The easiest way to plan your outfit is by determining the color theme. Keep it simple by only using two or three colors. Generally, neutral tones and jewel tones look more classy and formal over brightly colored ones. Like fashion blogger Jenny Tsang, you may go for an ombre dress from black to gray hues that look more classy over neon yellows and oranges. On the other hand, if you wish for a casual look, go for muted shades and bold colored ones that can be appropriate for your casual weekends.

  1. Choose appropriate fabrics.

Generally, fur, wool, silk, satin, chiffon and such look more formal over denim, rayon, chambray, mesh, and such. Like fashion blogger Dawilda Gonzalez, if you wish to make your studded sweater appropriate for a girl’s night out, dress it up with a feathered or a fur skirt. Sequin dresses, silk skirts, satin tops and such are great for evening affairs. Some leather ensembles can also be great to add some edge to your casual or formal outfits.

  1. Your shoes can dress up or dress down your overall look.

Another way to dress up is by letting your shoes take center stage. Wearing the right shoes can definitely make your outfit pop. If you wish to dress down your dressy outfit, resort to a pair of flats or sneakers. On the other hand, switching from sandals to classic pumps can give your outfit an instant upgrade. Like fashion blogger Nicole Warne, dress up your casual chic outfit if quirky print sweater and pencil skirt with a pair of black pumps that can do the tricks for you.
