My Style: HOW TO WEAR STRIPES & FLORAL

The combo of stripes and floral print continues to be one of my favorites. I got this skirt years ago when I lived in NYC and had it altered by my trusty seamstress to fit higher and tighter on my waist- something I frequently did with cheap skirts. A few tips on mixing these prints below!

1. Wear complimentary colors- you don't want to clash. I try to pick one color that's in both my top & skirt (in this case blue).
2. Pick a color to tie your look together - here I used black, it's in my skirt, tights, bag and sunglasses.
3. Keep your accessories limited- you've already made a statement with your outfit so it's best to keep everything else simple, a necklace or bracelet or pair of studs is all you need.
