Nowadays, you’re probably just spending most of your days sitting in front of your laptop or phone, but even so, you should still make sure you’re looking your absolute best. Don’t compromise your style even if other people only see your chest up in conference calls. Why? Looking good actually helps you feel good, and goodness knows we need plenty of help to do that nowadays. But not to worry; you don’t even have to break the bank to keep looking stylish and classy. Here’s a rundown of smart ways you can show your style while staying on-budget.
Your wardrobe should always include timeless clothing pieces that you can mix and match as you please. If you do it right, you could make about a dozen different OOTD combinations with just a few pieces. These crucial pieces should be anything you can pull off the rack to create a new look, like LBDs, comfy high heels, white sneakers, and a crisp, white button-down. There’s a reason they’re called classics, after all.
Current trends are just that — current. They may stay, but more often than not, most of them go. The clothes you see on the runway may look pretty, but are they wearable? Just think of how many previously-trendy items you have in your closet that are now just gathering dust! Now don’t get us wrong, if you really like a trend, by all means, participate! Fashion’s supposed to be fun! But in general, it’s best to stick to items you know you’ll use and wear, so shop according to whatever style you’ve built for yourself.
Style isn’t just clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories. It’s a way to showcase your personality because style is personal, and you’re introducing yourself through what you’re wearing. So whether you’ve figured out what looks good on you or you’re only starting to build your own style, you have to be confident, trust yourself, and let your style stay true to who you are.
But during this period when you’re not seeing anyone physically, showing off your style and personality could be quite the challenge. But isn’t that what social media is for? That’s why your phone’s your best style sidekick — which is exactly why it needs to be as savvy as you are. So say hello to the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, the stylish smartphone every fashionista must have.
Style isn’t just about your clothing. It involves your whole ensemble, including your accessories. And one of the most important accessories is your phone. Imagine getting dressed to the nines and using a phone that conks out while you’re taking a selfie? All your effort wasted.
That’s why you should choose Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Lite as your new phone. It’s designed for the fashionable young generation, so you can choose from a variety of fresh color options: boba black, bubblegum blue, and peach pink. Thin, light, and stylish, the Mi 11 Lite is fashionable and easy to carry around.
It doesn’t end there. With the Mi 11 Lite, you can watch shows in HD, attend video conferences and be seen clearly, film vlogs with the HD cameras, play games, and work for long hours with no problem.
It’s actually a state of mind. We already said it: looking good makes you feel good. But it also goes the other way. When you feel good, your style follows and you look good. And feeling good includes taking care of your mind and body through self-care techniques like exercising, meditation, eating healthy, and maintaining a clean, healthy environment. Your body is your canvas for the art that is your style, so make sure you’re taking care of it, too.
Style goes hand in hand with knowledge, too. You need to learn the basics of fashion at the very least, so that you can recognize what looks good on you and what doesn’t. You can gather style inspiration and watch fashion tutorials and classes on Youtube, Coursera, and other similar platforms with your Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. You can enjoy watching fashion videos for long hours with the Mi 11 Lite’s 4,250mAh battery and 33W fast charging capacity. Plus, you can even process and store enormous amounts of data with its 8+128 GB storage capacity. All these would give you a clearer vision of what you need in your wardrobe, while also allowing you to develop your style!
After you’ve built and familiarized yourself with your own style, you should also learn how to show it off properly. Of course, the best way to show it off is through photos — you get to show off and document your style at the same time. But before you click that shutter button, make sure you know what angles and smiles work for you. Get in front of the camera of your Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite and practice your poses. Some might make you look sweet and charming; others might make you look fierce and harsh. You need to find your best angles, so you can control how you want yourself and your style to come off on your photos.
They may seem like such “steals”, but you shouldn’t also let yourself be lured in by bargains and discount tags. It’s not bad to make the most out of huge markdowns (especially for good brands!), but make sure you actually do need that piece. Don’t buy something simply because they’re on sale. Buy it because you’re going to use it. Just like the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, which is fashionable, functional, and worth every penny — all for an affordable price of PHP 14,990. You can purchase the Mi 11 Lite through Authorized Mi Stores and partner retailers nationwide as well as through Lazada.
