Five Ways to be Fearless with your Style

A recent Refinery 29 article by Connie Wang, displays a long list of style options that could satisfy any bold fashion enthusiast!  We’ve narrowed the list down to our top five picks.  When it comes to developing your sense of style, it’s fun to branch out and be a little daring.  These five tips will undoubtedly be able to freshen up a stale wardrobe.

First, make room for over-sized clothing in you closet.  Whether it’s a pair of wide leg trousers or an over-sized baggy sweater, you can create an effortless look with clothing that drapes loosely over your body.   I’d suggest these wide leg trousers from Forever 21, featured below.  They’re stylish, comfy, and will look great paired with an over-sized sweater or a tight-fitting crop top.

Second, if you’re a fan of black outfits, Connie advises that each piece should really count!  If you’re going to wear a black jacket, why not make it a leather statement piece complete with buckles and silver zippers, like the one featured below from Nasty Gal.

Next on the list, is a jacket with leather-cut appliqués.  I can’t get enough of this colorful leather-cut jacket and handbag, featured in the Refinery 29 article.  This look has the perfect amount of color to make it stand out!

Now it’s time to get a little crazier.  You can make the hottest statement look by combining awesome patterns with bold solid color pieces.  Connie demonstrates this perfectly in the following picture.  My favorite is the hounds tooth pants paired with the yellow handbag.  The yellow comes to life when paired with the black and white color combination of the pants.

Last but not least, it’s time to take your shoes to the next level by opting for a pair with an exquisite architectural heel.  In my opinion, no one does it better than Julia Lundsten in her Skin by Finsk collection.  The black shoes featured below are bound to turn any outfit into a statement!

I’m with Connie that some people love dressing for an audience and enjoy the passing looks from people in the street.  If that’s you, then it’s time for you to give these head-turning tips a try!  Check out the StyleChat app for all your style browsing and shopping needs.
