Stand out without sticking out


Have you ever met someone who, for some reason, just looked incredibly interesting without looking like they put in any effort?

It’s all in the details.

All it takes to transform simple ensembles — like a little black dress or a tee and shorts — from meh to wow, are a few quirky toppers. From slogan sweaters to whimsical shoes and jewellery, these fun finishing touches help you make a statement without being too over-the-top.
