I never thought of myself as an animal print kind of gal, but after being sent this gorgeous Fraas leopard print scarf, I soon realized how easy it is to wear and not as difficult as I thought it would be to style. Turns out animal print and stripes work beautifully together!
I quickly adapted my new scarf to my look, teaming it up with a navy pencil skirt, a striped long sleeve shirt and a red belt.
Just a few months ago I would have been afraid to mix animal print and stripes or even wear too much color, but I have come around to taking more fashion risks and feel more comfortable experimenting with different looks.
My advice for pattern mixing is to start slow and small, just like when I talked about embracing color.
You may want to try accessories such as a headband or even a bracelet and then work your way down to a printed top, scarf or hell, just for for the jeans.
So don’t be afraid to explore your wild side and let the animal in you come out!
What’s your favorite pattern mixing combo?
