Dress up your simple outfit of jeans and a t-shirt by adding a belt. It could be one with a cute buckle, or with cool designs on it. Like these....
This will give you the look that you have a simple outfit because of the "cool level" of your belt. You don't want too many things going on, so if you have a "crazy" looking belt and the rest of your outfit is simple, like converse and a plain t-shirt, it will look like you planned it!
2. Layer it!
Add layers. This is something I have done a lot with my outfits in the past. Layer a little cover-up vest(whats the official name?!) under a coat or cardigan. You could also layer shirts. This will give you a cool "dressed up" feel. Or just the feel of being "in style"! Layers have been "in" for so long now!
They are called "loose cardigans" :)
Add a pop of color with a cool scarf, or a ruffly one. Keep the rest simpler, going off of the same concept of our belt theme.
I hope these tips helped someone out there! All the scarves excluding the chain link one and the two brown belts(not the one with peace signs) were found at http://www.forever21.com ! The others were just on google images :)
Emilea-a "fashionista" even if dressed like a hobo ;)
