Fashion6 Simple Styling Hacks Every It Girl Knows

Reinventing your look can be as simple as a small wardrobe tweak and the fashion crowd knows this better than anyone (when you’re getting photographed on the daily, creative styling is your secret weapon). From mixing unexpected pieces to adding just one item where you’d never thought to before, there are plenty of ways to make your whole vibe feel fresh and new again, without buying a whole new wardrobe (dare to dream, right?). Scroll on for 6 styling hacks every style star uses, and get ready to experience your own fashion renaissance.

1. Socks are a Fashion Item

Try adding in an upgraded pair of socks to your footwear routine and watch your style soar. With everything from embellishment to elevated fabrics on tap for this season, your heels and sneakers deserve some fun, stylish new playmates.

2. Go Monochromatic

One of the quickest ways to make an outfit look expert-level is to rock one color from head to toe. You can do the tonal thing with multiple shades or match the same hue all over: either way, your look will pack a major punch.

3. Mix Daytime and Evening

Get more use out of your after-dark pieces by taking them out to play during the day. Try layering cocktail dresses over long sleeve staples or mixing your graphic tee with fabrics like lace, satin and velvet for a mashup that hits all the right notes.

4. Belt It

Your coats, dresses, and blazers all get new life when you cinch them at the waist. So go ahead, show off that shape!

5. Big Earrings Make Everything Better

Maximum impact with minimal effort? We totally dig it. Not only do face framers flatter your pretty mug, they make any basic ensemble look instantly special.

6. Leopard Goes with Everything

When in doubt, add some animal print. Nothing says “I’m a fearless fashion chick” like some wild spots. Treat the print like a neutral by pairing with florals, plaid, denim, and beyond.

FashionHow to Wear It: Denim on Denim

The denim trend has evolved over the years – remember Justin and Britney’s iconic 2001 denim clad red carpet look?  Flash forward 16 years to today: the denim on denim trend is back and it-girls everywhere are fearlessly rocking the look, and they are slaying. Thinking about going full denim on denim yourself? Well, we have exactly what you need to rock the edgy trend, without evoking any 2001 Britney vibes.

Add Some Detail

Why rock one trend when you can do two! For this double-denim look we are pairing the Hit Single Light Wash Pearl Denim Jacket with Pistola So it Seams Light Wash Two-Tone Distressed Jeans. The trendy pearl details on the jacket add a fun twist to the double denim trend. Add in a timeless basic like the She Be Bad Ivory Embroidered Tee to finish the look.

Light and Dark

If you are looking to rock the trend with a little reserve, pairing a light wash with a dark wash will help break-up the look, making it easier to wear. We are currently loving the darker tones of the Levi’s Original Trucker Medium Wash Denim Shearling Jacket paired with the light wash Levi’s 501 Skinny Light Wash Distressed Jeans. Add a neutral color, casual top like the Junk Food Janis Joplin Down On Me Washed Black Tee and you have got retro vibe look that can’t go wrong.

Dark Denim Needs Love Too

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the all black outfit loving ladies out there! Pairing dark denim with dark denim will give you all the rocker chick vibes you have been looking for. Our faves for the look? The Billabong Beamin’ and Dreamin’ Washed Black Cropped Denim Jacket paired with the Rollas Westcoast Staple Washed Black Distressed Skinny Jeans. Keep the look nice and moody by finishing it with the Rolling Stones Tour 81-82 White Tee.

FashionHow to Wear It: Pink and Red

Once known only as the Valentine’s Day palette of choice, red and pink are officially the standout color combo of  2017. The sidewalks of  New York Fashion Week were teeming with street style stars decked out in their best interpretations of the trend and trading in their standard black fare for the pop of color couple. If you have any doubts about the staying power of this phenomenon, look no further than the Spring 2018 runways, where several designers cosigned the color pairing.  No longer considered clashy, the ultragirly duo has permeated the fashionsphere — and we are 100% here for it.

Want to give this perfect pair of hues a try? Same. That’s why we put together our own OOTD versions to simplify the process for you. Scroll on for five ways to master pink and red like a pro.
