Mixing animal print with plaid is an It trend

My regular readers know that I love mixing prints and patterns/a>.

Why this outfit works

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.

Giraffe is a not so often seen animal print, but it is easy to style. It for sure turns head and gives you an entrance. Of course, it is a unique style statement!

P.S. Like these outfit inspirations, it would help me if you pinned them to your own Pinterest board. It’s a great way that your friends, family, and others can see them too.
