Highs and Lows, the Secret Ingredients for Stylish Outfits

August 21

Have you ever seen a super-stylish woman and wondered just ​what it is t​hat makes her outfit seem so polished and effortless all at once? Well, the trick stylists use to create that “cool girl chic” look is a little trick employing the use of “highs” and “lows” in every outfit. This means a sleek ponytail with a frilly dress (rather than long flowing curls), or a cute pair of sneakers with a floral skirt (skipping the cutesy heels). It’s all about balance… just because you are wearing a blazer does not mean you need to pair it with trousers and a pair of penny loafers. A blazer with a soft and comfy band tee, a plaid schoolgirl skirt, and an easy pair of ankle boots is infinitely cooler than going “full suit.” Try it out! It may require you going slightly out of your comfort zone, but it will be fun and you’ll be shocked to see how quickly you will feel more stylish, and mixing up your wardrobe with what you already have is a surefire way to inspire you to pull out some of your lesser-worn pieces again.
