9 Clever Style Tips From the World's Most Fashionable Women
When you think of the perfect outfit, it likely has a handful of different components in the mix: well-fitted separates, a dynamic colour palette, elements of proportion, and perhaps most importantly, a hint of personal flair by way of the styling. Whether it's something as subtle as the cuff on a sleeve or a silky scarf knotted around the waist, these minute details tend to add up to make a big difference when it comes to composing a strong look. That's why we set out to find inspiring, clever style tips that we can test-drive. We headed to our happy place—street style—and sifted through images of our favourite fashion editors, influencers, and the like and found nine standout ideas we're giving a go. From an unexpected piece to layer over your basic white tee to a downtown-inspired approach to wearing a blazer, scroll down to find out what outfit tricks we're trying right now and shop our picks to, as they say, get the look.
Skip the traditional leather belt and tie a silk scarf around one belt loop to add an element of fluidity.
Give an ordinary white tee–and-jeans combination a pick-me-up with the quick addition of a corset worn on top.
Though slightly more adventurous (and better reserved for non-office outings), layer a lacey bralette on top of a button-down shirt and wear a slouchy jacket on top.
When your khaki pants are feeling drab, reach for edgy pieces like a choker and band tee to spice it up.
Upgrade your necklace collection with an iteration with natural materials, like black rope and seashells.
Don't shy away from clashing prints. Try accessorising a matching pyjama set with a bandana in your hair. Balance it out with a pair of neutral shoes.
Whether it's a wrap dress or a boiler suit, adding a fitted lightweight layer below takes your look up a notch and makes an outfit more dynamic. Plus, as it starts to get cold it'll help with added heat.
Tuck your blazer into your jeans for a fresh take on the closet staple.
Rethink your ball cap and beanies and test out an adventurous topper with slight safari vibes.
