Sleeve Roll-  It gives a little pizazz and visual interest to the top half of your outfit.

Trick 3

Accessorize-  Jewelry: I love a classic diamond stud. They have been in style since the beginning of time. I wear these almost everyday.  Bracelet stacks: I use my watch as the anchor and then I usually wear the same 3-5 bracelets everyday. These are my favorites- David Yurman Birthstone Bracelet, David Yurman Classic Cable, Knox Thomas Roman Numeral Birthday Bracelet, Stella and Dot Spike Bracelet. Bag: Any bag that compliments your outfit.  Sunglasses: Statement pair, aviator, wayfarer, whatever suits your mood or outfit!

Trick 4

Roll Pant Leg Hem– Roll the bottom of your pants an inch, scrunch the roll to make it look funky or give them a double roll. This shows a little ankle and adds je ne sais quoi to your look.

    Love the tips you mentioned! I feel like cuffing the bottoms of skinny jeans completely transforms your look and outfit! I always do this when I’m wearing chunky heels or wedges. Such a great list of easy tricks to create a chic look! Commenting from The Blogger Life from blissfullybrunette.com


  1. […] Check out the back of this sweater too…it is long enough to cover your bum (always a win in my book)! I love that it has slits on the side so I gave it a little frontal tuck. Remember my past post on taking your outfit from drab to fab in this post? […]
