A perfect outfit lies not only in great color choices but also a good balance in your silhouette and proportions. If you’re in a hurry, it proves extremely helpful to have an arsenal of formulas that we already know look amazing and fit well. So, if you find yourself in a sartorial rut, keep on reading for our 7 outfit combinations that work every time.
- Boxy Top + Pleated Skirt
Since a boxy top don’t highlight your slim waist, pairing it with a pleated skirt with flared silhouette will keep your looks balanced and sleek. Wearing a boxy top with a pair of skinny jeans or miniskirts may sometimes work, but it can only make you look top heavy since you don’t have a waist definition. Like fashion blogger Ella Catliff, team your embellished top with a boxy silhouette with a pleated skirt in a stiff fabric like neoprene to keep everything sleek and chic.
- Blazer or Jacket + Shorts
Since shorts already display your legs, keeping your top a bit conservative is a way to go. Just like how you pair tank top with jeans, top team your shorts with a jacket or blazer that will keep your overall outfit balanced and proportioned. It’s up to you whether to go for a tuxedo blazer to complement your leather shorts, or a brightly colored jacket to add some pop to your denim shorts.
- Oversized Top + Skinny Jeans
Though wearing oversized with oversized is becoming a major trend right now, teaming it with something fitted like a pair of jeans would be great to keep your street style a bit trendy yet polished. Whether it’s a coat, sweater, turtleneck, or blazer, a pair of skinny jeans will give a balanced look to your outfit.
- Long Top + Leggings
The ideal way to wear your leggings, a long top will cover your front and rear while keeping your looks breezy and chic. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may actually opt for a polka dots blouse with A-line or billowy structure to keep your looks feminine and chic on a pair of leggings.
- Sleeved Top + Miniskirt
Since a miniskirt reveals a lot of your legs, keep your top piece conservative with a sleeved top. Like Ella Catliff, you may opt for a chiffon blouse that go perfectly with a metallic miniskirt, or team your button-down shirt with a full miniskirt that will give you some preppy vibe.
- Crop Top + Maxi Skirt
One of the most feminine and decent ways to wear a crop top, a maxi skirt will keep your style feminine and romantic. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may opt for a ruffled crop top and a floral print maxi skirt to keep your summer style breezy.
- Slouchy Top + Structured Skirt
Modern and trendy, wearing your slouchy top with a structured skirt will keep the balance on your outfit. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, team your sporty-chic sweater with a structured skirt and a pair of architectural heels to keep everything coordinated.
