8 Fashion Risks to Take This Winter
We wouldn’t describe describe ourself as particularly risk-averse. But when it comes to our wardrobe, we've been pretty loyal to our regular outfit formulas. Not anymore. This winter, we’re breathing new life into our closet by taking these fun fashion risks.
Wear Your Shoulder Bag as a Crossbody
There’s no need to shell out the big bucks on a new handbag when you can just wear one you already have in a new and interesting way.
Wear a Sweater Under a Dress
Note that this won’t work with every dress, but a slip-like frock that’s on the looser side will provide ample room for layering a chunky piece underneath.
Mix Two Bold Prints
We’re used to mixing subtle prints, but we also love how pairing two in-your-face patterns is kind of a power move. Not sure where to start? Remember: Stripes are super versatile and a great jumping off point.
Wear Tights in a Color
Keep the rest of your look fairly neutral to let a pair of burgundy tights shine.
Belt a Jacket That's Not Meant to Be Belted
Waist-defining: Check. Unexpected and chic: Double check.
Wear Summery Shoes with Socks
Why should you only be able to wear your most fun sandals when it’s above 40 degrees? Skip the gym socks, though, and pick a pair with a bit of sparkle or frill.
Wear a Cardigan Like a Sash
Again, this trick is all about repurposing items you already own to shake up your wardrobe without actually having to add to it.
Wear a Cocktail Dress During the Day
A fancier piece becomes totally daytime appropriate when layered under a casual cardigan in a coordinating color. (Excuse the alliteration.)
