In a world of buzzy trends, fashion girls know that making a unique statement is all about standing out in their own way. As runway shows and our favorite bloggers have confirmed, the best way to make an impact this Spring is by mixing and matching — from textures to patterns to eclectic statement pieces. These seemingly simple choices are one of the easiest ways to flaunt your personality, so we've rounded up five outfits that will inspire you to get reacquainted with your wardrobe and start pairing pieces. Read on to learn how to master this trend like every fashion girl in your social feed.
Don't ever let anyone tell you that stepping out in one pattern is a fashion faux pas. The most stylish of girls know the key to pulling off a single-patterned look, like these head-to-toe stripes, is through clever accessorizing. Try breaking up your ensemble with a solid belt or choosing pieces with varying sizes of the same pattern.
To create a winning combo that's sure to be eye-catching, you can always count on juxtaposing contrasting textures. As in the outfit above, a leather skirt balances out a lighter, more feminine patterned top. Finish off your look with some versatile shoes to truly bring it all together.
It may be well past your high school prom, but we're reminding you why it's OK to go monochrome. From your dress to accessories and even your eye shadow, sticking to one color can be a fun way to play up any hue you're loving.
The girlie girls of the fashion world are flocking to ruffles, leaving those with an edgier style feeling left out of the trend. By pairing this ultrafeminine staple look with bold mirrored sunglasses or a touch of athleisure, every type of girl can get in on this trend and make it their own.
Mix and Match: Denim
ICYMI, the denim-on-denim trend isn't going anywhere. The world's top models have shown us exactly how to rock this look, but we're showing you how to mix it up while keeping it uniform. Layering light and dark wash will give your look a bit of variation, while bold embroidery adds a unique twist to any piece.
