1. Add Accessories
Accessories really make a difference to your outfit.
- They take it from plain to interesting.
- They add personality.
- They add excitement.
They don’t need to be expensive. There is so much great costume jewellery available now. Just avoid the stuff that looks really cheap. From wood to glass, from metals to leather there are so many different materials that you can make jewellery from. Check out my handy guide on choosing necklaces for your neckline.
Belts are another accessory – they can be coloured or neutral, wide or narrow, have a feature buckle or a discreet one.
2. Be Bold with Colour
Get out of the neutral lane and play with colour.
You can mix different colours together or go monochromatic using just one colour at a time.
Look at nature for inspiring colour schemes to copy.

3. Wear a Hero
All basics is boring. Make sure you add a feature or hero garment or accessory. It may be amazing shoes, or a pattern that stands out. It could be with a statement necklace or a bold colour. Avoid bland.
4. Play with Prints
Don’t be scared of prints and patterns.
Your print personality may run more to the solids, but why not try a stripe instead?
5. Create Interest with Texture
Just as interior designers and decorators love layering textures in a room, why not layer together different textures in your outfits. There are so many textures, smooth, nubbly, suede, sheer – play with them in your outfits.
