Who said basics can’t be glamorous? It’s all in what you do with them. I have three words that will make your basics beautiful – accessories, accessories, accessories! It’s something as simple as a great pair of pumps or an amazing statement necklace that can make an outfit go from drab to fab. I know colour can be intimidating but perhaps pushing yourself to grab that pale pink neck scarf – a la Grace Kelly – will do the trick. When making basics beautiful again, the best thing to do is go as basic as possible. That’s right, I’m talking about something as simple as a plain white t-shirt and that pair of jeans you just can’t live without. Not sure what colours work best? I’ve got you covered. When in doubt, add a little faux animal print to your look. A little can go a long way! Add a touch of leopard to a great shoe, or a touch of snake skin to your handbag.

These basics to beautiful tricks aren’t only for the ladies, it’s just as easy for you men out there. Dress up your jeans and tee with a great pair of loafers or a kick ass sneaker – YES, I said sneakers! This is one of the hottest trends out there right now and a great way to add some colour to your look. Colourful kicks can be paired with anything from a great knit sweater or a good old leather jacket to a basic blazer. Looking good can be both comfortable and chic.
