Quick Style!

The smallest tweaks to your outfit can make all the difference. These are the easiest styling tricks that will make you look more polished, and all in under a minute.

quickstyle-cuff

Cuff A Pair of Jeans You’ve Never Cuffed Before:

Next time you step into one of your favorite pairs of skinnies, flip the hem up for a change of pace.

Try A Tie:

Sometimes your outfit needs that uptown accessory. Enter: the silk tie.

Add A Bright Hat:

Adding a brightly colored hat will take your look from mundane, to head-turning.

Carry Your Purse As A Clutch:

As seen here on model, Dree Hemingway, wearing your bag as a clutch looks a little more ladydlike than stringing it across your body.

quickstyle-drape

Drape Your Coat:

Wear your coat as a cape (i.e. the fashion pack’s favorite look) on your next evening out.

Add Socks:

Just keep them in the same color family as either your shoes or your pants as Pernille Teisbeck does here.

quickstyle-match

Inject your outfit with a trifecta of color by way of a matching bag, coat, and lip color, as this style maven did to great effect.

quickstyle-scarf

Wear Your Scarf Untied:

Add some drama by letting your long scarf hang over your coat.

Got a Minute? Quick and Style!

The Half-Tuck!

The deliberate half-tuck trend offers a solution to fashion challenges: perhaps you want to show off your waistline to create a more flattering silhouette, or maybe you’d like to display a cool belt or emulate a stylishly disheveled look. It’s a savvy trick that the fashion set, such as Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller and Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet, has recently adopted. There’s an art to this technique, though: in order to avoid looking half-dressed, make sure your top is carelessly tucked into a tailored skirt or pants, resulting in a casually cool outfit.
