HOW TO REFRESH YOUR WARDROBEFashion
20 November 2018
Every now and then our wardrobe needs a bit of a shake-up, a refresh, but we don’t always have the budget to give it a complete overhaul.
But add a few modern accessories, and you can update your look in a much more affordable way.
Here are just a few ways you can update your everyday style, making it feel more modern, with some key accessories.
1 | WEAR AN UNEXPECTED SHOE
Traditionally, most people would pair a feminine shoe (like a heel, or a ballet flat) with a dress, but why not add a little more edge by adding a more on-trend shoe?
An ankle boot or a leather trainer can definitely give your frock a more modern spin.

2 | LOAFERS ARE THE NEW BALLET FLATS
Love a flat shoe? Then make sure you add a pair of loafers or two to your wardrobe.
They look great with jeans and pants, but can also be worn with a dress to give it a more updated, on trend appeal.
