Fashion is so fast moving that it can be easy to fall behind. Unless you’re a shopaholic, keeping up with new trends is difficult, even for the most fashion-conscious among us. Pick up these four essentials that can breathe new life into the clothes you already have and you’ll be on trend in no time.
Stocking up on colored tights at the start of each season is a must. Colorful or patterned tights add an element of fun to any outfit, and can even be teamed with summer shorts for a trendy look during colder months. It’s best to go for relatively versatile shades, like purple and blue, which can be teamed with loads of other colours.
If you can find a high-waisted pair that fits you properly, skinny jeans can be very flattering indeed, even for curvier figures. By complementing your curves, they give off a feminine air that you just don’t get with a pair of regular cut jeans. The trick is to buy a size up from what you think you need. You can find a great range of skinny jeans at Very.co.uk.
Every girl should have a scarf drawer. We’re not talking about heavy knitted winter ones, but light patterned scarves that can add a touch of flair to more casual outfits. Most clothes shops have a range in their accessories section, so pick up a few the next time you hit the high street. A well-chosen scarf can change your look quickly, easily and cheaply.
Wearing a dress takes most of the stress out of planning an outfit, because it’s all done in one go. Keep a few casual dresses on hand for dates, special lunches, and dress down day at work. You can wear them in the winter with thick tights underneath and a stylish jacket on top, and when summer comes you’ll already have part of your wardrobe sorted! Here are some of our favorite oh-so-affordable looks!
