Keep these easy fashion tricks in mind for the next time you need that little something extra to help pull you through the day.
- Wear something that makes you smile
Whether it's a fun pair of animal-print loafers or your grandmother's locket, put on something that brings a smile to your face. Lifting your mood boosts your energy and makes you look more refreshed.
- Wear fragrance
A yummy scent has a way of transporting you to another level. New fragrances like the amazing Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker will elevate your mood in an instant.
- Don't wear anything too comfortable
Your first instinct when you're pooped is to reach for comfort clothes. For most of us that means something well worn-in and bordering on sloppy (ripped jeans, baggy sweats, faded track suits). Instead reach for rich fabrics like velvet, satin and cashmere. They'll give you lots of comfort without looking sloppy.
- Wear your favorite color
Whether your favorite color is baby pink or black, it's a scientific fact that surrounding ourselves with our favorite colors makes us feel better. And if you feel better, you look better.
- Wear a dress
Now's not the time to fuss with layers and belts; a simple, one-piece dress -- like Diane von Furstenberg's classic wrap dress-- can take even the most exhausted woman through the next event with ease.
- Makeup is a necessity, not a luxury
Lush dark lashes, a smooth foundation, touched up blemishes and undereye circles, blush and lipstick will work miracles.
