When we shared our list of our 5 best kept styling secrets in 2017 we just about broke the Internet, so today we’re back, taking a few more style secrets out of the vault.
Calexico is all about chic, timeless dressing that feels on point no matter where you are in the world, and there are a few basic principles we turn to time and time again when getting dressed.
#1 Do Clash Prints
The one fashion rule we always break, clashing prints takes confidence, but is actually easier than it looks. The secret? Keep your prints in the same colour family and you can’t go wrong.

#2 When In Doubt, Add Leopard Print
You’ve heard it here before, but we’re not done shouting the virtues of this versatile print. More of a neutral than a true print, a hint of leopard works perfectly as an accessory to inject some fun and personality into your look. Just try and feel average in a leopard print loafer!

#3 A Statement Belt Fixes Just About Everything
If your outfit if feeling a bit ‘meh’ there’s one secret ingredient we can’t go past: a leather belt. Calexico stocks a range of leather belts from around the world, and while we hate to play favourites, the Nicky Belt – a belt designed exclusively for Calexico by Italian leather masters Post & Co and only available in store – is our go-to when we’re stuck for outfit ideas. Your jeans-and-a-tee uniform have finally met their match.
#4 Channel Your Inner Rock Chic In A Silk Scarf
A beloved style hack of rock-chic celebs the world over – we’re looking at you, Kate Moss – adding a skinny silk scarf to your look is one of our favourite accessory updates. Pair back with a blazer and leather skinnies for a night out, or simply throw on with a tee and jeans for an effortless day look.
