Do you belong to the 5%-10% of the population who always look effortlessly stylish? Think of all the supermodels, top actresses, maybe even a few friends.. If not, welcome to the sisterhood of looking-effortless-requires-alot-of-work.
For example, the picture below looks pretty natural/effortless but trust me, I had to ‘work’ to create this look..
If I was to truly go effortless, the result would be something similar to this (I swear I am not kidding) –
Usually women who look like supermodels are automatically assumed to have effortless style even if they are wearing a simple tee and shorts. If I wore the exact same outfit, I swear I’ll be considered far from stylish. No offense to these wonderful ladies (not their fault that our perception of beauty is so limited) but this is the sad reality we live in and see everyday.. This puts so much pressure on young girls to look a certain way and skews their perception of beauty. I hope we all can do our bit to make these young girls feel beautiful and confident in their own skin. In the end, how a girl feels about herself is such a huge factor that contributes to how happily, confidently and successfully she leads her life.
Now give me that nobel prize, will ya!? lol ok after that lame attempt at humor, let’s talk about the look for this post. Obviously I wanted to create a look that would scream how naturally stylish I am. Who am I kidding!? It took me atleast an hour and alot of back and forth to create something that could remotely be called effortless or stylish 😝 The accessories, hairstyle, flowers.. all these pieces played a huge role in getting that effortless vibe.
Don’t be disheartened if wearing a simple dress does not transform you into a style icon. Remember what you see on the internet is the best version of an individual and there is alot more that goes on behind the closed curtains.😊 – Love, M ❤️
