Looking put together without putting in a lot of effort is the dream of every fashionista, right? Well, what might surprise you is that those dreams can be made a reality! Creating a polished look can often be achieved with just a couple of clever styling hacks. These easy tips and tricks on how to look put together are all it takes into tricking someone (and yourself) that you’ve got it all together. Even on the days where you feel like you so don’t. Without further adieu, here are some of the easiest ways and tips to looking put together.

How to Look Put Together

1. Tuck in your top

Possibly the most easy way to look put together is to simply tuck in your top. A put-together look is often streamlined and flattering, and this trick will give you both.

One great way to get this style with ease is by picking up a bodysuit. This piece allows you to get the perfect tuck and will add a little bit of sleekness to everything from dress pants to a casual pair of jeans.

2. Know what looks good on your body type

Even if you have all of the finest clothes in the world, silhouettes that aren’t flattering to your body type will just look “off”. To look put-together, it’s all about showing off the best version of yourself. So always take your body shape into account.

Do you have a small waistline? Go for high-waisted items that will accentuate your figure. Do you have broad shoulders? Try and create volume on your lower half to balance your proportions. It will make a world of difference!

3. Throw on pointy shoes

While rounded-toe pumps usually read “feminine and sweet”, pointed-toe shoes are perfect for those looking to take their look to the next level of sophistication. Pointed-toe flats are also a good choice, but a pair of heels will always make a huge difference in your look (without much effort on your part!).

This silhouette will also elongate your figure (and who doesn’t want that look of mile-long supermodel legs?). Grab this stylish pair of shoes in neutral colors like nude and black for the most outfit combination possibilities.

4. Quality over quantity

One common misconception about stylish women is that they must have a closet that rivals a department store, stuffed will all of the latest trends. More often than not, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. While many stylish celebrities likely do have an abundance of clothes, the everyday stylish woman knows that quality is always better than quantity.

These high-quality basics may be more expensive, but they will last way longer and luxe fabrics like wool and silk will instantly add a luxe vibe to your look. If you’re not sure where to begin when it comes to buying these investment pieces, you can always try the popular capsule wardrobe method. This method is often used by the French, and if anyone knows a thing or two about looking put-together, it’s them!

5. Add a structured blazer

One of my favorite ways to instantly pull together a look is to add a structured blazer. Even when thrown on with a basic tee and skinny jeans, this piece is one of those closet staples that will instantly elevate even the most simple look.

Go for either an oversized blazer or a more tailored option, but always make sure it fits your body to a tee. If not, a good tailor is always an option. Ill-fitting clothes can quickly ruin your entire look, no matter how chic and put-together it is.

6. Develop a quick, easy, and chic beauty routine

In order to ensure you always look your best when leaving the house, finding a quick go-to hair and beauty routine will be a lifesaver. One stylish look that doesn’t require hours in the mirror is a low bun and a swipe of lipstick, mascara, and concealer. Pulled-back hair is a great way to give yourself that “professional” look and it works for all hair types.

In addition, lipstick, mascara, and concealer are the ultimate trifecta for highlighting your features without overwhelming your look. “Less is more” doesn’t just apply to your wardrobe, but to your makeup as well!

7. Accessorize with sunglasses or some tasteful jewelry

When it comes to looking chic and pulled-together, a pair of oversized glasses will quickly become your best friend. This simple accessory can hide tired eyes and provide you with that alluring air of mystery that stylish women pull off so well.

In addition, tasteful jewelry will always add the perfect finishing touch to a chic look. You can even go for a pair of eye-catching earrings or a statement necklace, but make sure to keep the rest of your accessories to a minimum. This leads me to..

8. Find your “signature”

When we look at some of the style legends from the past, they often have a trademark that they’re known for: Audrey Hepburn with her red lipstick and little black dress; Jane Birkin and her laid-back jeans a t-shirt combo; Bridget Bardot and her voluminous blonde locks. This may be one of the harder items on this list since it takes a bit of exploring. But finding your signature style and look will instantly set your apart from the crowd and make it easier to create pulled-together looks that represent you.

Whether you use one of these tips, or all of them, creating stunning put-together looks is made way simpler. Whether you’re dressing for work or just going out for groceries, taking the time to put together a chic outfit will make all the difference in your style and leave you walking with confidence.
