Throw out those jeans and cardigans and try on something new for size. Whether it’s monochrome or mixing prints like it’s nobody’s business, this is your season to drop the blah and drop some jaws!
Dressing in one color from head-to-toe may seem bland, but it’s all about playing up shapes, textures and accessories. Throwing on a chunky sweater or oversized blouse paired with fitted denim or leggings, looks just right. Textures and finishes will also create visual interest when dressing in a monochromatic ensemble. Think metallic leggings with leather on top. This is a great opportunity to try out some coated denim and some serious bling to draw even more attention.
If a solitary color isn’t for you, try the other end of the spectrum. Mixing prints has never been more fun. This season, don’t just stick with classic fall prints like plaid and stripes, try a more updated camouflage or micro-graphic like our adorable Mickey Mouse shirt! Ladies, try floral with a digital or geometric print. This look is best accomplished with two prints combined with a neutral so your outfit doesn’t look mismatched.
What’s life without a little sparkle? Statement jewelry is still huge this fall. Men will be happy to know that statement jewelry has come their way. Chunky necklaces and rings are for everyone, not just the ladies. For the truly bold at heart, body jewelry will turn you into instant eye candy. Over the shoulders or around the waist, these showpieces will be sure to turn some heads this season.
Just like the leaves falling off the trees, shed your inhibitions and stand out from the crowd!
