7. The Ultimate First Layer – I discovered this layering top at Theadora and have purchased one in every color. They sell out fast, so if they don’t have the one you want, give them your name and number and they’ll gladly call you when new stock arrives.

$28 at Theadora

8. A Punchy Purse – A snazzy handbag can instantly elevate your look.  Step away from your basic brown and black and go for a bold color or an edgy detail like studs.
