your comfort for fashion. Do not suffer in that 6 inch heel or micro skirt just because you want to be the center of attention. Style and confidence go hand in hand. 



    8. Dress for yourself
    When you dress for others then you lose your self confidence because at the end of the day you are trying to impress others which shouldn't be the case. Dress up because you want to and that way you will feel comfortable and confident.
