We’re always after insider tips and tricks on how to make our outfits look more polished, chic and, let’s face it, expensive.
These nine simple styling hacks from WhoWhatWear.com show you how to do just that. From figuring out which colour will instantly lift an outfit to the accessory you should be adding to your jacket this season, read on to find out how to upscale your look in an instant.
1. Belt Your Jacket
Give your jacket an instant lift with a simple cinch around the waist.
2. Do Dramatic Proportions
Add drama to a short skirt or mini dress by layering it over a high-impact trench or sleeveless coat.
3. Wear All White
An all-white outfit always feels chic and fresh. Try it out with your favourite white button-downs, blazers, trousers, and jeans, all mixed and matched together.
4. Go for a High-Low Mix
Sport a pair of trainers with a polished dress or skirt for the ultimate unstudied vibe.
5. Opt for a Long Hemline
Don’t get us wrong – we adore a good mini – but an elegant, long hemline can read more polished and expensive.
6. Mix in Luxe Trousers
If you’re into that whole Olsen-inspired thing, experiment with a pair of knit trousers or voluminous culottes to up your style game.
7. Wear Only One Earring
True, this trend isn’t new, but it sure does gives your accessory game a major It-girl vibe. Also, it doesn’t cost a penny.
8. Rethink Your Shirt
Snag an extra-long button-down and leave the bottom portion unbuttoned for endless layering possibilities. We love how it looks over a full skirt.
Whether it’s an oversized tote or a mini bag, be sure your spring purse has plenty of structure.
