Week 2: One week down, one to go! When we left off with Nicole last week, she had a rack full of bright clothes and an arsenal of new tricks from her styling session with celeb stylist-turned-accessories designer Ariela Suster. But the real challenge was just beginning: Incorporate a new item into her outfit every single day. How’s she doing? Let’s find out!
After mixing and matching for seven days straight, we asked Nicole which tips were working best—and she was full of advice! Here are Nicole’s new foolproof ways for making any outfit pop.
Mix in versatile pieces
“Of course, I was instantly drawn to the blazer ― it’s black. But what I love most is how it makes any outfit more dressy or sophisticated instantly.”
“Because of this shirt, I've been buying a lot of teal. I love this color, even though I have always avoided blues of any kind.”
“I don’t really carry purses, but I love this colorblock bag! It’s such an easy way to add color to any black outfit.”
Tune in next Tuesday (4/24) for the final results of Nicole’s fashion makeover. Plus, score her new favorite pieces in our 14-Day Makeover Challenge: Fashion sale. You can also learn more about our makeover series here and follow our healthy-eating and hair challenges.
