STYLE| Ruffles, Prints & Feathers

Hiya, it’s payday week and I don’t know if anyone is more excited than I am because I have been looking forward to this week for some time.

On Saturday while organizing my closet, I found my mixed print pants I almost forgot I owned. I love trying new things with my style and mixing patterns and prints is one of my favourite things to do. So it would have been impossible for me to see a pant like this and not purchase it.

For a long time, there was a perception that patterns/prints could not be mixed. So once you had one patterned piece on, every other thing had to be plain to complement it. In recent times, this has changed and I’ve found myself admiring and even pairing different prints.

As usual, when I find a piece I haven’t worn in a while, I try to create a whole look for it and plan to wear it soon which is exactly what I did hehe.

I chose a red ruffle cold shoulder long sleeve top to pair with the pants. Red because black is expected. Other bright colours will have worked well too such as; mustard, pink and orange. For shoes, I opted for my feathered black sandals. The more drama, the better.

To accessorize, I chose silver; which is something I rarely do but I thought worked well with the entire outfit. I may have gone a bit overboard with it though but accessories, however minimal, always earn you extra points.
