The Keys to Low Key Fashion

When it comes to fashion, it can seem like all fashion comes down to is skinny models on runways looking like something out of a sci fi b movie, but that’s simply not the case. There are ways for the regular Joes out there to take a more down to Earth approach to fashion. It’s just a matter of finding the right articles of “normal” clothing to make for a truly great and memorable look. Here are a few suggestions for how to make your mundane wardrobe work for you.

First and foremost, when it comes to the standard jeans and tee shirt combo, you could stand to put a little more thought into it. For instance, if you were to wear shirts that complement the blue of denim, such as a yellow shirt, it would make both colors pop, as they are opposites on the color wheel. Alternatively, depending on the color wheel you’re going by, orange could be the opposite of blue. And, don’t forget to use opposing values. This means that for darker blue jeans, try a lighter yellow shirt, maybe something like canary yellow. You can also try jeans of different colors, such as black, to make a more visually arresting look out of tried and true denim.

Another way to create a more fashionable outfit with normal clothing is to simply have a more discriminating shopping regimen. For example, something along of the lines of the selection of a retailer like Forever 21 would go a long way toward making regular threads into a visually appealing and stylish look that’s sure to turn heads. With these tips in mind, you can show the world that there is stylistic merit to everyday clothing items. Not that you need to prove anything. You just need to look good and feel good about it.
