Are you looking for ways to make your outfit stand out? It’s something that can be as simple as knowing your skincare or pairing the right accessories. Most people think that all they need is a statement top, but there are so many other ways to make your outfit pop. These simple additions will ensure that you’re always looking fresh, from adding a belt, shoes, or jacket to adding some bling.


There’s nothing wrong with matching either. Adding a second colour to your outfit is one of the a great ways to make your outfit stand out and creates some visual interest. Use this principle on any item in your wardrobe: try different combinations of shoes or bags to create new looks using things you already own. Remember that the point is to add some colour and interest, not take away from your outfit or look like a clown.

If you love wearing monochromatic looks but want something fun in your wardrobe, try making one of these outfits using two different colours together. First, create a similar look by thinking about the colours of your outfit in terms of warm and cool tones, then choose two complementary colours from either side to make this monochromatic colour scheme. It is perfect for colder months!


Wear different accessories, such as necklaces and earrings, to draw attention to parts of your face that you want people to notice. For example, if you have a great smile or adorable dimples on your cheeks, wear several dangly earrings with unique features like sea creatures from or long chains so they will frame those features. Alternatively, some women prefer to draw attention to the neckline with a choker necklace or long pendant. You can also choose a brightly coloured lipstick that you know is going to stand out. Accessories are a great way to highlight your favourite features, so don’t hesitate to play up the ones you love most.


Not only will overdone makeup look too heavy for the office, but you risk clashing with an outfit that is either too neutral or simply bolder than what you expect. A great way to make your outfit stand out is by simply sporting a bold lip. If you find yourself in this predicament, choose an understated eyeliner and mascara look, which you can easily dress up or down depending on what the occasion calls for. However, as mentioned before, too much makeup has the potential of looking unprofessional, so don’t overdo it. 


If you have naturally oily skin, opt for something that works to absorb the excess oil. If your skin is very dry, do not wear heavy makeup as this will only make your complexion appear even drier. In addition, avoid moisturizers with SPF as they can cause breakouts in acne-prone skin.

If you have acne-prone skin, it’s best to use makeup products with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, which will help fight breakouts and leave your complexion looking cleaner. Considering your skin type is essential when choosing the right makeup for you.

If your skin has a lot of redness, whether from acne or other factors, consider using products with yellow undertones as they will combat any redness in the face. If you have sensitive skin, the best way to avoid irritation is by using makeup with natural ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil.

You can do so many things with your wardrobe to make it stand out. You need to know what you are doing and how best to go about it. The above tips should be a helpful starting point for anyone looking to change their style or who wants some inspiration.
