Happy Monday, readers! I decided on a mismatching look this Monday when I wore a blue shirt, green skirt, and orange shoes. Somehow, all of the bold colors worked together to create a work appropriate mismatched look!
The only thing I did not love about this look was how easily the skirt wrinkled. I took my photos early in the day and it already was wrinkled! In retrospect, I am not sure I would buy that type of fabric again in a skirt for that reason. Oh well, live and learn!
Top: Ann Taylor ($17 marked down from $44)
Skirt: Ann Taylor ($20 marked down from approx $90)
Shoes: Dolce Vita at Bloomingdale’s outlet ($17 marked down from $100)
Necklace: Zegna Jewelry (won it!)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Mixing patterns, prints, and colors is very popular right now. Even though the colors were all different, they were all similar bold hues. I did not, for example, include any neon or pastel colors. The best part about this trend is you can mismatch as much as you want, and remain on trend! One of my girlfriends calls these looks my “power clashing” outfits, which I think perfectly describes the trend.
If you want to mix prints and patterns, this is a good article for more information on how to do it:
2) I kept this look from seeming too mismatched by adding a statement necklace that matched my top. Additionally, the statement necklace added visual interest to an outfit that would not have “popped” without some type of additional texture. The necklace is handmade, and thus, is one of a kind, but Zegna Jewelry has many more beautiful one of a kind pieces.
