If you’re not good on mixing and matching your ensembles, simply stick to a monochromatic or tonal way of dressing that will keep your outfit awesome. Though a perfect fit is the most important thing to remember, some women are embracing the oversized and billowy trend that you may find challenging to wear. This time, use the trick to make your outfits look polished and sleek even though it doesn’t define your waist compared to your other well-fitting pieces. If you’re looking for a chic style in the winter, keep your layers in a monochromatic look like fashion blogger Jenny Bernstein did. When it gets a little hot in the summer, embrace your lightweight ensembles by wearing them monochromatically.

  1. Opt for a black-and-white combination.

Classic and timeless, the black-and-white combination is the basic look you may go for regardless of your fashion style and season. Whether you wish to wear your poncho and jeans in the winter, or your leather jacket and pants in the fall, the combination always create a cohesive look every time. Think of mixing prints this summer? Go for black and white combination on your prints to create a cohesive and sleek look, especially if you’re just a beginner on wearing the challenging trend.

  1. Team plain with prints.

Teaming your plain pieces with printed ensembles is a timeless way of getting a creative style. Just pay attention to your accessories like a bag or a pair of shoes as they will count on your overall looks. Like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks, you may opt for a pair of floral print pants, but keep your top piece and accessories plain and muted so you’ll keep that cohesive look, especially if you’re a fan of wearing slouchy and oversized pieces.

  1. Pair fitted pieces with flared or boxy ensembles.

Though wearing oversized with oversized became a major trend right now, you must follow the fit-and-flare rule if you’re aiming for a cohesive and awesome style. For instance, you may wear a fitted miniskirt, but keep your top piece boxy. Or, opt for a fitted top and go for a flared skirt or trousers. This way, you’ll keep the balance on your outfit while looking awesome on your street looks.

  1. Belt your waist.

If you’re really a fan of wearing shapeless dresses, oversized coats, and slouchy tops, simply belt your waist to keep your figure a bit womanly. Summer may be a time for lightweight tops and dresses, but think of defining your waist with a belt, or else your waist will look as wide as your hips. Also, the formula works in the winter where heavy layers of clothing are present. By following these 5 fashion formulas, you’ll be sure to create awesome outfits every time.

We find these formulas work every time to create interesting outfits. Since we find fashion bloggers—women who know a thing or two about putting together outfit people love to look at—often use the formula themselves, make use of these tricks to create fashion-forward outfits.
