You probably like to play it safe when it comes to fashion. You go with tried and tested cuts in basic colors since those always work. But while the classics are great go-to’s for your daily look, there’s no harm in jazzing them up. Make your outfits more interesting with these easy-to-do style tips that won’t stray too far from your comfort zone.
Play with contrasts
A solid-colored outfit can instantly pop when contrasted by a solid-colored bag on the opposite side of the spectrum. Keep things together with a pair of nude heels.

Go beyond the basics
A white top and a pair of slacks are pretty basic. Be creative with one piece—like a cold-shoulder top—and instantly add more personality to your look.
Accentuate with frills and ruffles
If you’re going for a monochromatic look, make sure that a detail of your outfit stands out to give a bit more dimension.

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize
Faded denim and beige pieces can look clean but may lack a bit of punch. Add a bit of sparkle by wearing statement earrings and a pair of classic sunglasses.
Finish your look with a textured piece
A soft silhouette in pastels may seem plain, but a coverup with an interesting texture can make your outfit look chic and current.
