The devil really is in the detail. These five stylish tricks will take good outfits and make them great (or, in this day and age, Instagram-worthy). We present to you the five street-style commandments guaranteed to elevate your everyday wardrobe.


1. Belt it

The secret ingredient to the ultimate ‘jeans-and-a-tee’ look? Break it up with belt. It instantly delineates the two parts of your outfit, making it feel more considered. Try it with slip skirts, too.

2. Switch up your denim

It needn’t be the silhouette you change to make day-to-day denim feel more exciting. Look for button-flies, side stripes or turn-up details to update yours now.

3. French-tuck it

Add definition by artfully tucking only the front of your shirt into the waist of your trousers, a la Meghan Markle.

4. Add a little je ne sais quoi

Tie neck-scarves around wrists, bag handles or wear them in your hair. Or, wear them around your neck, of course.

5. Pay attention to detail

We’re all guilty of paying little to no attention to the boring things in our outfit – specifically our socks. Instead of reaching for the first pair you can grab at 7am, you’ll be amazed what a difference a more considered approach can make! And never forget jewellery – layer yours to instantly level-up a look.
