Lavender Blond: Mixing prints and textures

mixing prints and textures

Print mixing and texture layering can add outfit options and an edgy contrast to to your everyday style. It’s a skill that takes honing, but once mastered can refresh everyday essentials such as the striped sweater. A basic sweater looks effortless and casual when worn with a pastel knee length skirt. The bold dark stripes are ideal with a small busy floral print. Wearing two large prints is tricky and can look too cluttered. I love a thick nubby sweater with a breezy chiffon skirt. Break out your black opaque tights and booties and you have yourself a fall staple Next, we have brocade. One of my favorite styles that adds a sense of old Hollywood elegance. When paired with a rust toned satin skinny pant the look is instantly modernized. This is perfect for when you need to look a bit dressier than normal. My final set is an orange red peplum blouse with leopard print bow belt paired with blue j.crew plaid pants. This look is not for the faint at heart but can look so chic if pulled off correctly. Pair with a leather bomber, subtle jewelry, and sky high heels to take you from day to night.
