After I published my post ‘Tips for Mixing Plaid and Stripes‘, I got an overwhelming response on the skirt in particular. With my readers asking me for other ways to style the skirt. So here is another look at how versatile this skirt really is. This time I have mixed plaid and leopard together!
Mixing prints is such a fun way to style your winter outfits. There are so many different types of prints and countless ways to mix and match without looking like a hot mess 🙂
In this post I will use the plaid skirt you all loved so much to create yet another outfit consisting of different prints! Here are my tips to mix plaid and leopard in one look.
Leopard Print is a Neutral
The best part about winter styling is the leopard print. This print technically acts as your neutral. It works well with plenty of colors and prints alike! In this look I have pulled in the print with my pretty pumps. You could also have it in a cardigan, a belt or a blouse. This print is definitely something your wardrobe needs!
Keep One Color Consistent
When mixing prints try to have one color flow through the entire look. This helps with making the look fit together and look less busy. In this look I have black flowing through my entire look! Using the J.Crew peplum top and a belt I have given my torso some definition over the plaid skirt while pulling in the consistent color.
Use Prints To Catch Attention!
Prints are a great way to draw attention to where you want. For instance if you want to highlight your torso then perhaps pick a printed blouse, I have decided to highlight my waist and hips so I have picked a printed skirt. When you’re petite trying to elongate your legs is key. So when you draw attention to your mini skirt then your legs look long!
Add a Solid To Break Up Prints
I am wearing a pair of black tights in one color to break up the prints. The best part about these tights is that they are textured and hence printed too! But since they are monochrome they serve me with both adding a print and breaking up the prints! Double win 🙂
I absolutely love plaid and so far I have given you tips on how to wear them two ways. I plan to give you plenty more 🙂 So perhaps by then end of reading these posts you’ll love plaid just as much as I do!
