There are days when I like to reach for my basics and go, and there are days when I wake up feeling inspired to shake things up a bit and style unexpected pieces together. Mastering unexpected fashion combos can be done in a subtle way, without being over-the-top! I suggest you start with basic pieces that pair well together or that you feel comfortable in, then play with different items you normally wouldn’t style together.
For instance, here I started with a basic white tee + denim skirt, then I played with these dad sneakers (that everyone is obsessed with!) & socks combo for the unexpected pairing! I topped the look with a colorful oversized striped shirt to contrast the neutral palette I had going and viola! The last piece that brings this whole look together is the over the shoulders sweater. It’s the perfect piece to complete the look and really give you a polish yet fun preppy look! I call this look the “Sporty, fun Princess Di,” look. I wanted to keep things relaxed but fun. It’s all about experimenting with different basics, color palettes and textures until you find the right combo! So next time you’re feeling inspired to try something new, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Fashion is all about having fun, but make sure whatever you’re wearing you feel good in.
Are you more of a basics type of person or do you like to experiment with unexpected combinations? I’m a bit of both. Comment below what your favorite vibe is! xx
