Leandrine Medine is the queen of eccentric that always works. Here she has kept the color palette to your basic minimal colors — white, grey and black — and added texture with layering and a sequin skirt. Don’t forget details often make your look. The bell sleeve of Leandrine’s jacket, and her metallic socks add that touch of quirky she is famous for.
Try mixing different shades of color with your accessories. Take a page out of Kate Bosworth’s (looking fantastic in a transitional ensemble) book by combining beige, tan and tortoise-shell for a look that says, “put together” but not overly coordinated. Her printed blue turtleneck follows the same theory, matching her denim dress, and highlights her shades of brown beautifully.
Everyone loves a casual look that reads chic like the one above — adding a bomber jacket to a pair of jeans does just that. Take it to the ultra chic level by adding snake-skin printed calf boots. For a seventies vibe that still reads modern, have your jeans hit just past the top of your boots.
This season, layering a basic fitted turtleneck to anything sleeveless not only gives your dresses and tops more staying power, but lends a fresh modern feel to transitional dressing. All great fashion involves risks, so don’t be afraid to mix prints. Stripes, most often, mix the easiest with other prints, making it a great place to start. This look also works beautifully because of the color combination of teal and green.
Kendall Jenner, easily the most stylish of the Kadashian clan, shows us how to dress in head to toe black without looking like you dressed for a funeral. A bit of skin goes a long way in breaking up your look, and while Kendall’s ensemble is most definitely sexy, the bit of lace, while not covering up much does lend the look some subtlety.
Alexis Chung, takes a basic knit dress and army jacket and gives it a kick. Pairing her dress with a pair of lace-up high heel boots, may seem like an oxymoron but it works, and gives her ensemble an entirely different look.
Black lace up high-heel boots may be the last thing you would think of pairing with a sweater dress and army jacket, but that may be why it works so well. When it comes to fashion, thinking outside the box, can be your best friend.
