OOTD

It seems that I jumped the band wagon on fall’s mixing prints trend. O.K., plaid is also a fall trend this year or every year or an evergreen? Who knows? 😉

In this OOTD, I mixed plaid and leopard print. It works because the blazer and print have both various shades of brown. I think of plaid a neutral. Thus, the same colors are not that important in this case than when mixing other prints and patterns. The only prints I would not mix with leopard prints are other animal prints. I don’t want to look like a walking ad for the zoo. 😉

Do you like mixing prints and patterns? Would you mix animal prints? What is the fall trend that you jumped on?

Thanks to those of you who linked up last week. You are all so stylish! Obviously, every fashionista likes when guys know how to dress. 🙂 The Readers’ Fav OOTD goes to the link you clicked the most which was Terry’s OOTD from The Style of Terry. Jen from Fashionably Employed became My Fav OOTD of the last party. If someone had said that orange and burgundy look great together, I would have made a skeptical face. Her outfit proves that this color combination can look awesome. ❤
