As a stylist, I have come to understand that it really is all in the details. There are a few tips and tricks which can instantly elevate your everyday outfits. A basic tee and jeans, for example, can easily transform into an effortlessly chic look with a few simple styling touches that have major impact! If you’ve resolved to improve your personal style in the new year, keep scrolling for 4 easy ways to look stylish in 2021.
Tip 1- Swap for Sneakers
I will make any excuse to throw on my favorite sneakers! Sneakers add that Jennifer Aniston cool-girl vibe to your look. I love seeing sneakers styled with an unexpected outfit. For example, a midi dress and moto jacket with sneakers is the ultimate juxtaposition! I also love a slim ankle pant and a cozy sweater look for a chic daytime look. Even if it feels odd to do at first, I promise you are going to look fabulous and feel great!
Tip 2 – Add a Scarf
If you’re looking for an unexpected way to add a touch of sophistication and graphic interest to your outfit this year, look no further than a silk scarf. Silk scarves are versatile and can be styled around your ponytail, on your purse, or even wrapped around your wrist as a bracelet; it’s so simple and effective! Not only will you make a fashion-forward statement, your girlfriends are sure to be impressed!
Tip 3 – Tuck & Knot
When I create style notes for my clients, the most common styling tip I use is to front tuck your relaxed shirts and sweaters into your jeans. I cannot tell you the world of difference this makes! It creates a flattering and slimming shape. If the front tuck isn’t your style, try adding a knot! Whether it’s your favorite chambray shirt or a crew neck tee, a small knot around the hem will create the appearance of a smaller waist. It also adds visual interest to any outfit and looks really stylish!
Tip 4 – Throw on a Belt
Belts are always a key player in the styling game! It can add a cool pop of color, exciting texture, or can even just to flatter your figure. Whenever you are front tucking your shirts (wink face), try throwing on a fun statement belt to add a new element of interest to your look! Belts are also fantastic to wrap around or lay under blazers for an updated office look. One of my favorite outfits is a chic statement belt with a midi skirt, tee shirt, and structured blazer. Fabulous!
