Fashion is fun. Yes, that's right. I said it. Fashion is ultimately a means of expressing oneself; our outfit choices are symbolic of not only who we are but also how we are feeling. It’s fun to be able to continuously reinvent yourself through new wardrobe investments or rebuild your self-confidence through bold statement shoes. Whether you’re experimenting with the fresh seasonal color palette or playing with new quirky print pairings, fashion is meant to be fun.
The joy in fashion partially stems from the notion that there are simply no rules. You can wear whatever you want, however you want, wherever you want, whenever you want—you get the point. You get to chose what statement you want to make through assembling an ensemble. From floral pants and sequined numbers to new necklines and power suits, there are truly no restrictions. Empowering, right?
Inspired by the runways and our favorite street style icons or vintage finds within our very own closets, new outfit ideas are forever at our fingertips. Behold, the 12 freshest outfit ideas to have fun with that translate to every single age group.
Florals for spring? Groundbreaking. Update your trusty blazer and white T-shirt by styling them with floral pants and white booties to feel fresh for spring.
To beat the boredom of your basic blouse, trade it in for a sparkly metallic number. It's the perfect touch when paired with neutral bottoms without screaming head-to-toe glitter.
Style tip: Swap your booties or loafers for thong-toe sandals to really hit refresh.
The LBD is universal. Yes, it morphs into different silhouettes and fabrics, but it is an innate wardrobe staple. This season, we have seen necklines become a tool to refresh any look. Opt for more playful and irregular necklines in your LBD, and pair it with printed tights for a little pick-me-up.
It's been proven: Opposites do attract. In fact, when paired properly, they create the perfect proportions. Experiment with the pairings of different fits that already exist in your closet to re-create this look.
The Bermuda-short suit is here to stay. We saw it flood the streets this New York Fashion Week, and I have to say, I'm here for it. Serving as a solution when you're tired of your typical pantsuits, this new proportion is an incredibly cool wardrobe refresh.
Style tip: Reduce the bagginess of the suit by cinching your waist with a micro-belt.
Mixing prints: It's a tale as old as time but also a trustworthy tactic when updating your wardrobe. From cheetah and tie-dye to florals and plaid, there are truly no wrong answers. And don't forget: Have some fun when mixing and matching prints.
Brighten up. Be bold. It doesn't matter what age you are, being bold in your outfit choice will always build confidence. Try not only a bold color but a statement bag as well for the ultimate look.
Shop the matching Mid Rise Tailored Trousers ($79).
The roughness of leather paired with the delicateness of a pastel color actually creates a pretty powerful ensemble.
Style tip: Try not to add too many pastel colors into the mix. Stick to two in order to achieve this look.
Another emerging trend: smocking details. Not ready to shy away from all black? That's just fine. Feel fresh in an all-black ensemble by updating your choice of fabric manipulation to smocking.
Style tip: Contrast the sweet details of smocking by styling the dress with chunky boots.
Nothing says fresh like a sleeves top. It's time to ditch your winter knits and go for something a bit airier. Elevate the look with pumps or take the casual route with loafers. The choice is yours.
Floral frocks can do no wrong. They have proven to be both ageless and season-less. So have fun this spring giving your floral number a refresh with statement earrings and an unexpected pop of white.
A quirky combo indeed. From Celine to Marc Jacobs, we saw the pussy-bow blouse make quite the return on the runways this past season. Have fun playing with different bow proportions, and dress it down by styling it with jeans and fresh sneakers.
