Easy Ways to Instantly Look More Fashionable

Looking more fashionable isn’t always about wearing the coolest trends, mastering complicated styling tricks, or wearing the most expensive clothes. (Who has the bank account for that, anyway? Can’t be me.) It can really be as easy as loosely tucking in your shirt, throwing on a pair of sunglasses, or adding more layers to your look.

Go all out with color.

If you want your ensemble to have personality, forget everything you know about what colors “go together.” There are no rules! Combine neons, neutrals, pastels, and more into one outfit to make it purposeful and to stand out.

Wear a matching set.

This is one of the easiest ways to look chic. Any coordinating two-piece like a pantsuit, skirt suit, knit set, or even sweatsuit looks automatically fashionable. Then all you have to do is pick out your shoes and other accessories to go with it.

Pair a blazer with a graphic tee.

A luxe blazer over an edgier graphic T-shirt paired with jeans pulls off that “high-low” look. It’s an effortless ‘fit that’s both casual and dressed up, no matter where you’re heading.

Opt for monochrome.

Pick one hue and go for it! (You definitely don’t have to match your hair lol, but you can if you want.) This option makes getting dressed for the day wayyy faster since it narrows down your choices, and you can match head-to-toe without spending too much time on your outfit.

Wear your jacket on your shoulders.

Don’t think of your jacket as a jacket. Think of it as a cape with sleeves that fall by your arms. Especially going into transitional weather, it’s a simple way to wear a jacket that won’t make you overheat, but will still give you the coverage you want.

Layers, layers, and more layers.

The more layers you have, the less likely any one piece is to really make or break your outfit, so go crazy—e.g., wear a coat, over a dress, over a mesh shirt, with tights, like seen here. Basically, think of yourself as a fashionable onion. A bonus: This tip works well in the winter time when you need to bundle up anyway!

Change up your footwear.

Whatever you would normally choose for footwear, choose the opposite. Trade your high heels for flat booties, your sneakers for high heels, and your sandals for sneakers. The more wrong it feels, the more right it is. Trust me on this one.

Play with proportions.

A bra top with an oversized quilted jacket. An bulky top with cut-off shorts. Looking fashionable is all about varying proportion and leaning into contrast. Not just pairing big and small shapes, but also structured and soft textures, tight and loose silhouettes, and thick and light materials.
