Are your outfits falling flat, or maybe you just want to add something new to your everyday style? Either way, there’s never any harm in jazzing up your look. While it may be the perfect excuse for a shopping trip, you don’t have to completely overhaul your wardrobe. Instead, change up your current pieces and add in some new accessories or ways of styling certain pieces, without breaking the bank. Here are just a few ways you can look more put together, even on your lazy days.
Tuck your tees
Known as the ‘french tuck’, tucking in the front portion of your t-shirt is a trendy way to change up your look. Ideal for adding shape to oversized t-shirts, it’s ideal for casual occasions and semi-formal workwear. Pair fitted suit trousers, tuck in a loose fitted tee and add a blazer. Top it all off with some layered necklaces and heels for the ultimate business-casual look. For casual occasions, tuck the front of your tee into your choice denim and pair with low top trainers. By tucking in your t-shirt, you flatter your figure and add a more interesting look to simple outfits.
The ultimate summer accessory, a pair of fashionable sunglasses can make your outfit look far more put together – even if it’s just a basic tee and denim shorts combo. Invest in some sunnies in different shades; while you may be tempted to stick to black, having some colourful frames adds a pop of colour to your look. Sunglasses are guaranteed to never go out of style due to how practical they are, protecting your vision while adding a focal point to your outfit.
Whether you’re a floppy hat person or prefer something more subtle, hair accessories are one of the easiest ways to upgrade your outfit. Hide your bad hair days by adding hats, hair clips and hairbands to your look. Go even more ‘out there’ by using a silk scarf, weaving it through a braid for a simple yet stylish hairstyle. You can never go wrong with a hat, particularly during summer. Casual baseball caps have become increasingly popular over the last year, as are baker boy hats should you want something more suitable for late-night drinks with your friends.
Rather than throwing on your usual necklaces or plain pair of earrings, try something new. Statement pieces are designed to attract attention, adding a finishing touch to plain dresses and simple looks. Necklaces are a great choice, especially when paired with lower cut tops and dresses. It doesn’t have to be a big and bold necklace though, even a pair of dainty dangling earrings with a hint of sparkle will do. So long as it’s eye-catching and brings something new to the look, you’re good to go. Whether you’re heading out in a pair of cosy joggers or dressing up to the nines, these tips can make your outfit look much more put together – even if you did just throw on the first thing that caught your eye. Have fun experimenting with your style and don’t take it too seriously – so long as you’re confident and comfortable, you already look great.
