Aesthetics have become increasingly popular in the fashion world in recent years, but it’s not just street-style stars and celebrities who are getting in on the trend—aesthetic fashion can be found in many cities and many different styles. From high fashion to casual wear, these outfits prove that when it comes to looks, you don’t have to sacrifice your personal style to conform to societal standards of beauty. These are the top 9 artsy aesthetic outfits of the moment!
1) Off Shoulder Midi Skirt
What’s better than a simple off-the-shoulder top? An off-the-shoulder midi skirt. The midi-length makes it a bit chicer than your average denim skirt, and you can pair it with a plain black bra for an extra effortless feel. Also works well with athletic leggings! (via Polyvore).
2) Plaid Shirt – White Tee – Leather Jacket
A wardrobe staple for both men and women, there are countless ways to wear a plaid shirt. Pair it with a white tee for something really laid back or dress it up with a leather jacket to elevate your outfit. This is definitely one of those add various pieces in your closet!
3) Lace Crop Top – Cropped Denim Skirt
Layers are one of my favorite things to wear in summer. I’m obsessed with a good pair of flared pants and a crop top. This lace crop top is feminine and sexy, which makes it perfect for pairing with casual bottoms such as skinnies or denim.
4) Flower Heels
It’s no secret that flower power is in full effect. We love these funky heels by Amazon—they are perfect for Springtime. Floral heels have been a hit among a variety of designers from Rebecca Minkoff to Christian Louboutin! You can find floral shoes in just about any color you could want: white, yellow, red, and even black. These flirty shoes will keep your feet feeling light as a feather all Spring and Summer long! The best part?
5) White Blouse and Jeans with Crossbody Bag
We love crossbody bags, as they’re easy to carry around and great for accessorizing a look. This white blouse and jeans combo with a black crossbody bag are super stylish and one of our favorite go-to looks when we want to feel extra artsy. If you’re looking for extra flair, add some jewelry like these statement earrings or an arty pendant necklace.
6) Cap Sleeve Maxi Dress
There’s no denying that a white maxi dress is one of the summer’s most versatile staples, but if you’re looking to add an artsy edge to your wardrobe, consider purchasing a cap sleeve maxi dress. This style will keep you feeling cool and comfortable all season long—not to mention it looks great with Birkenstocks and bare feet! ( And for more summer fashion ideas… ).
7) Black Tank Top – Striped Trousers – Red Flats
With its minimalistic black-and-white design, this top is perfect for pairing with bolder items like patterned leggings or high-contrast shoes. It also looks great under a suit jacket, providing just enough contrast without being overpowering. This tank top fits true to size for most women. To keep it from clinging to your midsection when it’s hot out, try wearing a white camisole underneath.
8) Beaded Draped One Shoulder Dress
The best part about draping is that it’s so much more than a trend; it’s an art form. Whether you opt for ruffles, chiffon, or velvet (our personal favorite), one thing is for sure: Draped clothing has infinite potential to look different with every new material and cut. Here are looks to help inspire your next draped outfit.
9) Fitted Blazer over a Maxi Skirt
It’s starting to get a little warm out, so why not try layering up your look with a fitted blazer over a maxi skirt? In case you’re wondering, I tried it myself and felt pretty amazing. It feels like that kind of outfit you could wear on your way to class or to an interview; so depending on where you are in life at any given time, it’s really versatile! And if you feel like being bold, then give some color blocking a try.
