Outfit of The Day For July 25, 2012. How To Mix Prints

July 25, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day

I am into mixing prints this summer and I used the same guidelines I have in the past for my outfit today. It is best to start with a common color. This time the common color I am using is brown. Animal prints work really well when you mix prints, so I started with this medium sized leopard print skirt from Club Monaco. I had this super inexpensive bargain top from a Burlington Coat Factory Outlet, by Jonathan Martin (Remember this brand? Did I make you laugh?) in a large paisley print on a brown background. I wore a Cynthia Rowley scarf in a geometric large print as a sash, which picked up some of the colors in the paisley, the orange and the gold. The color black is not in any of these pieces, but I like how the punch of black in my handbag and shoes work with the rest of the outfit.
