White shirts are easy and can be elegant when worn with a
velvet or wool vest or casual with a denim jacket. You can add a plain belt or
scarf (or both) to an oversized, long-sleeved button-down collar shirt and be
office ready in a few minutes. Switch to a glitzy scarf and shiny belt and you
can be party ready in minutes. If scarves aren’t your style, some big jewelry in gold or silver can be an elegant option.
Speaking of denim jackets . . . they can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. For lunch with the girls, a turtle neck in one of your signature colors and a scarf take a boring jacket to full-scale style in moments. Denim can also go elegant when worn over a basic shell with your favorite necklace and earrings. If you want to sparkle in your denim, wear a shell with some threads that glisten woven into the fabric or sequins under your jacket.
Take a look at your favorites. Can you think of a creative way to make an older piece of clothing look and feel new? It could be the best and least expensive gift you give this holiday season.
