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! Tag me on Instagram at @notagirlygal for me to check out your take on belts.

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?

With its beautiful colours, blooming flowers, warm weather and endless outfit possibilities, summer is making its way to the United Kingdom. As the Brits love the sun (and not only) just as much as the bees love pollen, you can expect lots of good vibes on the streets and a fashion freedom that sometimes can be taken to the extremes. I’ve taken a step back from the long pattern dresses and midi skirts that are trending right now, making girls look like farm keepers (everyone is really free to wear whatever, but this trend is not for me). If you’re done with that look, I’m proposing you a summer outfit that you have to try out now by using clothes you already have in your wardrobe!

Search your wardrobe for work shirts

We all have shirts that we wear to business meetings or more corporate events (do you love this word too?) and it would be a fashion waste not to wear them outside work, obviously styled in a different way. Buttons up is not compulsory, so you can show off a shoulder or both to make the blouse look more casual. Simply unbutton the upper part of your shirt enough so you feel comfortable with it on your shoulder/s and tie a knot at the bottom.

Last summer’s favourite shorts

Remember your favourite shorts from last summer? Pull them out of the bag and pair them with your just styled shirt. Go for white shorts: they’ll give you a more stylish vibe. It took me a while to start wearing white, so if you’re having second thoughts it’s completely understood. However, know this: white is addictive. Soon after I started buying white white and white items.

Your Elegant Flats

As you’re wearing a business casual shirt, go for elegant flats instead of your beloved converses. I’ve found this gem of a pair in an outlet in Bordeaux and fallen in love immediately with its front bow detail. If you happen to have some elegant flats that you think will go well in this combination, why not wear them instead buying a new pair? I’ve however linked at the end of the article similar items just in case.

Oh, hello shiny earrings! It can be argued that this pair of earrings is suitable for evening wear. I say, just have fun with it and incorporate some elegant (colourful) earrings into this outfit because the flats and shirt really allow for it. It’s summer – fashion rules still apply, but we can be more flexible, can’t we? Statement earrings are the way this summer.

Straw bags

Straw bags have been a hit last summer – glossy magazines shown them in all shapes and sizes & fashion websites and fashion bloggers were vowing for them too. I recently got my first one and indeed they’re so cute to wear. Let’s enjoy summer friendly accessories while we still can. Just be careful with your valuable items inside the bag – usually these bags don’t come with a zip.

As shown in British Vogue June, shorts are your new summer staple. They swear they’ve seen shorts worn under cocktail dresses at Nina Ricci and Chloe. Not denim shorts of course! But what do we care? We’ll do our own summer staple out of denim high waisted shorts, because they are way cooler. Boss girls, let’s see how we can best wear them this summer!

Denim shorts are cool – we know that already, however they can bring a ‘basic’ feel to your outfit. And girl you want to be anything, but not basic (not anything, but you get the idea). I feel a great way of putting together a stylish outfit is to always bring in interesting fabrics and accessories.

Anja Rock Embroidery Top

The upper part is so important to get right. Get a sheer crop top and you ruined it. As the shorts are exposing a good part of your skin, you want to ensure you’re pretty much covered else where. Try this: pair them with a emrbroided top (mine is actually a dress I knotted in the back) or even a ruffle top. You’ll feel amazing in the combo.

Stefanel Hat

You know what I like to say: to make the outfit pop, wear a hat! I adore this piece from Stefanel! The colour on your hat should match or at least go with your outfit colour palette. Otherwise, all the eyes will be on your hat and not your outfit. Imagine this outfit with a red hat! I’m on the next train to Nopeland!

Ray Ban Sunglasses

I just got these babies from the airport the I was on my way to Romania, my beautiful homeland. Needless to say, wear your sunnies with pride! ANY style you pick – except from the new triangle ones that put me off so bad.

Reserved Trainers

This is the first pair of trainers I gave bought in years. They are feminine and have beautiful ribbons. No one can resist a ribbon lace. I know I can’t!
