Adding that extra ‘je ne sais quoi‘ to an everyday outfit is sometimes too much to handle in the morning. I usually find myself starting off with a good pair of pants and top, but never end up actually executing it out the door. AKA., I wear a sweatshirt to work 99% of the time. I’ve recently started playing with accessories more and swapping my boring flats for a pair of pumps. It’s taken a lot of trial + error, but I’ve narrowed down my top 3 tips to taking any outfit from zero to, well.. you know, hero.
Add the accessories: You’ve got a cute blouse on, the perfect pair of jeans, and maybe a cool jacket… But now what? Add in the stuffin’, y’all! I never, ever leave the house without a pair of sunglasses. We’re not all on the cast of RHOBH, but we can pretend. Snag your favorite pair of sunnies, add a watch, or maybe a few rings n’ things. You’ll be surprised how much the dainty things can bring to the table.
Swap your mom’s ballerina flats for a pair of sophisticated pumps: (Especially in a professional setting.) I feel much more feminine in a good pair of heels. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing better than a pair of comfy shoes. But, we have to switch it up from time to time. Adding pumps to your #OOTD will polish it off and leave you looking refined.
Stick with what you know: Adding a touch of sophistication to your look is good! As we grow and evolve, so should our wardrobe. But stay comfortable. If you don’t feel confident in what you’ve got on – it will show. For me, I feel my best in black. Therefore, I would never wear an outfit without at least a black top or black bottoms… It wouldn’t be ‘me’ and I wouldn’t feel like myself. My look could be killer, but if I don’t feel confident, it doesn’t mean a thing.
