GURU Spotlight: Boxy Styles

13 Jan

Boxy silhouettes are an emerging trend! We’re seeing this cut for winter and it is sure to springboard into warmer weather (yes, it’s not that far off in the future!).

Have you seen the Pretty Little Liars Collection at Aeropostale? This collection, inspired by the hit show, features several boxy jackets.

The styles in the collection are created with different characters from the show in mind. This navy cropped jacket, with white piping, can take you through the rest of winter and into warmer temps. Wear it casually with a plaid or other patterned button-down, a sequined tee, or put it to work with a more conservative top for a casual Friday. It has a boxy shape when worn open. Or, button up for a more fitted silhouette.

Neutral is nice, but bright is bold! A boxy faux leather jacket, like this one, is a fun accent piece and can pair with more colors than you may first imagine. Turquoise plays well with neutrals along with many brights! Think canary yellow, orange, even red.

Forever 21 is also featuring the boxy silhouette. An animal print jacket like this one can take any outfit from ordinary to standout. Wear it now in place of a sweater and as outerwear as we get closer to spring.

Cheers to three trends in one — boxy shape, animal print and sequins. Wear a cropped sweater like this one from Forever 21 with any color long sleeve fitted tee.

The boxy trend is also turning up at Gap. Note the cut on this casual colorblock sweater. It’s available in multiple hues.

A touch of grey adds a softness to your wardrobe. Like some of the other jackets, one like this can be used inside now and outerwear later.

Some of the boxy styles are more form fitting than others.

GURU Tip: If you’re doing a looser boxy top, balance the style with a fitted bottom.
