STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Switch Up Your Silhouette

November 14th, 2016 at 2:10am

Experimenting with different shapes and silhouettes in your wardrobe can be lots of fun, especially in the fall when warm layers become an everyday essential. Chunky knits, oversized sweaters and different styles of scarves are all pieces you can incorporate into your daily style, and they can easily transform a simple T-shirt and jeans look into something that looks chic and effortless. Plus, these items are definitely cozy and warm, so you’ll always be comfortable!

This Fashionista took cozy layering and cool silhouettes to the next level with her awesome fall look. Strutting her way to class through the falling leaves, her outfit centered around an asymmetrical plaid poncho that has a high neckline, immediately giving her an eye-catching look that created lots of movement as she walked. The bold statement of the poncho’s silhouette was offset by neutral tones in the pattern that are easy to match and perfect for fall. The fringe on the bottom of the poncho along with layered necklaces add more texture to her unique look, which she finished with a classic black tote bag and heeled booties.

So what’s my style advice of the week? Follow this Fashionista’s lead and recreate this look in your own style by choosing a fall knit option with an interesting shape. Try a poncho like this Fashionista, be adventurous and wear a cape, or maybe pick a blanket scarf and play around with different ways to wear it. This will create an awesome focal point for your outfit, making it easy to pair with other simpler pieces that you already own. Don’t be afraid to play around with texture and layering too—that’s what will make your look unique!
