One of our favorite ways to style an outfit is by combining different textures, colors, and pieces to create looks that are gorgeous and eye-catching. That’s why we’re loving the current trend of eccentric and eclectic mixing and matching. Think: floral on floral, stripes on plaid, next level monochromatic, and more. While it may sound a little bold–and it is–there is an art to pairing pieces that will create a look that works. That’s why we’ve outdone ourselves pulling together three looks to help you play with eclectic pieces of your own.
First up is this bright, bold, and casual look styled two ways. There’s no question the sweater is the statement piece, which is why we paired it with light denim skinny jeans, and then added a pair of blue sunnies for a little extra color. Since we couldn’t decide on our favorite footwear for this look, we went with two possibilities: flats or heels. The flats are a fun print and accent the color of the sweater, while the heels are a pale blush pink for something more neutral. Both ways are great options for a day of running errands or out to brunch.
Michael’s Styling Tip: When wearing a colorful top like this one, it’s essential to balance the look with neutral bottom.
