We partnered with Sears on this post that shows you how little things can totally make a look.
It doesn't matter what you are wearing; you can level up your look and make a big impact with little details. We're talking textures, materials, colors, and accents you already have in your arsenal, but styled up in fresh ways — from metal mixing to studding up your shirt collar. Make a statement with just a whisper of something unique.

Definitely not for old fuddy-duddies, a proper pop of lace is always in style. We love how this jacket has just a few panels, adding a feminine edge.

Really, you can't go wrong with a few stud accents. We love how fierce they look when attached to this jacket collar. Look for clothes with them in unexpected spots, like instead of buttons or along the shoulder edge of a jacket.

From shoes to shirts, metallics add a bit of shimmer to any outfit, making you glow. And you can layer it on or just go with metallic accessories for a fresh look.

A trend that we're seeing this season, pom-pom touches are fun on shoes or hanging from handbags.

Making a comeback from the '80s, safety pins are a punk-rock way to add a bit of edge to whatever you're wearing. Stick a few on the shoulder seam of your favorite white tee, or attach them to your moto.

Pop of Pattern
Even if you're sporting all black, adding a colorful scarf filled with pattern is a simple way to include a bit of attention-grabbing detail. And we love the combination with his woven bag.

Silver and Gold
You might think mixing silver and gold is a fashion faux pas, but the two really do work well together — especially when styled the right way. The silver studs of this shoe accented the gold lines of the sheer skirt, looking
so rock star.

From bracelets to necklaces to bags, think of your accessories as unique details that add to what you're wearing. And you can mix and match different textures, colors, and materials for a head-to-toe look.

We love how the sheer addition to this skirt was such a fresh detail — even when the outfit was all black. Just a bit of sheer is so flirty and a bit unexpected.

Not just for blah blankets, quilting gives everything a bit of soft texture — especially leather. The extra detail pulls the eye and looks great when layered with other soft materials, like a cozy sweatshirt.

Really, fringe is just so hot right now, and you have to love how this outfit completely changed thanks to the long fringe of the skirt. So stylish.

Instead of looking fake, just the right touch of faux fur is actually so pretty — and a lovely detail along the edges of jackets or even as a cute cuff.
