Green Gardens and Summer Sweaters:
How to pair different styles into a cohesive look
I love summer, but I'm also the biggest fan of sweaters, so why not both? Here's how to mix up two seemingly different styles into one cool theme for the summer.
Keep the colors simple. When you're mixing styles, keeping a basic color pallet is a way to guarantee you won't be walking out with too crazy of a style. I'm definitely more conservative with my colors, that way it's easier to mix and match when traveling and in mixing your own wardrobe without a second thought.
Play with textures. If you choose to keep the colors simple you can make your style look more sophisticated and risky by mix up through either patterns, textures or cuts. With this look specifically I've made this outfit look complicated by wearing a cropped cold shoulder sweater with textured sleeves. While the sweater looks cool, it's breathable and easy to wear for the cooler summer days.
Functionality over everything. While this look would work in cooler summer days, it would probably not work for the cold Chicago winters. When you're mixing styles you need to keep in mind conditions and what your clothes can endure. Styling yourself for each unpredictable weather day, can be tough, but only you know your schedule, activity and weather.
