I’m one very boring person when it comes to dressing up. My usual wear would be a square cut jeans and a boring long sleeve. I wanted to go along the fashion but my confidence beats me to death. I wanted to try and explore the modest way possible but still in jive with the fashion, but my height and weight forbids me to. Blogging it easy, but action speaks louder than words as they say.
Let’s see if I can try one of the tips below:
Tie on a belted jacket.
While Fergie’s futuristic shades and wedges might be too wild to wear at the office, her belted jacket and trim bag make dark skinny jeans look super polished.
Upgrade your sweater.
Here’s one supermodel style trick everyone can try on for size: On your next errand-running afternoon, instead of wearing a basic cardi, slip on a more sculptural knit top, à la Cindy Crawford’s balloon-sleeve sweater.
Add some bright accessories.
Suddenly feeling underdressed for your last-minute dinner plans? Distract people from realizing you’re wearing your favorite 501s by piling on a few look-at-me-accessories.
Try a girly blouse.
Basketball all-star Lisa Leslie created a date-worthy look by layering a pink ruffled dress over her gray jeans. The dress-as-a-shirt trick works especially well when you’re 6’5”, but for the rest of us who couldn’t graze the net without the help of a springboard, an old-fashioned ruffle-y top would work just as well.
Go black on black.
Bilson always knows best: A long coatlike cardigan and black booties make for a cool city outfit that’ll work year-round.
Just add heels.
Kelly Osbourne and Kim Kardashian clearly got the same memo: All you need to make your black jeans look glam is a pair of major heels and a short ‘n’ sweet black jacket.
Get buttoned up.
Believe it or not, even ripped-up, boxy boyfriend jeans can look classy. Just take it from not-a-hair-out-of-place Olivia Palermo, who dressed hers up with a prim button-down, lace-up booties and a no-nonsense ponytail.
Show off your sassy side.
Put your black going-out pants into storage: Fitted jeans, a sparkly top and killer heels like singer Kat DeLuna’s can be your cool new Friday-night look.
Buy a blazer. Just do it.
We know you’ve heard this from us before, but seriously, the blazer is a good thing. It’s like the white T-shirt of outerwear: You can’t go wrong with it, especially when worn with jeans, just as she-who-never-ages Robin Wright Penn demonstrates.
