Brand names. We all know them, but how much do we really love them? When wearing brand names, you’ve got to be careful to not plaster them over your entire outfit. Keep it trendy, but also keep it classy. Check out some tips on how to tastefully wear brand names.
Avoid shouting the brand’s name too much
No, we don’t mean literally – this is more about how many times the brand name is emblazoned on your shirt, bag or the back of your jacket. The reasons why people buy branded products vary, but generally it is because they are a believer in high quality and because they want to portray a certain image. That does not, however, mean, that you need to have a brand name scrawled all over every single item that you wear. Wearing an outfit like this can totally devalue the worth of the brand, and it can make you look cheap – not what you want when you’ve spent a lot of money on top quality designer goods!
Mix things up
Ever thought about wearing high street and designer at the same time? Or mixing branded clothing with something reclaimed or vintage? Experimenting with your look this way is a great way to broaden your fashion repertoire, and you create some pretty interesting looks along the way. For example, why not wear the iconic Adidas originals alongside a vintage day dress for a cute and quirky look? Or layer a designer sweater over some distressed, ripped boyfriend jeans. The contrast of old meets new makes for a fascinating vibe and means that your outfit will really stand out in a crowd.
Stick to your personal taste
One mistake many people make when it comes to wearing branded clothes is that they assume that whatever the item is, it will look good simply because a designer has made it. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. You still need to bear in mind a lot of different things when buying top-end fashion – the prime one being whether the piece actually suits you or not. Take into account your body shape and what colors suit you when choosing a branded piece of clothing. No matter how expensive it was, it won’t look good if it’s the wrong shape, size or shade for your body. Remember that money can’t buy taste, so don’t buy something flashy just for the sake of it.
