Five essentials required to make a true fashion statement

Everyone aspires to be a trendsetter, here are five ways to become one

July 16, 2010

A true fashion statement is a lot more than the right ensemble and killer heels. We have all pushed ourselves to stand out among the crowd and make a statement. Everybody aspires to be a trendsetter but creating a relaxed approach to styling oneself is what true fashion is all about. Fashion is about more than what you wear, it’s also about how you carry it from day to day.

Here are the top five essentials to make the perfect fashion statement:

Accessories that accessorise

Accessories that take your look from fab to fabulous are ideal for making a fashion statement. Enhance round necklines with statement necklaces and accentuate your neckline with long dangling earrings and pulled-back hair. Pile on the bracelets, but mix metals, beads and stones to make a maximum impact. These accessory looks are very convenient to try as well, so feel free to experiment.

Gadgets that work their charm

How can one even make a statement without carrying a smartphone? A true fashionista needs a smartphone and is the one that stays on top of the latest trends, be it on Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, or the World Wide Web. In such cases, a phone that enhances your appeal goes a long way. The good thing is that the OPPO F3 Deepika edition is a fantastic example of this. Thanks to the #BeautyMeetsTech collaboration between OPPO and L’Oreal Paris, fashionistas don't just buy the F3 Rose Gold edition with Deepika Padukone’s laser signature engraved on the back, but also get the L’Oreal Paris Matte Moist Lipstick along with it!

A comfortable outfit

One of the other ultimate statement is to wear pieces that you are comfortable with. Not all of us have the ideal body type and figure to look great in everything. This is why wearing something that you feel absolutely comfortable with is a great way to stay in your comfort zone and yet look amazing.

Something old school

Old is gold. Ever noticed that fashion keeps on repeating itself? Therefore, in order to make a statement, take inspiration from the past. This is a great way to stand out. Red lips, a great perfume, winged eyeliner; there is a reason they are all here to stay. After all, they look good on everyone! These age-old fashion ideas have been tried and tested, and they can never go wrong

And last but not the least, confidence is the utmost important essential you need in order to make the best possible fashion statement. Unlike any outfit or accessory, confidence adds that extra buzz to one’s appearance. And that’s why the inevitable key to making a fashion statement is to be confident in your own look. Wear what you like and own your personal style!
