10 Fashion Hacks to Immediately Boost Your Style Game
And it all starts at the SM City North EDSA Great Northern Sale.
(SPOT.ph) We’re already one month deep into 2016, and you’ve probably got your new year’s resolutions down pat by now. New year, new prospects, new challenges, new opportunities—how about a whole new look to go with it? Take note of these style hacks to make your shopping experience much easier:
1. Play up your pastels.
Now is the perfect time to go all-out on dainty hues, with Pantone naming ultra-feminine rose quartz and serenity as the colors of the year. Hesitant to pull off a pastel frock? Slowly ease into the trend by way of candy-colored accessories like a mint green necklace and baby blue sandals.
2. Invest in classic shoes.
Nude pointy pumps are a celeb favorite for two good reasons: They’re extremely flattering and they go with everything in your closet. Get a pair in a hue close to your skin tone to achieve the illusion of extra long gams.
3. Wear a single statement piece...
Spice up your all-neutral wardrobe with some prints! Match printed trousers with a crisp white button-down or trade your go-to black ballet flats for a sweet floral pair for an instant style boost.

4. Or mix your prints fearlessly!
You know what goes really well with that striped shirt you wear every other week? A colorful floral skirt. It’s a style match made in heaven.
5. Carry a fab bag.
A chic bag can do wonders for your overall look. A neutral-colored tote with classic embellishments can be paired with any outfit, while a purse in a notice-me hue adds character to your basic shirt-jeans-flats combo.
6. Mind the fit.
Your P5,000 dress can easily look like a cheap hot mess if it’s in the wrong size. In the same way, a P250 find can look like a good bargain if it falls on you perfectly. Make sure everything you buy fits and flatters your body, and that they’ll only need minimum alterations if necessary.
A statement piece of jewelry is an easy way to make your outfit more interesting and to draw attention to the parts you want to emphasize. Show off your pretty mani with a cocktail ring, or ensure that all eyes will be on your face with a luxe pair of dangling earrings. Not fond of chunky bling? Layer your dainty jewelry for an effortlessly chic look.

8. Versatility is a must.
Before blowing your hard-earned cash on that pretty dress, ask yourself: “Can I style this in multiple ways?” If the frock you’re eyeing can take you from day to night, from the boardroom to the bar to a garden wedding, you’ve found yourself a keeper.
9. Embrace color.
Sure, head-to-toe black is a failsafe option, but come on, where’s the fun in that? Wearing a bright hue never hurt anyone, and it’s a guaranteed mood booster.
10. Comfort still rules.
Slay even during your off days with chic pieces that don’t compromise style for comfort. Breezy tops and comfy slides translate to an effortless weekend look that’s perfect for our tropical climate.
