How To: Add Interest to an Outfit

 Outfit deets:

* Gap dress (thrifted) which I’ve had for a couple years and you’ve seen belted with a turtle neck and tights and also with my favourite gladiator sandals.

* Gap denim jacket (thrifted recently) that I’m absolutely in love with.  It seems to trump all other denim jackets I own (which are numerous).

* Joe Fresh suede boots that I’ve had since Joe Fresh first opened (four years ago?) and I wore with a sweater/skirt/tights combo in autumn.

* Accessories:  Le Chateau pashmina & necklace, Michael Kors watch & random bangles.

Adding interest to an outfit can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.  Accessories are key and the possibilities are endless.

Above, I’ve shown the perfect (and easiest) way to add interest to an outfit with simple accessories: a necklace, jacket and pashmina.

I started with a basic a-line/tent style dress and casual flat boots (it was a sunny, semi-chilly spring day).  I added a wooden beaded necklace.  Then layered a denim jacket.  And lastly added a pashmina (which came in handy while sitting on patio later on when the wind picked up).

I personally tend to keep a jacket and pashmina with me at all times (throughout the spring/summer/fall) as the temperatures can be unpredictable and/or your day may run into the evening when the mercury tends to drop.  It is a simple and basic way to chic-ify your outfit and stay cozy too.
