Fashion Tip: Contrasting Looks

When one style or look gets repetitive, the fun thing to do is change it up. One way to do this is to contrast the style. You can do this by using the opposite look or trend mixed with the original piece!
1. Sweet & Fierce
One way to mix sweet and fierce is Florals and Leather. Florals represent the sweet portion, as they are girly and innocent looking. To bring this look to the next level, one can be more rebellious and add a leather piece. I find that the best way to do this is to pair a pretty, floral dress with a black leather jacket!
The Look:

Garden Filled Knit Dress @ Forever 21 for $16.90 in Charcoal/Cream

Cropped Faux Leather Jacket @ Forever 21 for $39.80 in Black

Country & City
Where woven, knit, and country-vibe outfits meet the up-town posh look of the city! This can be tough to do, but with the right outfit it can look great.
The Look

Peaked Satin Blazer @ Forever 21 for $34.80 in Black
This blazer definitely gives a professional vibe that can be found in a classy, trendy city. Wear a simple white, off-white, or cream tank top underneath to keep the attention on the rest of the outfit.

Embroidered Woven Skirt @ Forever 21 for $18.90
This country-style skirt is the perfect contrast to the preppy blazer. It's so cute and feminine. The denim appearance also contrasts to the black satin blazer.

This is just another example of how to contrast two very different styles and make it work! Hope you enjoyed this :)
