We all want to look better in photos. Lucky for us, fashion girls have been demonstrating some of their key tricks that lead to both cool outfits and flattering photos. We’re predicting that these styling ideas are going to be big soon, so naturally, we wanted to round them up here.
A number of these styling tricks really come down to layering. Instead of just pairing a dress with heels, fashion girls have been wearing theirs over jeans. A cool way to style the look is by throwing a T-shirt on underneath—leave your wrap dress open but belted. Not only does this breathe new life into a dress you might already have, but it also looks great in photos. Or you might try the wrap top—a cool update on the corset top we’re predicting will be huge in the coming months. The piece can be layered over button-down tops to lend a waist-cinching effect. Want to find out more of the flattering styling tricks?
