Tips to confidently style sleeveless outfits

Sleeveless is in style. Especially in the Philippines, there are many pros to wearing open-armed clothing. They are breezy, ventilating, perfect for the hot weather, comfortable, and sexy, highlighting the arms if that’s a body part you want to draw attention to. Moreover, sporting the attire could also be a show of confidence.

 Here are fashion tips on how one can slay in sleeveless without worries.

Color is key

To make all kinds of style statements, explore colors you normally would not. A pop of pink or pastel tones brighten up any outfit, while darker colors create a host of subdued yet stylish looks. Experiment with shades and see what works best for you.

Harmonize accessories

To spice up your sleeveless #OOTD, play with accessories. Spice up your outfits by incorporating smaller pieces that allow you to add new energy to your wardrobe staples. Accessories are meant to be emotional choices, so pick what feels right and don’t overthink it too much.

Balance proportions

One good trick to nailing good style is mastering how to balance proportions. You can achieve this by wearing clothes that fit your body shape. When you want to play with oversized garments, balance things out by keeping the rest of your look fitted. For example, try pairing a tight sleeveless crop top with wide-leg jeans or a puff-shoulder top with straight-leg pants.

Find your style

Developing a signature style can take years, but you can start by creating a mood board of inspirational looks. Remember that personal style is an experiment; you never know what unique looks await you until you’re in the dressing room. Take time to play with colors and shapes to find what looks great on your fantastic body.

Level up your underarm brightening

Dark underarm insecurities keep women from fully expressing themselves through fashion. These worries can lead to self-doubt and eliminate the confidence to wear more breathable, sleeveless clothes.

Women have been in a constant struggle on choosing a deodorant, especially when trying to look their best sleeveless. Should it brighten underarms or will it stain the clothes? Try Rexona Advanced Brightening + Anti-Stain, which vitamins C and E as well as natural lemon extract for naturally brighter underarms and protection from stains on clothes, available in roll-ons, aerosols, and serums at Lazada and major retail stores nationwide.

Second opinion matters
In life, it’s generally good to get the opinion of friends and families. If you’re having doubts about what you’re wearing or how you look, asking for the views and advice of someone close who can be completely honest with you definitely helps.
