LOOKING GOOD, GIRL


It doesn’t matter if you’re Oprah, the Duchess of Cambridge, Gigi Hadid or Sarah Jessica Parker, it’s inevitable that there will be days where you feel like you’re juggling more than you can handle. You stand in front of your closet wanting to wear something that makes you look and feel amazing but you just can't muster the ability to pull something together.  We’ve been there... but it’s so much easier to get back on track when you have a few nifty tricks tucked up your sleeves.

These are our tried and true tricks for when you’re standing in front of your wardrobe on a Monday morning (well, any morning really) with absolutely no clue what to wear but you want to nail it. And nail it good.

A structured blazer can instantly pull a whole outfit together. There’s something about the cut and collar of this piece that makes you look and feel like you can take on the world. Even if you’re wearing boyfriend jeans and sneakers, the blazer takes your outfit to a whole other level. This is a 24/7 trick - from weekend to the office to dinner and drinks.  

The colour red symbolises power, determination and passion so to knock it out of the park, add a red lip to your outfit to show ‘em who’s boss. No one is going to argue with a gal wearing a killer red lip. It tells people you know how to get stuff done all while looking uber glamorous.

We’re not sure about you but as soon as we do something to our hair we immediately feel like we can achieve so much in our day! Moving house all weekend? Do your hair in a high topknot and you’ll feel like a million bucks! Going to a spin class? Braids are the way to go. Big meeting? Run a GHD through your locks and you’ll have the confidence to go in there and nail it.

When in doubt, wear black. It’s a universally flattering colour and it’s one of those shades where no one bats an eyelid if you wear it head to toe. Plus the best part about black is that you don't need to spend a fortune because it just looks expensive.

We love statement earrings at SWIISH! They’re the perfect accessory to a simple and chic outfit. Even a pair of jeans, striped tee and loafers is instantly elevated with a pair of statement earrings. Choose a bold and bright colour to add an extra bit of glam.

Is it just us or does putting on a pair of killer pumps make you feel on top of the world? We think it’s because we used to sneak into our mum’s wardrobe when we were little to try on all her shoes. It used to make us feel sooo grown up and we guess it still does because nothing stops us when we’re wearing stilettos.

A $15 manicure can go a long way in the art of looking put together. It’s amazing how a coat of Bubble Bath, Big Apple Red or our personal fave, Alpine Snow, can transform an outfit. Although it’s subtle, it can make a big difference in how we look and feel.
