One of the best things about fashion is that it changes and evolves continually. If you have an interest in the latest trends, but you don’t have the money or inclination to overhaul your wardrobe every season, there are some very simple ways to freshen up your look.
If you don’t have the time or money to invest in a brand new wardrobe every time the wind changes, accessorizing is a brilliant way to keep on top of trends and inject new life into your closet. With accessories, you can create a vast range of new looks without investing in new items of clothing. If you’ve got a set of summer staples, for example, you can add accessories to produce an array of outfits. Take a simple black jersey maxi dress. If you’re going to the park or you’re heading to the mall, add a pair of casual sandals, a vintage leather satchel and a couple of mismatched bangles. If you’re going out for lunch or meeting friends, add a wedge shoe, a tote, and oversized shades. For a night out, go for heeled sandals, a clutch, and earrings.
When you’re shopping for accessories and jewelry, think about when and where you plan to wear individual pieces and how much you want to spend. If you’re searching for a ring you want to wear forever, take a look at sites like 77 Diamonds, and choose a ring that you know you’ll love for many years to come. If you’re looking for some quirky earrings to go with a festival outfit, check out thrift stores, high street shops, and vintage stalls. If you have a collection of accessories, you can mix and match them to cater for every occasion.

Look for inspiration
If you’re keen to liven things up a bit, and you feel like you’ve been wearing the same clothes or sporting the same look for a while, look around for inspiration. Check out what your favorite celebrities are wearing, flick through fashion magazines, and take a trip to the shops or do some browsing online and see what’s out there. Whether you’re shopping for a bag, or you’ve got a wedding, concert or party to attend, and you need an outfit, it’s always good to be open to suggestions, and to see how others put looks together. You may find that you like elements of one ensemble and aspects of another, and you can combine the looks to celebrate your own style.
Don’t be afraid to try new things
Are you one of those people who looks at rails in stores and is too afraid to try items that aren’t your normal style, or do you often assume that things won’t suit you before you even give them a second glance? If so, it’s time to be braver and bolder. If your wardrobe needs a new lease of life, have more fun with fashion. If you see things you like hanging on a rack, take them off and make for the fitting room. What’s the worst that could happen? Nobody needs to see you, and you can just hand the item back to the assistant if it doesn’t suit you.
