Hello again beautiful! Todays’s post is a fashion related one where you won’t need to buy a whole new outfit. It’s all about the accessories. Most of us like to look good, but we also don’t like to wear our fanciest outfits all of the time, Sometimes, a basic black dress or jeans and t-shirt combo is the most practical and, let’s face it, easiest outfit to wear. If you are a fan of the basic outfit, but you want to make it stand out a bit more, there are so many ways you can wear accessories to make your boring outfit look the best.

Accessories to Make that Boring Outfit Look the Best

Bold shoes for that LBD

If your little black dress looks great but doesn’t exactly stand out, a really good way to dress it up and make sure all eyes are on you is by pairing it with a pop of colour in the shoe department. Shocking pink, electric blue or sunflower yellow heels will all really pack a punch and make your LBD sing.

Diamonds and pearls will perk up your jeans

Wearing jeans and a t-shirt is a simple, comfortable way to dress on those days when you don’t need to be super smart, but they don’t exactly make for the most exciting of outfits. Luckily, you can really jazz the up by using diamonds and pearls to add a sparkly feminine touch. Whether you wear a pearl hair slide, invest in a pretty diamond ring – engagement rings for women are often a good choice even if you aren’t getting married because they tend to be bigger and sparklier – or you go for a chunky bangle, anything that feminises your outfit in an unexpected way will really work to banish the boredom.

Sunglasses will elevate any outfit

Of course, if you are looking for a fashion accessory that will make any outfit less boring, then a pair of statement sunglasses are exactly what you need, Bold, dramatic and effortlessly sophisticated, cat eye sunglasses are just what your blandest outfit needs. However, if you’re looking for something chic, the rounded square shape, made popular by Celine is one to try.

A silk scarf for shorts and dresses

Shorts and vests or t-shirts are a staple of the summer season, but if they don’t have a pattern or any interesting detail, they can be bland, the same goes for plainly coloured summer dresses. One thing you can do that will immediately add a point of interest, is to add a silk scarf to such an outfit.

For dresses, wearing the scarf in a knot around your neck will make it seem much more elegant and sophisticated. Shorts and t-shirts, wearing a scarf around your head like a bandana will give your look more of a retro 50s vibe even if your clothing is ultra-modern. Think Brigitte Bardot.

A statement handbag for any outfit

Of course, a statement handbag is just the thing to elevate any outfit, no matter how boring, to the next level. Buy the best bag you can afford, in a classic colour and look after it well and you will always look great no matter. Regardless of whether you’re dressed up, down or somewhere in between. Any of these accessories will make even the blandest outfit look a million times better. I’m sure if you go into your closet you’ll find accessories that can elevate the jeans and jumper look.
