Its often that people think I’m spending a fortune on my outfits when typically its all very reasonably (or inexpensively) priced. I tend to buy things at a lower price point (except my designer sunglasses), and then style them in a way that happens to make them look more expensive. Styling is key and will instinctively elevate your look.
I grabbed this t-shirt dress last summer for $5 from Forever21 and wore it with flip flops when I was in St. Lucia. Who would have thought that I could then wear it as a gown to an event like a wedding?! Great accessories and being well groomed can work wonders. Here are a few tricks to boost your one color mundane dress and bring it to its full potential.
1.) Costume Jewelry
Add a chic statement necklace, a jeweled bangle, or expensive looking earrings and your entire outfit will suddenly be enhanced. You’ll have the oomph factor that you were looking for.
This is equally as important! Stay fresh. If you have the right hair and makeup and a fresh mani/pedi, your simple dress can look ultra chic. Get rid of your peeled polish and do something to that dull face. Create drama with your hair or makeup.
3.) Add a Great Bag
Find a structured bejeweled clutch and let it be the focal point. This will give your plain dress a boost for sure.
4). Centerpiece Shoes
If your dress is basic, your shoes have permission to be outrageous. Your shoes will take your simple outfit and transform it into a stunning one.
