As much as I love to dress up, my favorite outfit has always been a simple tee and jeans. It’s comfortable and always in style. But sometimes, I get tired of wearing the same old white t-shirt. Especially while I’ve been on my trip here in Italy, I’ve been trying to find new and exciting ways to dress up my everyday outfits, since I basically wear a tee and jeans everyday. While it’s cute, it can be a little monotonous. We all want to be comfortable and cute, right? I’ve been incorporating these six items into my wardrobe to style up my favorite go-to outfits.
Hats aren’t only for bad hair days! Hats add a serious style boost that you can wear for any occasion. I love the baseball hat trend going on right now, and there are so many different options to choose from! You can go for your old college hat, or go shopping for a nice suede or leather one. And you’re not tied down to just one style, all kinds of hats will really pump up the style factor on your outfit.
Sunglasses are one of my must-have items, and they can really add a different element to your outfit. The options are endless with a pair of sunglasses. You can go for cat eye, reflective, aviator, or something really different. Sunglasses add an edgy feel to an outfit that can add a great finishing touch.
Bonus tip: you don’t have to wear the sunglasses for the style boost – hanging them off your shirt or placing them on your head still adds a nice touch.
Since I’ve been abroad, I haven’t been on a makeup kick, especially since the weather here in Italy is ridiculously hot. But as the weather cools down, I’m definitely going to be adding some color to my look with some lipsticks. My favorite has always been mauve-y nude colors, (this one from bite cosmetics is my all-time favorite) but literally any lipstick will do. If you want to look a little more done-up, a bright pop of color could do the trick to really make your look complete.
I came to Italy with only two bags, a black carry-on bag, and a black cross body. I have a really bad habit of buying everything in black. So now that I’m here, I’m on the lookout for another crossbody bag. I’m currently dreaming of this Gucci one. I think that a really cool bag with a texture can really amp up the style factor on a basic dress or tee.
Shoes are one of my favorite ways to change up a look. Going with a simple black bodycon dress, you can dress it up with a par of heels or give it a sporty cool-girl look with quilted slip-ons. I also love a great athleisure look, so I have been wearing sneakers non-stop.
