3 Top Tips on Creating a Unique Outfit

Outfit Details

Pick a Statement Piece and Style Your Look Around It

In this case, my statement piece are these duo checkered pants that I picked up at Nordstrom. They have a flattering, loose fitted style that I thought was dramatic enough to carry a very simple look. I always style all my outfits this way; I pick a piece or a color that I am feeling and build my entire look around it. This way, it makes it so much easier to have a cohesive flow, thus an easier way to create that signature, unique outfit you have been searching for.

Lucky for us, statement pants are trending this season. Loud graphic prints, bold checkerboard and abstract designs are flying off the shelves like hot cakes. To tackle such an adventurous item, keep the rest of your outfit simple by styling with solid colors to balance the pattern out.

Warm, Neutral Pieces

Choose to Wear an Outfit that is Within the Same Color Pallet

I love this tip because I practice this a lot! I generally love to go with tones that are very flattering for my skin tone. If you have not done so already, try to figure out what colors work best for your skin tone. So if I am ever in a hurry, I usually just put together a look with these shades to create a unique outfit. To make it even easier, I LOVE wearing monotone looks. Super classy and easy.

Unique Pieces

Play with Shapes and Cuts that You are Normally Not Immediately Drawn to

My favorite with about shopping at Nordstrom is that, there is a wide variety of clothing and brands to chose from. So I love using that to my advantage. I love playing with different cuts, fits and fabrics. It is so easy to do with all the items at the same store. I usually start off by looking at the pieces that are different- I try those on first, just so I can get a sense of what new and fresh pieces would look like on me. This is a fun way to keep all your looks fresh and unique.
