It doesn’t take much to feel like you have an entirely new wardrobe. A few, choice items and it will feel like an all new you.

A new coat or jacket is a sure way to update your look. Look at outerwear as an investment that may not be used as much as other pieces of clothing, but will outlast many of them altogether.

Adding an accessory can instantly brighten and transform your look. Just think of how a new belt, colorful socks, or great tie can change the look of what is already in your closet.

Daresay, a new pair of shoes is probably the most transformative clothing item you can get – nothing makes you feel like new like fresh footwear.

A Different Cut

Sometimes going just a little outside your usual boundaries, will make a big difference. Case in point: Knitwear is a seasonal staple, but switch up the ole sweater for a shawl-collared cardigan for a change.

It may not be clothing, but you still wear it on your body – and a new fragrance has the ability to envelop you in the feeling of something luxurious and new just like a piece clothing can.

Bag It Up

Another item that should be viewed as an investment is your bag that will simultaneously and instantly upgrade any look.

New Stores

A really great way of changing up your style a little is to simply try out new stores. You may have your selection of clothiers, but that also means your style stays within that realm. Switching up your shopping habits can mean great things to your look!
