Sometimes all it takes is one extra touch to make a difference, like the cherry on top of a sundae. That one element pops and makes something that’s already enjoyable downright delectable. A similar rule applies to updating your wardrobe; sometimes all it takes is a minor addition to make everything feel brand new.

Eye-Catching Earrings: While chandeliers are fun for special events and a pair of stunning studs or sleek hoops are great for every day wear, it is nice to have something like this geometric House of Harlow pair with a hidden ear cuff that will make any outfit special.

Tailored Trenches: While the classic taupe Burberry will always be iconic, try something in leather or another slightly unusual material that speaks to you, such as this Andrew Marc number. Choose a neutral so you can mix it up with scarves, hats, and gloves, and it could become your signature coat.

Basic Black Boots: Whether you prefer classic high heels, traditional equestrian styles, or something a bit tougher like these Jimmy Choo biker boots, investing in a pair of black boots that are comfortable enough to walk miles in but have luxe touches that make them special is always a good call.

Petit Purses: Yes, huge bags are practical, but there is something liberating about carrying only a small clutch or cross-body bag. Try something like this rose-pink quilted leather Marc Jacobs shoulder bag and you’ll definitely understand.

Haute Hoisery: Once you go high-end for your leg-wear, there is no going back. Invest in a pair or two of opaques from Wolford – you’re worth it! And besides, they’ll last forever.
