CONTRAST












JEANS - ACNE STUDIOS
BRALET - TOPSHOP
BOMBER - FOREVER 21

Quite opposite from my last look, I'm back with another boyish styling opportunity - and these are often my favorite! While I do enjoy a challenge in terms of putting looks together, on my off or casual days I tend to default to an outfit that looks something like this. I feel most comfortable in things that are easy to throw on, loose-fitting, and fine to travel in. The combination above happens to tick all those boxes for me! The thing I love most about this outfit is that I took the liberty of playing with some colors and louder prints that I usually wouldn't put together, and to me the finished product reads fun, young, and fresh for spring time. 

I love a good floral pattern, and I couldn't resist buying this men's Insight shirt when I saw it on the sale racks at Urban Outfitters some time ago. I then paired it with a bralet to add a sporty feeling, but the star of the show for me are these Acne Studios boyfriend jeans. They're a tad too big, but I knew I had to make them work when I saw how discounted they were! I scooped them up in a sale from Need Supply Co, a really amazingly curated store in Richmond, VA. I never thought I'd be able to afford a pair of these, so I grabbed them with almost no hesitation - boyfriend jeans are also one of my favorite silhouettes, so I know I'll be getting a lot of use. I really had a good time adding in this pink bomber (yes, you read that right - I actually own a pink bomber) and the fuscia Nikes. While everything isn't in the exact same color family, they're close enough that the contrast between the shades makes the outfit that much more punchy.

Do you guys like a loose, androgynous look? If it's something you haven't done before, would you try it? Let me know your thoughts below, and I'll see you in my next post!
