9 Stress-Saving Garments That Will Make Your Life So Much Easier (PHOTOS)

When a season draws to a close, you're usually left staring into your closet, uninspired and unable to dream up exciting new style combinations. Whether your clothes feel tired, or you're just sick of that plain pencil-skirt-and-oxford-shirt combo, there is no need to get worked up. There are some quick and easy ways you can update your wardrobe with just a few key pieces. These nine stress-saving garments can jazz up any look (old jeans and white T-shirt included):

  1. A statement necklace. A little bling takes a top from blah to brilliant.

  3. An oversized scarf. Not only can it add some color to your face, but it's large enough to hide that sweater you're sick of.
  4. Tights. Slap them on with a dress or a skirt for a completely new look. Bonus: No need to shave your legs.
  5. Red lipstick. Red lips add drama to any look.
  6. Heels. Similar to diamonds, they're a girl's best friend. Not only do they make you look taller, they also dress up any ensemble.
  7. A belt. Whether you wear it at the waist or low on your hips, a belt can completely transform your silhouette.
  8. Sunglasses. There is a reason all the celebrities wear them, and it's not only to be incognito.

  10. A cuff bracelet. Stack 'em or wear just one. Either way, baubles always draw the eye away from your outfit and straight to your accessories.
  11. A hat. It takes a certain kind of confidence to wear a topper and it'll instantly become the focal point.
