Whether it is in music or food or fashion, defying the usual pairings and mismatching different styles can somehow work and produce great results. An odd pair is unexpected and pleasantly surprises the eye.
I’ve made it clear that I have never been a big fan of strict traditional style. I love adding twists to my outfits. Sometimes I go a little further and find myself in my closet reaching for leather leggings at 7AM. I guess I subconsciously try to spice up what promises to be a very dull day, like running a ton of errands kind of day. So why not?!
While I usually wear my edgy faux leather leggings with heels and maybe a moto jacket, there is no way I will run errands looking this way! Heels are just too tough on my feet to run around town. So my sassy Kate Spade flats with a romantic bow are the chosen pair of the day. They somehow complement and soften the edgy style of leather leggings. And then, so I don’t look awkward when I show up to the grocery store in leather leggings, I tone it down with an oversized relaxed shirt and a classic cross body bag. Finally, the look is complete once with my fun pink sunnies.
I am all over the place here, pairing edgy, romantic, relaxed, and retro styles. A truly odd pairing, that somehow works. My mood is definitely elevated and the day is no longer dull.
Do you mix styles? Which ones?
