ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Power Of Pattern

April 1st, 2016 at 2:00am

For some Fashionistas, wearing bold patterns or trends is foreign. Contemporary looks can be busy and difficult to wear. But for this daring Fashionista, stepping out in funky details is protocol. With warm weather just around the corner, this Fashionista stripped away her layers and went straight for a sheer, paisley blouse. Paisley is perfect for making a statement this spring season.

For a tailored ’70s look, this Fashionista wore her favorite pair of flared, chambray pants. Although sleek and modern, some Fashionistas are hesitant to wear flare as they’ve become accustomed to a straight or skinny cut pant. But this look is all about being offbeat. This Fashionista welcomes a truly trendy look. So this season, try on something that takes you out of your comfort zone.

On this Fashionista’s feet, you will find a pair of nude ballet flats with a cap-toe. Although they are neutral and basic, they can be easily worn with an eclectic outfit and taken from one occasion to the next. It is important to invest in staple items. You cannot go wrong with a pair of solid flats. Overall, your wardrobe will thank you for this go-to shoe.

To polish off her look, this Fashionista showcases her pre-spring inspired accessories. Avoiding dark, winter colors, she chooses a sophisticated, light-gray structured handbag. Of course while transitioning into spring, sunglasses are a must—especially ones that are fun. Embellishing her neck is a delicate Tiffany & Co. necklace. Since her blouse is very intricate, she wants to avoid a statement necklace so dainty jewelry is key for a busier look.

How To: Nervous to wear something outside of your style? Try it one piece at a time. If you want to showcase a bold pattern, one that you are unsure of, wear it with your go-to garment. This way, your look is not entirely unfamiliar territory.
