I will be sharing a tip of the day on my blog to help you with small ways that you can easily change your look to something more put together . Before creating my blog & youtube channel, I began as a stylist using tips like these everyday.  So I thought I’d share some of my personal & professional styling tips with all of you!

With a simple tuck & roll you can take a boring and disheveled look into something more chic with two simple steps.

1. Tuck in the bottom part of your shirt into the side of your jeans to accentuate your waist .

2. Roll up your jeans just slightly above your ankles.

With these two steps, you create an outfit that looks more thought out and put together in the same amount of time it would take to look like you just threw on anything in your closet.

I hope you found this tip helpful!

Comment & let me know if you have any fashion problems you want me to solve through these Tip of the Day posts!

I love this tip. How tucking your shirt and rolling your pants can totally change your look from blah to fashionable.

Great tip! I would like to see more of your fashion and styling tips. I live in a tropical country so we kindda dress differently here. Maybe you could give us tips on what to wear when it’s really hot (both casual and work-appropriate) and maybe something for us short girls. Thank you so much in advance! I really like your blog. More power to you.

Thanks so much for the tip – it’s interesting to see how such small changes make such a big difference! :)
I have only recently been learning from Stacey & Clinton (I think they are great!) how to dress for my body-type (overall petite, but large bust) but I have always dressed quite plainly and have very little clue when it comes to accessorising or just adding a little bit of interest to outfits.
So I really love the idea of a ‘tip of the day’ and look forward to seeing more tips! :)

haha thanks for the tip! My short legs definitely need the rolled up cuff! :P There was this one time I rolled up the cuff slightly on my black skinny jeans at work..at my coworkers (guys) were telling me how much they hated it! :O Seriously wonder why…

Great tip! I’ll keep that one in mind :D
I was wondering if you have any tips on wearing “oversized” clothes? I think it’s a great look, but always worry about looking “too large” – I’m quite tall as well so I usually avoid it, though I’d love to wear it.

I really love your blog, and please continue with more of these tips! :)

Erika ( May 8, 2013 at 11:53 AM )

    Thank you Erika for your feedback! As long as you all still love these type of tips, I will continue to do it! and as far as your question I will keep that in mind for a future tip of the day!! <3

    Mira, yes even the smallest change can create an entirely new look! Let me know if you try it out!<3

I think, in order for me to judge objectively, you’ll need to pose in exact same way for both pictures i.e. stance and facial expression. When I view you with a solemn, almost “passport photo” expression, standing stiffly, with arms hanging limply at sides for ‘before” picture, then with a big smile, bent knee and thumbs hooked casually in pockets for the ‘after”, it subtly but undeniably and unfairly, IMHO, influences my reaction. Also, I believe footwear has a great deal to do with overall outfit appeal. In the second photo I clearly see that you must be wearing heels (which my on-the-run SAHM lifestyle would never allow, by the way) and the ankle straps draw favorable attention to fine, slim ankles. Perhaps flats or some other funkier footwear would make the first version more appealing. Just some thoughts. But I do thank you for the tips!

    I was just feeling a little drab in the before picture where I didn’t add in these little styling tips! Thanks for stopping by the blog!

    Chriselle ( May 8, 2013 at 2:49 PM )

My secret has been revealed! lol I’ve always believed: when in doubt, tuck and roll. I love half-tucking my tops and because im short, rolling up the bottoms of my pants has always been a ritual.
