When you are putting together a fashion look, there are a few tips and tricks you can use to take it to the next level. One of the smartest things you can do with your dress sense is to create a look that appears to be high-fashion – when in fact, it is made from clothes and accessories from a whole range of different backgrounds. This kind of look is all in the details. After all, any piece of designer or expensive clothing is made so meticulously, that every detail is accounted for. If you want this kind of look on a slightly more workable budget, you will need to pay specific attention to the details of your outfits. Read on to find out how you can do this.
Jewellery has been, for many years, one of the easiest ways to add a bit of sparkle to your look, both literally and figuratively. You don’t need to spend $600 on an exclusive diamond necklace either – fashion jewellery comes in all kinds of styles so you can invest in some pieces to brighten up even the dullest of outfits. Even something as simple as a dainty pair of earrings or an eye-catching necklace can help to transform an outfit, and it shows other people that you have put some thought into what you are wearing that day.
Buttons and seams
It might seem peculiar to even pay attention to the buttons and seams on any of your clothing. But, as mentioned above, the details on expensive clothing tends to be meticulous. If you want to give your outfit a high fashion edge, you will need to pay attention to even the smallest of things. For example, you may have a great pair of jeans that you adore, but the buttons have rusted, and the seams have already begun to fray. Simply visit your local craft store and buy some replacement buttons – rose gold is a good option if you want to be on trend – and sew them on at home. You could also add colored stitching to tie in with the new embroidery trend that has been taking the runways by storm.
If you are a fan of the chic monochrome look, chances are the thought of injecting any color into your closet is one that fills you with abject fear. But adding color or a print doesn’t need to be in such as way that the entire outfit is taken over by the bold design. For example, if you are wearing a classic minimalist outfit – black tapered trousers, a white blouse and a black fedora – why not spice the whole thing up with some leopard print heeled boots? As the print is only on your feet, you won’t assault anyone’s eyes with an ‘in your face’ statement piece, but it still adds detail and therefore interest to your outfit as a whole. Adding those designer details is all about subtlety – and while not everyone may notice it at first, it will make your whole outfit look much more put together.
