4 Tips to Dress Up a Dull Outfit

April 10, 2021

No matter what your favorite fashion picks are for the rest of the year, the last thing you want is to go out (or even just hang around at home) wearing something that doesn’t inspire excitement or show off your personality.

But, everyone has a few outfits in their wardrobe that aren’t their favorite, but this doesn’t mean they should be resigned to the back of the closet forever. Instead, you can find ways to dress them up and even give them a brand new lease of life. 

 

Add Some Layers 

A crucial element of making any item in your wardrobe work for you is learning to mix and match. This gives you the chance to create a more versatile and functional wardrobe that means you’ll have an outfit for any occasion, even if it doesn’t feel like that at first. Even the dullest, most uninspiring clothes can feel brand new with the right mixing and matching, so pick your base layers and add bolder, more dynamic, and daring items on top. These will distract from the simpler clothes while still making sure the whole outfit looks good. 

 

Give It Some Sparkle

Accessories like earrings, necklaces, or even the best body jewelry found here can transform a simple outfit into one that will get people talking for all of the right reasons. Like adding layers, these sparkly accessories can draw attention away from the boring parts of the outfit and create focal points that help you stand out from a crowd, even if you’ve just thrown a simple outfit together to meet up with friends. 

 

A Splash Of Color 

Picking the right colors to go with your otherwise dull outfit can drastically improve your mood, and this could be the answer to making sure your clothes look good, bright, and no matter how you dress.

With these colors, you’ll feel happier, and this will directly impact how your outfit is perceived. If you want to brighten your day (as well as everyone else’s) consider going for summery colors that fit with the season, without going too overboard that you look like you fell headfirst into a bag of Skittles and back out again. 

 

Get Creative 

Sometimes, it’s not about what you wear, but rather how you wear it. Creativity in fashion is nothing new, and there are a multitude of ways that you can enhance your style and dress up dull clothes even without doing anything too out there.

The more creative you get with outfit combinations, colors, and accessories (and even bring back some older styles to see how they work), the more engaging your clothes will look. This is as true for a simple black t-shirt as it is for a beige blouse. Wearing it the right way does the hard work for you. 

 

Dressing Up 

Everyone loves to dress up, whether for a big party or occasion or just because they feel like treating themselves. While you might have a bunch of cute and exciting party outfits, you shouldn’t forget about those other items that have the potential to be great as long as you know how to make them look good for any event.
