    Easy change-ups for your wardrobe

    Here are some staple items that can add a bold new look to your wardrobe without breaking the bank:


    A chunky necklace, a hint of turquoise or a pair of feather earrings can make an outfit. Accessories are one of the cheapest ways to change your style up.

    Black leather bracelets and earrings can add edge to your style, while a gold watch and stud earrings can add a stylish and professional feel. Charming Charlie in the Tucson Mall is always a great place to look; it is color-coordinated, abundant in choices and best of all, affordable.

    Nude heels

    Heels with a nude hue are making a comeback, though I am not sure where they went. If you are looking to add more professionalism to your wardrobe, nude heels are a must-have. If you choose a pair that is low (only a couple inches), they can be worn for work, meetings, school or a dressy dinner with friends. The best part? They match everything. Try Steve Madden for a comfortable pair that isn’t too tall.

    Colored hobo bag

    Picture your favorite pair of comfy jeans and a plain white V-neck or a simple black dress. Boring right? Now picture it with a turquoise tote bag or a purple purse to make the outfit pop. Purses are so easy to overlook when putting together an ensemble, but they can be an inexpensive way to add flair. Oversized hobo bags for school or work tend to work best because they hold everything easily. Check out Francesca’s Collections for cute, affordable bags.

    Tips for sticking to it

    In order to capture the style that you are really looking for, research it. Find the someone whose style is similar to what you are looking for and pick out the pieces that make their style unique. Once you know what you want, try shopping at different stores. It is easy to get into a rut when you shop only at Forever 21 and H&M. Try shops at La Encantada or vintage shops on Fourth Avenue to change it up. Even University Boulevard has a bevy of different shops you can browse to add new flair to your old favorites. Finally, when you find your pieces, remember to be confident. When you feel good in an outfit, it makes it look even better on you.

    Happy shopping!
