Fun and Fabulous Style Risks to Take Now

Fashion is such a fickle industry and trying to keep up with the most recent trends can be really challenging for a lot of us but if you’re someone who wants to make sure she doesn’t get caught in a fashion faux pas, keeping up is a must. Now that we’re starting another year, though, wouldn’t it be fun to include broadening your sense of style in your list of New Years resolution? Here are fun and fabulous style risks to take now to help you get started on that goal.

  • PILE ON THE BRIGHTS – so they said go easy on the brights, eh? Well, sometimes, being a rebel and going against the rule can prove to be a worthwhile thing to do so why not try it and do a bright on bright on bright combo. This will definitely liven up your look and give you that fun, cheerful vibe which can be a really refreshing sight during the winter months.

  • WEAR DRESSES OVER PANTS – you’ve seen your favorite style stars sport them before which means they can be done but how exactly do you pull off this combo? Well, one important thing to keep in mind is that you want to go for a dress with a simple and straight cut silhouette to wear over your pants so that you don’t end up with too much going on. You’ll also want your dress ideally exposing at least a third of your pants to get that intentional but chic look.

  • PLAY WITH SHAPES AND SILHOUETTES – going out of your comfort zone and trying out new shapes and silhouettes can be fun and doing this will let you discover new styles that will flatter your figure. On days when you’re feeling a little more adventurous, why not try going for unusual ones? A boxy jacket, a structured top, loosely oversized palazzo pants – these are just some of the many interesting shapes and silhouettes you can play with. For once, forget about proportions and just go crazy with mixing and matching whatever you like!

  • SNEAK IN YOUR SNEAKERS INTO EVERY LOOK – this may sound hard to believe but your sneakers can be worn with just about anything and everything you have in your closet, thanks to one of the hottest trends of today that is the athleisure trend. And we’re not just talking about basic, low-key white sneakers here, we’re talking legit sports shoes. Cool, isn’t it?
