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.
