Black and white. Prints and solids. A little contrast makes everything better, especially fashion-wise. That's why we're so in love with the latest lookbook from retailer LOFT. Each ensemble expertly mixes dressy and low-key pieces and the results are absolutely fabulous.
In fact, we were so inspired by these outfits that we decided to create our own versions of three looks -- for less! Scroll down to see them all:
1. Multi Stripes + Wide Leg Pants
By mixing various shades of blue, LOFT shows us that monochromatic outfits don't have to be one note. We went casual with our version, so tuck a multicolor striped tee into a pair of wide-leg jeans. A faux suede moto jacket ups the cool factor, while ankle-strap flats keep things comfy. For the finishing touch, accessorize with minimalist stud earrings.
2. Velvet Dress + Boyfriend Cardigan
This is such a cute way to style down your party dress. Like LOFT, we opted for a velvet dress, but in a pretty mauve hue. Layer on a long, cozy cardigan, then go bold with trendy sock boots. A few stackable rings add a hint of sparkle and complete the look.
3. Floral Sweater + Metallic Skirt
Metallics were pretty much made to wear during the holidays, and we love how LOFT paired a metallic mini with a flower-adorned sweater. Our interpretation styles a textured skirt with a bell-sleeve sweater for a more fashion-forward silhouette. Slip on a pair of pumps in a gorgeous forest green hue, then opt for an eye-catching statement necklace. Don't forget the deep, moody lip color!
