Eclectic style is one of the most comprehensive and creative looks you may wear for Spring. However, creating an eclectic look can be challenging if you don’t have a chameleon style, so let’s have inspiration from Michèle Krüsi, the Switzerland-based blogger behind “The Fashion Fraction” blog, that’s known for her eclectic street style with modern twists.
- Add some flair to your outfit with interesting and unique accessories.
Having an eclectic look may mean mixing different looks and styles in one outfit, and wearing some interesting and unique accessories will tie your overall look. Like Michèle, you may think of going for both classic and military-inspired look with a camel coat and military pants, but, tie the overall look with a pair of animal print pumps that will add some interest to your outfit. If you feel so romantic with your pastel jumpsuit or too classic with your blouse-and-skirt outfit, add some eclectic vibe with it by wearing architectural belts, modern earrings, chic shoes, or statement boots like Michèle did.
- Incorporate some spring-inspired prints into your outfit.
There’s nothing feels more spring-inspired than wearing floral and leaf accents. Like Michèle, go for one printed piece and another plain piece to create a cohesive look. Print mixing may seem trendy and creative, but overdoing it will only take the spring vibe away from you. Wearing a leaf-print skirt with a chambray shirt, floral dress with a black blazer, or a matching set of floral blazer and pants will be great to look season-appropriate. You can always add some eclectic polish with your ruffled pieces, pussy bow blouse, architectural top, colorful tank top and such.
- Wear stripes modernly.
If you’re not a fan of floral prints, then resort to classic stripes for an interesting look. Whether jogger pants, form-fitting skirt, loose top, or a maxi dress, stripes will surely add some interest to your outfit. Wearing your stripes with other prints, bold colors, architectural silhouette, unexpected combinations, and such will keep your looks eclectic and creative. Skip those pencil skirts, jeans, graphic tee, or tank top that is usually paired with stripes and go for a denim jacket, paper bag skirts, and other non-basic pieces to refresh your street style for spring.
- Go for grounded shades perfect for spring.
Flashy and cheery colors may be creative, but f you’re not a fan of them, you’ll still have an eclectic look with grounded shades. Like Michèle, go for an all-black outfit but spice it up with a printed scarf and bag. If you feel your frayed boot cut jeans and knitted turtleneck top feels so ordinary, no need to go for flashy colors as a cowboy belt, bandana scarf, and edgy loafers even in neutral shades will do the trick for you. If you’re a fan of military look composed of green hues, then make it look eclectic with an animal print top that will give some fierce, classic, and sophisticated touch to a non-feminine style.
- Wear some creative layers on your street looks.
Wearing layers is one of the creative looks you can have, but don’t overdo it. A blazer with tank top, a draped V-neck top with a floor-length cardigan, or a suede skirt with a printed shirt dress may be enough to make your street style creative but season appropriate. Indeed, an eclectic style is one of the most creative and personalized looks you can have for spring that will look fashionable without going overboard.
