Little Fashion Touches That Make Your Look More Memorable

 Are you someone who takes pride in the way they look? Do you like people taking notice of what you're wearing and complimenting you on your fashion choices? Or maybe you've been thinking that you want to update your look and wear more memorable outfits. When you dress a certain way, people often remember you for what you're wearing. It can be good in social contexts and even at work, and it doesn't require you to dress in a whacky or outlandish way. Making your outfits more memorable could involve a few small touches that uplift what you're wearing and help you to create a signature look.

Belts (and Buckles)

A belt can be the perfect item to add to any outfit. They might technically be made for holding up your pants, but they're also ideal for creating more shape at your waist. Belts come in all kinds of designs and materials, from simple but sophisticated leather belts to statement belts in different colors. You can use a belt through the loops on your jeans, pants, shorts, or skirt, but a lot of women wear a belt around their waist instead. It adds something extra to your outfit, and you can also use it to cinch in your outfit if you're wearing layers or a loose top or dress. If you really want to make a statement with your belt, wear one with an interesting buckle.


Cuffed Pants and Sleeves

Cuffing the legs of your pants or your sleeves is a tiny thing that you can do to make your outfit more refined. It's not much, and it's easy to do, but it immediately gives your outfit something extra. All you need to do is fold up the material a couple of times, and your outfit will look trendier than before. If you're wearing jeans with more of a full or flared style, it can work better if you roll up the cuffs instead of folding. This is a great way to draw more attention to your shoes too.


Show Off Your Socks

You might not give a lot of thought to your socks, especially if they're hidden all the time. But if you think about them a bit more, you might be more careful about which ones you choose. Socks might be a practical accessory, but there's no rule saying that you have to hide them. Giving a little flash of your socks could make your outfit look more fun or just add a little color. You could show your socks by rolling up your pants or having them peak out over the top of your shoes or boots. Whether you choose something colorful or even a fun pattern, you can make more of your socks.

Hair Accessories

Spending a little extra time on your hair can be a fun way to make your look more memorable too. But even if you don't want to spend a long time styling your hair, you can add a little something to your look with the right hair accessories. A lot of adult women don't really wear hair accessories, but there are plenty of cute clips, ties, and other accessories that look good and are still grown-up and sophisticated. Or you might only wear hair accessories if you're getting dressed up, but you can wear them with your everyday outfits too.


Brooches and Pins

A brooch or pin is a cute accessory to add to your outfits. They come in so many different designs and sizes that you could wear a single, understated pin, a collection of small pins, or one large brooch that draws attention. You can find out some lapel pin options from this guide from thepinfactory.com.au, which shows you some styles and some ways to wear them. Owning a collection of fun pins is a great way to always have something to add to your outfit. Just add a pin to your jacket or coat, or your top or dress. You can also use one to hold a scarf or shawl together.


Statement Jewelry

Adding jewelry to your outfit is a simple, and maybe a little obvious, way to spruce up your outfit. But if you really want to stand out, you can look for unique, statement pieces that give your look some character. You might choose something people will remember you for, such as often wearing a certain motif or a particular gemstone. Or you could wear the same jewelry regularly so that people will recognize it and associate you with it.


Try a French Tuck

An easy way to give your outfit more shape is to use a French tuck when you're wearing separates. All you have to do is tuck your top into the front of your pants (or skirt), and it helps to create more shape. It works best with a top that has some drape to it. It's a good way to show off a belt that you're wearing too, especially if you're wearing a statement belt buckle that you think is deserving of a little more attention.

Add a Hat

Not everyone is a hat person. Some people like them, while others prefer not to have anything on their head at all. Or maybe you think that you don't really suit hats. But if you're willing to explore how a hat might lift up your outfits, getting a couple of options to start with could be a good idea. You can wear different kinds of hats in different situations, from woolen hats in winter to sun hats or just hats that are there for some added style.


DIY Some Details

If you feel like getting crafty with a little bit of DIY, you could add some details to your clothes. Try a little bit of embroidery and add some designs to some of your garments. Or have a go at making your own jewelry or other accessories to add something unique to your look.


Make your look more memorable, and you could soon have people noticing you for the fashion choices that you make.
