Where has the summer gone? I mean, really – it feels as though I blinked, and suddenly it was all winding down. I guess the saying is true – time really does fly when you’re having fun. With this being such a jam-packed summer, I have had to narrow down my style and come up with a formula to achieve great outfits without much thought or time. At first it was challenging (and at first, I often left the house realizing that nothing about my outfit actually worked together) but quickly I realized there is a simply science to style, and once you know it – you never will have one of those “I have nothing to wear!” moments ever again.
Let’s be honest, we all want to look stylish every day. But some days are more rushed than others, other days you wake up more tired, and it’s easy to let our style slide during those times. On these days, refer to this simple 3 step formula to achieve great style:
The 3 Step Formula to Great Style Everyday
The Neutral Factor
When you’re putting an outfit together quickly, one thing to remember is that either the top or bottom should be in a neutral tone. This simply just makes it easier to quickly add a print or bright colour with the other item, and will help you avoid throwing together pieces that clash. For example, a pair of jeans will always work as a neutral base for your outfit. Once you throw on your favourite pair of jeans, you can really add on any top without the worry to mismatching.
Add in Texture
Texture instantly adds something interesting to an outfit. A lace shirt, suede shoes, or a metallic handbag will immediately take a simple look and elevate it. Best of all, if you have all of these things you can often mix and match them within the same outfit as most textures work beautifully when worn together.
Add in a Print, or Pop of Colour
Colours and prints brighten up an outfit and give your style a bit more personality. Even if you stick to a all-neutral outfit, adding in a bright pair of shoes will make your overall look appear more thought-out and sophisticated.
