I can barely see the bottom of my closet, and yet I often feel like I have nothing to wear. Either I’ve worn the same striped shirt three times in one week, or I’m just not feeling that dress anymore.
It’s easy to get sick of your wardrobe and want to start over. It doesn’t matter how much (or how little) you’ve spent on your clothes; after awhile, everything starts to feel outdated or unoriginal. But you don’t have to break the bank trying to replace everything. There are simple ways that you can stay on top of the latest fashion trends and jazz up your look without spending a dime.
Take a cue from the ladies on The Bold Type, who always spice up their look with well-planned clothing pieces and minimal accessories. Here’s how you can use accessories, shoes and bags to transform your closet. Chances are you already own most of these items!
1. Dress up a casual tee and jeans with a funky printed jacket.
All you need in life is a pair of jeans, a basic tee, sneaks and you’re GOOD. You don’t have to add a lot to your outfit to transform your look. Switch things up by rocking a patterned jacket that’s comfy AND colorful.
2. You don’t always have to wear huge jewelry pieces to make a statement.
A statement piece can come in the form of a colorful clutch, a cute headband or simple rings. Add something small but eye-catching and boom! Instant game changer.
3. Give a modern take on the LBD.
Fashion lovers know that the little black dress is queen. Instead of the traditional look, rock an all-black outfit that is just as fierce. You can finally put that faux leather skirt you bought on a whim last year to use!
4. A little makeup can go a long way.
Whether you’re a fan of the no-makeup makeup look or prefer your eyeshadow loud and proud, you can elevate your outfit by rocking your favorite makeup products.
5. Pair a printed shirt with bright pants.
Tackle the popular color block trend by wearing a patterned tee or blouse with your brightest pants.
6. Rock a pair of cute shades.
Show off your eye for details with seriously cool sunglasses. Bestie optional.
