Elements of Style: Go BOLD

Bring on the BOLD! We love this styling trick, because it allows you to have some fun and step a little outside of your comfort zone. As Stylists, we love sending you pieces that excite you but we also like to push the envelope, just a bit, to expand your style! Introducing a bold colour or print can feel intimidating sometimes. Have you ever looked at someone and wondered how they can pull something off so well?

Here's a secret. The only reason they're "pulling it off" is because they remembered to slather on their confidence! Wearing your clothes with pride and empowerment is our number one rule of advice when you start out on your style journey. Having a positive attitude and an open mind are the building blocks to this concept, so be sure to pack both of those too.

With this in mind, let's talk BOLD combos, and how those can translate into different outfits to inspire you!

Start With Colour!

The simplest way for you to add some BOLD in your wardrobe is to start with colour! Choose a colour that speaks to you and excites you. If you're a neutral loving gal, try stepping outside of that zone for a bit with a bright cobalt blue, or deep rust hue. Starting simply will help ease you into the bold colour palette, and you might even find your new favourite colour!

We love a bold blouse paired with jeans and booties. Easy, simple but with a touch of bold. Try to find the colour that best brings out your eyes or colouring, to really make that piece pop and become the focal point of your outfit. Since you want your top to be the star, stay safe with denim and a neutral shoe.

Mix In A Print!

Now that colour is a part of your life, try mixing in a bold print to switch it up! We love to choose prints that are in theme of our personal colour wheel. This makes it easier to coordinate with our solids and neutrals! Be sure to keep your colour scheme in mind when shopping, or choosing keeps in your latest Frock Box!

Your bold print should be the only print in your outfit, if you really want it to POP! You can use a printed top or tee to achieve this look, or go for a patterned pant or skirt.

Go Big Baby!

We've eased you into introducing bold elements to your style, but if you want to totally bring it, we are HERE for it! Mixing bold colours and prints is a fearless way to add a whole lot of bold to your outfit. This is also why it's a good tip to choose prints within your personal colour wheel, most of what you'll have will all go together anyways!

The scale of print can be small or big, paired with a bold colour within that print, and you are good to go in all of your BOLD glory!

Be sure to bring your confidence with your bold outfit, to really rock the look as well as feel great about yourself!
