Welcome to Style Hacks: your guide to outfit perfection with Gwynnie Bee. Get the most out of your memberships with these fashion tricks and tips. These chic hacks give life to “not-quite-right” styles, offering you a chance to play dress-up before you ship back. Shown on Meaghan of Little Lime Dress, these four tips might just change the way you view your next Gwynnie Bee box. 

Zipped To Perfection
Let’s say, a front-zip dress arrives and it’s not the quite the right fit. Rather than sending it back, try layering it open over pants and a top. Pro tip: Material matters! Stiffer fabric lends a trench-coat feel while a chiffon dress can instantly transform into a deconstructed vest.

Shifting Into Separates
You unbox your new shift dress and the shape just isn’t working for you. Give it a second chance as a separate layered under your favorite pencil skirt. Silhouette solved! Ensure the material is light enough to double as a top and shorter than the skirt’s hem length.

Play With Proportions
Trying on your recently arrived button-down shirt and the cut seems un-wearable. Take a novel approach and tie it off over your dress for an instant style refresh. Keep the look coordinated by matching colors and keeping prints minimal.

Blouse For Keeps
You try on your new blouse and it’s too–blousy. Play with proportion by pairing it with your favorite boyfriend jeans or tuck into a pencil skirt. Suddenly, the top becomes a mix-and-match powerhouse. We love the chance to style a separate that’s almost there, and give it a starring role in your wardrobe.
