5 Quick And Easy Ways To Update Your Look For Spring/Summer 15

If your dwelling down under you're already well into your summer, so why not give your wardrobe a quick mid-season update? Northern Hemisphere ladies, with spring just around the corner, there's no need to wait until the sun begins to shine to update your wardrobe into spring mode. Here's five quick, easy and craaaaazily cheap ways to update your look for the Spring/Summer 2015 season. If your climate is still cold, don't fret, just add a coat and go!

1. Metallic Flash Tattoos
If you're like me, tattoos bring a certain synonym to mind: horror. But rest assured, these temporary metallic tattoos are anything but horrific. They inject a little bohemian Balinese luxe into your summer look, and, best of all, there are no needles required! **Round of applause** 

As lashing of these babies fill up accessory and fashion high street stores, they make a great alternative to jewellery to add some sparkle to your favorite swimwear a la Beyonce. Alternatively, layer jewellery over these glitzy patterns: the more the merrier! Now, there's just one question left: gold, silver, or both?

 2. Tie a thick ribbon or fabric belt around your waist
Trends often come from the most unexpected places, this time, it's from the world of martial arts. Simply take your fave silk scarf, belt or even a thick piece of ribbon and tie around your waistline. New York Fashion Week showed this look was the new way to enhance your waistline, as BCBG, Tanya Taylor and Suno all showed themselves to be fans of this Oriental trend. 

Extra note: Tie around an undone vest jacket or trench coat for a brand new top or dress. Ta-da!

3. Wrap & Tuck Your Shirt
If you have an oversized button up shirt, this one is totally free for you! Instead of buttoning up, simply wrap on side of your shirt over the other and top into high waist shorts, trousers or skirts. For smaller shirts, tuck in all the way round. For a true boyfriend fit, wrap and tuck in the front and leave loose in the back.

 4. Fringe It Up
With the re-birth of everything sartorially 70s, comes the fringe. Just one piece with this quirky texture will completely makeover your outfit. If you don't own anything with fringes, why not road-test the trend by cutting fringes into an old top, skirt or dress? But believe me, this is the one trend that I recommend truly investing in: it's here to stay!

 5. Rip It, Rip It Good
Are you loving all of the ripped boyfriend jeans on Pinterest at the moment? Me too! This Spring staple is best paired with leg lengthening nude heels. You can even create your own rips with a cheese grater!

  9. Hello Rachel! I have to say that I really, really enjoy reading your posts. First, you write so well and everything you post about is super interesting. I really liked the idea of the overlapping an oversized button-up shirt, super cool! I also like fringes so I need to look for something with fringes ( I have a little bag and a necklace right now) to wear this season. The metallic tattoos, as a matter of fact I just read a magazine that sported Vanessa Hudgens wearing a bunch of those. Like you, I am not into real tattoos but these temporary ones are chic and I would actually wear them! I am glad you liked my juicing post. I am actually starting my detox tomorrow morning so will see! I also make juice for my better half (have to keep him healthy!) and for my youngest daughter too. Have a great weekend sweet girl. Blessings to you always! XOXO, Jeannette
