Simple Ways to Spice Up Your Summer Outfits

For many of us, changing up our style is not something that comes easily or naturally. We like to stick with what we know because that’s what’s comfortable. However, change does not always have to be a bad word and should instead be something that we welcome with open arms. So, here are some of the simplest ways that you can spice up your style, without having to get a whole new wardrobe.


When people speak about clashing, it is commonly referred to as something that only the brave do. You may look at someone wearing stripes and spots and think to yourself that it looks a little strange. We are not talking about clashing to this extreme. Instead, we mean clashing your colours. It can be something simple like wearing a peach coloured top with some hot pink trousers. It sounds like a mess but in reality it has the potential to be a great outfit.

If you want to opt for something a little more subtle, you can always look for less out there clashes. This could be as easy as wearing a black blazer over blue trousers. This is a more subtle clash and one that is quite common but looks amazing.


One of the easiest ways to add that extra something to your style is to add some accessories. This can be anything from a bracelet or a pair of earrings to something a bit more out there like a few necklaces or some face gems. If you want something that is simple but elegant then you should look no further than Opals. These beautiful stones can go with any outfit and OpalsAustralia have a stunning collection for you to browse and choose from.

If you’re looking for something that is a tad more in your face, you can consider being more adventurous with your makeup and using face gems to complete the look. Or, you can always go a little heavier on the jewellery and wear a few rings, a statement pair of earrings and more than one necklace.

Bright Is Beautiful

Some people stick with the same old colours such as blacks and greys in their day to day outfits. It may be because black is slimming and people like the way it looks on them. Or, it could simply be that they lack the confidence to wear those bold yellows and greens. Brightening up your wardrobe is an easy way to make your outfit stand out a little more. Adding a yellow sundress or a red blazer to your wardrobe will certainly catch people’s attention when you are walking past in the summer months.

Or, if you would feel more comfortable you can always buy some different coloured trousers instead of dresses or tops. With the variety that’s out there today, you are guaranteed to find something a little brighter than usual that will suit you. This could be something as small as a brighter pair of blue jeans than you would normally wear or it could be some striped trousers that you wouldn’t normally go for.

We hope that these ideas help you see that there are some very simple ways to add that something extra to your outfits during the summer.
