There are a lot of dilemmas that a girl experiences when putting together an outfit. From the all-time favorite 'I have nothing to wear!' to 'which pair of shoes looks best with this jeans?', the list is endless. One common fashion predicament is wondering how to make an outfit look fun and trendy without going over the top.
While playing with the different trends is always fun, rocking too many in one outfit is a major fashion faux pas. So to make sure that you put together outfits that are nothing short of fun and chic, we're sharing with you seven ways on how you can easily spice up your OOTD without going to extremes!
1. Choose fun accessories to complete your outfit for the day.

Your accessories can easily take your look from normal to exceptional in a snap. While sleek gold and silver accessories never fail to add an extra dose of sophistication to any look, opt for fun accessories—like boho chic fringe earrings or a fun pom-pom choker—for a fashionable outfit with just the right amount of quirk.
2. Go embroidered!

Embroidery may have a vintage feel to it, but you can be sure that it never looks boring and old fashion at all. In fact, pieces with embroidered details add instant femininity. Go for an embroidered jacket for a cool casual look or a pair of embroidered denim jeans for some trendy bottoms.
3. Bright hues is the way to go.

A lot of girls stick to neutral colors like black, white, camels, and grays when dressing up for a sleek and chic look for the day. But you can up the ante of your fashion game by adding accessories in vibrant hues for a quick splash of color.
4. Look for textured pieces.

There's nothing new with a white button-down shirt, but when you choose one in rich velvet or smooth silk, then it instantly changes the ball game of your entire outfit!
5. Inject an unexpected twist.

Mix feminine pieces with an edgy element—like a summer dress paired with tough denim jacket; or a delicate lace bra underneath a rocker chic muscle tee. Keep your outfit fun, stylish, and unpredictable!

Layering doesn't only increase your wardrobe options by tenfold, it also allows you to create new fashion formulas! So when you're running low on outfit ideas, think outside the box and give layering a go!
7. Up your denim game.

Denim jeans are a classic, and upping your denim game is the easiest and safest way to spice up your OOTD. Give your go-to pair of skinny blue jeans a rest and opt for something flared, patched, or frayed for a change.
