1: Hair accessories are a lot better with simple clean outfits.
2: A $10 gold watch can be a veryyyy versatile accessory.
3: Soft headbands can be doubled up as wrist accessories.
4: Sometimes outfits need not make sense to other people.
5: Vintage looking dresses don't always have to be expensive.
6: A country brown belt (be it light or dark brown) is always a good investment.
It doesn't go out of style, and it might pull your look together.
7: Knee/Over the knee socks worn with boots can give a different feel to the boots.
If you're uncomfortable with knee socks
8: Long T-Shirts can be cheap.
9: Black Leathery Leggings.
The trick to wearing leggings as pants (in my own opinion) is to find full length ones.
Full Length leggings are usually stated as 37" or longer.
Leggings are especially good for travelling because they pack alot LIGHTER! and SMALLER! as compared to jeans.
10: Boyfriend/Military Blazers.
TopShop, Zara(mens), River Island, LP Zone are some places to find good ones.
They may be slightly pricey, but its worth it. Especially so for girls with wide shoulderblades.
Because these days most blazers are made in duller colours (grey black etc etc),
try thrift stores for brighter colours.

11: Platform Boots that are 5 inches high.
It's also the easier way to start wearing high heels.
