Pattern Play

One of my favorite posts on this blog is on "How to Mix Prints". For some reason I particularly like pattern mixing in the fall and winter - I guess when there is no color outside I feel like I need to create some visual stimulation with my outfit! 

I often think of leopard as a neutral - something that I can wear with everything. How do you primarily use leopard? As a statement piece, mixed with other patterns, or do you wear it in subtle ways (i.e. belts, scarves)?

    I think that dress is so darn cute. Love all your patterns!

  2. You are certainly quite the inspiration for girls like myself that are into mostly solid! Cute cardigan!

  3. Cute! I'm fairly new to leopard so I'm not at the point that it's a neutral. But I love mixing it with polka dots.

  4. I agree, leopard it totally a neutral! Love it with the printed dress and patterned tights.

  5. HOLLA! Yes to leutrals!

  6. Love the mixed prints. This ensemble is great. Very Gossip Girl.
