Sick of your day-to-day outfits? You don't need a whole new wardrobe—the most boring looks can be transformed with the help of a few key pieces. Follow our advice for the perfect wardrobe update using your favourite affordable accessories!

Everyone wants to look their best for less, and we've got all the answers! Check out all 10 tips:


  • Idea 1: Choose versatile pieces that work with multiple outfits. Those chic studs work well in the office and add a splash of glamour while running errands.

  • Idea 2: Look for neutral colours that pair well with your style. A classic clear-stone silver pair of earrings or a black wrap bracelet work well with everything.
  • Idea 3: Add a splash of colour with an affordable statement necklace. Nothing says luxurious more than an exquisite piece that draws all attention on you and your impeccable style.
  • Idea 4: Statement Rings are all the rage. Show off your fashion sense with an eye-catching sparkler on your right hand.
  • Idea 5: Be a smokeshow in red with these sultry earrings  that pair will with casual and classy outfits alike!
  • Idea 6: Luscious Layers speak volumes about your style. Show off your feminine side with a trendy layered-look statement piece that showcases your gorgeous neckline. 

  • Idea 7: Go Big City Glam in this eye-catching necklace. Show off your inner chic city-girl and glam it up day or night!

  • Idea 8: Statement earrings are a great way to dress up a casual outfit. They draw attention to your face and add sparkle. Regardless of your colour choice or earring size, a statement earring can always add drama to an outfit and add that polished look that will keep all eyes on you.
  • Idea 9: Stay on trend with a long necklace. Long necklaces help focus the eye in a vertical direction--making you look taller and leaner! 
  • Idea 10:  The more basic the outfit, the bolder your accessories can be. Amazing outfits are created when everything is in balance. A plain solid-colour top with a plain pair of pants or jeans can be the chic-est outfit when paired with the right accessories. Try mixing it up with some bangles, a cocktail-style ring, and a long or statement necklace. You can really add some bling and show off your personality by adding over-the-top glamour to your everyday basics. Glitzy and gorgeous--not just for evening-wear anymore! Think big, bold and beautiful!
