We’ve all been there. Your clothes and accessories feel repetitive and lackluster, and for the sake of your bank account, overhauling your entire closet isn't an option. Elevating your style doesn’t require making a huge dent in your wallet—despite what the fashion industry and social media may have you thinking. In fact, there are plenty of style hacks and key purchases you can try in order to revitalize your wardrobe. Ahead, we share 7 budget-friendly ways for elevating your wardrobe.

Statement Accessories

Whether you’re into gold or silver jewelry or adore a hair accessory—accessories are a great way to add some flair to your day-to-day outfits. Take a white T-shirt or jumper and introduce some embellishments. It will immediately add a unique elegance or edge to your style with little-to-no effort.

Oversized Silhouettes

Optimize your wardrobe with oversized silhouettes for an effortless touch. This season we are obsessed with the versatility of oversized shirts, but the silhouette applies to anything in your wardrobe. To elevate the look, pair your oversized item with a style more fitted to create the perfect juxtaposition between the two.

Mini, Grab, or Oversized Bags

The focus here is on the range of bags in your wardrobe. Whether it’s a mini, grab, or oversized bag, you have plenty of options to mix it up and play with different ratios and proportions without having to spend some serious dollars.

Co-ord Sets

Apart from the fact that they are so easy to put together in the morning, co-ord sets are perfect additions to the wardrobe that instantly ooze ease and sophistication. If you prefer a knitted set, joggers and sweatshirts, or a blazer and pant combination, having one or two co-ords in your wardrobe are essential.

Classic Blazers

You can never go wrong with blazers. Once you find the one that works with your wardrobe, a good blazer can create the magic style formula. Always opt for high-quality blazers; not only will you get your money’s worth from them, but you will also have them in your wardrobe for years to come.

Quality Belts

A good belt may be the answer to finishing off your outfit. Whether cinched in at the waist or perfectly blended into your trousers or skirt, belts elevate your look to tailored perfection.

Tailored Pieces

One of fashion's best kept secrets is getting your clothes tailored. Since off-the-rack sizes aren't as unique as a person’s body, it can be hard to find an item that fits you in all the right places. Finding the right tailor or seamstress is one way for your clothes to fit perfectly to you. Similarly, opt for tailored pieces that hug and accentuate your body. Once you start tailoring, you won’t go back.
