7 Ways to Upgrade Any Outfit

I have created a weeks worth of outfits by swapping out one piece!  I started with my goto Levis, Oxford, and Chelsea Boots, then raided my closet.  This literally took a matter of minutes to create SEVEN totally different looks.  You can start with boyfriend jeans and an oxford like I did or add in your goto outfit!

The Swept Off Your Feet Scarf

Adding a vintage scarf immediately adds color and dimension to any look.  Of course, you can style the scarf a thousand ways but thats a post of its own.

The School Girl Sweater

The look is the perfect way to try out the underwear as outerwear trend.  Start with a cropped sweater and maybe work your way up to a bralette!

The Pretty in Plaid

Plaid, plaid, plaid blah blah blah. Its everywhere its perfect and I highly recommend it.

The Chic Shell

Add a fur top to any outfit for a luxurious (and warm) feel.  Also, how cute is the collar poking out?!

The Canadian 

You know I love me some denim on denim.  This long denim jacket is the perfect finish to any look.

The Fashion Cape

A high low top similar to this piece adds lots of dimension to this look.  The black and white is super classic and chic but highly unexpected.

The Lazy Leather Jacket 

If you are a street style stalker like me, you know there are a thousand ways to wear a jacket.  This off the shoulder tie totally caught my eye.  It is so effortless, like you are too chic to even put on a jacket.  This could work with any of your favorites, not just leather!

  1. I love this idea! Its so much smarter to learn how to style one piece of clothing in 7 ways rather than buying 7 different outfits. Especially like the school girl sweater, have never seen that idea!!
