Your signature style defines your individuality so it must always look flattering and expressive for you. However, it may easily fall in a fashion uniform that makes you feel wearing the same look over and over again. So, think of adding a few simple twists to spark your tired-and-true look, whether it’s classic, trendy, feminine, minimalist or somewhere in between.
Add a little structure to your style.
If you’re style is minimalist, you must think of adding some structure to your style so you’ll create an interesting look even you wear neutral colors and muted shades. This can be as simple as going for a structured bag and shoes that will create a cohesive look. On the other hand, if your style is bohemian and you love long, billowy skirts, ethnic jewelry, fringe bags, and chunky sandals, balance your hippie look with a tailored blazer or a boxy tee that looks completely fresh and smart.
Introduce some colors and prints to your outfit.
The quickest way to recharge that closet of classics is with color. If you’re a fan of monochromatic outfits, think of a floral blazer or brightly colored clutch that will refresh your style. Just a couple of tiny touches, such as a high-voltage layering piece and vibrantly trimmed heels, are enough to create a major impact without losing an ounce of refinement. If you have that romantic style like fashion blogger Ella Catliff, simply stick to the shades of pink and make your accessories a bit brighter than your outfit then you’re good to go.
Create interest with texture and fabric contrast.
There are still plenty of clean lines and graphic shapes here to keep a less-is-more fanatic happy. If your style is minimalist, give your simple silhouettes new depth by going for a touch-enticing bag, blazer, or skirt. A fringed bag can add some bohemian feel to your casual outfit while a pair of frayed short will make your casual look more laidback and cool.
Incorporate edgy details and accessories.
Whether you have vintage, casual, or preppy style, a bit of edge can be done by wearing studded jackets, metallic tank tops, or even metallic accessories. Like fashion blogger Jane Aldridge, add some edge to your vintage dress by topping it with a studded leather jacket that will look hip and urban. Also, think of peep-toe boots, tuxedo blazers, and motorcycle vests that can also do the tricks for you.
Mix modern ensembles with retro pieces.
If you have an eye for vintage pieces, make your look more fashion-forward by wearing modern ensembles with vintage ones. You may contrast your “old” estate jewelry, a Peter Pan collar shirt, pussy bow blouse, and Mary Jane shoes with “new” pieces like a cross-body bag, a structured jacket, or a quirky bag that can do the tricks for you. By revamping your signature style, you’ll keep your looks unique and fashion-forward like every street style star.
