1. Chilled vibes

In our before picture, the model has a simple, plain look. Let’s give this outfit that laid-back vibe!

Giedre transformed the look by switching out the long-sleeved black top for a white t-shirt to create a more chilled-out feel. A classic coat is a must as it elevates the t-shirt, creating a street-style vibe. The sneakers simplify the pleated, ladylike skirt and add a relaxed finish.

4. Finding balance

An oversized top in one color balances out the girly frills of the design. Giedre also rolled up the pants to reveal the ankles, which adds a bit of definition to a loose outfit.

5. Neutral color palette

In the before look, the model's outfit had too many colors and details. Giedre transformed the look by sticking to a neutral color palette with a few details in the way of the studs on the bag and scarf. The leather jacket and structured bag add a sophisticated element to this look.
