As we near the end of December, I look back at this wonderful 2017, and think…wow. I have had so many great experiences, and met so many amazing people! I have also found some killer pieces to add to my closet! Bright colours, fun patterns, and cozy everything. However, where you have bright colours and fun patterns…there is always a difficult piece to style…

Du North Designs has become my regular hub for cute and fun leggings. These patterned leggings that I am sporting today are probably the most out there thing that I own (at least, for now). I say that with the utmost sincerity, because this pattern is eye-catching for sure. Most people would take a look and think…where, how, why? I think they are so much fun and such a change of pace. So here is how I made these wild leggings fit with my regular wardrobe…
When I first looked at them, I didn’t know how I would style them for a styled look. They are super cozy, and perfect for lounging around the house, running errands, or even sitting in classes all day long. However, I wanted to make them POP! After countless minutes of running around my room, going through everything I own…I finally looked at the colours.
There are so many colours in these leggings, but there are some super dominant colours as well. Blues, maroon, a bit of orange. So I finally thought, sweater on top (because we already have cozy style going), and maybe a third piece on top of that! Perfect – grey cozy sweater, and then I had this maroon vest to pair on top. I really like this combo because the top half of the look doesn’t take away from the fun pattern in the leggings, but it also doesn’t clash with it either!
Now, due to the unbelievably cold weather, I didn’t make it through shooting this outfit without some warmth from my big winter coat. However, after I got back into my cozy bed to edit, I realized…the winter jacket takes the look to the next level! Immediately I got ski slope, alpine vibes and wished I had photographed more shots styled with the coat.
It really doesn’t take much to make a crazy piece look great. Pull out the colours and make sure you keep that difficult item as the main focus of the styled look. You may get an ultra cute, ski bunny look without even knowing it (haha or maybe that’s just me!)
