WARDROBE REFRESH: HOW TO STYLE YOUR BASICS

Running out of outfit ideas? See how to refresh your wardrobe favourites with these easy styling tips, from adding light layers to wearing standout accessories

Layer it up

Layering can make even the most tried-and-tested outfits feel brand new and is a clever way to get more use out of your wardrobe basics. Update a pretty dress – we love the floral print on this midi – by adding a sporty sweatshirt. Tie it loosely around your shoulders for a preppy twist and finish off the look with a pair of eye-catching sneakers. An oversized linen shirt is another versatile layering piece; try rolling up the sleeves and wearing it over a flowing midi dress for a cool-yet-casual look.


A new take on jeans and a nice top

Another day, another T-shirt and jeans combo? Take a fashion-forward approach to casual dressing by swapping a plain tee with a statement blouse. Look for bright shades and joyful prints to give your wardrobe a breath of fresh air. We love the mixed florals and seafoam shade of this tie-detail blouse, which pairs perfectly with denim. Or why not dress up your denim with a supersized collar? The vogue for Peter Pan collars shows no sign of fading and this white blouse with floral embroidery is a chic take on the trend. Wondering how to refresh your wardrobe for going out-out? Dress up jeans and an eye-catching blouse with heels and gold jewellery.


Amp up your accessories

Want in instant boost to your favourite outfit? Treat yourself to a fresh pair of sneakers. This season’s styles are all about distinctive details that add pizzaz to any outfit. Give your feet a treat in these chunky sneakers, which have an extra cool factor thanks to the oversized soles and flashes of orange. They’re also ultra comfy, with Insolia Flex technology that helps keep your feet in the right position when walking. New jewellery is a quick and easy way to refresh failsafe outfits – we have our eyes on this statement freshwater pearl necklace.
