There comes the time when we all get bored of wearing the same clothes over and over again, but spending a fortune on replacing all your closet isn't a option either, as you have to save for the downpayment of your new apartment/house, keep paying the car, school fees or maybe planning a baby.... plus the fixed costs of our day-to-day life are not going anywhere and bills keep coming under the door.

As well, there is nothing more refreshing than looking yourself in the mirror and feel proud and happy of your looks, making you feel ready to kick anyone who dares to stand in the way between you and your success... so here comes the most common question between us gals: how do I freshen up my closet without spending a king's ransom? Something in the line of a style makeover but using the same closet, perhaps?

Regardless your personal style or lifestyle per-se, there is an extensive variety of items and at different prices to achieve an unbeatable image boost... remember it all comes down to making you feel your finest, so you attract ONLY THE BEST!

Well, there is nothing best than pinching some bucks from your piggy bank to revitalize your outfits without feeling a remorseful hangover afterwards, so scroll down to check out these easy ways to breathe new life into your closet... and please don't forget to share your own ideas with me. 

Best of luck, Miranda.

 


1. Evaluate your Hair and Makeup.


There is nothing more witless in this world than thinking in an perfect outfit, even with designer clothes, without taking care of your grooming basics. A proper haircut and colour can bring your all appearance from completely undone to elegant and polished, even if pairing just with jeans and a t-shirt...

Why? Because of the simple reason that a well-groomed woman shines and screams CLEAN and polish and that makes her "Wear the clothes, not the clothes to wear her". Believe me, I have seen women with VERY nice clothes and terrible hair and makeup, throwing all the effort down the drain. It makes such a big difference that I actually never judge my outfit before finishing my hair and makeup (and I do mine very minimal), because it brings a world of difference and meaning to my clothes and attitude that particular day.

HAIR: In some cases, a brush and hairspray for a fancy ponytail is all it's needed if you don't have time for a proper blow dry. Ask you hairdresser for different options on how to wear your hair with that particular hairstyle.

MAKEUP: As for the makeup, there is no need to be an expert or be a contouring-master... all you might need is minimal foundation, eyeliner, mascara, shape your brows and lipgloss, taking 10 minutes of your time. Have a look at these Blog Entries and get hold of some useful tips on FOUNDATION, MASCARA, LASHCURLERS, LIPSTICK.

These are the quickest, easiest and probably the most unexpensible way to freshen up your looks...But you can always take it to the next level by adding some fabulous hair-pieces to dress it up. Just make sure they are proper to wear @work... just saying!


2. Add some shine and bling to your outfits.

You will never go wrong when adding the adequate amount of sparkle on top of your clothes, it will add an instant glam to your workwear as well as your t-shirts.

-OR-

Why not being at bit risquè by adding a sparkly piece of clothing to your wardrobe that will work wonders with almost anything? Neutrals look beautiful when combined with a shinny piece, so you can mix & match with all your basics and give your outfits an amazing twist!!


3. Throw in some sexy lace.

You might be thinking that lace is either too girly or worn just by grown up women or too 80's, but there are actually some very nice pieces in the market that don't seem one or the other. It's been a trend for quite a while now and many of the most famous fashionistas add a layer of delicate lace making it even look 'edgy'... It doesn't have to be lace head-to-toe or in pastel colours, it comes in many different shapes and amounts: think about a nice top with lace inserts worn with a denim or leather jacket, or a lace finish cardigan or even some hosiery... it will add texture and refinement in a breeze!


4. Add prints and mix them up.

There is nothing nicer and more practical to disguise 'flaws' than prints. They will bring the attention to that part of your body which you want to showcase, but as well can bring attention to those ones you want to hide, so be careful there. But the best part of prints is that there are thousands options to choose from and if picked correctly, they are very flattering, reveal your personality and THAT will make outfits look so wonderful, because it's YOU! Go for animal, nature, stripes, florals, polka dots, tartan, checks... whatever brings out the best of you.

If you feel a bit lost on how to mix and match different prints, have a look at this MIXING PRINTS blog article where you will find the most simple and easy tips to start mastering the 'printology' area.


5. Get a great jacket (or two or more if you can afford it).

Jackets might the most convenient piece of your closet. When chosen properly, then can take you from casual to formal in an instant, but as well, they look amazing when paired with ripped jeans or shorts... and obviously will keep you warm when the cool breeze hits during a night out.

All is really needed for a jacket to look amazing on you, is a proper fit. This article about finding your perfect jacket explains what it needs for it to fit without fault. Just remember a jacket is a piece to make you look elegant, polished and attractive, not a box or a sac. Read the article and keep those good tips on mind.

From an ocean of options out there, I give here some suggestions for jackets that work perfect for both work or the weekend, different colours and styles. Just find what it best suits your lifestyle and taste, shape and personality.


6. A touch of leather.

It will add warmth, sophistication, smoothness, refinement, grandeur and poise to your outfits. It can be presented in many different forms, call it leggins, jacket, gilet, skirts, shorts, wrap bracelet, shoes, bags.... any presentation you like. My favourites are the bigger forms like pants and biker jackets, but I think it is always a winner to add some leather to your ensembles, specially on those days when we have "nothing to wear"... a piece of leather in any colour will fix it all for you any time of the year and regardless the trends.

More than a luxury, leather is a basic piece of your closet and is as easy to wear as your denim, with the difference that it dress you up when worn with both your Louboutins or your Converse; Yes, they are a bit pricey, but again, they will last you until you toss them.... and there are equally beautiful, price and eco friendly vegan versions available in case you prefer that option.


7. Final touches.

SUNNIES: They won't just protect you from the sun and its UV rays, but they will add a touch of glamour to your entire look and also will bring attention to your face. They are one of those accessories that go out of fashion easily, so if you are on a strict budget, stick to some less pricey ones but still if there is room for a little splurge, get the best ones you can afford, you and everyone else will notice the difference.

HOSIERY: Same basic pencil skirt over and over again with different, good quality and beautiful stockings is NOT the same. Try adding to your closet some patterned or colourful pair of tights, obviously according to your work area and liking. But to play safe and still look different and amazing, go for classic and refined looks.

PERFUME: Last but not least, according to me this is the most important detail of any outfit and I never go out without wearing perfume. People will notice your scent everywhere you go and after you're gone; your perfume will remind them of you, as it becomes your trademark, your scent. So you better be careful choosing the one which truly offers a meaning of yourself and have as many as you like, but make one or two your symbol and the ones you wear the most.

I always tend to go for florals in spring, fruity for summer and sweeter for winter.... but my all time favourites are ROMANCE (by Ralph Lauren), Miss Dior Cherie (Dior, obvious) and CHANCE Eau Tendre (by Chanel). I always have them in my cupboard, and the rest can come and go.

TIPS:

* Don't buy a perfume that smells delicious on your friend, most probably it won't smell the same on you as your body chemistry is different and you might end up not liking it and wasting your cash.

* Put some drops or spray a few times the perfume you like best into your UNSCENTED body lotion. It will keep you and your clothes fragant around-the-clock.

* Protect your jewellery (fine and fashion) from perfume as its alcohol content and other chemicals with damage your bling forever (it can affect some fine fabrics like cashmere). Apply your perfume after you shower directly into your body and let it dry while you do your hair or makeup and then throw the rest on top.

* When trying a new scent, don't go over board smelling all brands and names in the counter. You don't have a doggy nose which captures all the differences. Try three at the most and put the one you like best on the inside of your wrist. Go walk for at least 20 minutes and test the scent again, this is how it really will smell with the everyday action.

Some other of my favourites fragances are:
