Pile on white accessories.
Remember when trends used to come and go quicker than a New York City bus? Well, white accessories have been a popular choice for quite some time and they aren't going anywhere just yet. Follow Gigi Hadid's lead and double up on matching boots and sunglasses.
Master the art of layering.
I get it. Layering can be tricky. But Kelly Rowland showed us an easy way to take a sleeveless sweater dress into the winter with a turtleneck. The prints might clash, but the coordinating colors flawlessly pull the two pieces together.
Don't be afraid of statement pieces.
Having trouble deciding between a statement necklace or statement shoes? Mindy Kaling proved that you don't have to choose one or other in a Jacob & Co. necklace and fucshia heels. Whip out both for instant outfit success.
Add a statement belt.
Bella Hadid showed us how to turn an average white sweater into a photo-worthy moment by sprucing up her look with a gold belt. Of course, it doesn't hurt if you happen to have a Chanel one laying around. But these affordable alternatives here and here are just as good.
Go matchy match with your shoes.
Long gone are the days when matching head-to-toe was a no-no. Adding a bright pair of heels that coordinates with your sweater dress will give an instant street-style star oomph — like Karlie Kloss in her marigold outfit.
