Everyday style tips

Gabriella Cuesta, Staff Writer

A new year often means a fresh start and, while revamping a house or making resolutions takes priority for many students, styling tips can help bring plain wardrobes into the New Year. The fashion world contains a laundry list of do’s and don’ts, but it can get hard to keep track of them all. To spend and budget better and also have more wardrobe variety, follow these tips for a killer look.

1. Accessorize outfits with a nice belt to jazz up the look

2. Be careful when washing clothes to read the label

3. Make a shopping list of clothing needs, not wants

4. For jeans, get the smaller size; they tend to stretch out

5. Button-ups look good on both guys and girls

6. Layering necklaces achieves a trendy new look

7. Feel the fabric before buying. Not being careful may lead to rips or tears later on

8. Keep an open mind to new ideas

9. Jazz up a simple outfit with a pair of shoes that stand out

10. Mix up different prints

It can be hard to find the best places to get clothes and accessories at decent prices. Forever 21, Cotton On, H&M, Polo and Steps are affordable enough for virtually any price range. A great outfit includes great accessories that can make it stand out. Expensive things are great every once in a while, but with the right guidance anyone can look like a million bucks on a high school budget.
