4 Trendy Outfit Combos that were a Big No Before

Sometimes, the most difficult task is to pair a stunning dress with equally stunning footwear or your favorite crop top with something that you haven’t worn before. Your closet becomes such a mess during these situations because, of course, nobody wants to look fashionably unacceptable. Looking good is now more important to some than arriving on a meeting on time.

fashionHowever, as we all know, the world of fashion is constantly changing. The trendy outfits today may be considered unacceptable some years later and those outfits that earned disgusted looks before were actually on top of stylists’ fashionable lists now. This is a reminder that we should not be afraid to go bold. Go bold now and be trendy with these 4 outfits that were a big NO before.

1. Dress and Sneakers

These two are like sweet and savory foods combined. It is not something that you will most likely pick on the menu on a special date night. However, if you are with your adventurous peers, you will surely give it a try. Dress and sneakers are the perfect combination for girls who cannot stand high heels. If you are like those girls who don’t wear dresses just because of high heels, go and celebrate!

You can definitely match your flow y dresses with pastel colored sneakers. Choose cute printed sneakers for floral dresses. If you love the gothic style, your new best friend will be tribal sneakers. Choosing sneakers over stilettos, pumps, or boots is not only stylish, but also convenient and comfy! You can rock a dress paired with sneakers anywhere you go.

2. Crop Top and Blazer

Why wear blazer over your gorgeous crop top? Why not? I would not accept reasons like: it is summer and hot as hell, the blazer will cover the design of my crop top, or it is not sexy and stylish. Firstly, there are blazers, such as chiffon, that are designed for the warm weather. Secondly, the blazer will not cover, but accentuate your crop top. Lastly, try it out first and you will see how sexy and extremely stylish you will look like.

Don’t you know that Kendall Jenner and Vanessa Hudgens were among the celebrities who started this trend? Both of them wore blazers over crop tops on music festivals. Just as long as you know the basics, you can never go wrong with this outfit combo.

If you work in an office, wear a simple turtle-neck crop top together with high-waist pants or slacks and grab your usual office blazer. Whoever said you cannot be stylish while working? Make this look edgier by taking a slightly oversized blazer.

If you are heading onto a casual gathering with friends, pair this outfit combo with simple shorts. You can add your on-the-go belt to look more put-together.

3. T-shirt and Neck Tie

Now before raising you eyebrows at me, I am not talking about neck ties that you use with business suits and/or dress shirts. I am talking about the revolutionary neck ties that are truly intended for t-shirts. You may now buy some white shirts. You have a bunch of tees neck tie to choose from online!

T-shirt with neck tie is a stylish and brilliantly combined outfit for casual business meetings, semi-formal events and night-outs with your officemates, teammates, girlfriend, or family. Another idea: if you are starting out a business or an organization, a t-shirt with neck tie can be your unique uniform. Have the tie customized with your business name or logo.

Just keep in mind some rules. There should be a give and take between your t-shirt and tie. If the tie is printed, the t-shirt is best to be plain or vice versa. I would suggest that you go for a plain t-shirt then make a statement with your tie. You can use this look, guys, to attract girls. Girls can, of course, rock this cool look, too.

4. Mismatched Pair of Footwear

Before: “Why are you wearing mismatched shoes? What are you thinking?”

Now: “Wow! You are totally rocking those mismatches shoes! Where did you get them? I need a pair!”

If you have not heard about this mismatched pair of shoes yet, you are unfortunately getting out of trend. Before you whine and say you will look stupid with a pair of different shoes, hear me out. Mismatched shoes are the newest innovations on footwear wherein the shoes are not identical but still have a uniform theme.

For example, both shoes are red but they have different details. The other one has a blue ribbon on the side while the second half of the pair has a butterfly in the middle. Another example is both shoes have the same style and design but have different colors. There are also mismatched socks available to accentuate perfectly with these mismatches shoes.

I am actually just waiting for printed top and printed bottom to be trendy! That will be such a bizarre pair, but why should we assume now when what once bizarre became sought after today!

I am sure you are excited to head onto the mall now that you have learned new trendy outfit combinations. This is a great time to revamp your style! An extra tip: do not be afraid to try on new things but have a signature style of your own, too. Remember, fashion is one way to showcase who you truly are for the whole world to see.
