Summer Stripes

Mixed Stripes Outfit

By now, you probably know that I’m a big proponent of mixed prints.  It’s a fun way get creative with your wardrobe and if you haven’t tried it yet, you should!  If you’re just starting out, start off with some stripes because they’re the easiest to pair: floral and stripes, leopard and stripes, random geometric patterns and stripes — you name it, you can pair it!

For something a little more advanced, try mixing two of the same prints in different (but complementing) sizes and colors.  A little striped cami paired with a colorful striped skirt?  It’s the recipe for a sizzling summer outfit.
