When done correctly, these smaller details can make you look both casual and refined.
We have three smaller details to help you. Try wearing a great bold piece of jewellery that becomes the focal point of your look. Try embracing heals. We know they may be uncomfortable but they make your legs look amazing and after all, beauty is pain. Try wearing a quirky hat, not only will this help you on a bad hair day, but it will also make you instantly stylish.

4. Lipstick Trick.
If you’re feeling dull or ordinary, why not try putting on a bright or bold lipstick. This has the power to take your look from average to instantly stylish in seconds. Purple is the colour to beat. Purple lipstick looks effortless and elegant for every occasion, unlike red lipstick which is so familiar. Find one that looks best for your skin, and embrace these smaller details.
