Be bold on your color choices.
Spring is the perfect time to get colorful on your outfits so give your neutral ensembles a break and be ready to show off your creative look. Like Hilary, you may spice up your muted blouse with a brightly colored green skirt that will add some vibrant to your looks. Or, think of teaming unexpected color combinations just like wearing a red top with a pink skirt, as well as wearing a hot pink tank top with a mustard bottom like Hilary did. This way, you’ll make your spring look a bit quirky and trendy effortlessly.
Get creative on mixing prints or selecting quirky patterns.
Add some personality with prints and patterns. Like Hilary, you may even mix prints in a classic way by going for the same pattern in different scales on your top and skirt and contrasting it with a striped clutch giving you that trendy yet quirky look. Or, add some variant to your looks by going for a polka dots blouse teamed with a striped pencil skirt and classic pumps. If you’re not a fan of mixing prints, just pick ones in quirky, eccentric, or even novelty detail that can do the tricks for you.
Look quirky by making your spring looks over-the-top.
We’re always taught to keep everything balanced and proportional, but it wouldn’t hurt to get avant garde and unexpected from time to time. Like Hilary, instead of toning down your bold colored polka dots blouse with nude pair of heels, add some twist with a red pair of classic pumps. If you’re wearing an abstract print outfit with contrasting patterns, you can even make it creative with a bold necklace and a pair of cobalt blue shoes like she did.
Wear the vintage look in an unexpected way.
Vintage outfits can sometimes make you stylish or even looking like stepping out from your grandmother’s closet. So, strike the balance between the two and wear vintage in an unexpected way. You can even get a theme reminisced from the past while updating it with modern accents. By heeding these tricks from Hilary, you can get a quirky and trendy look this spring effortlessly.
