One of the best parts about the summer is that it’s the perfect time to switch up your wardrobe. The warm weather means you can finally trade in your winter layers for options that are a little more daring. You may have even started planning your first summer outfit with cut-offs and sandals. So, here are seven tips on how to update your style in your everyday wardrobe this season.
Find the right style
You must find the right style for your closet if you want to update it, because it can help ensure that you’re spending your money wisely and getting the most out of what you buy.
When looking at clothing, it’s easy to be swayed by trends and buy items that don’t work with what’s already in your closet. You might end up with many similar items that clash with one another. By finding a style or two that work for you, though, and then making sure that everything else in your closet fits with those styles, you’ll be able to mix and match without worrying about whether or not your clothes will look good together. Once you have an idea of what you want, you can see what trends will fit in with your style without worrying about whether you have to keep up with them.
Treat yourself to an amazing new coat
A great coat is one of the most important style items you can ever purchase. You need it to be well made using high-quality materials, and it must fit your lifestyle and complement your body type, color preferences, and budget. If it doesn’t feel like an extension of yourself when you put it on—get rid of it!
This season there are so many options out there for women who want to update their look with an alternative to the traditional wool pea coat or leather bomber jacket. Puffer jackets are trending big time this year, partly because they keep us warm without being too heavy like parkas would be during our humid summers.
Invest in a great pair of statement earrings
Statement earrings are a great way to make a fashion statement, and they’re also one of the easiest ways to update your look instantly. They can be used to add color to an outfit now, or they can help draw attention to your face and express your personality. So, if you’re looking for an accessory that will give you an edge up on the style game this season but you don’t have time for anything too involved (or pricey), then statement earrings are probably just what you need!
Update your bag to add a pop of color to your outfit
If you’re looking for new ways to rep your style, one of the best ways to do this is by updating your bag. A bag that adds a pop of color to your outfit can be the perfect touch for an otherwise bland look, or it can make all the difference in breaking up the monotony of a solid color palette.
Add a bit of color
You’ve probably heard that black is slimming, but did you know that adding a bit of color can actually help you update your style? For example, a pop of color adds life to your wardrobe by giving you a fresh look and helping you to feel more confident—and the color could positively affect how other people see you.
People will often associate certain colors with specific personality traits. For example, if someone wears a lot of red, they may be perceived as passionate or aggressive; if someone wears blue, they might be seen as calm and collected.
According to the colors of psychology, it was found that when wearing a green shirt, participants were rated as more likable than those who were wearing other colors. This finding suggests that those who wear green are perceived as more trustworthy than those who do not.
Wear cashmere clothing
Cashmere is one of the most luxurious fabrics on the market today. It’s soft, warm, and versatile—all traits that make it a must-have for your wardrobe. The fabric is also costly, but if you’re looking to splurge on an item of clothing that will last you years and years, this may be worth your hard-earned cash. Cashmere can be worn year-round, and as long as you take proper care of it, it can quickly become a classic piece in your wardrobe that never goes out of style.
Cinch your waist with the perfect belt!
Whether you’re going for a more casual or dressed-up look, if you want to add some edge and spice, try a leather or suede belt with a buckle (a dressier option) or a solid-color woven one in neutral tones that will match everything—like these Lizard Tail rope belts, for example, which create an easy-to-wear look. For a more fun and playful appearance, go for a statement piece—perhaps an embroidered design or flashy gold hue—and pair it with jeans and flats instead of heels.
If you want to cinch your waist to create an hourglass shape and accentuate any curves on top (think: narrow hips), go for one that sits right above the hip bone. This way, it visually slims down that area while naturally letting everything else flow out from there! When styling your belt with different outfits, remember not to have it too tight since this will make it uncomfortable and less flattering on all body types.
Keeping your summer style up to date is not as hard as you may think. You can choose to use what is already in your closet; or keep up with the latest trends or mix them. With these tips, you don’t have to worry about keep checking for new trends; and you can make use of sales, and change out footwear and accessories whenever you want to. Don’t forget to buy just what you need to keep your wardrobe up to date and in style—and have fun doing it.
