Here we are at that “In-Between” time of year again.
Totally bored and unmotivated by the same old things you have been wearing all Fall/Winter but the weather isn’t quite ready for those Spring trends yet. It’s that point in the season when you look through your closet and feel like you have nothing to wear. Maybe you have used up all your winter fashion creativity or maybe you are just sick of winter clothing and the cold weather- either way you have hit a fashion slump.
So what is there to do? Well, I have THREE key ways you can add a punch of style to any look now and through Spring. A little fashion inspo on the cheap using things you already have in your closet!
ONE: Add a Belt to whatever you are wearing. A good belt can TRANSFORM an outfit. Not only does it slim your silhouette into a flattering hourglass it also instantly ups your style factor. Plus, it’s literally a cinch to add this waist-defining extra to a number of looks. Add one to a flowy dress to create shape (you will rarely see me in a dress or a skirt without a belt), add it on-top of a jacket for a luxe street-style vibe or add one to a skirt a tee for visual interest.
TWO: Add a Scarf. This little add-on packs a big punch when it comes to elevating your style. Neck scarves have been all-the-fashion rage for several seasons now but moving into Spring it’s all about the Bow. Instead of rocking that short bandanna style neck scarf try styling a long scarf tied in a bow.
THREE: Denim Jacket. Ahh denim jackets how I love thee, let me count the ways. Not only are they classic, timeless and NEVER go out of style they are also that one piece you can wear with literally ANYTHING and probably already have in your closet! Sometimes you need just one piece to change up your look and pull together a whole new outfit from those tried and true pieces. A denim jacket is that piece. Add it to an evening look to give it edge, pair it with jeans and tee to create depth and throw it on over a dress for a lightweight layer that’s effortlessly chic.
