5 Tips and Tricks for Making the Most of LuLaRoe Outfits
The cheerful prints and vibrant colors that LuLaRoe specializes in have earned the brand a place in the hearts (and wardrobes) of so many men, women and children around the world.
Their incredible range of designs, colors and patterns make it easy to put together such distinct and unique outfits, especially when you have these five styling tips and tricks on your side!
1. Go Ahead and Mix Those Prints
Many people are afraid of mixing prints, but you really don’t need to be…
Just make sure that the colors in each of the prints complement each other, and that you have some variety when it comes to the scale of each print.
With so many prints available at LuLaRoe, you can really get creative when it comes to mixing them.
Need some inspiration?
Try a floral Jill Skirt with a striped Amy Shirt. The beautiful silhouette created by the voluminous skirt and the cropped blouse will end up drawing more attention to your outfit than the prints themselves.
A floral Maxi Skirt with a printed Classic T will also have the same effect, so long as you tuck the t-shirt in.
2. Get Creative with the Skirts
It always helps to justify buying a new item of clothing when you are able to use it in more than one way.
Well, this is something that you can definitely do with the skirts from LuLaRoe, with the Maxi Skirt, the Cassie and the Azure working especially well for this.
Try some of these ideas:
- Wear a skirt as a strapless dress or top
- Turn a skirt into a halter top
- Tie a skirt around your neck like a scarf
3. Get Creative with the Shirts
The LuLaRoe skirts aren’t the only things you can get creative with – try experimenting with some of their shirts too!
The Irma shirt is especially multi-functional, as this can easily be turned into a halter top. You could also try the shirt as a strapless top, and even a strapless dress if you go for a slightly larger size.
Tying in a knot at the front of your shirt is another great hack. This gives you a much sleeker, more sophisticated silhouette, even if you are just wearing a casual t-shirt. Alternatively, add your knot in at the back, which is something that works better with a longer top.
4. Ruche It Up
Ruching and pleats can immediately transform a garment, and LuLaRoe’s clothing lends itself perfect to some DIY ruching.
Wondering how to do this?
Simply gather up some fabric, such as at either side of a shirt, and then secure them there to create the ruching effect. PoppyClips, which are strong magnetic clips, are ideal for this. They hold folds of clothing together in an inconspicuous way, without causing any holes in the actual garment.
Of course, safety pins are always another option, but you need to be careful that you don’t cause any damage to your clothing.
Another creative way to add in some ruching would be with the use of a handful of coins.
Sounds crazy, right?
It really works, and can be done with just about every LuLaRoe shirt, from the Nicole to the Julia.
When wearing the shirt, place the quarters on the outside of your shirt, in the place that you want the center of the ruche to be (you may need to hold your shirt outwards from the hem to prevent the coins from falling down). Then, reach for the coins from the inside of your shirt, grabbing onto them to form a little bundle. Use a hair tie to hold this in place.
When you pull your shirt back down and look at it from the outside, you will see that the bundle of coins hang down in a way that creates a beautiful star-shaped gather. Try doing this at the side of a shirt, to draw attention to your hips, or at the center of the neckline for a slimming effect.
5. Invest in Solids
Can’t decide which LuLaRoe item to treat yourself to next?
The safest bet would be to go for something in a solid color.
Yes, the brand produces some stunning prints, but solids work well with just about everything.
When you do find a print that you fall in love with, you will likely be able to easily style these with the solids you already own. This will draw focus and attention to the print you are wearing, which is something that you will likely want to do if you have managed to bag yourself a unicorn!
LuLaRoe is all about creating freedom in fashion, and they have definitely done this with the designs that they have produced so far. Each one enables the wearer to have fun and get creative with their clothing, making it easy for everyone to add their own personality to their outfits.
