Bold Stripes


I love the idea of mixing prints, but often find that I don't own the right combination of pieces to pull it off.  Sometimes the easiest approach is the simplest - a brightly striped blouse with a graphic clutch provides the perfect subtle contrast.





What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 blouse, trousers & necklace (here), The Limited clutch, Michael Kors watch, Vintage bracelets, LC Lauren Conrad pumps (here), Lips: Maybelline Fifth Ave Fuschia

I almost thought those pants were a maxi but they're not! They look awesome :O I love this pairing. The button detail on the front is perfect. :)

Totally thought you were wearing a maxi skirt in the first pic, haha. LOVE the prints. I did the same this weekend with leopard cardigan and patterned bag. Love your look!

Love the stripes! This outfit looks majorly expensive but I think it has a LOT to do with you and how you wear it! You don't even need photo editing- you are gorgeous!

Real Girl Glam said...

I think this is the perfect mixing of prints. The clutch adds a pop but it is not over the top! Great look!
