Vogue Inspired: Layers and Mixed Prints

LAYER UPON LAYER

Have you flipped through Vogue and noticed those unconventional pairings that look impossible but kind of wearable? I mean fashion magazines contain models styled in immaculate pieces with an elaborate finish. Not sure what I mean, how about the two-tone suit baggy on one side and tailored on the other? Or the neon-green leopard print jumpsuit paired with ruby red platforms?

Step out of ordinary and into originality.

Although some outfits are impractical, we can’t deny how those particular choices immerse us into a fashion fantasy, visually creating style crushes we grow to respect even if it’s out of our reach. Whether you think the outfits are too exaggerated or liberally enticing, fashion is all about playing with prints, textures, patterns and hues to refine your silhouette into your own personal but exclusive way.

Being original takes the courage to become something different, even if it doesn’t make sense to others.

While it’s almost time to put away our faux fur coats, wool sweaters and corduroy skirts, we can conveniently pair some winter pieces with our spring collection. You can combine certain pieces together for a juxtaposition effect; similar to the floral dresses worn with studded booties and a leather jacket. I like to mix and match textures for an effortless but cohesive look. The featured look I’m wearing consists of a light wool cropped striped hoodie, tribal print joggers, glitter ballerina flats with a fat bow and my favorite denim jacket.

Blazers and denim jackets are the ultimate closet essential every man and woman needs for a style boost. I wear my denim jacket with everything, so it’s definitely an outerwear repeater. To steer away from boredom, I want to wear my denim jacket in multi ways, similar to the quirky yet eye-appealing couture styles I see in magazines and runways. My only difference from Vogue’s high-end looks is my touch of inexpensive and urbane threads.

Style is based on mood by exploring the freedom to wear mixed-matched pieces and textures with no rules. I believe there is no right or wrong way to make a fashion statement. You being you is a natural way to announce your sense of style.

Want an elaborate layering style tip? Similar to Jughead from Riverdale and other streetstyle male bloggers, try wearing a statement tee with a denim shirt and a leather jacket over it. Tie a plaid shirt around your waist for more dimension and throw on some skinny jeans. Sounds like too much? That’s the point. Doesn’t matter if it’s 2-3 layers, just step outside your style comfort and wear the non-typical.

    I love this outfit especially the bottoms! I’m a big fan of print, leopard and florals are personal favourites. I’m a bit too scared to mix prints though, think I need to try thinking outside the box though as it could pay off! There’s a programme on UK TV called The Great British Sewing Bee. Last week a woman on there made a jumpsuit out of 2 clashing prints and it looked AMAZING. Love this post 😊

      I’m so happy you liked this post! I think when mixing prints try not to think too much about it and find colors of the same family in each piece.

    Love the look! Layering a denim jacket with a hoodie is my absolute favourite look to go for. For a university student, it is the perfect pairing. Looks like you put so much more effort in than you actually do.

    Such a great post! I’m definitely guilty of being scared of stepping outside of my comfort zone when it comes to fashion. I’m so basic but I’d love to have the confidence to be a little bit more out there with my fashion!

      Hey Kayla! Nothing wrong with being basic, especially if that’s you. Sometimes it’s nice to switch it up, I’m glad you’re up to trying something new and grateful this post helped😁

    This was a really interesting post to read, at the moment the only prints I feel comfortable mixing are spots and stripes! However I recently got a leopard print coat and spotty trousers but I’m really nervous about wearing it together! But as you say there is no right or wrong way to make a statement, maybe I should just do it!

      The next time you get dressed, just don’t think about it. Close your eyes and wear the first two pieces you pick, stay committed to the look! Fun way to take risks!

    I completely agree that every closet needs a denim jacket. And I’m definitely going to try elaborate layering style tip. I have a vegan leather jacket in my closet with the tags still on it that I’ve been wanting to wear. 😀

    Layered clothes are a fave of mine!!! I like the hoodie with a denim jacket over it. I have more of a casual taste when it comes to clothing, so I’m all about layers on layers! The plaid shirt around the waist (like Jughead (Riverdale)) is such a cool look (nice reference Tonya!) I don’t watch the show, but sounds like something I would wear

      You could totally pull on the Jughead look Chanel, especially since beanies are one of go-to headwear styles 🙂 So glad you liked the hoodie and denim jacket look, it’s something I always wanted to try and happy it came out pleasing to the eye. Can’t wait to see the new styles you put together 🙂

  11. I love the jacket and the pants. And they do go well together. I always liked to pair colors that do not, maybe, go together. Like violet and yellow. I do beleve it is the same with paterns, maybe we think they do not go together untll we try it.

      Great point Marta! It’s just something about the complexity and unconventional theme of two mixed matched pieces that pair so well together; the same goes with colors. Yellow and violet is so pretty together, can’t believe I forget about that combo 🙂

    I really love your mix print trousers, they are so awesome! I can’t wait for the weather here to get a bit warmer so I can wear my denim jacket again, it’s one of my favourites and you can create so many different looks with it. This is such a cool outfit Natonya, I never thought of wearing different patterns together but you have pulled it off so well. Thanks for sharing your style inspo! Fab post as always ❤ xx
