Mixing prints, patterns and fabrics has always been a favorite of mine but lately I've had a few questions on how to pull this trend off. First and foremost treat stripes as a neutral! I swear by this! It's nearly impossible to go wrong when using stripes as your dominate print. They pair well with polka dot, floral, plaid, leopard, check, ect. Keeping in mind the second print or pattern you choose is just to accent, it's usually best to go with something smaller in size. For example this AEO stripe sweater is my prominent piece (currently 50% off and comes in 3 colors) so I went with this geometric print neckerchief. It also helps to keep your fabrics in the same color family. While I didn't follow this guideline above, I did pick a scarf with similar colors to that of the embroidery in my skirt, which ties the whole look together. Remember these are suggestions to get you started, just have fun with it! I've tried combinations that I would never really have imagined working together and they do. 

Hows the start of your 2017 going? I made New Years resolutions/goals for every aspect of my life this year.
Faith, Marriage, Blog, Fitness. There is something so exciting about getting the chance to wipe the slate clean and have a fresh new start! The prospect that this year could be the best one yet, don't you agree? 

Thanks to American Eagle for sponsoring today's post!
