IMG_5384 I don’t know how exactly, so don’t ask me why, but in my book stripes & leopard print are the all great and glorious pattern neutralizers. They seem to not match, but go with just about everything. A great nautical-based stripe that oozes classic chic injects a little Jackie-O style to any outfit. Then, on the other side of the closet, we have the wild-card pattern known as leopard. The combination of a variety of neautrals (tan, beige, black and brown) naturally lean itself for being an extremely versatile pattern. I will admit, I have a love affair with leopard. Put the two together and not only are you pattern-mixing like a pro, but you have a visually dynamic outfit from the instant the two are paired.
