8 Ways to Take Your Outfit to the Next Level this Spring

Spring is here, and the end of the semester is coming to a close end. It is the perfect time for new beginnings, and by new beginnings, we mean a whole new look. It's easier than you think. Here is a complete list of essential accessories every girl needs in her closet to spice up an outift!

1. Statement belts

This is my favourite way to turn a basic outfit into an exciting look. Just by adding a belt to any outfit instantly makes it look like you put way more effort into it then you actually did! Pair your belt with some blue or black jeans and a cute tee and you're ready to go. 

2. Jewellery

Statement jewellery is the way to go if you want to add a little extra something to an outfit. Necklaces, bracelets, rings or earrings--any or all of these items added to an outfit make it look so much more put together!

Tip: Try layering your jewellery (i.e. necklaces), and wearing statement pieces (i.e. unique earrings) for a fashionable look. But make sure you put gold with gold, silver with silver, etc. 

3. Sunglasses

Didn’t sleep last night because you watched too much Netflix? Don’t worry, just throw on some trendy sunglasses and no one will ever know. Sunglasses can save your life (especially if you're hungover). 

4. Hats

With the winter gone, now is the perfect time to add some hats into your wardrobe as the warmer weather approaches. Try a baseball hat with some leggings and a cute sweater, or a beanie with a puffy vest. 

5. Purses

Grab a purse to make your outfit instantly go from boring to put-together. Not only are purses practical for storing essentials on-the-go, but they are also great statement pieces that will transform an outfit. A bright purse can take any plain outfit to the next level. 

6. Jackets

As spring is in the air it is time to throw in those big winter coats in exchange for something light and fresh. If you don’t know how to make an outfit better, try putting on a unique jacket. Next time you’re shopping try looking for a fun statement coat you can use to throw on over basic outfits. Try investing in a good leather jacket as well; it gives an extra edge. 

7. Socks

Something I have noticed on Instagram influencers lately is socks! One of my favourite looks lately has been chunky white sneakers paired with crew-length white socks, and an oversized shirt/hoodie.

8. Hair Pieces

Lastly, for ways to take your outfit to the next level--try adding a cool hair piece! Try using a chic hair scrunchie instead of your typical hair elastic. Hair pieces can be that unique touch that you were missing in an outfit.
