One of the unexpected ways to get creative when styling an outfit is mixing and matching contrasting elements—whether in patterns, shades, or textures, the look emanates bold sartorial confidence. Through this edit, we'll be giving you a master class on how to work the striking look for those days when you can’t decide which one to wear.

Close-knit Glow

Texture is the easiest lever to pull when you’re running low on styling inspiration. Try combining one of the same woven elements with different sizes and materials at the same time, like this bright orange Fanta knit dress from Vivetta with JW Pei's leather cobalt blue woven bag. This look is the ultimate in terms of shade and texture.

Magnetic Force

The phrase ‘opposites attract’ doesn’t just apply to dating. Giving the sweet and girly element a toughened-up edge will keep the look from looking too saccharine. Wear a combo of feminine pinks, a layer of denim jacket to ground the whole look, and accessories in contrasting colors—wardrobe juxtaposition skills achieved.

Better in Bold

Skip subtle pieces and stick with bold statement items. While combining different prints and bold colors in one look might not sound like they’d work together, they actually look modern and cool. Need proof? Look at this Tee Library's printed shirt and MSGM's sports bra combination plus an electric blue JW Pei handbag.


Rebel At Heart

We have a sweet spot for black or white printed clothes because they go really well together with bright colors. This MSGM shirt will make your heart flutter — the black base makes the perfect canvas to bring out those electric prints and make Enfold's green trousers extra popping.
