Get Some Funk in Your Step

Five things you can do in five minutes (each) to update your look.

1) Change the way your hair is parted
2) Put on lipstick
3) add a belt (not for babydoll styles) or a simple ribbon tied around the waist.
4) change your earrings
5) Minimalism and layering: Try removing any unnecessary layers for a minimalist look or try adding another layer (hosiery etc) if your look is too plain.

Some interesting colour ideas and how you can use them in your wardrobe

One Fluorescent colour matched with  whites, creams, greys and pastels.

Songs to put some funk in your step(and your ears):
1) Hang me up to dry - Cold War Kids
2) Do Wah Do - Kate Nash
3) Juice box - The strokes
4) Zero - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
5) Kiss with a fist- Florence and the machine

Try something new:
-Put Mascara on your lower lash line (only). You can enhance the effect by using light eyeshadow underneath and blending  into natural skin tone.
-Wear a long-sleeved  blouse as a blazer. Chiffon ones work well in warmer weather and thicker ones work well in autumn.
-Wear a ribbon as a necklace. like marie antoinette did.
-Lace ankle socks with heals
