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.
