5 Things To Make Sure Your Outfit Always Looks Amazing

If you're looking at your outfit in the mirror and thinking this looks a little lacklustre, then you might be missing one or two of these little touches which can take a look from boring to chic. If you don't want to wear all 5 together, you need to at least aim for one -- according to the third-piece rule. 

The third-piece rule is the idea of wearing outfits consisting of three key pieces. First you have your base which is usually your top and bottoms, then you need to add a third piece to pull the look together. The third piece is an accessory or garment that injects personality into your look.

Some say you shouldn't include your shoes in this, which we think is true if you're wearing a pair that are pretty simple or classic, however we think that a pair of printed shoes can add enough personality to the look to be counted as your third-piece if you wanted them to!  

1) Wide Brimmed Fedora
Ah the wide-brimmed fedora, a fashion favourite. What can we say, it just makes you look super stylish. Great for shopping or lunch with friends, not so great for uni lectures and a night out on the town though...

2) Stylish Sunglasses
The oldest celebrity trick in the book -- a pair of stylish sunglasses. If you've not got a pair ready to hand every time the sun shows its face then, I'm sorry, but we can't be friends ;)

3) Bold Lipstick
Whether you opt for a punky pink, classic red or deep purple, a bold lip is a for-sure way to bring life to a simple outfit. It's such a simple way to pull a look together.

4) Layered Necklaces or Rings
You don't have to go OTT when it comes to jewellery, but a couple of layered necklaces or a stack of rings is a great way to add a little extra style to your look!

5) An element of Colour or Print or Texture 
If you've got your base sorted you could add some printed shoes or a colourful bag and if you're already fully dressed, then you can insert one of these elements with an accent of some sort. Why not try a shirt around your waist, a furry scarf, a leather biker jacket or an embossed bag.

So there you have it! Those are five things we like to add to our looks to make everything that little bit more interesting. How do you inject personality into your outfits?
