Your outside appearance is essentially a reflection of your beautiful personality on the inside. And while you don’t necessarily need clothing to look better, the right pieces can boost your confidence and make you feel more attractive. Come on, just think about how different (and more powerful!) you probably feel when you slip into that perfect-fitting suit for an important meeting or go for that favorite dress that instantly amps up your vibe for a first date.
To give you a sense of the items everyone must own for a more elevated look, we tapped Alex Sweterlitsch—celebrity stylist and the founder of Fashion Instant (aka someone that works with stylish influencers daily)—to spill on the five items he thinks will make you look more attractive.

"Whether you're a size zero or a size 12, wearing items that are fit to your body instantly makes a difference. You could shop at any price point as long as you have things altered to your figure. My favorite is a nice trench coat or a blazer. Both items can be styled so many ways and instantly add polish to even the simplest outfits."
"A perfect-fitting dress is always ideal. Usually an A-line shape is best since this is universally flattering, but it can also be a simple shift silhouette. There are a number of classic shapes that never go out of style."
"While I'm cautious to recommend this because the pain of high heels is something I don't experience, a shoe with any height (this can be a kitten heel or a platform wedge) instantly requires better posture. I've been on many photo shoots where the shoes are not in the frame, but the talent wears heels anyway to maintain a good pose."
"If your beauty were a sentence, jewelry would be the proper punctuation. Whether it is a small diamond earring to sparkle on your ears or a silver pendant to outline your neck, jewelry has a subtle way of saying, Hey, look right here."
"I'm a big believer in color theory. Slightly bronzed? Wear a white shirt. Fair skin? Go for deep rich colors. Dark skin? A pop of primary color looks amazing. And of course, the purity of head-to-toe black works on everyone."
