8 Simple Style Tricks That Can Instantly Upgrade Your Look


Do you feel like your current wardrobe simply isn’t working for you anymore? Fret not! It’s completely normal to grow out of certain dressing styles or feel the need to spice things up. Fortunately, there are easy ways to style the clothes you currently own to come up with fresh new looks. Indeed, there’s no need to go out and buy a new set of clothes to try out a new style. Here are a few ways to go about it:

Swap Out Your Jeans for Jeggings
While jeans will always be a staple wardrobe piece, they can get boring if you wear them all the time. They don’t always give the most flattering silhouette, and can sometimes feel uncomfortable as well. If you still want to make them work, though, go to a boutique and search for denim leggings instead. They provide the same coverage and versatility of jeans with added comfort and flexibility. Plus, they’re a great way to show off your legs.
Build Your Outfit Around a Statement Piece
Do you want to try incorporating printed clothes or bolder colors in your wardrobe but feel intimidated about pulling it off? A good rule of thumb is to pick only one statement item per outfit so that you can plan the rest of your look around it. By keeping the rest of your clothing subtle, you can still look put-together even if you’re new to wearing prints or color.
Be Bolder with the Shapes Your Outfits Create
Whether you’re used to wearing skin-tight clothing or billowy apparel, it’s never too late to change things up. So don’t be afraid to combine clothing items that offer different silhouettes into a single outfit. You might just end up creating new ensembles that you’ll fall in love with. 
For example, you can layer a shift dress over a top with puffy sleeves for a more interesting-looking outfit. You can also wear a tight long-sleeved top with a fluffy tulle skirt to give yourself a more fun but stylish look.
Cinch Your Waist More
While there are ways to wear loose clothing in a fun and laid-back manner, there are times when you may feel and look sloppy in them. Give these looks a chic upgrade by tying them at the bottom or wearing a belt to show off your waist. You can do this for oversized shirts, button-down tops, boxy dresses, ponchos, and much more, too.
Have Fun Mixing Varying Prints Together
If you want to go for a bolder way of dressing, try putting together an outfit that purposely pairs items with clashing prints. While many discourage this practice, it can result in creative-looking outfits when done well. While it’s true that printed clothes are mostly designed to be the centerpiece of an ensemble, incorporating patterned clothing throughout your entire outfit can result in striking looks, too.
Fold Your Jeans
Give your outfits a sophisticated upgrade by folding the bottoms of your jeans. Doing so can easily turn a casual or laid-back ensemble into something that looks more polished. The cuffed jeans look is also an effective way to show off your footwear, too. 
The best part is that this styling trick works with different types of jeans. For instance, folding up your skinny jeans can make you look taller. Meanwhile, putting cuffs on baggier jeans can make them look more tailored. It’s the simplest way to make any outfit look more put-together.
Style Your Hair Differently
It might seem like a small detail, but your hairstyle can really make a difference, giving even the simplest of outfits an entirely new vibe. For example, if you tie your hair back in a sleek ponytail, you look much cleaner and more confident. On the other hand, curling your hair can make your outfit look more glamorous, and wearing barrettes in your hair gives you a fresh and bubbly look. 
So whenever you’re out of ideas when it comes to your clothing combinations, try experimenting with your hairstyle every once in a while. If you’re not sure what to do with your hair, or if you’d rather not make any major changes to it, you can try on different wigs or hats instead.
Show Off Your Socks
Gone are the days when hiding your socks was the trend. And with all the brightly-colored and printed socks out in the market, why would you? Go ahead and let your statement socks peek above your footwear. You can even scrunch them slightly for an effortlessly stylish look. This can not only make sporty looks more dressy, but it can also give cozy and feminine ensembles a more casual look.

Changing up your style can seem challenging, especially if you’ve gotten used to wearing your clothes in a certain way. We hope that by giving these tips a try, you can learn how to make more creative ensembles fearlessly and confidently.
