How do you feel about your wardrobe right now? I feel that when it comes to my style I’m always looking for ways to upgrade it or make it look fresh without buying completely new outfits (from a sustainability point of view, but also because I live in London and space is quite limited). Now that you know what the inspiration behind this article is, let’s jump into finding out my favourite simple ways to give your wardrobe a fresh look!
1. Wear hair accessories
Yes to hair accessories – probably the only trend that I’m really into at the moment. Pearl clips, marble clips or hair bands, I’m pretty much into anything that can add something to my outfit. Have a think about how you’re going to mix the accessories with your outfits, because they can totally change your overall appearance. Have fun with it!
2. Mix statement tops with high waisted jeans
Absolutely love to do this when I get the chance. Wear a ruffle or big sleeved top with some high waisted jeans and you’re going to take your outfit from boring to impressive. I like how it sits at the border of elegant and casual – making it suitable for many occasions, including cocktail parties, garden birthday parties or even on your holidays. This mix is such a simple way to upgrade your wardrobe and never run out of styles. Enjoy wearing this fun look.
3. Start wearing low heels
I only started wearing heels about a month ago and now we’re rarely apart. They add that wow factor to my outfits and I absolutely love that. It’s strange because I’m like a kid who just discovered chocolate. No, I won’t have a go at eating my shoes, although I love them just as much as I love chocolate. Start wearing low heels and you’ll feel how confident you’re becoming. Confident in yourself and in your own style. Do I need to say that they go with almost anything?
4. Wear statement earrings
Whoop whoop statement earrings are such a wonder. I can wear them for limited time only because I’m allergic to nickel. But, I make sure I’ll enjoy them and get a nice snap while at it. Have you noticed how an outfit can change when you wear bold earrings? I definitely see a big change when I’m wearing bold accessories. It’s really the simplest way to upgrade your wardrobe.
5. Start wearing your belts
The difference belts can make in an outfit. Such a massive one that I was raving about them in this article too. I’m sure you own a belt or two, but never get round wearing them. Choose an outfit that you like from your closet and put a belt around it. You’re going to notice that the outfit will look absolutely stunning. I prefer a medium sized belt with a visible buckle because that will make the most impact on your outfit. Who thought that a belt can upgrade your wardrobe in one second? Quick win!

I’m so happy to share my tips with you! It’s your time to experience new styles this summer and just have fun with it. There are no rules in fashion, besides the most basic ones, so reinvent yourself everyday. What’s your favourite store this season?
Until next time,
