TIP #1: SWAP YOUR SNEAKERS FOR A PAIR OF HEELS

No. 1 on my list of style tips to elevate your outfit is to swap your sneakers for a pair of heels. Whether you choose a stiletto, kitten, or somewhere in between, ANY heel is better than flats or sneakers. The added height will make you instantly look taller, slimmer, and more put together overall. I’m linking one of the best-selling pairs of heels on the blog from Sam Edelman. They come in 5 gorgeous neutral colors and are super wearable thanks to the 2.5-inch heel height. They’re also a slingback design, which is one of the hottest shoe trends for 2024!

WRAP DENIM JACKET:

This cargo denim jacket from Good American has been living in my head rent-free, and I am here for it!  It blends classic denim with modern style, making it as practical as it is fabulous. I like to cinch the belt at the waist to create an hourglass shape and of course, I paired it with one of the most versatile pairs of jeans I own, my Agolde Rileys. Whatever way you choose to style it, just make sure to opt for a pair of chic heels to take your look to the next level.

TIP #2: ADD A THIRD LAYER

Tip No.2- which is to add a third layer – might seem basic, but you’d be surprised how often even the most stylish people forget it! At this point I feel underdressed without a 3rd layer, it’s become second nature to me. This Chanel-inspired tweed blazer is a perfect example of how that 3rd layer can make or break your whole look. I love the fit of this gorgeous blazer, and though it might look like Chanel, the price suggests otherwise! I wear a XS and it fits true to size.

TIP # 3: CARRY A SMALLER HANDBAG

In one of my recent Youtube videos I was sharing how oversized or large handbags are not only out of style, they can take away from your whole look. That’s why my 3rd style tip to elevate your outfit is to carry a smaller handbag! You don’t want to go too small and not be able to take the essentials, but not so large as to overtake your frame. Something like this option from Kurt Greiger is the perfect size, and it has a pretty decent price point as well!

TIP #4: UNBUTTON YOUR JACKET AND PUSH UP THE SLEEVES

This is another style tip I swear by and you’ll see me using it all the time. Unbuttoning my 3rd layer, wearing it open, and pushing up the sleeves is probably my favorite way to wear jackets! It tightens up my silhouette and accentuates the more form sitting layer I usually wear underneath. Not to mention, I find it way more comfortable to wear jackets and blazers this way. This utility jacket is a great example of a 3rd layer that could potentially look boxy or frumpy without this style tip, and it has a great price point! I wear an XS and it fits true to size.

TIP #5: ADD A NECK STACK

No 5. on my list of 5 style tips to elevate your outfit is a personal style tip I SWEAR BY. Scrolling through my IG or LTK, you’ll see I almost always wear a necklace stack. My signature piece for years has been this YSL two-toned chained necklace, but I’ve been switching it up a bit lately and have found myself reaching for this gorgeous gold bar necklace more often. I love the dainty feminine vibe and the quality here is AMAZING! If this one is a bit out of budget I found a similar style for a lower price point. Whatever you choose, adding a neck stack is a surefire way to take your look to the next level!
