Cuff your Jeans

The best way to show off your killer heels and platforms is by rolling your jeans up. Quickly transform your basic blouse and jeans into an instant casual outfit by rolling up your jeans, just once into a large cuff. See how I rolled my maroon jeans to create some length.

Roll Up your Sleeves

You can get inexpensive chiffon blouses from Forever21 and H&M nowadays, it seems like almost every fashionista has at least 3 or 4 of these sheer button-ups in their closet. Rather than keeping your sleeves resting on your wrists, utilize the button midway on the sleeve and roll up your sleeves to show a little more skin. I find that a lot of trendy blouses tend me make me look wider when the sleeves are down. To help make my outfits a bit more playful and fitted, I roll my sleeves up.

Button up

This goes against everything I say about elongating your neck to appear taller and leaner, but to change up your look try buttoning up your shirt to the collar. Buttoning your shirt up to your collar allows you to sport your statement necklace without having it clash with your cleavage.

Tuck in your Shirt

Fashion bloggers love to indulge in the tuck. Tuck your shirt into your skater skirt, pencil skirt, jeans, high-waisted shorts, or trousers. You can even tuck your shirt several different ways.

There is the front tuck, where you just tuck in the front into the area around the button and zipper, letting the rest of the shirt hang effortlessly. There is the half tuck, where you take half of the front of your shirt and tuck it into the top of your pants. The full tuck is a great way to elongate the legs and keep the outfit clean and put together.

Unzip

Zippers are a creative way to play with fit and style. If you have them on your shorts, give your legs some breathing room. Unzip the sides of your shorts for a casual and playful look. Layer lace accents under pieces you unzip to give a sexy bit of spice to your outfit without giving it all away. Or unzip the back of a dress completes and turn it into a skirt.

  1. These are the perfect ways to make a really casual outfit look more, flattering, feminine and stylish as well, which I love! Next time I wear a short skirt I’m buttoning up with a statement necklace on top for balance – thanks!

  2. Buttoning up a shirt and adding a statement necklace is such a good idea. I’m so used to leaving the top 2 or 3 buttons undone on most of my shirts that I usually forget that I can actually style it with all the buttons done! 🙂
