Mixed Prints

It’s not uncommon for me to try something new.  After all, what is fashion about if not to try new things!  Today, I tried mixing a bold graphic print with a horizontal, black and white pencil skirt.  When mixing prints, black and white is a pretty easy palette to work with.  Here are the two items I decided to pair together:

Asos Monkey Print Dress, $18.34, asos.com

Women’s Striped Ponte Pencil Skirt, $22.99, target.com

I tucked the dress under a pencil skirt (I also wore the dress backwards!), threw a statement belt and blazer over it and finished the look off with some red pumps.

What do you think??  Did I print-mix successfully?!  Be sure to leave me a comment below to let me know what you thought.  Also, follow me on Instagram to find out where I wore this outfit today!

Until next time! Stay ‘Chic’!

      Aww, thank you so much!! It was definitely a risk, but it’s fun to try something new from time to time, so I figured I’d give it a shot!

    Really love this! The dress in the Asos link looks scary busy, but I love how you wear it.

    My first time here and I am definitely following you now!

      Ashley, yes, I agree! I only purchased it because I had seen it on someone else, but agree that it can appear crazy busy at first! I appreciate the compliment though!!
