Adding a few new pieces to your current wardrobe is the perfect way to get you ready for summer. Today, I’ll be sharing my tips and tricks on how you can update your wardrobe for summer, without blowing your budget. You can easily up-date your wardrobe for the warmer temperatures without spending a lot of money by following these few simple rules.
First up, grab that “it” colour of the season and start incorporating it into your looks. This is a sure way to refresh your style, without having to invest in new pieces. We all have a basic white tee that’s been sitting in the back of our closet all winter, just waiting to make an appearance, and summer nights are the perfect time to lighten up your look with white. Pair it with a slightly trendier colour, like millennium pink, and you have an outfit straight off the runway.
We all have denim jeans in our collection, and although skinny jeans have been popular for years, this season it’s getting a facelift. Instead of running out and purchasing new distressed jeans, diy them at home. Take a pair of scissors and get crafty. Try shortening the length to right above your ankle and even fray the edges to make them more interesting. Distress the knee area and the pockets to give it a high-end feel from an old pair of jeans that were just sitting in your closet.
Another tip is to take pieces you currently own and wear them in a different way. Think outside the box and mix and match pieces that you wouldn’t normally pair together. This is a sure way to give a fresh new look to items you already have in your wardrobe. Although you may want to pair your dainty, feminine skirts with a button-down blouse, blazer and heels, try pairing it with a basic tee, denim jacket and sneakers for a more laid-back and street-style effect. This may be an unconventional way of styling these pieces, but it’s a sure way to grab attention and add visual interest to your look.
Athleticwear is hitting the streets hard this season, from Adidas’ tees worn with blazers, to hoodies paired with your fave skirt, to joggers and sweatpants styled with killer heels, athleticwear is everywhere. It’s time to take your workout shoes out of the gym and transition them into everyday life. If you’re been following street-styles for awhile, you know that one of the most enduring favourites is the white sneaker. Let’s face it, it’s more comfortable than heels and is complementary to any look. It still provides that sporty vibe but is simple and chic.
