Look to these 5 style tricks for sartorial cues to refine your wardrobe choices and refresh your fashion attitude. Spruce up your looks and look elegant all the time, whether for day or night.
Mix and match pieces
To mix and match is not merely combining a top and a bottom together or different material textures to make up an ensemble. Sometimes this could mean wearing your office blazer on top of a white t-shirt and denim jeans combo, or layering a red slip dress over a black t-shirt. Different occasions call for different styles, and there’s simply so much potential that you could make the most out of these pieces.
Go back to basics
There are days you opt not to fuss over your outfit, and sometimes it takes just a little bit of style to pull-off that weekend vibe you’ve been looking for. Going back to basics means you invest in certain garments that you can turn into year-round staples. These are simple items such as a white blouse, a classic pair of skinny jeans, a pair of comfortable leggings, and even a simple yet stylish top.
Hot for prints
For as long as we can remember, prints have built its name in the fashion world. This styling tip has been the go-to way to add more personality and introduce intricate designs into your wardrobe. When it comes to effortless styling, use up the prints in your closet such as leopard or any animal print, houndstooth, geometric patterns, stripes, and floral designs.
Accessorize in every way
Look beyond jewelry: Accessories come in different shapes, sizes, color, and forms. Explore pieces such as hats, scarves, and eyewear. In just a quick addition or two, you can instantly switch up your style mood, especially if you’re running a tight schedule from day to night.

Dress it up
Dresses and frocks are always a good idea. They’re accessible, uncomplicated to throw on, and most of them even give you enough room while still accentuating your figure. Comfortable, feminine, and chic, a woman can never have too many frocks to have fun with. Use your dresses as a key layering piece, and match them with different shoes such as over-the-knee boots, sneakers, flats, and sandals.
Strike a pose, all day every day
Get confident and fashionable any time, anywhere. Doing everything in style is not limited to special occasions, going to work, or having a fun Friday night out. Push the boundaries and step out of your comfort zone by strutting your looks as you’re out and about.
