Holiday season is around the corner, and you need to act fast in achieving a style makeover. There are certain details that will update the classic silhouettes. If you rarely embrace color, this is your chance to delve into it. If sparkle sounds too much, step out of your comfort zone and bedazzle your looks. Experiment with hues and motifs that you normally avoid. Play with design elements that were never your cup of tea. A dash of novelty is often necessary. Before embarking on your New Year’s resolutions, revive your attitude towards style.
Turn Up the Volume
As a modern twist, that draws inspiration from the past, volumize certain parts of a classic form. Opt for puffy sleeves, ruffles, and tiers that alternate with fitted parts. To match or contrast the snow-clad cityscape, opt for the voluminous Theory Bell-Sleeve Wool & Cashmere Belted Jacket. To reference the Victorian era, check the sleeves of the Sandro Hibou Ribbed Oversize-Shoulder Wool Sweater. For the cuter version of the trend, rock the Cinq à Sept Romy Wildflower Print Double Tie Neck Blouse with morning bottoms.
Engage in Reflections
Glitter, sequins, and other shiny embellishments reflect the light in a festive way. Metallics are not limited to eveningwear. Style them for a fun morning with casual accessories or separates. Shine blended with animal motif results in the Alice + Olivia Katz Metallic Leopard Print Pleated Maxi Skirt. Weave the lurex thread into the mix to get breakfast glitz in the form of the Theory Metallic Wide-Rib Fitted Mockneck Sweater. You can even style the Marc Jacobs Metallic Rib-Knit Pencil Skirt with sneakers.
Relax your Fit
Roomy silhouettes exude comfort that boosts your confidence. Fluid fabrics, chunky knits, and textural outerwear can be worn loose or oversize on a daily basis. Layer over your urban looks the Sandro Roselier Plaid Trenchcoat. Pair your slouchy sweater with the Veronica Beard Russo High-Waist Side-Snap Wide-Leg Pants. In chilly weather, cover up with the ultra-comfy Aritzia Wilfred Lyon Double-Breasted Wool Coat.
Play with Visuals
Plaid, florals, and other bold motifs will maximize the effect of every shape you are wearing. Graphic details are show-stopping. Don’t shy away from statements. The print of the Zadig & Voltaire Ruti Pensee Floral Silk Dress is among seasonal bohemian favorites. Get a polished makeover with the Maje Vaime Check Suit Jacket. Try the daring side of things with the Maje Rebel Belted Check Cotton-Flannel Midi Dress.
Color-Boost Your Outfits
Think of either combining a bold with a neutral or getting full-on bright and daring. Head-to-toe yellows, pinks, greens, and other bold hues will break the rules and elevate your personal style. Be sporty with the Sandro Wave 1 Ambitieux Zip-Up Colorblock Sweater and jeans. Stay retro in vacay time by mixing the Diane von Furstenberg Diamond Squares Small Meyer Print Crossover Romper with Grecian sandals. In the office, become a sensation dressed in the bright Diane von Furstenberg Single-Breasted Blazer.
