Blossoms and Stripes

As you may know, pattern mixing is my go-to daily style vibe, so naturally this outfit from @chante_allday immediately caught my eye. She's 4 way pattern mixing here like a *boss*.

  1. Leopard print sunnies - almost a neutral in my book

  2. Bold floral AND

  3. Pinstripe stripe blouse - business, but make it bold

  4. Multi-directional pinstripe skirt - A+++++

If you're just getting started with pattern mixing, find two pieces united by a color or two and throw them together. Animal prints can often be mixed in for an easy third.

Recreating the Look, Secondhand First

While there were lots of cute ruffled/striped skirts, finding blouse as amazing as the original was one of my bigger challenges - a handful captured both the stripes and the floral, but mostly I defaulted to bold florals. In the preview of some of my faves below, you'll notice I also subbed the leopard print into the booties on some of my finds.

What Makes a Good Outfit?

As you can see, the elements this outfit is made up of are pretty straightforward. By choosing pieces that had a little extra style (multiple prints on the top, ruffled shape on the skirt) @chante_allday put together an outfit that's another great example of #upstyling
