Friday 1/12/2024 • Combining half sporty pieces and half classic/minimalist pieces into one outfit is, for me, a no-fail formula for an outfit that feels interesting and personal.
Take this outfit, for example: I love a good jeans-and-sweater look. It’s classic. But instead of continuing down the classic road and styling them with, say, ballet flats and a leather jacket (which would be a very Instagram-approved outfit right now), I took my styling in another direction. I countered the classic vibes with sporty elements — sneakers and a nylon jacket. It’s those *subtle differences in tone and texture* that make the difference.
This formula also influences what I keep in my closet overall. My wardrobe functions really well when I have a classic version of a garment (like Friday’s leather jacket) and then a sporty version of kinda the same thing (like today’s nylon jacket).
So, sporty + classic is my go-to combo. But the beautiful thing about personal style is that it’s, well, personal! So I’d love to hear about yours. What styles do you like to combine to make outfits that feel quintessentially you?
