Can You Mix Giraffe with Other Prints or Patterns?

Sure you can. It’s a neutral that looks great with floral, stripes, plaid in all its variations. My regular readers know that I love mixing prints and patterns.

Why does this outfit work?

The trick is to stay in the color family and ground the mix with black. The latter, I did with the tights, booties and the long sleeve T-shirt worn under the sweater. The plaid vintage skirt picks up the gray and dark brown of the giraffe print. The Gucci belt repeats a color in the skirt too.
