Trend Alert: Mixology

Say so long to asking yourself, "Do these work together?" and welcome to the style trend of mixology – pairing the unlikely in order to create “talk-worthy” outfits in your wardrobe. The easiest way to transition into this trend is mixing different fabrics within your own closet. Leather + lace, jean + silk, cargo + fur {the list goes on} are a simple way to create texture and add originality to your outfit. Men can also partake in this trend by mixing corduroy + flannel and wool + denim.

Inside the Style-Architects office, one of our favorite mixed pairings is piecing feminine and masculine separates together. This great casual-urban look can be as simple as grabbing your favorite fitted blazer, putting on a pair of  loose boyfriend jeans and stepping into your favorite leather booties.

Try it out, get creative and remember, mixology is not just for your favorite summer cocktail, it can infuse your wardrobe through pairing the unlikely.
