- Test out a statement blazer or coat.
Slip into a blazer with a unique detail, like lace sleeves or shoulder embellishments and team it with neutral separates for a well-balanced look. If you’re not a fan of embellishments, try going for a plastic-like or transparent blazer or coat that will create interest on your flirty outfits. Unique and unexpected, transparent coats can be stylish and functional essential in the colder season. Just go for a lightweight blazer or vest in the summer if you wish to add some polish to your outfits.
- Layer like a pro.
Apart from topping your outfit with a coat or blazer, extend your layering styles with turtlenecks, button-down shirts, dresses, jackets, and tops. Like fashion stylist Liz Uy, always keep the interest going by giving some contrast on your textures just like wearing a fur coat with a pair of sequin pants and a knitted top. The key is to keep the balance and structure of whatever outfit you’re wearing.
- Carry a playful bag or clutch.
Even if the rest of your outfit is subdued, a stylish bag or a quirky clutch can add the perfect dose of fun to your ensemble. If you’re a preppy type of girl, think of Mickey Mouse shaped bags that will look perfect with your printed dresses and skirts. Since it’s summer, think of tropical fruits that might inspire your style such as carrying a watermelon clutch with your playful outfit, as well as a mango-shaped bag with your leopard coat.
- Opt for statement footwear.
Shoes can make or break your look, so go for ones that give harmony to your overall outfit. If you have a minimalist style, pay attention to structures on your footwear just like wearing a pair of gladiator sandals or architectural heels with your chic outfit. On the other hand, if you’re wearing muted and simple outfit and wish for a trendy look, go eccentric on your footwear choices such as picking ones with fur details, bright colors, and creative prints. This way, you’ll instantly make your ordinary outfits looks more interesting and stunning.
