Not everyone is able to afford themselves the latest designer Spring-Summer dresses for 2012. But everyone can look stylish and beautiful in any clothing. The trick to looking your best through any season is knowing how to style yourself. When it comes to appearance, one must look beyond the trendy clothes and actually think about how you could represent your perception through your body. This means moulding your hair, face, and every inch of your physique into a chic form of art.

One of the most important tips when dressing yourself is to think about what your activities will be for the day, and matching it with what you wear. If you're doing something athletic, it would be best if you put on one that allows movement from all angles. For this, you have the choice of going with a skirt, shorts or jersey pants. To narrow down your options, you must also consider where you are going and who you're meeting. See, if you are doing something athletic for just a while and then going out with friends for drinks afterwards, you'd want something that would enable you to move and yet adapt seamlessly as a day and night time ensemble. Then, you'd end up with a pair of shorts. But then, if the weather is a bit cold, you might want to take a trench coat with you for protection.

Additionally, you also have to think about how you can complement your garment with accessories. As a trendsetter, you should never be afraid to accentuate your body. But what you have to remember is to choose only one area of focus. If you have these gorgeous chandelier earrings you'd like to wear, then leave your neck bare and minimalize on your extremities. If you'd like to wear layers of bangles, the same thing applies with the rest of your body. Always pay attention to cut, texture, color and contrast. If you have a loud or busy patterned outfit on, you should not contradict its effects with an intricate jewellery piece. If you are wearing something that shows off your legs and arms, place your add ons on that area, for example, for your legs, you could wear anklets. If you are wearing something that's pastel, don't drown your ornaments out by choosing something of a different color. You might believe that wearing pink over pink is cute - it's actually very tacky.

Then, you have to consider your personal sensibility - how you feel, and what you want to appear like. That way, you can translate it through your outfits. See, it takes a certain level of comfort and confidence to pull off ensembles and make them look good, despite them being out of fashion. If you do not believe in what you are wearing, then you will not look good, even in expensive, trendy clothes. You could wear a vintage dress or fishnet stocking, regardless of what the fashion experts' advice are, and still make yourself look chic. All you need to do is identify yourself with the clothes, and you will wear them perfectly. Dresses for 2012 will be all about the Dragon colors, bold prints and classic-modern twists. But even with just jeans and a T-shirt, you can bet you'll still look fabulous if you follow the aforementioned tips.
