wear it // twenty-one

Patterns 1

I recently read somewhere that stripes and polka dots can be used as neutrals in an outfit. While I absolutely agree with that statement, I also think pairing the two together makes for an interesting mix of prints. Layering a chambray shirt under the dotted blouse gives a casual feel to the outfit – and those dotted socks sticking out from the cropped pants play up the dot pattern more. I got a lot of funny looks that day for my socks – but I think it was just the right amount of whimsy for an otherwise structured look. And those bracelets – new arm candy from CLR-MNSTR.

Wear it: to the library.

Are you a pattern mixer, or do you think that many prints is too much?
