My biggest tip when it comes to putting together an outfit: Choose two things you wouldn’t ever put together. Seems like kind of backwards advice, right? I promise it works.
The same thing goes for interior design. I used to intern at an interior decorating firm, and the owner always said to add one thing into the room that “doesn’t belong” – it ends up being the piece that ties everything together.
So, that brings me to this mesh-top-plaid-pants-combo. Both pieces have a lot going on, but because they’re in neutral color palettes – it works. Try this trick, and I promise you’ll get a lot of compliments on your outfit. It’s almost like people think “woah, I would never even think to wear that together” and that’s what makes your look even stronger.
What do you guys think?
PS. Shameless plug because this was a serious pinch-me moment. I’m on Forever21.com! AHHHHHH.
