6 Creative Ways to Take Your Outfits to the Next Level

Do you ever wonder how those Pinterest models look like a million bucks with just a bodycon dress and long coat? Well, it has a lot to do with how they accessorize and layer up rather than the price tag of their outfits. Like luxury clothing, basic or essentials never go out of style either.


Want to learn useful tips to turn your basic attire into a chic outfit? Continue reading and open your Pinterest app because we're about to help you create a mood board.


Mixing Textures and Colours

Play with prints, textures, and colours to mix and match and create a statement outfit. Look for different colour outfits in your closet and put different colours together, such as neon orange and forest green, lilac, and yellow, to find one that catches your eye.


Make sure to keep one element simple, such as pairing solid-coloured sweatpants with a graphic shirt, to balance out the appearance. You can search "print mixing fashion," "colour blocking outfits," and "bold colour combinations" on Pinterest to find some inspiration.

Layer Up

When in doubt, layer up! Layering is an excellent method to add depth and interest to a look. Layering an oversized flannel shirt over a white top can help you create a cute and comfortable outfit. Moreover, layering accessories like necklaces or bracelets can also help create a trendy look. Use phrases like "layering clothing," "jacket outfit ideas," and "how to layer accessories" on Pinterest to get an idea.

Play with Proportions

Playing with proportions is an excellent technique for creating an eye-catching ensemble. Pair a fitted turtle neck with wide leg pants or skin-tight jeans with a baggy top. You can find many more ideas by searching "oversized outfit ideas," "asymmetrical outfits," and "crop top and high-waisted pants" on Pinterest. You can also play with lengths by wearing a crop top with high-waisted jeans or a midi skirt with ankle boots.


Accessories are a great way to jazz up your look. Try a statement necklace, dramatic earrings, or a statement bag. Hats, scarves, and belts are other fun accessories to experiment with. Find more ideas by checking "statement jewelry," "bold bags," and "unique hats" on Pinterest.



Customizing outfits can help you create a more personal and comfortable style. You can try DIY customizing or get a professional designer to customize it. If you want to shop custom African dresses online, we can create one that fits your requirements and style.


Your shoes, heel, or flats can make or break your outfit. When it comes to investing in your wardrobe, don't hesitate to invest in statement shoes. Pair a basic ensemble with eye-catching sneakers or a plain dress with red bottoms, and you'll look like a fashion icon. You can also browse "chunky sandals" and "ankle boots outfits" for more ideas.
