I hope you’re all having a lovely Valentine’s Day and spending it with someone dear to your soul, whether they are a parent, child, pet or lover! I personally don’t celebrate Valentine’s just because I feel like it’s a commercial holiday created to pressure people into buying ridiculously priced “tokens of affection.” I believe ANY day you receive the love of another is a blessing and a gift. However, this does not mean that I won’t dress for the occasion!
Today’s look is called “Wild at Heart” and basically it expresses my belief that fashion, like love, has no boundaries. The unexpected marriage of the leopard and heart prints create an ultra-chic and feminine look. The key to mixing prints is to create an abstract yet scaled look using colors that will help blend the prints. The key word is SCALE- once you have a large, bold print, be sure to pair it with a smaller, less dominant print. Two prints of equal scale will give your ensemble an overwhelming appearance that can be shocking to the eye. Go ahead! Mix your stripes with florals, your florals with leopards and your leopards with hearts, stars or polka-dots. I would not recommend mixing more than two prints at a time though, I believe mixing prints is like LOVE in that you can only really be in LOVE (mix) with one person (print) at a time. What’s your take on mixing prints? Love it or Hate it? Spill your heart out….Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by…. Muuuah!
