9 Super Ways to Change your Look!!


1. START WITH THE BASICS



Instead of picking up every patterned piece you lay eyes on, it’s best to start off with a few key neutral items. For example, blue jeans, a black blazer, and white tees are closet staples. With the right accessories, you’ll be making more than a few style statements in no time.



2. DONATE YOUR DUDS



An often overlooked (yet vital) way to change your look is to get rid of everything you haven’t worn in ages. My personal rule: if it hasn’t been worn in six months or more, it’s a goner. After you bag up those castaways, do a quick google search; major retailers sometimes offer discounts when you donate your old stuff in-store. 


3. INVEST IN FUNKY ACCESSORIES



One simple way to change your look is to start off small. Accessories like bracelets, brooches, and hats are typically inexpensive yet eye-catching. Since I tend to favor classic cuts and solid colors, I let loose when it comes to the trimmings. Think neon brights, animals prints, and tribal patterns –(almost) nothing is off limits!


4. CUT YOUR HAIR


And I don’t just mean a quick trim. If you’ve always wanted to tame your tresses, schedule that salon appointment. But before you hit the chair, I’d advise you to try your new ‘do before you buy! I’m a big fan of this celebrity hairstyle tool over at instyle.com, where you can upload your photo and see how you’d look with the locks of famous ladies.



5. DYE IT


A major way to change your look is to dye your hair. We’ve all daydreamed about rocking a fabulous new hue, so why not buy that bottle of hair dye? If you’re feeling apprehensive, go a shade or two lighter or darker for a toned down (but still fabulous!) look.



6. DIY IT


Do it yourself (DIY) projects can take your wardrobe from drab to fab –especially if you have tons of ideas up your sleeve. DIY works best when you have your besties by your side to tell you whether or not that third button is really necessary. Your classmates will be wondering how you got those amazing new pieces, but my lips are sealed!



7. REFRESH YOUR MAKEUP STASH


If you’re looking for a way to change your look almost instantly, a Sephora trip is in order. A new eye shadow palette, lash-lengthening mascara, bronzer, and gloss can make you the center of attention… tomorrow morning. You’ll look –and feel– like a brand new you after a few swipes.



8. STOCK UP ON SCARVES


When it comes to ways to change your look, it doesn’t get much easier than scarves. I use scarves to spruce up my outfits in a more traditional sense (as in, around my neck!) but they can also be used as headpieces. Or, tie one around an old bag to make it look trendy and fresh. If you can dream it, you can do it!



9. SPRAY ON A NEW SCENT


Ladies, it’s great to keep the focus on your clothing and accessories. After all, they’ll be the center of attention. But let me warn you: if you strut out smelling like yesterday’s dirty laundry, all that effort will have been for nothing. So, set aside some time to shop for a brand new scent – with your BFF, of course!
