Turning Casual Into Chic

Tribal Necklace - Born Pretty* $5.99
Hey everyone! Today I wanted to show you how you can jazz up the most simple outfit in the entire world and still look glamorous! I literally rolled out of bed, threw a few things on and got compliments on my outfit even though it was so brainless!

So I just wanted to show you how easy it is to jazz up an outfit just by accessorizing! And when I say accessorizing I don't mean thousands of bracelets or rings and decking yourself out head to toe in jewelry.

So here is the completed outfit, which I think looks pretty chic. Casual, but super put together. But when you really think about it all it is, is a plain white T-Shirt and a pair of jeans!

To jazz up this super basic combo that EVERYONE has lurking in their closet, I just added a cute Tribal style chunky necklace that was super inexpensive from Born Pretty (and there's even  a coupon code on the banner in the sidebar!), and some cute gladiator sandals that I found at Deichmann (not sure if they have them in every country) but these are such basic gladiator style sandals I'm sure you can find them anywhere. 

The key is to have a sandal that comes up your ankle so you don't look like you're walking around in flip flops (even though I am a strong lover of flip flops) and a chunky necklace to make the main focus of the outfit. This way it takes the attention away from the simple outfit you're wearing and it looks like you did it on purpose to make the pieces stand out.

I swept my bedhead back with a side braid and used a bit of hair product that I showed in my previous post to smooth it out, again making it look like the focus was on the necklace.

See how simple it is? Doing this can change up any outfit instantly and take any day from "Oh I have nothing to wear!" to a super chic but comfy and quick to be out the door day! This look literally took me about five minutes, and then another ten to do my makeup!

Do you have any secret weapon tips like this?
