Little Details, Big Impact: The Style Secrets To Get You Noticed

Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make something the most memorable.

When it comes to life’s most enjoyable moments, it’s often the smallest things that can make them the most memorable – like a smile, or a hug, from a special person.

The same principle can be applied to our style: the littlest details can sometimes provide the biggest impact.

Sure, we can wear bold patterns, unique shapes and stand-out pieces… but sometimes, it’s those unexpected finishing touches that make all the difference to bringing a look together.

This holiday season, when we’re (finally) celebrating being back together with the ones we love the most, it’s time to make a statement with some small – but significant – features.

Nailing It

Polished fingers can make any look feel complete… so why not stand out by putting something cute on your claws?

Try adding unexpected accents – like nail art or nail stickers – for a more subtle look or put a twist on the traditional French manicure by using bright colours or highlighting the nail bed instead of the tip.

And it’s not all about colour – with the help of some gel extensions, stand-out shapes like stiletto and coffin bring some added drama to your tips.

Bring the energy with your accessories

Your party dress (or pants) doesn’t always have to be the centre of attention – sometimes your shoes and bags can do the talking for you.

Salvatore Ferragamo’s Holiday Collection is minimalist, yet explosive, featuring accessories with energetic details that bring an unexpected creativity to your look.

Think the designer’s signature F-Heel sandals covered in glitter, geometric-inspired pumps with a towering column of mirrors as the heel or penny loafers with a feminine twist in metallic pink with an oversized Viva bow.

Bags, too, have got an extra dose of vibrancy – pair a monochrome outfit with the Viva Bow Bag in Flamingo Pink Leather for style worth celebrating.

Eye see you

The eyes may be the window to the soul, but they could also be the key to getting you noticed.

Paired with a flawless face and a nude lip, go graphic with out-of-the box liner (think wings from both your upper and lower lash line), or try a classic cat-eye an unexpected neon hue.

For a more festive feel, shimmering shadow in pastel hues can brings a touch of magic or make a statement with metallic lids in glittering gold or show-stopping silver.

Tinted tresses

Sometimes, a subtle change of shade can make all the difference, especially when it comes to our hair.

It doesn’t have to be as bold and bright as a hot candy pink – try a sophisticated shade of navy on your hair for locks that make you look.

If a permanent change is too much commitment, tint the ends of your tresses in shades of rose gold or powder blue. Then, it’s easy to wash out and start all over again for the next night with friends.
