Ways to Mix Up Your Style Including Custom Leather Ideas

July 11, 2018

If you feel like your closet is a little stale, you can make a few changes using some of the things you already have to mix things up! Whether you are looking to try some of the latest trends, or liven up your style, there’s plenty you can do. From using or buying versatile pieces and color coordination, to layering and custom leather pieces—use some of these tips and techniques to breathe new life into your closet. 

Find Versatile Pieces

One way to save money is to have a few go-to, versatile pieces of clothing that you can mix and match. These will be the staples that you can wear during an afternoon shopping along the 16th Street Mall, or for a romantic dinner date at the Bistro Vendome. Don’t underestimate the power of the following pieces:
● Black or brown leather jacket: Sleek and timeless, the leather jacket can be worn with a pair of blue, skinny jeans and sneakers, or as an accent with a dress and heels.
● White tank top: A great white tee is a perfect undershirt (…possibly under that black leather jacket or bright-colored blazer), or great on its own with a statement necklace.
● Striped shirt: A plain, black and white (or any color combination of your preference) will literally go with anything. Use it under a jacket, stand alone in black pants and heels, or with a casual, flowy skirt!

Color Coordinating and Schemes

Don’t feel like you aren’t the best at matching colors? Use this simple trick: use colors that are the opposite of each other on the color wheel.  For instance, mix blue and orange, purple and yellow, or red and green.

Layering Basics

Another important way to mix up your style is through layering. This isn’t the same as layering before going on a hike in the winter. This is layering that strategically uses different pieces to create a look. Start your layer with a base, such as a solid color tee. Keep your color scheme in mind for the layers you will put on top. Add your next layer and do not be afraid to mix up the fabric. Use jewelry that will accent your pieces. Don’t forget how important it can be to rock a great belt. In some situations, especially with a dress, you can pair a plain, flowy dress with an eccentric belt and statement necklace.

Custom Leather              

If you have a leather jacket that needs some attention, did you know you can visit a local leather shop to customize it? This is first a good way to make sure your jacket fits you. Up your fashion game and make sure you have a fitted jacket that complements you. Next, talk with them about ways to make it shine if it is looking dull. Add new buttons, zipper, and/or accents throughout that will bring it back to life.
