Stripes on Checks! Don’t mind if I do!

Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life said Bill Cunnigham.


And he was right! As I have said in an earlier post, I have always been afraid to mix prints. But, when I saw this top, I immediately thought of pairing it with this skirt. Now that I work at a place where I don’t have be conservative in my dressing anymore, I’m really enjoying myself coming up with different looks and pairing different silhouettes. Another thing I have tried out here is midi skirts. I have always worn skirts that are knee length or long. Somehow, the midi length was not something I was ever drawn to. A cousin of mine recently gave me a whole bunch of midi length skirts and since I’m in between sizes (My trousers don’t fit L) I started wearing then and I love it! I have even bought midi length skirts and dresses since!


Why this pairing works – If the colors look good together, more often than not the prints will look good together too. In general, mixing any patterns together is tricky, but it is a great way add a ton of new variety to your daily outfits! You just have to make sure you are careful when putting the two patterns together. Mixing these two patterns will give you a chance to make your clothing more personal and individualistic. If done correctly, the two patterns will look absolutely AMAZING together!



Why I think my look worked – The checks on the skirt was small so it didn’t clash with the stripes of the top. The accessories were simple. I had on simple earrings & shoes in burgundy which matched the top.
