A fur stole –you can dress up jeans or drape it over your shoulders when wearing a dress. You could also try it with your beaded top and jeans for instant glamour. Scour your grandma’s closet, thrift stores or your favorite department store for the perfect fur stole.

A flashy pair of designer heels – whether you wear Manolo Blahnik’s or Jimmy Choo, Gucci or Chanel, you can mix and match these with anything from flea market finds to expensive designer labels.
