Mixing Prints

I hope you are all having a good start to your week! As I am writing this I am currently in the train going to work. I am going to make this short and sweet. These pictures were taken yesterday after church. My brother and I went to his old high school. He thought the pictures would look better with the trees in the background. He was right! I also have to say, his photography skills have gotten a lot better (partially due to yours truly) but he really stepped up with these pictures. #ProudSister. 

Let’s get to this outfit. I wanted an outfit that gave office wear vibes with a casual twist. Our church is very causal but I wanted to look put together and play around with mixing prints. The best way to wear two different prints is to pull the attraction away from the key pieces. The key pieces of clothing that have prints in this look are minimal and do not consume the whole outfit. By pairing this striped shirt with cheetah print shoes and throwing on a grey jacket, this dulls down the pieces and allows the opposing prints to work well together. Something else to keep in mind is when mixing prints make sure the colors do not clash. I paired black, white and grey therefore these minimal hues will not clash with a print as bold as cheetah.
