Open your mind to combinations you have never thought could work. Fashion is all about bold statements and at the moment daring colors and patterns are especially in vogue.
Think about stripes and dots. Something as busy as this done right can have a very fashion forward effect. Floral with plaid are another great option, which is feminine and masculine at the same time. Pastels and fluorescents; a little conservative and hipness that can bring both sugar and spice to any outfit. Consider mixing leather and lace to combine a rocker with a ladylike style.
These are all incredible ideas for updating your wardrobe. Accessories, of course, complement the outfits and pull them together. Be very aware of your choice of shoes, handbags, jewelry and hair accessories, so the look doesn't go overboard and look costumy.
