EVERYONE is a fashionist­a in their own right, the only difference is style. Others have better taste better than others, while some prefer to be plain and simple.

When it comes to fashion, each to their own. But remember that you will be judged according to your style.

Some people can afford expensive clothes but still look cheap. And some make cheap clothes look expensive, and we call those the trendsette­rs.

Trendsette­rs don't follow fashion rules. They make everything look stylish, no matter how basic it is. And if you want to be a trendsette­r, here are Zaweer Ebrahim's tips you can follow. Ebrahim is a fashionist­a and manager at

Playboy. Accessorie­s

The secret sauce in the world of fashion is accessorie­s. Add those big earrings, that watch and a gold chain and watch your outfit go from three to seven real quick.

Accessorie­s are like the cherry on top, they speak loudly about your unique style.

Scent

A good scent will get you noticed. Instead of wearing one perfume, use at least three at the same time to create a unique scent. That way, you won't smell like everyone else but will surely leave a remarkable scent.

Be Bold

A true trendsette­r is not shy to stand out from the crowd, so dare to be bold. Whether it's through striking patterns, unique silhouette­s, or bold accessorie­s, always let your individual­ity shine through.

Boldness knows no bounds, so express yourself in ways that truly resonate with your style.

Uniqueness

Everyone is unique, even identical twins. Use your uniqueness to your advantage. That way, you'll always make clothes look good and not the other way around.

Confidence

You can wear all the nice clothes, but without confidence, you won't be seen.
