The best outfits don't match


To match or not to match? That is the question. The best part of styling an outfit is to decide whether to go matchy matchy or make it work without being obvious. 

In this example, we chose three colors as the base palette: white, nude and burgundy. Then added a few touches of black, salmon and other colors from the printed pants. But since we can't stand an obvious combination, we added a bright yellow cropped top that makes a statement while uniting the rest of the palette. It's simple: the more you try out new styling possibilities, the better your outfits will get.

Straightforward Style: Simplicity with an impact

Clean lines, monochrome palettes and lots of character. The straightforward style is comprised by interesting cuts and one of a kind patterns yet always remaining modernly simple. To achieve this taste in fashion, look for pieces that will accentuate your existing wardrobe and give it a new point of view while avoiding overly colorful or complicated designs. Easy on the eye repetition will be your ally and therefore symmetry, geometry, colorblocking, laser and crochet-like cuts are the way to go.

Outfitology: a studded vest and a skater skirt with 2 twists

We picked two current summer favorites for today's exercise in outfitology: a cropped studded vest and a black skater skirt. Making one of a kind outfits relies on choosing the perfect complements (or opposites) to an outfit core. Our first outfit core's accompaniments are all very classic and when paired with a casual denim vest and short skirt, balance and interest is created. What was fairly boring (pearls, white blouse, clutch, black heels) is now quirky and unexpected yet remains very chic.

For the second example, we chose three equally trendy pieces that portray different styles and will enhance the vest and skirt's versatility and en vogue status. However, the pale rose blouse is still an uncommon top for an edgy vest which creates contrast while the popping necklace and clutch ooze personality making the outfit trendy yet entirely new.
