With the 2016 Olympics just around the corner, fashion brands are racing to catch up with the trend, while celebs are scrambling to be their own best-sellers.
Here are seven essential tips to get the most out of your outfit during your next big event.
Don’t be afraid to wear something revealing and colorful—that’s what a celebrity should look like.
“It’s important to be bold and be proud of yourself,” said Shari, the executive editor of The Fashion Spot, a fashion website in New York.
Shari and her colleagues have taken their celebrity-themed pieces and edited them to fit the needs of the occasion.
For example, the designers chose a dress that showed off her big breasts and a white blazer with a bold floral pattern.
“I think it’s about showing you care about what you wear,” Shari said.
“If you want to look like the most beautiful person in the world, it’s a good idea to show you care.”
Dress up like a princess—a celebrity’s style is defined by her appearance.
“Be yourself, but don’t dress up like someone else,” said Kaleena Bier, the managing editor of the fashion website The Fashion Blog.
“You’re not going to be able to compete with the real thing.”
“It is so easy to be too cool and not care about the fashion, which is what makes us so insecure,” she added.
“When you wear something, people are going to think, ‘Wow, she’s so confident and so smart.
She should be wearing this.
It’s really good.
She looks amazing.'”
“If we’re wearing something to a show and we want to get a reaction from people, we have to wear it to a big party,” said actress-turned-fashion blogger Ashley Judd, who recently wore a dress by designer Lila Rose to her recent wedding.
Get in shape—you’ll look better for it.
While you might want to be the most stylish person in town, it might not be worth it to wear the wrong clothes to a wedding.
“People don’t understand that they have to look great in the right dress and look good in the wrong dress,” Bier said.
So, instead of getting in shape in the spring and summer, make sure you have a workout routine before your big day.
“Don’t just go out there and do the same things every day,” she said.
“[Get in shape] every day and do it every week.
I do it at least once a week.”
Dress to impress—do you know what the most flattering dress is?
Dressmakers are finding ways to change the way celebrities dress.
“Everybody has the same idea about what a good dress should be,” said Tiffany, the fashion editor of L’Oréal Paris.
Tiffany said she does not wear the exact same clothes each day, but she looks for the right look for each occasion.
“For a show, it would be nice to wear a little more formal.
But then it would make sense to wear dressier things.”
Dress in your signature color—don’t just do something boring and plain.
“The most important thing is that you make it your own,” Biere said.
Biere, a former model, said she is always looking for new and interesting ways to get her message across.
“A lot of celebrities wear something that they feel is their signature color,” she explained.
“We’ve been wearing it in our everyday life, in our daily life, and now it’s time to do something with it.”
Biere also advises celebrities to be authentic and make their look their own.
“What is your style?
What are your strengths?
What do you think people look at when they see you?” she said, adding that it is important to “show your personality, but show your strengths, too.”
Don and Don’t—stay away from a certain color.
“No one’s going to dress in the same colors,” Biers said.
It is important that you choose something that you can blend in with your surroundings.
“In New York City, the color blue is the same color as red, yellow, orange,” Biesler said.
In the same way, don’t try to wear just one color.
Bier and her staff of designers and stylists have designed dress shirts and pants to look just like the actual ones, so you can wear them everywhere.
Choose your outfit wisely—what you wear will determine what you look like at the event.
“Choose what you do, don, and don’t,” Bieres said.
Be careful about what color you wear.
“This is important,” Biest said.
For instance, if you wear a light, dark color to a party, people may not be expecting you to be in a dress.
Instead, you need to go
