This week’s feature look gives you tips on how to work color and pattern into a casual and stylish look. Adding bright colors and bold patterns may be a tough task for some, so our stylist approved look adds color with our Joseph Marc glasses and a funky pattern shirt from Publish brand.
THE CORE OUTFIT
When asked for advice on styling a wardrobe, we usually say three to five tops to one pair of pants, because switching the top can change the whole vibe to the look. We chose a basic pair of blue pants from Band of Outsiders that you can dress down with hi-top sneakers or dress up with a pair of sleek oxfords. A comfortable black or gray cardigan is a staple to layer on top of pattern shirts, and a structured coat will go a long way year round.
The key piece here is the pattern shirt from Publish brand, with stylish detailing on the pocket and buttons highlighting the contrast between the stripes and solid colors. For those looking to add a bit of pattern to their spring look, start with something like this piece in a dark color featuring stripes or checkers.
Our Joseph Marc glasses are an instant style refresher and are a safe way to experiment with adding color to your spring style. The fact that they’re a lighter color than other pieces in the outfit provides nice contrast and helps them standout as a stylish detail.
Add in other subtle yet stylish items like this slim David Yurman royal cord bracelet and a durable Herschel laptop bag and you’re set for an on or off day. Work a fun pair of shoes into the mix like these Converse X John Varvatos sneakers.
