This question I have been thinking about lately. What adds interest to an outfit these days? Yes, I know how a juxtaposition in outfits is often described and I have read a few “rules” and examples. Classy with rugged, dressy with casual, evening wear with jeans, sneakers with suits, masculine with feminine etc.
BUT - all the above “juxtapositions” seem to be the new main rules - no element of surprise. Like dressy midi skirts with chunky boots - a chic and great styling, but a frequent styling. So, does a juxtaposition per definition have to involve an unusual, or unexpected combination? And what ARE the juxtapositions of TODAY? What is a juxtaposition to you? Do you consciously or intuitively build it into your outfits and style?
