How To Look Stylish (When You’re Really Not Feeling It)

Ever have one of those days when you’re just not feeling fashionable? Sure you do. If you’ve ever caught a glimpse of your thrown-together outfit in a shop window and thought “did I honestly think tracksuit pants and a chiffon blouse would work?”, you’re not alone: sometimes, your wardrobe just lets you down.

So, for those days when you’re feeling as on-trend as Paris Hilton circa The Simple Life years, what’s the solution? Spoiler alert: it’s all in the accessories…

Colour = A Must

Jeans and tee combo looking a little drab and uninspiring? No problem. With the addition of deliciously-rich pink tones becoming one of the hottest trends for SS17, this is the perfect time to add a pop of colour to your look. We’ve got a serious case of heart-eyes for these styles from Radley and Guess…

Statement Bags

If your outfit is feeling in need of some real TLC, we think a statement bag can transform it into something seriously sassy. Think bold embellishments, in-your-face colours and contemporary designs – just like these pieces from Salar and Loeffler Randall.

Add Some Jewellery

Outfit feeling a bit lacklustre? Jewellery is the answer: a beautiful necklace or stack of rings will instantly give your plain black dress a luxurious boost. Mix and match your metals for a modern look, or opt for some serious bling if you’re feeling daring: our favourites are these pieces from Missoma and Vivienne Westwood.
