We all have experienced spooning vanilla ice cream out of the carton while leaning against the kitchen sink. It tastes fine but put that same ice cream in a pretty dish, drizzle chocolate sauce on top and add a few raspberries and you’ve got a more appealing dessert. That extra touch creates that wow factor that makes it even more enjoyable.
Are you adding the wow factor to your outfits or are they lacking interest? Here are fifteen items (with clickable shopping links) that can make your outfit more appealing. Those around you will appreciate your presentation and you’ll get more enjoyment out of what you’re wearing.
1 – Add a small patterned silk scarf to the handles of your handbag.
(The touch of ‘citron’ colour would be fantastic against a simple black leather handbag)
2 – If you’re wearing a suit, add a fun, interesting patterned sock.
3 – Next time you get new glasses, consider a colorful frame.
4 – Instead of black or brown boots, try magenta, dark green, or burgundy.
5 – Wear a colorful scarf around your neck. The pop of color will bring attention to your face.
6 – Wear a fedora hat.
7 – Add a touch of metallic in a clutch, a ballet flat or a belt.
8 – Updating your leather (or faux leather) jacket? Try one in cobalt or burgundy.
9 – Substitute a printed pant for your jeans….this J. Crew Minnie pant has a great fit, especially for a curvy figure.
10 – Instead of a plain neutral flat boot, buy one that has something fun … like this J. Crew boot! (I can’t resist glitter!) You could also try a bright colour or a patterned fabric
11 – Be daring and wear a bright red shade of lipstick, like this Limited Edition one from NARS, available via Sephora
12 – Break the habit of using only one handbag for every occasion. Routinely rotate your handbags or buy a bag for date night. Also a great way to add a splash of colour.
13 – Layer chain necklaces in different metals or beaded necklaces in crystals or gemstones to get a fuller look.
(This necklace is one of the most versatile pieces of jewellery I’ve ever found….it’s actually 5 + necklaces in one!)
14 – Wear a patterned stocking with your pencil skirt instead of black tights or sheer hose.
15 – Wear a smile. It’s the best accent for any outfit.
