From Ordinary To Stylish: 4 Tips To Switch Up Your Clothes


Today we want to provide you with 4 tips to switch up your clothes.  It is Monday and you are going to be late for work again. Now, why is that? You are rummaging through your closet and going through a bit of a crisis not finding anything to wear. There’s the same black sheath dress you wore last Thursday to a meeting with your boss, the same red pantsuit you wore to lunch with your colleagues, the same black heels you wear for every occasion, and the list goes on and on and on.

We have all been there. We often think that our clothes are not as good or fancy as those of our friend’s or our colleagues. And what do we do? After dwelling on it for about 10 minutes, we decide to wear the same black sheath dress we wore last week.

But guess what? We are here to tell you that you can change your so-called ordinary clothes into stylish ones with just a few touch-ups. Keep on reading to find out what you can do to change up your clothes and wear something entirely new.

First, let’s start with the most ordinary clothes we have: T-shirts.

We often feel like a white or black t-shirt with just a simple picture design on it seems dull. However, you can always show your personal style by spicing up your outfit with a shirt that is colorful and includes cool writing like I can do all things through Christ shirt. There is such a variety of t-shirts with cool writings and you can find the ones that best fit your personality and things that you are aligned with. It is great when you buy clothing from places that support your beliefs and values, like for example donating a percentage of the profit which goes to the impoverished children all around the world. So, you can be stylish and charitable at the same time.

Jeans never go out of style

Second, let’s take a look at how you can combine your jeans with a cute blouse. You might think that it doesn’t look good when you combine your ripped jeans with a simple classic top, but sometimes, going simple is so much better. Even if you feel like your outfit does not seem memorable, put on some statement accessories and you have yourself a perfect outfit for a night out with your friends. 

Dresses to impress

Tips To Switch Up Your ClothesWhat about dresses? Since fashion trends change every season, we see all kinds of new and quirky styles to make it to the runways. We certainly never thought that we would be wearing a slip dress with slides. All you need is to find a silky dress or any type of comfortable luxurious material and some cool slides and you are ready to go meet your friends for brunch. It also works for semi-formal parties. Many supermodels and bloggers have begun the trend of combining laid-back dresses with sneakers, too. 

So, what is the newest fashion trend? Put on a pair of jeans, a cute blouse or a plain t-shirt, add a cool necklace or a colorful bracelet and you got yourself a “fashionable” outfit that didn’t take too long to combine. Something that you may wear on a Sunday to go to the store turns out to be the same outfit you may wear for a night out.

Let’s talk tricks!

Besides going casual and adding a piece of jewelry to look stylish, you can also try altering your clothes. Here are a few tricks to make them breathe in some new life.

You can always upgrade your old denim jacket and decorate it with embroidered details. All you need are some colorful threads and a needle to sew them in. Also, if you want to be more creative, you can make a cool denim skirt out of your ripped jeans. Again, you can combine it with a crop top and some Converse sneakers and you are good to go.

Tips To Switch Up Your ClothesWhat has also become a new fashion trend is decorating your plain white sneakers with embroidery. These decorations include painting your sneakers with watercolors or sewing in some design patches onto them. 

Lastly, let’s not forget the newest makeup trends and hairstyles. Have you noticed that on some recent fashion week shows, the supermodels have little to almost no makeup on? As the fashion trends change from designer clothes and high platform stiletto heels to regular clothes from Gap and flats and sneakers, makeup trends also change. Almost every model or a blogger settles for a minimalistic look with maybe just a pop of lipstick and a messy bun to make it more noticeable.

So, tomorrow, when you are getting ready for work or to go out with your friends, don’t be afraid to pull out an old dress and style it with some cool jacket you have not worn in a long time. You can even combine a t-shirt with office pants and just add a piece of jewelry and some heels, and you will look fabulous. Don’t be shy and dig deeper into yourself and find that creative side that you have been hiding for years now. If you can’t do that, then you can always turn to some influencers and copy their ideas. They will never know!

How to Style A Denim Jacket


Did you ever want to know how to style a denim jacket?  If so, keep reading.  What are the classic men’s fashion items, those that simply do not go out of fashion? Jeans are an obvious choice, of course, and the simple, plain t-shirt another, but we think there’s one that you might have overlooked: the denim jacket. Available in a number of different styles and fits, and also in different colors, it’s something every man should have at least one of, but how do you wear it?

That depends entirely on your personal preference, but we think there are a few essential fashion tips that apply to denim jackets, and we’ve put them in this article for you. Remember, this is not a strict guide – you can wear your denim jacket how you want – but it should help you get the look right!

Get the Right Fit

Fit is all-important when it comes to any fashion garment, but with the denim jacket there are a number of important considerations. The classic, loose denim jacket that will go perfectly with a pair of jeans is often the first choice, but we recommend you look around as there are different shapes that you can buy. In fact, a fitted – or partially fitted – denim jacket, one that feels snug and comfortable and finishes a touch short at the waist, is one of the most popular and versatile styles.


Choose Your Color

Denim jackets are blue, right? Well, it’s probably true that most of them are, but these days you can get different colors that look equally good. Black is a great choice – and a popular one – as it looks different, while a dark brown denim jacket might also appeal. If you can carry it off, a white denim jacket also looks great – pair it with your favorite skinny jeans and a plain t-shirt – but be aware it will get dirty easily! The choice of color will depend upon what you want to wear your denim jacket with, so consider that too. Overall, the most versatile are blue and black, so check them both out.

Jeans or Trousers?

The great thing about a denim jacket, especially the traditional blue denim, is that it will look great with either jeans or trousers, especially if you pick the right color. There’s a certain style to wearing brightly colored trousers with a denim jacket, and if you check this website you’ll get some further ideas about how to be a bit different, but we suggest keeping to blue or black with your denim as it\s the best way, and you really can’t go wrong.

Shirts, Jumpers and T-shirts

Let’s be honest, there’s no more versatile outerwear than a simple, stylish denim jacket. It’s got to be one of the staple items in a wardrobe, and looks equally good with a shirt, a t-shirt or even with a jumper of sweater. What we will advise is that you keep the colours matching rather than directly contrasting, as a denim jacket is an understated item, and you want it to remain so.

What about Headgear?

If you’re someone who likes to wear a hat, you’re spot on with a denim jacket, no matter the type you prefer. Denim lends itself to being worn with everything from a beanie hat to a Stetson – remember it was the ranch hands who made denim popular originally – so you can simply pick and choose, and for some men, a hat is the final fashion statement in their armory.

Open or Closed?

There are some fashion items – your suit jacket, for example – for which you have set rules when it comes to buttons; for a denim jacket, there are none. The cool, summer look is to wear it loose and open with a t-shirt on display, but the winter nights mean buttoning it up is perfectly acceptable. One point to remember when you are choosing your denim jacket is to make sure you can do the buttons up, and comfortably – you’ll be surprised there are many where you can’t!

If you don’t already have a denim jacket, now is definitely the time to be looking at the options, so take on board the tips above, and start shopping for one of the most usable, versatile items that you’ll ever buy.
