There was a point in my life where I have always liked wearing a modern look with a touch of southern style to it. The whole ensemble does not only exude comfort but also displays a stylish flair.
Pulling off a southern style with a modern look is as easy as 1-2-3. Here are a few great suggestions:
Take note of the color scheme for the outfit. Use earth tones leaning on the umber, brown, tan, and orange color palette. Or better yet, add a pop of vibrant colors that complement well with each other. The striking hues will make you really stand out from the crowd.
Play around with texture. Pair soft knits with tough denim. Or do it the other way around by donning a denim jacket or vest with a flowy skirt.
Express your personality. Wear something eyelet style or make use of florals or botanicals to project a more feminine yet fun vibe. You can just play around with asymmetrical cuts for a fresh take on the look.
It is all about the print. You can also go for plaids or go for ginghams – you can never go wrong with these prints. A flannel shirt is a must-have.
Accessorize! Depending on your wardrobe and the occasion, a dressy pair of sandals or flip-flops will do. A sturdy pair of boots could also work well with any outfit. Feeling inspired yet? Go for a pair that exhibits technique, craftsmanship, and quality put in the leather goods that would definitely win you over. You may opt to wear pearls (be it earrings, necklaces, or stacks of bracelets) over a casual outfit. Trying on beanies and hats is a good addition too!
You can take one or mix and match these ideas. There really is something for everyone. At the end of the day, fashion is all about feeling good inside out. So dress up nicely and comfortably.
