Over It? Find Your Fit!

Pulling, tugging, yanking. Nope, we’re not describing a new dance challenge but how you constantly feel when you wear that new dress or cute off-the-shoulder top. Fashion can be a girl’s best friend but sometimes once the clothes come out of the bag + on you, it doesn’t feel or look like the perfect match. Before you blame the store lighting or the unrealistic mannequin sizes, check out these 4 tips that will never have your look falling flat again:

Umm Different Size?- Okay, we get that you can squeeze into a smaller size but the only problem is that you can’t exhale. When you’re shopping shake any beauty standards + sizes out of your head and simply go for a fit that is comfortable to you. Even if it’s a larger size than you’re used to buying, you’ll feel + look more comfy. And the same rule applies if you need to go for a smaller fit too!

Underneath It All- Just like the chic condos you see downtown, the outside structure wouldn’t look so glamorous if they didn’t have a good foundation. And yes, we’re talking about the magic of an amazing bra when it comes to your foundation. Not only will you see a major improvement in how your clothes fit but you can retire the “tug + pull” move you sneak to readjust your bra around campus. Need some guidance of where you can snag the perfect one? We have you covered! True & Co. will give you fit, comfort + confidence all wrapped into one. A TRUE-ly amazing bra can seriously change your entire life. Trust us now + thank us later!

Trend Overload!- We completely get that there’s a brand new trend every time you scroll on Instagram or hit play on YouTube BUT that doesn’t mean you have to wear them all. The beauty about style is that you have key pieces that are your staples which anchors your look. After finding pieces you absolutely love + that represents you then you can filter what trends work well for you. Never feel pressured to rock something that doesn’t help tell your personal fashion story.

Kick Up The Confidence- And last but not least is owning + slaying every piece you’re wearing. Many times your outfit looks great and the only piece that’s keeping it from being runway-worthy is you second guessing yourself. Word of advice: Get out of your head and step into who you are. Remember, you’re always the cool girl in the room simply because you create the environment + does not let the environment create you.

So rock on, Rockstar, rock on.

Style Diary x Maya!

Scroll through the style diary of D.C. college blogger, Maya Fleming:

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
I’m not really into trends (and I can’t really keep up). With that being said, I love comfortable style, so I’ve really been feeling athleisure trends. Matching sweat sets (cropped crewnecks are my favorite) and sneakers are two trends that I can’t get enough of. I’m also really excited about nostalgic fashion and how everyone is into 80’s and 90’s brands and logos. It gives me a reason to go thrift hunting!

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
If I only had 30 seconds, I would most definitely grab my Levi’s denim jacket, my favorite black ankle booties, and my camel beret.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
My style changes with my mood, so I definitely have more than one icon. Right now, one of my icons is Monica Brown because I love how she manages to stay on top of trends and hot brands without overdoing it and losing herself. Zendaya is also a huge inspiration because I love how laid-back her at-home style is while her red carpet style is all about ground breaking styles and amazing silhouettes. Her chocolate August Getty dress at the MTV awards was EVERYTHING!

Getting ready in the morning can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
When I’m in a time crunch, I almost always gravitate towards a striped top (I have way too many), a pair of dark jeans, booties, and my denim jacket. It’s a classic look that works for most settings.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My number one style rule is to stay true to yourself. If you aren’t feeling a look or trend, it will show, and the look will still bomb no matter how amazing the pieces are. Be comfortable in what you’re wearing, and let yourself shine through. Style is meant to be a means of expression, so tell us who you are!
