I am a fan of mixing classic pieces with modern ones. Below are some tips and tricks on how to mix trendy pieces with sophisticated modern items, creating your own unique look.
1. Start by Looking at the Classic Prints
Timeless prints belong in a modern wardrobe. No matter how innovative designers like to get, there are certain classic prints they turn to season after season: stripes, florals, plaid, animal prints and polka dots. Here, I built my outfit around a grey, high-waisted, plaid wrap skirt from Zaful. Even though this pattern screams traditionalist, the trendy wrap fit helps bring it to 2019.
2. Accessorize with Trend Setting Pieces
For the past few seasons, more is more when it comes to necklaces. Layered necklaces from chunky gold chains to vintage coin pendants, bloggers and It girls everywhere are obsessed. The trick is to layer different pendant lengths and have a focal piece. Here, I layered the one long necklace and honey collection necklace from mejuri.

3. Mix Decades
Modern style is the synthesis of styles from past eras. If you're going for a super futuristic and edgy look, try pairing it with a classic staple. For this outfit, I completed the look by adding my Chanel Wallet on Chain. Similar to the classic flap, but more compact and has a much daintier chain.
MINI REVIEW OF CHANEL WOC
Also known as simply “the WOC”, the Chanel Wallet on Chain is a win-win bag. Available in a variety of styles, colours, finishes, and price points, the WOC is the most versatile Chanel bag you’ll ever own, as carrying one could be considered as the equivalent of wearing a cross-body bag, a shoulder bag, a messenger bag, a clutch, and a wallet, just all in one! It's available online and in select Chanel boutiques. FYI, I got mine in black caviar leather with gold hardware. There's usually a waitlist for this specific combo but it's definitely worth it.
