Looking more fashionable isn’t always about wearing the trendiest, most expensive clothes, or mastering some complex styling trick. Sometimes it’s as easy as just tucking in your shirt or throwing on a pair of sunglasses.
1. Add a motorcycle jacket.
A good motorcycle jacket improves every outfit; it doesn’t matter if it’s jeans and a T-shirt, a formal gown, or gym clothest. Black leather is the classic choice, but it’s not a must. Colors, prints, embellishments, whatever! It’s all good.
2. Wear your jacket on your shoulders.
Don’t think of your jacket as a jacket. Think of it as a cape with sleeves. Sleeves you are never EVER to put your arms into.
3. Layers, layers, and more layers.
The more layers you have, the less likely any one piece is to really make or break your outfit, so go crazy — a coat, over a jacket, over a mesh shirt, over a crop top. With a belt. And leather leggings. Under a skirt. You’re an onion. A fashionable onion.
Whatever you would normally choose for footwear, choose the opposite. Trade your high heels for flat booties, your sneakers for high heels, and your sandals for sneakers. The more wrong it feels, the more right it is.
5. Wear something really small with something really big.
A crop top with a ball skirt. An oversized top with cut-off shorts. Looking fashionable is all about playing with proportion and contrast. Not just big with small, but also hard with soft, tight with loose, and heavy with light.
