Stripes & Leopard

Madewell Blazer (similar), J.Crew Factory Stripped Blouse, J.Crew Necklace (similar), Gap Jeans, Sam Edelman Loafers (similar), Kate Spade Purse 

A dressy casual outfit can easily become very bland. I like to keep things upbeat by adding a pattern or two and a sparkly accessory. Mixing patterns seems like a daunting task, but as long as you keep one similar element, it is actually easy. The easiest way to do this is by color. Here, I used black to keep the look cohesive. Stripes and leopard is an easy mix, but I'm looking forward to trying floral prints this spring. How comfortable do you feel with mixing patterns? 


  1. gorgeous, stripes and leopard are always a do in my book!
