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.
