Fashion is more than just the clothes you wear and before you even go out shopping for a night out, you need to remember that. It’s important that you know that your day to day wardrobe doesn’t need to be constantly replaced to be different. Every outfit deserves to be complemented with accessories. Think about it: when you go to work, you wear simple and stylish jewellery. When you’re on a night out, that bling clutch bag is by your side all night. Accessories give an outfit some life, some pizzazz. Your accessory choices also say a lot about you as the wearer!

With a few simple accessories, even the outfits that can be boring are totally transformed. Swap the accessories around for each outfit, and you create even more looks. Check out our list of outfit-changing accessories that every gal needs in her wardrobe.

Scarves: Scarves add texture, patterns and layers to outfits that don’t have any. The classic plain white tee with skinny jeans immediately has life breathed into it with a brightly coloured scarf. Tie around the collar, thread through the belt loops or even use them to decorate your handbag. Scarves add a touch of class to even the most casual outfit.

Diamonds: Every girl loves a little sparkle. When you check out the frosting on the hands and ears of the models in the magazines, you cannot help but check out the 2 carat diamond price from Diamond Registry before you buy. Diamonds never go out of fashion, and while jewellery is always an exciting addition to an outfit, diamonds have that little something more that makes you look chic, however you wear them.

Belts: Not just for holding your trousers up, belts can bring your whole look together while also slimming out your waistline. They don’t always have to go through the belt loops, either, with so many larger belts being made to break up play-suits and sit at waist height instead of hip height. By gathering the middle of your outfit in with a belt, you’ve transformed your outfit and fashioned yourself a shape!

Shoes: Every girl loves a stunning pair of heels, whether high or low. Shoes make an outfit look wonderful and you can go from casual to sophisticated and sexy in about five seconds flat. Always match your shoes to your outfit – baggy boyfriend jeans won’t look so good with the latest Louboutin’s, but your power suit at the office will!

Handbags: Big and small, handbags come in many shapes and sizes. Don’t be afraid to go bold with handbag colors, as your plainer outfits can really shine with a beautiful colored bag. Be bold, be brave and let your handbag be a statement that you carry around with you. Check out this website for handbag ideas for your outfits.

Working your accessories into your outfit can make your whole wardrobe change, so don’t be afraid to experiment with what you have. Jazz it up or tone it down – your outfits need some life!

You can’t pinpoint a stylist’s style. They may follow a fashion trend every so often, but most of the time, they come up with their own unique outfits and look ideas. One thing is for sure though; they always look amazing! Here’s your guide to dressing like a stylist so you can make sure all of your outfits are on point!

Experiment With Textures

One thing you’ll notice about pretty much every stylist, is that their outfits are full of amazing textures. This stops them from looking samey and boring, especially if they are wearing an outfit predominantly of one color. For example, an all black outfit could look boring if no texture is used. Experiment with all kinds of different materials and textures in your outfits to keep them looking interesting and full of style.

Practice Layering Your Outfits

Layering your outfits is another key to keeping it interesting. The great thing about layering, is that it’s great for transitional weather when you’re not sure what you should be wearing. You can easily add layers or take them away as the weather changes. It can take a little practice to get this right, but you will get the hang of it in no time. When layering, it’s a good idea to experiment with hem lengths and things like that too.

Always Accessorize

You should never dress without considering what accessories you’re going to wear. Accessories help to enhance your outfit. Make sure you have a selection of accessories to choose from, from evening bags to necklaces. You can then choose accessories that make your outfit pop.

The Trick To Making Any Outfit Look Great

Did you know that there’s a little trick to making any outfit look great? You could be wearing jeans and a t-shirt, or a plain dress, but this trick will always work. Choose a smart pair of shoes, a luxurious looking bag, and a pair of nice sunglasses. They can be any style and color of course, but black will go with anything. Try it and you won’t believe what a difference it can make to your outfits!

Belt Up

The right belt can make an outfit look more pulled together. It can make even the plainest of outfits look amazing, and give you a bit of shape to boot. Skinny belts and thick belts work; it’s all down to what you prefer and suits your shape best.

Never Mix More Than 2 Prints Or 2 Clashing Colors

Stylists seem to be amazing at mixing prints and clashing colors. But there’s a rule if you want to start doing this. You shouldn’t mix more than 2 prints at once, or more than 2 clashing colors. By sticking to the rule of 2, you’ll be able to rock just about any look with ease!
Dressing like a stylist might take some practice, and you might even need to reassess your wardrobe to incorporate some better pieces, and get rid of those you don’t wear. However, it shouldn’t be long before your outfits are worthy of their own Instagram account!

I think the worst part of seasonal transitions (besides the allergies) is trying to figure out how the heck to dress. When I put this outfit on last week, it wasn’t because it was perfect planned. It was a happy accident after standing in front of my closet in silence for approximately 20 hours and trying on several million combinations or skirts and tops and tights and boots. That may be an exaggeration- but this was at least the third outfit that I attempted. I was pretty happy with it.

The coat actually made its debut last year, but I upgraded the buttons to a tortie/ gold combo and it just feels way more lush. If there has been an upside to this drawn-out winter, it’s that I’m actually getting to wear the coats that I couldn’t when, you know, it was 75 degrees on Christmas.

What? TWO posts today?

Let me explain. I obviously got way too into my feelings in my last post to make it about anything other than the music and my feelings about the music and loving Yellowcard and memories involving Yellowcard. I couldn’t bring myself to make those words about my outfit or accessories. It didn’t seem right or authentic or very me.

But I did want to share with you the adorable custom iPhone case I made with Caseapp. So here we are- my casual Friday outfit details from last week. You can make a custom case for your iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy, MacBook and more with their unique designing tool! I honestly just googled “gold marble” to get the background for mine, but I think I’m going to go back and get this design in a “tough” case. You can kind of edit their pre-made designs as well so I think I’ll still add my logo since I love all things personalized. Don’t get me wrong- I love how my case looks I just think I need to up the ante since I’m clumsy and tend to drop my phone all the time. Luckily for me,  Caseapp is having a black Friday sale. You can use the code BLACK25 (valid Nov 24th – 27th) to get 25% off your custom phone cases/ custom laptop skins.

You can imagine my shock and disgust at myself when, as soon as the weather started warming up, I discovered that neither one of my seersucker dresses fit. #WompWomp But mama D to the rescue! She found this little number while on vacation and it magically fit perfectly. I love the scallop and captains wheel details. I also love that my job is pretty loose with the dress code, so I can pull off the look on a Tuesday as easily as I can on a Sunday.

Of course nothing compliments seersucker like a monogram or 2. And nothing goes with navy like a couple shades of pink. What was especially great was the fact this look carried me from work to drinks on my friend’s deck that afternoon and there was nothing stuffy about it.
