Striped puff skirt & Polka dot blouse: Stripes & Spots

How to mix Stripes & Spots

Hope y’all had a lovely week and surviving the terrible weather. My week was a bit busy, running errands and having meetings left & right but apart from that, I can’t complain. 

I wore this ensemble a few days ago when I paired my mini striped puff/skater skirt with a polka dot blouse (seen here), stocking & silver cap toe heels. Nowadays I have been experimenting with skater/puff skirts (also worn here) which have surprisingly turned out to be okay. Spots and stripes are having a moment in the fashion world thanks to  Burberry prorsum SS14 collection.

Mixing prints & patterns is fun, easy and will allow you to create numerous outfits from your closet. If you’re a newbie to this trend, fear not as we are here to help you. You can start off by incorporating prints & patterns with your accessories or wear prints & patterns in small doses.  Once you have gained confidence you can go ahead and mix big patterns & prints together for a statement look.
