Hey there, lovely people! Today we’re going about a year back in the archives for a super helpful fashion post. These are some ways I like to make my outfits look more feminine and cute, and I’m so excited to share them with you again!! Plus, for you who are reading this the second time, I added two more tips at the end:) So stay tuned!!
Post originally published here.
Let’s be honest. We want to have cute outfits, but a plain t-shirt and pair of shorts alone usually aren’t enough. In my fashion blog posts, I aim to help you put together adorable outfits without having to spend hours on them. When you have a plain, unflattering outfit, try a few of these tips to make it look feminine and stylish in just a couple minutes.
1. Tuck in Your Shirt
Simply tucking in your shirt turns unflattering clothing into a fitted, styled top. It makes your waistline seem higher and creates a more polished look.
2. Add a Cute Belt
A cute belt goes well with tip 1 as it works as a simple accessory to make shorts and pants look less plain and more styled.
3. Highlight Your Eyes
You don’t need to pile on the makeup, but just a touch of mascara highlights your eyes and eyelashes, making a subtle, but powerful difference.
4. Add Well-Placed Jewelry
One dainty necklace, bracelet, or set of earrings effortlessly adds a little feminine touch to an outfit.
5. Add a Hair Scarf or Bow
Adding a colorful accessory to your hair makes even ponytails pop. (Tip: summer yard sales are the perfect place to find cheap, cute hair scarves!)
6. Paint Your Nails
I’m usually not into painting my nails, but I recently decided to and was happily surprised. You don’t have to do any crazy designs or colors; even a little bit of color sets the mood and makes your overall look more feminine.
7. Find a Cute Hairstyle
8. Add a Cardigan or Jacket
I LOVE doing this. If you have a plain top and you need some layering, put a cardigan or open jacket over it. It adds some dimension to the outfit and also gives a little more coverage if your shirt is a bit tight.
9. Put on a Somewhat-Coordinated Mask
Ok, maybe you’ll need to order a pack of masks for this, but when I have a few cute, simple, colorful masks, I can color coordinate a bit and add a lot of dimension to my outfit. If we have to wear masks, we might as well make it fun! 😊
The next time your outfit needs a simple and cute change, try a few of these tips! My advice is very simple, but if you put just a couple minutes into doing these few extra things, your outfits will look cuter – and you don’t have to break the bank or spend hours on your clothes.
Spring break is coming up! Do you have any plans?!
