"Clashy chic"

I like to mix up my themes when dressing, meaning I like to mix high end pieces with bargain finds, dressy pieces with casual pieces, girly pieces with edgy pieces, etc.  It keeps your look from looking too monotonous and adds a little interest.  Plus, it's a great way to create a great deal of outfits from pieces you may already have!

For this outfit, I took a grungy band tee (yay, Sheryl Crow!) and added a glam statement necklace.  The two pieces don't naturally fall in the same category, but I like the clash that results.  "Clashy chic," if you will. ;)

Don't feel limited -- mix a pretty cocktail dress with a denim jacket and flats for a new way to wear the dress you probably only pull out once a year.  Or, try to put a pair of flashy pumps with jeans a basic tee. 

Have you tried this?  What are some of your favorite clashy combinations?


  1. I love the idea of pairing a girly necklace with a graphic tee. So cool!

  2. This is such a cute casual look! I love an unexpected pairing like a graphic tee with a pretty necklace!
