Making the Ultimate Fashion Statement

Being creative in the world of fashion is the best way to ensure that you are making a statement and this can be as wacky, as sexy, as funky, as casual or as formal as you choose. Fashions from casual 80s-style leggings teamed with a sexy skirt through to punk chic leather trousers teamed with a relaxed-yet-fun off the shoulder cashmere top create whole new trends that don’t fall into any particular category.

Leggings Combinations

Leggings have heartily proved their worth in fashion and they are one of the most versatile items of clothing that you can have in your wardrobe. Couple up a pair of brightly coloured leggings with a skirt that can be short or long depending on the look you are going for and you can get a trendy 80s look that was reborn in the 2000s. While wearing a cashmere jumper with a pair of black or plain-coloured leggings is a whole different look that has a rather more conservative appeal.

Check out these common leggings combinations that offer completely different looks:

  • Leggings plus mini-skirts, knee-length skirts or shorts
  • Leggings plus casual cashmere jumper
  • Leggings plus smart blouse
  • Leggings plus knee high or ankle boots
  • Leggings plus trainers

Many choose to use leggings to get a casual look by wearing trainers and a vest top when they go jogging while others use leggings for a very sexy look that can be had with the use of knee high or even thigh high boots. Plush cashmere cardigans or loose jumpers can be worn with leggings to create a relaxed style but what you accessorise with can also make a massive difference to a look.

The Timeless Appeal of Jeans

Jeans are another fabulous item of clothing that can be used to create various looks and styles, from tight jeans worn with boots for a sexy style through to baggy jeans worn with a t-shirt for a cool surf-chick style. Mixing and matching jeans with various styles of footwear, tops and even accessories can make entirely different styles and it is easy to use different colours to make even bolder fashion statements, so if you are looking for a wacky look, buy a pair of orange jeans and team them with a green top and pink flip flops…

Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise

Mixing and matching clothes is an easy way to form new styles but you can go even further with the mix-and-match trend by using various accessories as well. Hats are a fun way to jazz up an outfit with baseball caps giving a sporty look, while a trilby hat offers a fashionable edge to an outfit.

Here are some of the most common accessories available to make different looks for different outfits:

  • Bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings
  • Hats and belts
  • Bags and shoes
  • Hair clips and bands
  • Toe rings and anklets

The style of your accessories will determine the overall style of your entire look. If you wear casual jeans with a delicate cashmere cardigan you will be rocking a fairly conventional look, but if you choose to fold your jeans up, wear a pair of sexy ankle boots, carry a designer handbag complete with endless silver jewelry and a chunky belt, you will create a far more modern style.

Being fashionable is mainly about personal style and the idea behind mixing and matching is that you get to avoid being type cast or labelled as conforming to any one particular style. Rock your leggings and cashmere sweater with flat shoes and no accessories one day and change your whole style by wearing the same clothes with dangly earrings, sexy thigh high boots and a funky hat the next.

Mix and match your wardrobe and have fun with your style…
