You can also check my 10-wardrobe-essentials-every-girl-needs here to know what you need in your wardrobe.
While investing in accessories you need to be careful on how you pair them with your outfit, the best thing to do here is to avoid exceeding 3 accessories per outfit.
For example you can have a cute hat, watch and handbag paired with a neutral outfit , the rule here is not to do too much with your accessories.
If it is for a daily / office look and you don’t want to look like you are doing too much for accessories you can wear a cute necklace or a bracelet and some sunglasses ( if it is a sunny day).
Vintage jewelry add a luxury touch to your outfit.
For a day out with your friends or in the weekend during the sunny days you can add a hat to compliment your look.
If you are not a big fan of jewelries another accessory that really elevate your look it is an outstanding bag.
You can pair a very casual look with a designer bag and it adds a chic touch to your look.
You can be wearing really nice clothes and still not look hot because your hair are undone or the hairstyle you have doesn’t add with the whole look.
The hairstyle is part of your look darling the way you invest on your looks make sure you also invest in your hair .
Make sure your hair look nice before going out if you don’t feel like doing your hair you can wear a head wrap or a hat to cover it up.

4. WEAR AN OUTSTANDING PRINT
Another tip to elevate your look is to wear one statement print (it can be a trend or not) and dress around it.
While preparing your outfit you can ask yourself:
- What is going to make my look stand out?
- Am I going to wear a casual or a chic look? Which look am I going for?
When you are dressing up a given print / pattern make sure to pair it with items that makes it stand out and shine, don’t wear too much prints at the same time.
An outstandig item can be for example animal print shoes, blazer, skirt or pants it can be any items that catches people attention.
5. WEAR A BLAZER
A blazer is one of the items that REALLY elevate any type of look and it is one of my favorite peice in my wardrobe.
This is one of the item you can wear anytime and anywhere. If you feel like your outfit is not coming out as you want add a blazer it will completly change the look.
You can pair a blazer with a graphic tee and a blue jean for a casual look , you can add a pair of boots to make it more fashion.

it may be scary but in order to change things you need to try new things.
You can have a wardrobe full of clothes and still struggle with the question “ what am I wearing today?” the problem is not that you don’t have what to wear but it is that you don’t know how to style what you have or you are too scared to try new things.
