3 Simple Tips To Create Eye-Catching Outfits

 
Happy Monday to all of you! Hope you are having a fabulous week. As you probably noticed, if you have been following me for a while, my style is feminine and I always like to add touches or mix different elements to add visual interest to my looks. Let’s say that if I had to define my personal style in three words, I would say: feminine, chic and clean.

I love feminine pieces but do you ever feel like you love a garment so much but sometimes it feels a bit too girly for you to wear.  That is exactly what tends to happen to me, and I realize that something is missing to make my outfit pop! And here is when contrast comes to the rescue. By creating contrast between your pieces, you’ll definitely create more eye-catching outfits. 

Feeling kind of lost? Don’t worry! I have 3 effective elements that will definitely help to achieve that and create a cool outfit. 

Before jumping right into it, let me remind you of the law of attraction. “Opposites attract” This rule can be applied in the fashion world. In order to create contrast between your pieces, look for the opposite. For example, mixing white with black, mix feminine with an edgy style, combining warm and cold color palettes, etcetera. Long story short, it’s all about mixing patterns, colors, textures, and silhouettes.

1) Mix soft tones or pastels with dark colors. The easiest way to create high-contrast outfits is by pairing light clothes with dark clothes. So instead of wearing white, pastels, or soft tones, and look like cotton candy, go for something more dramatic, black is the way to go. Black always dominates when creating a polished and more modern look.

2) Create a layout based on different shapes, lengths, textures, patterns. This is a great way to take any outfit to the next level, from boring to a kick-ass combo. You can pair lace with leather, for example, or casual and sporty pieces with more tailored ones or even mixing ruffles with stripes.

3) Colors play a big role when building a cool eye-catching outfit. It seems kind of complex to understand the theory of color. I don’t want to move into all of the color theory, better leave that for another post.  I just want to give an easy and basic idea to get to the point when creating contrast between your garments.

We have the hues, which are the variations of the three basic colors: blue, red and, yellow. When black is gradually added to these hues, that’s when navy, burgundy, emerald green, for example, come to the scene.

Take a quick look at the color wheel above. When you pair and mix colors that are opposite to each other (cool vs warm) you achieve a high contrast effect. (yellow + violet, blue+orange….) If you don’t want to take a big risk, you can start little by little, incorporating an opposite color accessory.

So let’s set a goal. Step outside the box when it comes to your style. Be creative, and mix different pieces that you like to create a masterpiece of your own.

¡Feliz inicio de semana! Seguramente habras notado, si es que me sigues de tiempo atrás que mi estilo siempre es un tanto femenino y siempre disfruto agregando toques o mezclando elementos para añadir interes visual a mis looks. Digamos que si tuviera que definir mi estilo en tres palabras, simplemente diria: femenino, chic y limpio.

Amo las prendas femeninas, sin embargo no se si te haya pasado que a veces estan demasiado femeninas por no decir cursis para llevarlas por si solas. Eso suele pasarme al pararme freente al espejo y percatarme que algo falta para realzar mi vestimenta. Y aqui es cuando el contraste viene al rescate. Al crear contraste entre tus piezas le darás ese condimento que le falta a tu look para hacerlo ya sea mas llamativo, original o divertido.

¿Un poco perdida en esto de crear contraste? ¡No te preocupes! Tengo 3 sencillos tips que te ayudaran a crear looks mucho mas originales. Lista?!

-Los opuestos se atraen: esta ley de la atracción también se aplica a la moda. Para crear contraste entre tus prendas busca los opuestos. Por ejemplo, mezcla negro con blanco, piezas femeninas con aquellas de estilo edgy, combina paletas de color en tonos frios y calidos…. En este caso estoy mezclando un saco en tono pastel y suave con negro para crear un contraste, en lugar de llevar dos tonos suaves o blanco en la parte inferior. Nota como el negro resalta creando un look mas moderno. Una manera muy sencilla de crear contraste es mezclando colores suaves con prendas oscuras.

-Crea tu look incorporando diversas formas, texturas, estampados, etc.. Esta es una buena manera de llevar cualquier look a otro nivel, de un look simple a uno mas original. Puedes por ejemplo mezclar encaje con piel o prendas casuales o deportivas con otras mas estructuradas y formales, inclusive mezclar olanes con rayas.

-Los colores juegan un papel importante cuando se trata de crear looks llamativos. Entender la teoria del color parece mas complicado de lo que en realidad es, pero dejemos ese tema para otro post. Unicamente quiero enfatizar y dar una idea muy basica para lograr nuestro objetivo de crear contraste entre nuestras prendas.

Tenemos las tonalidades, que son la variacion que resulta de combinar los tres colores basicos: azul, rojo y amarillo. Cuando el negro es gradualmente incorporado a estos tonos es cuando el azul marino o navy blue, borgoña, verde esmeralda… aparecen en la escena.

Checa la imagen con la rueda de colores. Cuando se mezclan colores opuestos entre si ( frios vs cálidos) se obtiene un alto contraste. ( amarillo+morado,  azul+naranja…) Si no deseas arriesgarte mucho puedes empezar poco a poco incorporando accesorios en color opuesto.

Asi que atrévete y sal un poco de tu zona de comfort y dale un twist a tu estilo. Se creativa y mezcla diferentes prendas que te gusten para lograr una pieza maestra de ti misma.
