Fickle fashion trends and the growing emphasis on personal style can intimidate the best of us. Here are our go-to fashion tips that will make your style standout
Tip 1: Afraid of goofing up the print-on-print trend. Just play around with different prints in the same color palette for a chic daytime outfit.
Tip 2: Give your white button down a chic upgrade with pastel floral bottoms. A fun look for when you're shopping of going for a coffee refuel with the girls.
Tip 3: A blazer is a girl's best friend. Add a punch to that loose tee and jeans combination with a crisp well-tailored blazer. Summer-fy the look with light fabric blazers, kimonos or wraps.
Tip 5: Layer long necklaces to create an illusion of a longer torso. The longer the necklace, the taller you will look. Add multiple necklaces for a layered look. If you have a bunch of short necklaces, tie ribbon to them to make them longer. The ribbon can add colour and texture to your outfit.
Tip 6: Just stash a colourful scarf in your purse or carry-on to transform simple tees in the time it takes to make a knot scarf. Works perfectly for as a light layer for those chilly air conditioned malls. . Maximise your scarves and wear them as a chic turban.
