The real reason why celebrities always look so well-dressed is because they have stylists. But in truth, regular fashionistas can also rock their own chic looks if they just put a bit more effort in styling their clothes. It doesn't need to be as complicated as looking for pegs, searching shops for clothes, and filtering out the options. 

All you need are these 5 basic principles of celebrity styling!  


Principle # 1: Layer Clothes

Layering clothes isn't just for the cold season, it's also essential in looking like a celebrity. Imagine seeing someone in top, jeans, and sneakers combo and compare it to someone wearing a top, leather jacket, jeans, and sneakers combo. Doesn't the latter one look more fabulous? You can layer tops, jackets, coats, bandanas, scarves, and cover-ups to look dressier than usual!

Principle 2: Accessorize With Glam

If you really want to acheive that celebrity look, then you have to remember that accessories are as vital as your clothes. They define your overall style--whether it be basic, edgy, boho, or classy. The safest choice are gold accessories and minimalist jewellery so you can achieve glam in an instant! 

Principle 3: Inject Your Personality

Rihanna's style is distinguishable from Beyonce's style and vice versa. Same goes for almost all A-list celebrities out there. Each of them making their own mark in the fashion industry. With every look, they make sure they inject their personalities and let their style shine through. For a celebrity, it's not always about what's trending, it's about their personality speaking through their clothes and creating the trend. So go ahead and pour your personality into everything you wear.

Principle 4: Make It Look Effortless

Celebrities have the talent to make their outlits look so perfectly put-together, it's like they didn't think about it at all. The secret to that is obvious--just don't think too about it too much. Don't overdo it. Less is more. But if you do have to put more, make sure it's a fashion statement and not a costume-y outfit. 

Principle #5: Strut In Statement Shoes

Have you even seen celebrities walking in a pair of drab, worn-out, ugly shoes? No. Shoes can make or break your outfit. That's why celebrities make it point to buy the best pairs they can get their hands on. These shoes don't have to be expensive, they just have to look stylish and be of good quality.

White heels may not be the most popular choice for an everyday OOTD, but since it is a special day, why not? Wearing white is also a statement in itself. You can pair it with a monochrome outfit or match it with red accessories for a chic SG50 look!

Of course, the most effortless choice is to wear a red lippie! Pick a bright red or true red shade for an eye-catching pout. Amp it up a notch by wearing white eyeshadow blended together with grey or brown shades for a classic, muted eye look.

You can literally wear red on your skin by putting on a skincare product that's made from red ingredients. Estee Lauder's Nutritious range is made from 8 antioxidants, the main one being pomegranate, a red fruit that is chock-full of antioxidants!
