How To: Add Spice to Your Look

How to take a drab look like this.. 
And turn it into this!
Hey Fashlovers, 

So today I wanted to give a few quick tips on how to take a seemingly drab outfit and make it look brand new!
As you can see above I decided to opt for a double denim look (which is pretty trendy this Spring). I chose completely different denims in order to show you all that it is possible to make an outfit like this actually look nice as well lol.

Tip #1: Work with your sleeves 

Depending on the look you are going for try switching it up by either rolling, cuffing, or scrunching your sleeves. Because I was wearing a denim shirt I decided to roll and cuff which worked out perfectly because it was a pretty hot day. I also rolled the bottom of my boyfriend jeans because I simply love the look!

Tip #2: Power is within the tuck! 

For some reason I really love tucking in my shirt! I honestly probably need an intervention when it comes to it actually lol. Tucking in your shirt makes the look appear more chic, especially if your bottoms are high-waisted. For my look I chose to go for the half tuck in route just to be different. 

Tip #3: Add a Trendy Piece 

Trends are my thing guys! I love waiting to see what will be the hot new trends for the next season. You can typically find them out through fashion shows, magazines, and popular fashion websites. Any who, I felt a bag would work well with my look so I opted for the now trending bucket bag. Adding a trend helps refine the outfit and keep it fresh. 

Tip #4: Glam up your face

This was by far the easiest part of putting the look together! Simply choose your fave lip color and sunnies. Lipstick adds a pop of color to your face and who doesn't love that.

Tip #5: Shoes does the trick!  

One of the best ways to take a drab look up a notch is definitely through the shoes. The quote "shoes are a girls best friend" is applicable when it comes to fashion. When it comes up spicing up your look during the day, try going for a chunky heel if you would rather not wear flats.
