Stack Your Bracelets
Ever since The Man Repeller, née Leandra Medine, coined (and trademarked!) the term "arm party " in 2011, the bracelet pile has been sartorially smart editors, bloggers and models' go-way method of making a good outfit better. For inspiration on getting it right, I suggest starting with the original arm party host herself, whose bangle stacks are some of the best out there. Click through to shop the look now.
Match Your Hat
Contrasting dresses with baseball caps has been a thing for a few seasons now, but the whole sporty/girly formula is starting to feel a little predictable. Lately, the street style set has been gravitating toward hats with a little more polish, especially if the headwear matches the rest of their outfit. Click through to shop the look now.
Don't Discount Lipstick
Never underestimate the power of a bold lip—the right shade provides the impact of a wild print or daring silhouette. A bright pout is also helpful in pulling together an outfit of all neutrals; it provides just enough color without ruining the look's simplicity. Click through to shop the look now.
Belt Your Outer Layer
A waist-accentuating belt over a blazer, sweater or coat gives the impression that a piece is tailored to your shape—even if it's two sizes too big. What's more, it's a sneaky way to squeeze multiple outfits out of one piece. Click through to shop the look now.
Ditch the It-Bag
Although the biggest street style starts carry designer bags, vintage bags and small label indie bags, they never carry the same generic It-Bag as everyone else. Perhaps they might carry something similar, by the same label, but it will have something different about it, like a punchy color or animal skin finish. Click through to shop the look now.
