How I mixed the floral and leopard prints

In this outfit, I again mixed prints building on styling the animal print trend with an eternal summer classic, a floral dress. This time I wore a leopard cardigan as a sweater as temperatures were just in the 50s (10-15oC).

However, to look ageless in floral prints over 40 you need some know how. Anything too natural or of same size as the animal print wouldn’t work. Also you have to consider the style of the floral print. Small regular florals read little girl or gamine style. This style won’t work with leopard print which reads grown-up.

Why mixing these prints works

The two pattern work together as they have quite different size, and the nude of the cardigan and dress ground the look. Both pieces also have black in common. The plateau sandals pick up the orange of the floral print dress. The wooden watch and the cork of the sandals do the same for the brown shades of the cardigan.

Thanks to those of you who linked up last week. It was a big, great party. The link you clicked the most was by Alma from The Cheapskate – a new face to this party. My favorite OOTD was by Duc from 14 Shades of Grey. I love the Southern France Vacation in the Provence vibe of this look. It sends me down memory lane.
