Use Accessories to Your Advantage
You don’t have to purchase a new wardrobe to make others think you’re current with today’s fashion trends. By simply updating a handbag, you can appear chic and stylish. If you typically wear cloth, switch to leather. If you enjoy symmetric shapes, switch your purse with a faux snakeskin clutch. You can also accessorize with something more dramatic by pairing an outfit with a chunky necklace and drop earrings.
Update Your Manicure
Your finger and toe nails may seem like insignificant areas of the body, but they can speak volumes to those around you. Who wants to walk around with nails bitten down to the quick? If you’ve always wished for long nails, you may want to opt for the gel or acrylic variety. If your nails are in good shape, you can file the tips from square to oval.

For special occasions and holidays, your stylist may be able to top your nails with a holiday design such as trees, hearts, flowers or patriotic flags.
Freshen Up your Skin
The weather can take a toll on your skin and leave it dry, flaking and damaged. You can begin your way to a flawless look by first adopting a healthy skin regimen. This includes cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing your skin before you put your makeup on. Foundation is another recommended beauty tip that can help freshen your appearance. While some makeups are applied using your fingertips, makeup sponges can help you achieve a flawless complexion. Bronzers are a safer option for when you want to achieve a tan without the risk of sun damage. If you’re looking to hide fine lines and wrinkles, a skin luminizer works best to give your skin a more youthful and radiant appearance.
Rediscover Your Wardrobe
If your closet is bursting at the seams, it’s time for you to rediscover the treasures that are buried within. You can begin by weeding through your clothes and finding the items that you haven’t worn in the past year and don’t want to wear in the future. If there are skirts, tops, blouses and suits that you’ve forgotten about, place them in the front where you can rediscover the classic items. This is also the ideal time to purchase a few pieces that will mesh with the others. You may be able to create a whole new look by just adding a blouse or vest to your favorite skirts or slacks.
Despite what many believe, you don’t have to go broke to revamp your appearance. You also don’t have to drastically change your hair and makeup to appear stylish. With the above 6 subtle changes, you’ll be able to physically and mentally reinvent your appearance.
