Outfit Inspiration: Contrasting Textiles, Mixing Metals, and Winter Whites

13 Dec

Are you tired of the sea of grey that your winter wardrobe has become, do you step up to your closet and seem to be at a loss for inspiration in new ways to style yourself for holidays? If so here are a few inspirational photos from ShopBop’s Luxe Redux editorial to get those creative juices flowing:

Try taking your knits and pairing them with wide leg trousers or a silk maxi skirt. It’s a chic and effortless way to look put together without looking as if you’re trying to hard. Perfect for the office or weekend wear.

Mixing Metals: Mixing metallics are a great way to spice up and add sparkle to your holiday wear this season. It’s a modern and fresh way to add some festive flair to an ensemble. My favorite way to wear them is by mixing pewters and golds. If it seems a little overwhelming try combining different metals in your accessories like bangles or layered necklaces instead of in your garments.

also try mixing your metalics with fur for a luxurious and sophisticated look.

Wearing Winter White: Dressing in all white can seem bland but combining fur, knits, leathers, muted animal prints and silks are ways to add contrast in textures to give your monochromatic outfit some visual interest.
