Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!
How was your weekend? I hope it was fun and/or relaxing!
As we begin to near the start of fall (which is this week!) I'm paying tribute to two of the most popular trends of the summer season, banker stripes and gingham, by combining them into one outfit. I never thought to combined these two prints, until I saw my ultimate muse, Olivia Palermo, do it and so, you know I had to follow her lead! She added a statement purse to her look, I decided to add a statement shoe in a rich magenta shade, which I felt worked really well with the blue in the shirt.
This particular pattern mix would look great on those of you who wish to slim your upper body and/or bring focus to your legs. If your legs are the part of your body you feel most confident about, opt for shorts or skirts with patterns that will draw the eye there. To create an overall balanced effect to your body, I'd suggest opting for prints that are similar in scale, but different in color to still add notable contrast, aside from the fact that the prints are different. This is a great technique to use, especially if you're petite!
What trend did YOU love the most this summer?
Thanks for stopping by, my lovely friends, and I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!
