Coco Chanel once said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress. Dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” A beautiful outfit can indeed make a real impression whatever you are doing. Many people even believe that the way you dress affects your confidence and posture. As such, many women feel the need to buy a new outfit for every occasion, meeting or night out. But this can get very expensive especially if have an active social life. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can breathe new life into an outfit without having to splash out on a new dress.
1.Choose a bold makeup look
Bold statement looks are in big time and they are relatively straight forward to create. However, the trick to pulling them off is to keep it simple. Pair a simple little black dress with bold eye makeup and keep your hair style chic and sleek. This will throw the emphasis on your eyes and face and help you spruce up an existing outfit without spending more money. There are so many different beauty looks you can recreate, smokey eyes, metallic tones, neon, glitter or multicolored. Experiment with your palette until you find one you like. If you aren’t a fan of ice shadows than simply emphasize your eyebrows by making them HD and channel your inner Marilyn Monroe with some red lipstick. Do not go too over the top as this can be seen as the opposite of attractive.
2.Buy some new jewelry
Adding jewelry to your outfit is a great way to tie your look together and well-placed jewels can give it some serious pizazz. If you are tired of rocking the same old pearls or tired bracelet then why not update your accessory collection with some trendy jewelry? If you shop online you can treat yourself for less by getting Pandora discount jewelry. The quality is the same and you can get your new trinkets delivered directly to your door.
3.Opt for an elaborate hairstyle
Another way you can take your outfit to the next level is by rocking a new hairstyle. You don’t have to chop off your locks if you don’t want to but you could add some highlights or do something completely different. If you normally wear your hair loose then opt for a chic up do. If you usually tie your hair up then why not wear it loose. Or if you want the best of both worlds, half-up half-down always work well. Experiment with different styles and use online tutorials to help you nail the look.
4.Match your clutch/handbag and shoes
Coordination can take a look from nice to hot in a heartbeat but you can use contrasting tones if you do it right. If you are wearing a black color dress then you can add contrasting accessories as long as they coordinate with each other. Choose a clutch and pumps that match to create an impeccable statement look. The emphasis will be on your accessories and it will give your dress a new feel. If you have a classic little black dress. Don’t be afraid to pair it with bright coloured accessories.
