5 Wardrobe Staples That Can Make Any Outfit Pop

By: Betty Downs

Trends come and go rather quickly, and unless you have a Kardashian credit card, it can be difficult to shop every time something new is featured in Vogue. However, there are a few items of clothing that will never go out of style, making life (and saving money) far easier. Every fashionista should have wardrobe essentials, because not only are they easy to throw on, but they automatically make an outfit pop!

1. A Bold Shoe

Just as a piece of outerwear would, a statement shoe can make an entire outfit. An exciting heel not only adds height, but an amazing feel to an outfit as well, giving one a boost of confidence. After all, looking better equals feeling better, right?

2. A Statement Jacket
A bold jacket can make any outfit stand out from the crowd. For example, an all-black ensemble can look rather simple, but add a leopard coat and suddenly you've got a look that can turn heads. Jackets are a great way of adding some color into an outfit, so investing in a bright piece of outerwear is definitely something to look into. 

3. An Exciting Hat
To our delight, hats becoming more trendy recently means there have been so many more available to buy. From baker boys and berets, there is a hat for every occasion; even a Von Dutch trucker hat if you're wanting to go for that 2006 Paris Hilton kind of look. 

4. Eye-Catching Sunglasses
A pair of sunglasses really does have the power to complete a look. Whether they are black, bright red or heart shaped à la Lolita, there are so many different shapes and sizes of sunglasses which all add something to an outfit. For example, pair of cat eye sunglasses give a look a touch of elegance - very Audrey Hepburn. 

5. Fun Jewelry 
Maximalism is the new minimalism. After all, who would want to wear less, when you can wear more? When it comes to jewelry, there is no such thing as too much. Here's a tip to embrace this trend: before you leave the house, look in the mirror and put something else on. An otherwise simple outfit can really stand out from the crowd with a few layered necklaces or statement earrings.
