Here at MyBag, it’s no secret that we love keeping on top of the latest trends. However, this stylish obsession means our wardrobes are full to bursting –so much so that we often forget about those underrated (but oh-so-important!) pieces.

Often deemed to be dull, bland, or simply uninspired, we’re on hand to show how some of the most unappreciated clothes in your wardrobe can be transformed with a little TLC… 

The White Tee

A white t-shirt is a versatile thing: providing the base for any outfit, however casual or glamorous, a simple tee is often overlooked in favour of fancier blouses or knits. To upgrade this low-key look, pair your white cotton t-shirt with seriously opulent accessories – play with lavish details such as textures and hardware, and choose sophisticated, muted colours.


The Black Blazer

Blazers are one of the easiest pieces to style – they have the ability to transform any mediocre outfit into something a little sharper and sassier. Give a classic black blazer a European twist with the addition of a printed scarf – tie yours around the neck and finish with a large pussybow to channel your inner Coco Chanel.


The Little Black Dress

Every woman owns a little black dress – that go-to number that is perfect for dinner, cocktails or dancing. However, LBDs can look a little sombre if not dressed up accordingly – a pop of neon colour is the ideal way to ensure all eyes stay on you.


The Grey Sweater

It may be summertime, but the dreary weather means it’s time to throw on your staple grey sweater. To refresh this muted look, think about injecting some texture into the mix – we love pairing soft grey cashmere with edgy croc leather.

The Old Jeans

Those old, rough-around-the-edges denims you’ve held onto for forever? They’re now seriously in fashion – the more distressed, torn and battered, the better. Contrast the laid-back vibe of the jeans with some decadent metallics; golds, silvers and coppers look effortlessly beautiful against a denim canvas.

Lover of statement accessories, scented candles, anything pink and a little bit of sparkle. A Southern girl in Manchester, when I’m not drooling over designer handbags I can be found fashion blogging, or exploring my new Northern home. My signature look? A nude lip and a very flamboyant pair of shoes.
