Accessories can make or break your outfit.. I'm sure we've all heard that before. But are you aware of the fact that accessories can also transform your outfit too?
Like if you give the same dress to two different girls, and ask them both to wear it, you will definitely get two very different and unique styles (as long as they are not best friends!). With this concept in mind, and with inspiration from some nice sets I saw on refinery29, I have compiled a list of different outfits and how they can be transformed completely..
Now, just for the heck of it, I've labelled each style - Girly and Punk.
Girly doesn't mean only pinks, and neither does punk mean only blacks rips and tears. Here it's just is an example to show a bold look (punk) and a more subtle everyday look (girly).
