Style Challenge | Style Mixing

Whenever I feel a style rut coming on, I select one piece from my closet, name its style (i.e feminine, edgy, preppy, etc.) and then select another piece, name its style and create a look from here. Its a method I use to create variety because I am always looking for ways to mix things up with my wardrobe without breaking the bank. Last week I posted about creating a wardrobe of versatile pieces, this week is all about style mixing – that is using the style of a piece to create a variety of looks. Armed with both of these tools, you are sure to get the most out of your wardrobe…

Finding ways to mix styles in a single look is one of the tools I use to add variety to my wardrobe. Style mixing is a great method for adding interest to a look and can easily transform a outfit.Take this look, there are feminine elements {embellished sweatshirt, paisley tights, sweet ankle booties}, preppy touches {collared shirt}, and a dash of edge {faux leather skirt}. The collared shirt could easily be swapped with a cozy sweater paired with a faux fur vest to create a completely different look that mixes edgy and more comfy/causal styles.

There are endless possibilities for how to mix styles – it can even be achieved by using accessories to subtly mix a style into a look, it can be achieved by adding a heel to elevate jeans from a causal style to a date night/night out with the girls, or it can be as simple as swapping a cardigan for a blazer. And the best part of this – there are no rules! So go ahead – mix preppy and hipster or put together a look with feminine florals and edgy studs…
