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

Two-piece sets create the complete illusion.

Wake up late and don’t know what to wear? Grab your favorite two-piece set for an instant solution.

Matching sets give the illusion of being put-together with minimal effort. If you’re new to wearing a matching set, try a simple pattern like seen here on this knit jogger set. To break up the print or to avoid a monochromatic look, layer with jackets of different textures. A classic leather motto or distressed jean jacket will do the trick. Don’t forget to personalize the look with your favorite accessories. This could mean pom-pom sneakers and fruit bag for some, and a red bandana with Vans for another. Do you.

Take your style in retrospect.

Travel back to high school in a classic letterman jacket.

If you weren’t a jock in school, do not fret. Letterman jackets can be found at many retailers or even your local thrift shop. Layer a hoodie that compliments the colors in the jacket, like the white one worn by this New Yorker. Pairing black pants with the black jacket allows the yellow accents to pop. Continue adding pops of color to your outfit, like bright sneakers shown here.

  • Jacket – LA Vintage Find
  • Hoodie – Uniqlo
  • Sneakers – Nike/ Open Ceremony
  • Beanie – American Apparel

Black and white is abstract; color is not. – Joel Sternfeld

Fashion is all about contrast whether you’re playing off different shapes or colors, contrast draws the eye.

When wearing neutral colors don’t be afraid to try bold styles. For instance, a pair of color block jeans is a trendy, fashion forward way up your #ootd game. A mixed patterned coat is a great play on the solid black peacoats flocking the city streets. Pull two contrasting pieces together with a solid garment like this crisp white button down.

  • Coat – Prabal Gurung
  • Pants – Loewe
  • Top – Cos
  • Boots – Michael Kors

Eye-catching, trendy, essential, faux fur.

Faux fur can be seen around the city this season in so many variations; collars, jackets, vests, even pom poms on hats. The trend is even making an appearance in both men’s and women’s fashion.

When wearing a statement piece like a faux fur coat, its best to keep the rest of your outfit simple. A comfy sweater and basic denim will do the trick. In this case, it’s all about styling the outfit with accessories and I think this New Yorker nailed it!

Try adding a classic touch with brown loafers and some fun socks for a bit more edge. Swing your favorite handbag or backpack over your shoulders and you’re ready to hit the streets.

  • Sweater – Banana Republic
  • Jeans – Vintage Levi

Denim on denim, the New York way.

Layering denim can be a bit tricky. Do you wear the same wash on top as you do on the bottom? Do you mix acid wash with a solid jean? Should denim on denim be worn at all?

The answer is YES.

One of the easiest ways to pull off this look is to layer two different shades of denim like this New Yorker. The light wash denim jacket offers a high contrast to the black jeans. Pair with your favorite shirt, like this tie dye one, and some combat boots.

But most importantly, when playing around with trends like denim on denim, remember that there are not any rules to fashion, so just have fun!
