It’s easy to start the week off on solid footing — outfits planned, accessories laid out, outlook all bright-eyed and bushier-tailed. But come, say, Wednesday, fashion fatigue can start to kick in. Suddenly you’re more concerned with getting through the next few days than colorblocking your heels and handbag.Whether you’re preparing to head into another seven-day stretch or bracing yourself for the circus that is NYFW, we’ve got seven killer style tips to shake things up and keep your look innovative, fresh, and exciting without having to use up all of your mind grapes. Yup. Best. Week. Ever.
Treat Leopard As A Neutral — If you’re hesitant about mixing contrasting pieces, start with a little leopard in the mix. It’ll add punch to your ensemble and plays well with practically all its fellow prints. Plaid, stripes, florals…just give it a whirl.
Layer Your Favorite Striped Tee — Use your go-to weekend T-shirt to break up an all-leather ensemble. It also adds another dimension of pattern to this sharp, two-toned look.
Make Overalls Age-Appropriate — With a gorgeous printed collared top and pointed pumps, these leather overalls are so far from childish or grungy, we hardly recognized ’em.
Go Matchy Matchy For A More Formal Look — No, this is not a one-piece, beaded dress, but when you pair a matching top and bottom, the look transforms into something we’d love to don to a special affair. Afterward, swap the beaded top for a band tee or the skirt for a pair of cropped trousers — the possibilties are endless.
Mix Your Metals — We can’t wait to integrate a little metallic sheen into our fall wardrobe. However, the real trick is blending and colorblocking shiny shades from head to toe. Use toned-down accessories to pull it all together.
Wear A Contrast-Color Blazer With Pajamas — Perhaps you’ve had some trouble mastering the full-on PJ trend, but adding a contrasting, structured blazer ties it all together beautifully. You won’t lose the ease of the pajamas, but you won’t feel like you’re ready for bed, either.
Get Creative Under Your Sheers — Pretty little underpinnings are great beneath see-through pieces. For even more impact, add bold colors and prints under a sheer outfit. Now, that’s how you make a statement.
