9 Easy Fashion Tips We're Stealing From Stranger Things Star Millie Bobby Brown
Millie Bobby Brown might only be 13-years-old, but the Stranger Things actress definitely has a crazy, good sense of fashion that even us InStyle editors (yes, grown women) have learned a thing or two from. Seriously, it doesn't matter if she's attending a fancy award show or making a television appearance, she always manages to stun, while still keeping everything aging appropriate.
You can channel some of her best looks for that fancy wedding you have coming up, or you can refresh your work wardrobe by taking notes on some of Brown's winning daytime outfits. Get your pencils out and use the below fashion tips to inspire your next street-style moment.
Recycle Your Favorite Pieces
The Shorter the Dress, The Shorter the Heels
Mix Lady-like Items With Tough Pieces
Make dainty dresses stand out by pairing them with cool-girl shoes—like Brown's Stuart Weitzman combat booties ($585; stuartweitzman.com). This trick also works with fabrics, so have fun mixing delicate laces with structured leather pieces.
Don't Under Estimate the Power of Tailoring
Ensure that your wardrobe staples fit perfectly by getting them altered to your exact measurements. Something like having your pants hemmed usually costs around $10, and it will instantly make your affordable pieces look luxe.
Accessorize Only As Needed
Sometimes it's best to leave sparkly necklaces and earrings at home and let your statement dresses take center stage for special occasions. The right pair of shoes can easily substitute for jewels.
Don't be afraid of color
Stop trying to blend in, and make heads turn in bold colors like bright yellow. The striking hues also look amazing in the fall. So don't forget to keep the fun colors coming and incorporate them in your accessories, too.
