How To Mix and Match Styles?

Hey there,

I hope your week went well!  So, I want to know, what did you shop on sales these past few weeks?

As far as I’m concerned, I found a bunch of cool stuffs I’m really happy about.  And in this post, I’ll show you two pieces I got at Xandres/Hampton Bays that make for a great look.  (By the way, I already wrote to you about this great Belgian brand – if you wanna check the previous post, it’s here 😉 )

One of the things I like to do with my looks, is to mix and match styles.  In this case, it’s a pair of casual printed pants, and a very elegant blouse with shawl collar.

I think it’s interesting to break the ultra sophisticated style of the blouse with something more casual or sportswear.

The cool thing is, depending on the shoes, bags, and other accessories you choose, you can go from one end of the casual/sophisticated spectrum to the other:

  • For instance, if you wear a pair of sneakers, then the blouse would add a “grown-up”, or a business woman twist to your sportswear look.
  • On the other hand, if you wear of pair of stilettos, then the trousers add a more casual feel to your polished outfit.

I already tried both looks, and I love it.  I think it looks great, and it’s original.  You also have another option:

  • I think that for a grown-up but not too fancy look, you can add a pair of derbies.  I believe it would be more neutral than the other looks, but still super interesting.  Now all I have to do, is to find the perfect pair of derbies, and let you know how it turns out.

Let me know if that look works for you, and which pieces you paired together!  🙂

Bisous,
