For some reason ingrained in our brains is the belief that some combinations and ideas in fashion are impossible to pull of, or will make you look bad. Here is a fresh and new perspective of these ideas you never thought to try.
1. Stripes and Stripes
Yes, I’m serious. As long as you wear it right you’ll look fabulous and unique. If you’re not sure, try just a shirt and jacket. That way you can take off the coat if you don’t like it. For an even funkier addition you can add one article of clothing with big stripes and the other one with smaller stripes.

2. Pants For A Party
Who says women have to wear skirts all the time? Take a hint from Emma Watson at the Golden Globes(and many other places). If you want to stand out at a party, try nice pants instead of a dress. Just make sure to check if it’s appropriate for the event. Also, you have to find just the right pair of pants. You can’t just throw on the first pair in your closet, or you’ll look under dressed.

3. Ties, Ties, Ties!
Make sure your outfit stays somewhat feminine while trying this trend out. You can go head to toe menswear inspired if you’re feeling daring. Add jeans for a more laid back approach. Tuck the tie into a jacket for a more formal look or leave your jacket open for a casual, day-to-day outfit.

4. Belting Your Jacket
Sure, you don’t NEED to belt your jacket. But you also don’t NEED to look great. Some people just never thought about doing this and others dismissed it. If you have a brown jacket keep up the theme with a brown belt. If you have a more colorful jacket try a complimentary color or a safer black belt.

6. Midi Skirts
Because midi skirts are so big and eye catching many women are afraid to try them. But when done right, this skirt can look fabulous for an event or even just for an average day. If you don’t want to be too bold yet try a black or dark blue midi skirt with a black and white shirt and accessories. If you’re ready to go big or go home, try a bold skirt and mix-and-match.
