In the realm of fashion, balance refers to the harmonious arrangement of different elements in an outfit. It involves finding the right proportion and combination of pieces to create an aesthetically pleasing look. Whether it's mixing fitted and flowy silhouettes, pairing statement and subtle pieces, or blending bright colors with neutrals, balance is what elevates any outfit from ordinary to extraordinary and gives it your own personality! Here are 4 practical tips for incorporating balance in your wardrobe...

Fitted with Flowy: Embrace the Power of Proportions

Balance is all about proportions, and the versatility of fitted and flowy pieces achieves just that. Pair a flowy blouse tucked into a pair of straight leg jeans for a structured, but relaxed look! The contrast between the two elements creates an effortlessly chic and flattering fit for all different body types. To switch it up, pair a fitted top like our mae tee and wide leg jeans. As long as there is balance, your outfit will be more flattering and polished! Incorporating a belt is another way to create a divide from your top and bottoms! Don't be afraid to play around with different fits to create fun and unique styles!

Statement Pieces: Stand out with Subtle Outfits

Statement pieces are the focal points of your outfit, while subtle pieces act as the grounding piece. You don't want to make two pieces fight for the attention, unless you love extremely bold styles (in that case we say go for it)! Make a bold statement with a stunning blouse. Complement the look with classic jeans. This pairing creates a beautiful, yet simple contrast! Maybe you enjoy the bright blazer trend this season. A pop of color is fun, but pair it with a classic tee and a simple pair of jeans! The look is timeless; however; the statement piece adds personality. Understated pieces, such as a classic pair of denim and a neutral top are versatile. Play around with different statement items like shoes, jewelry or hair accessories as well!

Prints with Solids: Creativity in Simplicity

Prints bring life to any outfit, and their combination with solid pieces adds depth and interest for your ensemble. To achieve a balanced look, opt for prints and solids that complement each other in terms of color or theme. For instance, a printed skirt paired with a solid-colored blouse can create a well-coordinated and stylish ensemble. Alternatively, pair a printed blouse with tailored trousers to create a balanced and refined outfit. The key is to let the prints take center stage while providing a canvas of simplicity through the solid elements. If you enjoy more casual outfits, our new flannels are a great way to add prints and textures to your wardrobe!

Brights with Neutrals: Create a Color Symphony

Colors have the power to uplift any outfit. Embrace the beauty of bright hues, but temper them with neutrals to achieve a balanced look. Pair a vibrant top with neutral trousers or a brightly colored jeans with a muted-toned blouse. By adding a pop of color to an otherwise neutral ensemble, it creates a captivating focal point to your outfit. Accessories are another great way to play with color! Neutral tones like tan, ivory, navy, and gray provide the perfect canvas for your vibrant pieces to stand out while preserving a refined look.
