To say I am obsessed with stripes would be an understatement. I am a believer that a well made and fitting nautical, horizontally striped shirt knows no season or time and therefore, will always be in style.
But every now and then, a broad must step out of her comfort zone. The newest look I am seeing and loving these days is mixing multiple bold prints to create a fun, preppy-meets-modern look. Since I am a sucker for not only striped shirts but also florals and polka dots, it's time I take the plunge. I encourage you to do the same, but not without some inspiring photos to help you along the way....
Stripes do the Polka
Stripes and polka dots are a match made in heaven when done right. My tip would be to ease into this look by starting with the same colors, like below.
You'll be surprised after one wear how much more confident you'll get in mixing. After that, bring on the color!
Make it Pretty with Flowers
Flowers- or in this case, florals - really do make everything better sometimes. I love the below looks for achieving a preppy and bold look at the same time. Florals are everywhere these days, from tops to bottoms to accessories like scarves.
Not for the weenie pattern-mixer, the stripe on stripe look is a tough one but when mastered, it's a showstopper. The below broads did it right.
