From your big statement necklaces to your chunky bangles and bling rings you’ll be able to jazz up any outfit. You can also try adding a scarf for that extra bit of colour. Remember, brighter the better. It takes peoples eyes away from your outfit so they can focus on your glitzy jewellery.

2. Heels Are A Girl’s Best Friend

Your casual shoulder bags and tote bags are perfect for long weekends and shopping trips but for a night out then cheap clutch bags are the one! They’re small, classy and sophisticated so are great for dressing up an outfit.

4. Hair and Beauty

It doesn’t always have to be about what you wear but how you look. By spending a bit of time doing your hair and make-up it can be a great way to look dressier. Even just adding that extra special bit of red lipstick and eyeliner could really help to make you look dressier.

5. Swap Cardigans For A Blazer
