  • Change How You Wear That Button-Up

If you’re like most women out there, then you have a ton of button-ups in your wardrobe that you barely ever use anymore. You might only wear them to work, but you might think there’s not any more use for them beyond that. However, there are some great ways that you can make your boring button-up a whole lot more exciting.

You can roll up the sleeves, pop the collar and knot the bottom with a high-waisted pair of pants or a skirt. You can add it under a jacket and just have it popping out. You could even throw on a sweater on a chilly day and have the button-up underneath. Another way you can style a button-up is by buttoning it up all the way and add a statement necklace on top.

  • Master the Denim Vest

If you have an old denim jacket laying around that you never wear, then why not transform it into a trendy denim vest? Or if you find one laying around in a thrift shop, go ahead and pick it up to add it to your outfit! Denim vests are great pieces to add to pretty much any outfit. Go for some skinny jeans and a longer light sweater that you can top with the vest. You could even get some custom embroidery done on it to add some cute patches.

  • Try Out a Trench Coat

Trench coats are something that you might not have thought about wearing too much. However, they are great additions during the autumn and winter months that give a big statement to your outfit. You can either wear one over your cocktail dress or wear it belted over a pencil skirt. Or you could wear it with skinny jeans and tall brown boots. If you want a more casual look, you can just wear it over your normal outfit and unbutton it.

  • Style A Graphic Tee to A Tee

We know that you have tons of graphic tees and t-shirts laying around in your room and taking up room in your drawers. How many times do you wonder what you could potentially do with those graphic tees to make them into an outfit? Well, you can add the tee with one of your pencil skirts for a cute outfit. Or you can pair it with a blazer and a pair of skinny pants for a smart casual outfit. You can pretty much do anything with that graphic tee!

  • Have Some Red Jeans Laying Around?

Red jeans are something that you might not know what to do with. You probably have them folded up your drawers and haven’t even worn them once. When you wear red jeans, you want to go with a more neutral color on top and bottom. The red is already a burst of color, so you don’t want to go too far with the other items in the outfit. Pair them with a black or white blouse with some gold accessories to make a great outfit.

  • Boyfriend Jeans Can Still Be Cool

Boyfriend jeans might have gone out of style in recent years, but they’re coming back with a vengeance this season. Learning how to style them properly could be great for you to get some more uses out of them, rather than going to buy new ones. You can go simple with a baggy tee shirt and heels. Or you can top them off with a blazer and classy shoes for a smarter look.

  • White Jeans Are Coming Back from The Dead

If you thought that white jeans were dead, then you had better think again! Denim is coming back in all forms this season and that includes in the color white. White jeans are something that not a lot of people know how to properly style, so you had better learn before you head out in a pair. You can pair it with a white graphic tee and a denim jacket for a classic white look. Or you can keep it casual with a tee and some brown sandals. You could even add some extra colors for your top to make your outfit really pop.

  • Change Up Those Boring Blue Jeans

You should definitely think about how you wear your boring old blue jeans if you want to really upgrade your wardrobe.

Go with two rolls if you’re wearing ankle boots. You can wear them long with pump-ups. If you’re wearing boyfriend jeans, then go with heels. Make sure if you’re wearing tall boots then you only wear the skinniest jeans. You don’t want any scrunching happening when you stuff those jeans in the boots!
