If you’re anything like me, then you likely struggle figuring out ways to make your wardrobe staples feel fresh. This makes it even more tempting to shop impulsively for a completely new wardrobe. But oftentimes, all it takes is a few styling tricks to maximize the items you already own. To help you guys make the most of your spring wardrobe without spending a ton of money, I’m sharing some of the fresh styling tricks I’ve been employing lately.

1. Waist Belts

Waist belts are an inexpensive way to make a basic piece feel completely brand new. I love wearing chain belts over dresses, wide waist belts with blazers, and tie belts atop oversized button down shirts. Whenever an outfit feels bland, grab a belt and wrap it around the waist. And when you’ve mastered the art of wearing belts, you can begin to layer two together for a unique ensemble.

2. Get unbuttoned

Sometimes, styling tricks don’t have to come in the form of accessories. It just takes some simple tucking, buttoning, or unbuttoning to look chic and effortless. This spring, I’m all about that unbuttoned, undone look.

Whether it’s a blazer or flirty summer blouse that buttons all the way down, try securing the first few buttons and leaving the rest loose. I especially love this look with high-waisted pants.

3. Try a cardigan

Cardigans are the spring piece everyone needs to own. Make your off-duty looks feel casual but sophisticated by skipping your sweatshirt or basic tee and opting for a fitted cardigan. You can wear it tucked into pants or a skirt. If you’re working with layers, you can tie a cardigan over your shoulders as the day warms up.

4. Mix polar opposites

Mixing polar opposites is probably my specialty whether it’s colors or certain trends. There’s just something about mixing the unexpected that I find so alluring. So, wear trousers with a vintage tee, a floral dress with chunky sneakers, or an evening blouse with colored denim. With color, never be afraid to pair brights like green and yellow or pink and red.

5. Wear your blazer as a shirt

Lately, I’ve been wearing blazers as a top rather than a jacket. The deep plunging neckline is subtly sexy and is balanced out with the long sleeves.

You can pull this off with denim, trousers, or skirts. It looks ultra polished with pointed toe kitten heels.

6. Layer a wrap top

Wrap tops and dresses have been super trendy lately, which makes it the perfect time to layer them with other pieces in your wardrobe. I’ll usually go for a poplin top or a plain t-shirt. What makes this styling trick so flattering is the waist-cinching effect.

7. It’s all in the shoe

If there’s one reason that explicates my shoe obsession, it’s that shoes can really make a look. This season’s sculptural heels can elevate the simplest outfits – or make a statement look that much more street style worthy. Jacquemus makes some of the most beautiful options, but you can also find more affordable ones from Cult Gaia and Mango.
