Though most of us tend to go for the “same” styles each season because they flatter our shapes, be creative to try something totally out of your comfort zone, and mix and match different styles. The mind behind the Angy’s Tea Room blog, Angelica Ardasheva is a style blogger known for her chameleon looks from bohemian, classic, vintage, sporty, military, and even architectural ones. If you’re tired of wearing the same styles over and over again and don’t want to get stuck in a fashion-rut, keep on reading to scoop some inspirations from her.
- Have at least one traditional piece for a certain style.
Dressing for your shape doesn’t mean sticking to one fashion style at all times. Like Angelica, you may invest on one traditional piece for a certain style. For a vintage look, a vintage dress, pussy bow blouse, or draped top can be enough, so you’ll have more space for another look like bohemian, sporty, or military-chic. Sequin pants can be great for a glamorous look while a chiffon blouse look perfect for a romantic look. Like her, you may even mix and match your ensembles to create an unexpected look like wearing a structured pair of wide leg pants with classic coat and Victorian-style blouse.
- Play with creative prints and patterns.
Wearing prints and patterns on your outfit can be great to channel different moods and personalities. Don’t limit yourself to classic stripes, houndstooth, polka dots, feminine floral, and vintage plaids as novelty prints, brush stoke prints, graphic patterns, and artistic prints are now trendy. Like her, you may even think of a butterfly-print maxi skirt to spice up your simple and grounded chocolate brown jacket. Looking for unexpected way to wear floral? Then go for a silk matching set of blazer and pants like Angelica did. This way, you’ll look more creative and exceptional in the office.
- Be creative with your outfit structure and silhouette.
You may always go for silhouettes that flatter your shape like a fit-and-flare dress for a bottom-heavy woman or an empire blouse with a well-endowed woman. However, always make your outfit unexpected and creative by going for architectural, unique, and statement-making structures without drawing away from flattering lines for you. A dress in one-shoulder style will look more stylish when made from architectural structures as well as a dress, skirt, or crop top. Like Angelica, be bold on your dress styles by going for futuristic yet wearable looks.
- Top your outfit with stylish outerwear.
Outerwear like a tweed blazer, denim jacket, trench coat, wool coat, military jacket, leather vest and such can add some polish to whatever outfit you’re wearing. Still, go for styles that flatter your shape like a cropped blazer for a woman with a slim waist and curvy hips and a structured coat for hiding unflattering muffin tops. This way, you’ll still be a style chameleon without overshadowing your best assets.
- Go for unique, eye-catching, and stylish accessories.
Accessories can make or break your look, so be careful in choosing them. Like Angelica, you may go for classic, structured, and neutral-colored bags that will add some classic vibe to whatever outfit you’re wearing. On the other hand, box clutches and fruit-shaped mini bags will add some trendy and quirky feel to your outfits. Just go for ones that you feel comfortable in and show your personality by just wearing them.
Whether you’re a fan of wrap dresses, high waist jeans, peplum tops, and color paneled dresses, don’t be afraid to change it up every once-in-a-while. As having a chameleon style will take you anywhere you want!
