Top Tips To Being Fashionably Quirky

I love a quirky personality and the style that usually comes with it. A quirky style usually involves mixing textures and patterns, oxfords, funky tights, and fun accessories. Celebs like Solange and Corinne Bailey Rae are know for the quirky cool style and rock it perfectly. However, it is very easy to take it from quirky to crazy if your outfit has a little too much color or pattern and is just too much! Below are my top tips to dressing fashionably quirky for both causal and formal occasions.

Casual, everyday occasions call for oxfords, tights, texture, and all your basics. A pair of oxfords are an alternative to flats that work all year round and come in some many different colors. You can also go for the new trend of more masculine shoes with cool cut outs and chunky heels. Barque and other interesting patterns always look unique when they're on your bottom half since they are usually seen only on the top half which makes it stand out. You may want to try to mix patterns, but keep them "connected" with a common color scheme. Also, a mix of texture such as a silk and a wool create a great visual in any outfit. Lastly, a pair of funky tights will keep your legs warm and detailed whenever your wearing a skirt, dress, or even a pair of shorts and still want a quirky look.

It doesn't take much to advance from a casual quirky look to a more formal attire. A pair of chunky heels will contrast the ordinary pump especially if it comes with straps and buckles. A bag with a pop color is great to go with any style and works best if it goes with a color that is already used in your outfit. A collar makes anything a bit more formal and with the new trend of collar necklaces it is easy to mix and match.
