9 Fashion Risks Every Woman Should Take

Most people tend to stick to what they know when it comes to their personal style. But this year, consider spicing things up and trying a new trend—or several! After all, there’s no better time than the new year to press the reset button on your look. Click through for sartorial risks we think every fashion girl should try out in 2015.

Try these nine fashion risks that every woman should take!

Not only is red a bold and daring colour, it also symbolises passion and confidence—just another reason why you should try a monochrome look in this fiery shade.

This look is beneficial for two reasons: It highlights your curves, which provides a flattering shape, and enables you to show off your accessorizing skills without sacrificing warmth in the wintertime.

Bold maxi skirts are versatile pieces that can easily be dressed up or down. Look for rich colours and loud patterns that contrast the skirt’s long and flowing shape.

As popular as plaid is, most girls tend to stay away from lumberjack plaid. But we suggest embracing the bold red-and-black print, which instantly gives your outfit a cosy, seasonally appropriate vibe and can be paired with just about anything.

Sure, you run the risk of looking like Catwoman, but that doesn’t sound so bad, does it? An all-over leather look is alluring, form-fitting, and bold—a look that every fashion girl should try at least once.

Wearing this look definitely requires a risk-taking attitude. But just think about it: If you’re sick of wearing boots this winter, but want your feet to stay warm, this fun, youthful trend totally works.

Envelope skirts might not be the biggest fashion risk, but if you’re stuck to your favourite skirt silhouettes (pencil, A-line, and the like) and haven’t tried this flattering style yet, you should!

If you’re looking to add a little more playfulness to your wardrobe, opt for a unexpectedly stylish lip print.

You may think pinstripes are an ‘80s throwback, but they’re back in a big way now. The skinny stripes are the perfect statement print to wear at the office, or even when you’re out on the town.
