All In The Detailing + WIWT - Neutrals + A Discount Code

Morning ladies today I want to talk about detailing & the small details that transform a plain outfit into something that little bit more special.  Items that lift a simple shirt & jeans combo to have a little wow factor.

I was recently asked how you could make an outfit feel special when you remove your jacket as the lady in question mentioned she always felt her outfit looked plain once she removed her jacket.

For me the key to creating a statement on wardrobe classics is in the detailing.  Whether this be a simple white shirt that has a ruffled collar or some front pleated detailing, to a statement sleeve or splash of lace.  Equally a statement shoe teamed with wardrobe basics will be a true game changer to the how you feel & look.  As will a studded belt, statement necklace or of course releasing your inner Bet & throwing on a splash of leopard print.

As you can see from the above items, I've featured some of my favourite accessories & tops that really do breathe new life into the simplest of outfits & allow you to add some personality & individuality to your look.  As always just click on the individual item for further details.

Of course not only are accessories important but how you wear your clothing.  You can always just tuck the front of your shirt in to create some interest not to mention unbutton a few buttons of your shirt & wear with a lace cami peeking through, or just roll up your sleeves - all these simple changes really do make a different to how an outfit can look.

As can colour combinations.  As you can see from today's outfit I'm keeping things nice & simples for a casual Sunday & styling some grey neutrals with a simple white shirt & using the tan accessories to create some focus & add a little interest.
