Pattern Play: Stripes and Florals

stripes and florals, fashion


One of the big trends for Spring 2013 is mixing patterns, and my favorite patterns to play with at the moment are stripes and florals. From actresses to style bloggers, the look has been seen making a strong statement around the web. To make a dramatic impact keep striped clothing black and white so the colors in the floral print you're wearing can pop. 

There is no denying the fact that I'm a pants girl 87% of the time - so of course when thinking about how I would style the trend I went directly to the printed pants sections of online stores. Black and white striped pants are a spring staple this year and when mixed with either a floral blazer or a floral print flat, they take on a fashion insider kind of look. Also hard to resist is an oh so comfy yet uber chic silk pajama-esque pant in a pattern of your liking.
