5 Style Tips Stolen From Our Favorite Bloggers

It can be easy to fall into a sartorial rut: the same boyfriend blazer with those colorblocked heels, that statement necklace always with the usual throw-on-and-go shirtdress, the go-to striped shirt worn three days out of seven. However, another daily habit — our online stroll through our favorite blogs — can remedy this stale style routine in a snap (or rather, click).
Championing combos we normally avoid and daring to accessorize in ways we never even thought of, these five fashion bloggers have given us plenty of inspiration to shake up, switch out, and in some cases, just completely torch our old habits.
Consider these easy-to-follow lessons in style the next time your hand reaches for the usual suspects in your closet. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the result.

Oversized Everything — Is bigger always better? Debatable. But it sure is much more bold. Pairing a too-loose top with a mega statement-making necklace (that's some tooth, huh?) this look is casual and edgy, with just the right amount of room for you to wear the clothes, and not the other way around.

Girly Mixed Prints — Consider this simple tiny-polka-dot print the neutral in this lesson on mixing prints. Pair it with a sweet, punchy pattern to really zhuzh up your look.

Dare To Heavily Distress — We're far removed (mostly) from the drastically ripped jeans we sported in high school. But this distressed skirt is like the graduated version of the trend — laid back but ladylike with small, bright accessories and a killer set of stielletos. Even if you don't go as far as A Portable Package did (hello, upper thigh!), a little bit of wear-and-tear can go a long way.

Toughen Up Floral Pants — Don't let flowers make you feel like a total softy. These blooms can really pop with a touch of heavy-metal wrist wear and a badass (faux) leather vest.

Knot A T-Shirt For Work — Make your in-office gear feel less stuffy with your favorite lived-in, super-soft tee. Thanks to the adorable, neat knot, no one will suspect you wear the same shirt to bed on occasion. (Cute pooch optional, but very much preferred.)
