These tips have helped me get out of my fashion rut and made getting dress more fun again!! So if you are looking for easy ways to step up your style game, then read on!!!!
1. The first tip on how to make your outfits more stylish is mix prints!! Mixing prints is an easy way to add interest to your outfit and add more style. Mixing prints can seem intimidating or daunting, but I wrote a whole blog post: how to mix prints for beginners that is an easy guide on how to do it. In this picture, I decided to mix leopard print and stripes!

2. Next tip to making your outfits more stylish is incorporate a statement piece!! A statement piece should be something that is unique, bold or eye-catching and is a great conversation starter. Depending on your style it could be a pair of shoes, jewelry or a handbag. By adding a statement piece to your look, it will instantly elevate your outfit, making it more stylish. Here I actually have 2 statement pieces going on. My bold and thick vertical stripe pants and bright purple pumps are the statement makers in this look!

3. Last but, not least add a layer!! Instead of opting for jeans and a plain t-shirt and leave our outfit like that, add another layering piece like a nice structured jacket (one of my favorites), a vest, cardigan etc. Adding a third outer layer will pull your look together and add another element and depth to your look, making your outfit more stylish. In this outfit, I could have just wore all black from head to toe and leave at that, BORING!!!! I added my favorite blazer and… Voila, a chic and stylish outfit.
