FullSizeRender-1Think outside of the box, try a mismatched look.

I dare you to enter your closet and make an outfit out of pieces that don’t traditionally go together. You never know what you may come up with, it could be your new favorite look!

Here we have a two-piece jersey and shorts set paired with more traditional pieces, like a black blazer and oxfords. The trick to pulling off a look like this is having the confidence to try new things.  For this outfit, athletic wear has been turned into an office-friendly look by layering with a classic turtleneck and blazer. This New Yorker represented her personal style with studded oxfords, a trendier version of a staple shoe.

Outfit Details:

  • Blazer – Helmut Lang
  • Jersey Set – Nike
  • Turtleneck – Zara
  • Shoes – Unknown British Brand

Oversized outerwear: comfy, chic, athleisure.

Anyone can throw on a hoodie and walk out the door, but in a fashion driven city, you might get a few looks…and not the ones you want.

Amp up your style by layering with an oversized denim jacket and pairing it with tapered trousers. Dress pants are breaking out of the office and becoming an essential in the athleisure movement. Stay comfortable with a cute pair of sneakers to explore the city in. A simple crossbody bag like the one shown here makes the outfit a bit chicer, you could also take this as an opportunity to give your outfit a pop of color.

Outfit Details:

  • Jacket – Boohoo
  • Hoodie – Forever 21
  • Pants – Thrifted
  • Shoes – Charlotte Russe

People like to say that nothing is better than a man in a suit, but I like to argue, nothing is better than a man in a well-tailored suit.

Whether you’re tailoring your pants to rock the skinny leg trend or adjusting arm-pocket seams fit just on top of the shoulder, tailoring is vital to looking your best in a suit.

Aside from tailoring, my second piece of advice when wearing a suit is to make it your own.   In a large city, thriving with businessmen, stand out by going for an all over plaid print or even opting for a color outside of your neutral comfort zone. Get inspired by this New Yorker, trade in your penny loafers for some leather combat boots. He further proclaimed is personal style with a studded belt. If belts aren’t your thing, watches can also add a unique touch.

This New Yorker is transitioning into fall with this preppy ensemble.

With the autumn months upon us and the temperatures dropping, layers are your new best friend! Trying layering different hews of blue, like seen here, or any color of your choice. Working with in the same color family can be surprisingly complimentary, especially when paired with a crisp, white top.

Pairing a boyfriend blazer over a demin circle skirt, gives a chic schoolgirl feel. Add a little edge by pulling out the bottom of the top, for a laid back look, and finish the outfit off with a pair of knee high boots.

Outfit Details:

  • Blazer – Zara
  • Top – Unknown
  • Skirt – H&M
  • Boots – Stuart Weitzman
  • Bag – Prada
