Would you add anything to the list?
1. JOIN PINTEREST
Pinterest is a major Godsend when you’re in need of some style inspiration. We could spend hours (quite literally), scrolling on Pinterest, making mood boards and coming up with new outfit ideas. It’s a great way to get a fresh take on how you can style pieces that are already in your wardrobe.
Accessories can change the entire look of an outfit. A statement necklace can work absolute wonders, resurrecting an old outfit, making it look chic and glamorous. Hats, sunglasses and bags can have the same effect too.
3. EMBRACE COLOURS & PATTERNS
I think most of you would agree with me when I say we’re all quite fond of wearing black. It’s a fail-safe trusty tone that will never go out of style. However, a pop of colour every now and then doesn’t do any harm, especially if you want to try something new. If you’re hesitant about the brighter shades, softer pastel hues are fab. Incorporating patterns into your look can also add some fun and personality.
4. MIX & MATCH YOUR DRESSY AND CASUAL PIECES
I think it’s a well-known fact that we regularly fan-girl over Olivia Palermo’s flawless style on pippa.ie. She often mixes her formalwear with simpler high street pieces and seems to make it work. We just adore this idea. It means you can get more wear out of things in your wardrobe that would otherwise just be left sitting there. Style your tulle midi skirt with a tee tucked in for cocktails with the girls. See? So handy!
5. ROCK A BOLD LIP MORE
Never underestimate the power of a bold lip. You’d be amazed by how much you can change the whole look of an outfit by simply wearing red lipstick. Why not give it a try? You might just love it. 😉
6. BE BRAVE, TAKE A RISK
It can be so easy to cling onto the familiar but every now and then you need to get out of your comfort zone. If you have something in your wardrobe, which you love but have been too afraid to wear in public in the past, put it on. It’s something new and it could mark the beginning of breaking out of your style rut.
7. NEVER SAY NEVER
This Alexa quote is so on point. Don’t limit yourself to what you think you can and can’t wear. There’s no harm in trying things out. Remember, as long as you feel confident and comfortable, that’s all that matters.
