While temperatures begin to drop around this time of year, it can be easy to fall into the routine of rolling out of bed and throwing on a pair of sweatpants without the motivation or effort to look stylish.

It’s hard to want to look presentable every day and do your hair. One way to make it look like you put effort into a boring look is by adding a patterned or colored headband to a simple braid or bun. It will completely erase the image that makes it look like you just woke up and add a fun element to your look.

  1. Cool Jewelry


A simple choice in jewelry can be more powerful than you think. A plain outfit can go from a five to ten with the effortless addition of hoop earrings or a gold necklace. Especially with the layering jewelry trend, it will look like you put a lot of thought into a standard outfit.

  1. Printed Pants

Comfort is a big part of choosing an outfit, hence why we are so susceptible to choosing our favorite leggings or sweats over our jeans. However, a pair of printed pants can make a huge difference to the way you look. This is an easy way to add flare without going too far out of our comfort zone. It has the same feel as sweatpants and is more flattering on the body.

  1. Fun Printed Socks


Printed socks are making a comeback. They can be worn with simple white sneakers, Vans, Converse and more. They are an easy method to add a subtle surprise to an otherwise generic jeans and sneakers combo. This is also a great way to add a personal touch to your outfits.

  1. Belts
