Creating outfits every day may be hard sometimes, especially now, after we have lived in our comfies during the lockdown. But today I would like to share with you some of my fashion discoveries which are little tricks that can elevate any look and eliminate boredom.

I : One Piece, Different Ways

It is worth investing in pieces that are versatile and that we can literally wear in different ways. The skirt from the picture was bought years ago in a second-hand shop. But recently I have discovered another way to wear it.

You can wear it as a top! Clever isn’t it? It will be perfect for an evening out or paired with jeans for an everyday look. It is quite adaptable at the top and fit well so there is no risk that it will slide down as you go. That way instead of one piece of clothing you get 2 which is a very good start to creating a capsule wardrobe that basically consists from a limited amount of pieces that can be worn in many different combinations.

II : White T-Shirt Doesn’t Have To Be Boring

I think we all have already seen one of the most popular t-shirts of the season created by The Frankie Shop, the Muscle T-Shirt. If not, then basically this particular top has pads sewn into the shoulder line which gives the silhouette a „V” letter shape. It’s a really interesting design but for me not necessarily worth $75, because that’s the price of the Muscle T-Shirt on the official website of The Frankie Shop.

However, you can get that kind of look by using one simple trick that I have discovered on @camilacoelho’s Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/camilacoelho/). By the way, it is really worth it to give her a follow as she speaks up about lots of important issues but also has a great sense of humour. Below, I wanted to show you how you can easily achieve the Muscle T-Shirt effect with a plain, white t-shirt that everyone has in their wardrobe.

Step 1: Pull out a strap from your bra or a vest

III: Hair Accessories

Hairpins, ribbons or silk scrunchies will make a simple hairstyle more elegant and will add something that catches the eye. I would usually go for a scrunchy but this time I have picked a ribbon and worked it into my braid. Getting my hair done has taken me around 5 minutes but it has made my hair look extraordinary. This kind of hairstyle won’t make you feel uncomfortable and you can use the ribbon in the future as a belt or a bag accessory.
