This Top Blogger Shares Her Timeless Styling Tricks

Here at Who What Wear Australia, we believe personal style should make you feel good and bring you joy. Case in point: dropping a month's rent on a pair of jeans might not seem practical, but when they're the missing piece in your wardrobe, sartorial bliss is increased tenfold. 

Jewellery is much the same—it might not keep us warm or dry, but boy, does it look pretty. (See the new collection from Swarovski for proof.) 

In the words of influencer Tanja Gacic, great style is about balancing fashion and accessories in a way that enhances each piece, while still making sense to you personally. 

And while the rules may be ever-changing, elevating your personal style with a classic trick or two can pay dividends on the happiness scale. With this in mind, we collaborated with Gacic to explore six timeless styling tricks you can apply to any look. Keep reading to learn three of her tips and to shop some of our favourite jewellery picks, then visit My Empirical Life for the full story.

Draw attention to your slimmest feature by showing a little strategic skin. Calling out the trend du jour, Gacic suggests pairing an elegant off-the-shoulder top with a structured skirt for a timeless, feminine look.

How do you elevate a classic necklace? Wear two. Find the small dent between your collarbones—the suprasternal notch—this is the ideal placement for pendants suspended from fine, layered chains.

When you want to make an impression, bold is the way to go. Play with tassels, fringing and loose ends contrasted with a sleek silhouette. Match your shoes to your apparel to keep the look balanced and modern.
