5 Tips On Classing Up Any Outfit

One of the biggest trends at the moment is the casual/classy look. This means mixing in some classy elements into your casual outfits. This way you can use your favorite garments and walk into your next event feeling confident. After all, confidence is the best accessory! :) Like the idea of classing up your outfits? Take a look at these 5 tips on how you can class up any outfit!



Heels


If there’s one item of clothing that can turn a casual outfit into a classy one, it’s the good old pair of heels. And they don’t have to be stilettos either! There’s something so classy about the open footed shoe that nobody would usually dare wear without a dress or a skirt event. Try pairing your slim fit jeans with your heels and you’ll see what we mean! Pair that with a flowing top and you’ll look super put together and classy.

Rings


Rings look incredible no matter what. Whether you’re married, engaged, or simply like wearing rings, they are a simple, yet bold accessory that can help class up pretty much any outfit. Literally even just a tee and a pair of jeans are instantly elevated when paired with some gam statement rings. The great thing about many jewelers such as https://yourdiamondguru.com/reviews/blue-nile/, is that you’re able to design your ring and more importantly, your diamond around your personal preferences, style, and even budget!

Handbags


While the carefree, no-handbag look is great, there’s nothing quite like accessorizing with a cute handbag. Personally, I love to carry my wallet, hand sanitizer, lip gloss, mints, and some hair ties with me everywhere I go. I definitely need a bag in my life! The great thing about bags is that there are so many different styles to match the mood, style, and color that you almost can’t go wrong with your choice! 

Watches


Watches are good for more than just telling the time. Some cute arm candy can really amp up your outfit. Since we are talking about classing up outfits, why not try something with a little sparkle? Diamante watch straps add bling and class to your outfit. Adding a bit of sparkle is always a good thing! (I'm a little biased, since I love all things sparkly and glittery!)

Smile! :)


Finally, a sure way of classing up every single outfit you wear is by smiling! Everyone looks better when they smile. "A glad heart makes a cheerful face..." - Proverbs 15:13 The number one tip on classing up any outfit, and just in general MAKE your outfit, is a joyful smile.

5 Outfit Planning Tips

This post is sponsored by Purple Trail, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I only recommend companies and products that I have personally tried and loved.


In what feels like the blink of an eye, 2018 has come and gone. We are almost in the 20's! When I was younger I was always curious as to how we would refer the 20's, 30's, etc. Will we call it 2020's, 2030's, etc? It won't be too long before we find out. (eek!) Anyways, today I am sharing 5 outfit planning tips with you. January is the month that I like to plan out the year and list what I would like to do throughout the year. This year I am using this adorable planner from Purple Trail. Since I have been unicorn obsessed since I was a tween (and still am), I chose this adorable floral unicorn planner. How cute is the little face! I will be featuring parts of my new planner throughout this post.


And of course when planning out the year, outfit planning is a must. Here are 5 tips that I incorporate when planning my outfits throughout the year. Do you have tips of your own? I'd love to hear!

P.S. Look at my blog name of my planner, how cute is that?!

Making The Most Out Of Winter Fashion

Winter fashion is well in force, and with the colder weather, we can often feel at a loss when it comes to trying to be stylish. But, winter gives you so many opportunities to wear not only comfortable clothes, but also clothing that looks fabulous. Come rain or shine, you can rock the season, and so here are some of the ways that you can make the most out of it. 






Enjoying wearing hats and scarves


A hat and a scarf should be consider two of winters staples when it comes to fashion and style, and they can really make a big difference to how your outfit looks. As well as keeping you essentially warm on the colder days. From chunky knit beanies to scarves that cover the whole of your upper half, there really is a lot to choose from. Many people are now choosing to make a statement with these tow accessories and are likely to have bright colours or big prints. 

Embracing the chunky knitwear


On the subject of chunky knits, this is the season to embrace all styles of the jumper. The chunkier and oversized the better. It is just something that works so well at this time of year. A chunky knit, teamed with a skinny pair of jeans and boots and you really are onto a winner. Again you can choose something neutral and understated, or be bright and bold with colours. 

Layers are a great way to dress the season



Winter can often throw you a curveball with weather every now and again. One day you will find it starts off cold and gets sunnier with a hint of warmth in the air as the day goes on. Other days start off raining and end up with snow or sun. This is when adding layers to your outfit can help you out. Keeping you warm and then enabling you to cool down as well if the temperature rises by a few degrees. 


Boots galore


It is the season to embrace all of the boots. You can choose Ugg boots that give you that comfort factor while still looking stylish. You can choose ankle leather boots with a heel, or go for something dressier like over the knee. They all look great at this time of year and definitely should be worth the investment. 


You can still wear a skirt or dress


Finally, may people think that winter means you need to wear trousers and jumpers all of the time. This is a great style to go with, but it is not your only option. You can still rock the dress and the skirt at this time of year, and it can look amazing. A long dress or skirt teamed with boots and a jumper looks just as good as a jeans and jumper combination. You could choose shorter skirts and rock tights to give your outfit a dressier feel. Don’t feel confirmed to wearing one style this season, you really can wear what you like and have it still look amazing. 


Let’s hope this has given you some fashion inspiration for the next few months ahead.

DIY Ruffle Wrap Skirt Sewing Tutorial


This outfit was actually my Thanksgiving outfit, but I'm barely just posting the sewing tutorial for this skirt. That's life, right? November and December always go by way too fast, probably because of all of the end of the year festivities. (Christmas is in a week!)

I actually made this skirt the night before Thanksgiving, so I didn't take any photos since it was dark. I made another one and took photos of the process. The first time I made a wrap skirt was when I made my Anchor Print Wrap Skirt using a pattern. I didn't want to use a pattern this time, mostly because I had one night to make it hehe. I did some quick research online and played around with the fabric and ended up making this wrap skirt with no pattern.


THE FABRIC


This gorgeous crushed velvet is from Mily Mae Fabrics. I seriously get all of my velvet from Amanda's shop. Not only is the selection beautiful, but also affordably priced. This is listed as "nude," but it has a pinkish tone to it, which I absolutely love. Also, the weight is nice for skirts, since it is not super thin that I would have to wear a slip underneath.


THE OUTFIT


I linked some options for my outfit below. I couldn't find my top in the same color since I found mine at TJ Maxx. I literally walked into the store and immediately saw it. I don't normally go for brighter colors, but this one was too cute to pass up! I got my hat at Amazon, but I linked the one I was planning on getting from Forever 21. I just got mine on Amazon, because I was feeling impatient and it was a Prime item. :)
