To all of my fellow Fashionistas(os) out there, we all have those few unique items in our closets that we wore once because we felt we could only rock them a certain way/with specific items of clothing…and there they are hanging in our closets going to waste! This STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK is focusing on one important style trend that will change the way you view your closet: dare to be distinct, mixing and matching different pieces in your wardrobe.
This Fashionista successfully captures this daring mix and match style trend. Looking completely casual and chic on the cobblestone sidewalks of Boston, this model confidently lives her fashion life on the edge. For a breezy, sunny October afternoon, she keeps it classy with a blue chiffon button-down shirt from H&M, tucked into a pair of Urban Outfitters navy blue high-waisted shorts. The two shades of blue favorably compliment each other. The darker denim blue makes the light blue shirt pop. Keeping it warm and cozy, she smartly decided to throw over an edgy, modern, patterned, silk blazer purchased from Ardene. She completed her look with chunky pearl and silver bracelets from Etsy and nude patent leather flats.
A quick first look at this trendy patterned blazer displayed in a store window can be intimidating. It can be perceived as what I call a “dead-end carticle of clothing”, a piece you only wear once and think that you have nothing to wear with it. There are so many pieces you can pair with something as funky as this! This Fashionista has a true eye for fashion, realizing that not only can she sport this silky blazer with jeans, leather boots and a fitted tank top, but that she can also mix and match it with another totally different look. She transformed this fun business-classy outfit, consisting of the chiffon top and high-waisted shorts, into a fierce boho chic ensemble, completed with the patterned, silk blazer.
One item can dramatically create an entire look! Whether it is a funky patterned sweater, scandalous colored shoes or a vintage-looking Kentucky Derby hat, remember to always keep your fashion eye keen. Dare to be unique when it comes to expressing your style. Many times intimidating pieces are the ones that really create that “wow” look. Chic brand, Silence & Noise, carries a wide variety of hip, sharp and trendy tops and blazers.
