Have you ever tried on a dress or a top that looked really great on your figure but you just felt it looked boring? Yeah, me too! I love simplicity, but sometimes you just yearn for something a little more exciting….and less boring. I have never been one to wear a ton of colors or a whole lot of accessories, but I believe we have all faced the dilemma of trying to figure out how to take a basic look and turn it into something really fabulous. Well, I have the answers for you! There are some simple things that you can do that will instantly take your looks from boring to chic in no time.
5 Ways To Accessorize Your Look
With a little planning and creativity you will be able to take a simple outfit and bring it to life in a really fun way that will make you feel really amazing. Learning the art of accessorizing with layers, jewelry, scarves, shoes and makeup will really amp up your style to another level. So let’s dive right into some solutions that will help you turn up your simple looks a notch with a little accessorizing.
Add A Pop of Color.
If you want a basic tee or your favorite jeans to really come to life, add a colorful clutch or a bright lip color! When you do this, your entire look is pulled together with one main focus. You are making a statement through color and that makes any look pretty fabulous.
Throw on your favorite cardigan and layer up your look for some major chicness. There are so many styles of cardigans to choose from and you are bound to find one that really flatters your outfit and makes it stand out.
Add A Bold Accessory.
I really love statement necklaces and bracelets, and a simple outfit creates the perfect combination with this type of jewelry. This is the time to pull your biggest and brightest piece of jewelry to rock out.
Heels Up The Ante.
Once you put on a pair of heels you instantly take your look from casual to chic. Heels can be paired with anything, including: shorts, jeans, skirts, and trousers. A pair of fabulous pumps or sandals will always have heads turning your way.
Scarves & Belts.
If you want to add some real flair to your simple outfit, scarves and belts are the perfect way to do it. You can wear scarves as a belt, in your hair, and around your neck. The options are truly endless. Belts offer a way to bring a little edge to your outfit or can offer a very polished look, depending on the style that you choose.
