Want to update your wardrobe but no time (or money) for a full over-haul?

Here are some easy styling tricks anyone can use to give their wardrobe a wake-up call!

Color-block bright separates:
What makes watermelon, one of the season’s hot hues, even punchier? Pairing it with super-hot pink (like Emma Stone, pictured). Or go all blue with a turquoise T and cobalt skinnies.

Belt it out:
For a simple way to define your waist when you’re wearing a voluminous skirt or flowy top, wrap a Japanese inspired obi belt around your middle. Let it stand out by keeping the rest of your accessories on the subtle side: Think a slim headband or minimal jewelry and clutch.

Go on, blush!:
You might think pink is only for spring, but it looks current in everything from swing coats to ladylike dresses. Why not push it by sticking on a lipstick shade in a pink that’s richer and deeper than what you’re wearing?

Clip some cute “baby bangs”:
Not into shaggy, hand-in-your-eyes strands? Hello, little-Dutch-boy fringe. Have your stylist trim bangs 2 to 3 inches above your brows and comb in a gel to nix frizziness.

Slick your hair waaay to the side:
For bangs that stay put in a sleek style like Rooney Mara’s, make a deep party, blow-dry with a paddle brush, and pat on gel to seal in shine and eliminate flyaways.
