Five Quirky Combos You’ll Want To Try Now

Written by Deepa SajnaniJun 06, 2014
Let’s face it – fashion has NO rules. And isn’t that something we just love? While we’ve seen everything from polkas and florals to stripes and checks this season, conforming to norms is one thing we are not crazy about doing. This month at BeBEAUTIFUL, we challenged ourselves to pull off some unconventional separates that may seem impossible to pair with our safe choices. Click through to uncover just how you can give ‘mix and match’ a whole new spin.

Our quirky separate: A Headdress
Our spin on it: We used this floral scarf for a simple, no-brainer college look. Working with a pair of basic ripped jeans and a chic cut-out white shirt, we show you how a gorgeous scarf can be knotted into a headdress – something you’d probably not think of wearing on campus, but is completely unique and scores full style points!

Our quirky separate: A Pyjama Jacket
Our spin on it: Ordinarily, you wouldn’t think of wearing a floosy pyjama jacket to the club. We worked the look by pairing this flowy number with printed pants and adding a touch of glam with a statement neckpiece and a contrasting oxblood velvet clutch.

Our quirky separate: Pyjama Pants
Our spin on it: When it comes to work wear, we hardly inch further from our tried and done trouser-meets-shirt combo. Change that up by teaming a pair of lax pyjama pants, which may sound outrageous on a Monday morning, but look absolutely chic with this powder blue coat and a tartan blouse.

Our quirky separates: A Crop Top and Maxi Skirt
Our spin on it: Think weddings and we’re instantly worrying about the burden of heavy lehengas and saris! Not anymore. We took this beautiful cut-out crop top and a trailing maxi skirt to replace the choli and skirt, and made it wedding worthy by draping a sequinned embroidered net dupatta. A pair of kundan earrings is all the ethnic bling you need to make your way to that soirée.

Our quirky separate: Sequinned Shorts
Our spin on it: We know that you always have to style bling with caution. Trust us when we say that you can pull this off to your first day at college. How? It’s easy – keep everything else minimal and casual. A knotted denim shirt, printed plimsolls and a large tote are all you need to make those sparkly shorts work for you.

Changing my career to fashion at the age of 27 was a risk that I'm glad I took! I don't think there is any substitute for hard work. I can be overly shy and self conscious one day and feel like I can conquer the world the next. You have to try my caramel pudding and chicken soup and don't even dare playing charades with me—I'm super competitive. I love what I do and am always looking for a way to take it up a notch!
